TV shuts off after 10 sec

TV shuts off when VCR tries to eject cassette shuts off after 10 to 20 seconds. We tried many things but after using a flashlight to look inside it stayed on for a while. Now we use little christmaslights at the open VCR opening and the TV stayes on.But I cannot use the VCR with the open front. There must be another solution even if it works fine. A little bulb maybe, but where??????????And how to install???

Re: TV shuts off after 10 sec

TV/vcr combo units develop problems in the vcr section,what happens is the cassete assembly draws too much current then the tv senses this increase and it says NO and shuts down,you will not be able to use the vcr anyway because it has a problem and the tv will continue to shutdown until the vcr is repaired,I have seen combo units with the tv working only as long as the vcr is not use.Remove the light you have in the opening and hope the tv works fine by itself.Adding a light is not safe.I hope this inf.helps somehow.Good luck

I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which

The problem is with the vcr section, it is stuck in eject mode thinking there is a tape. This a mechanical problem that might be repairable. The tv and vcr share some of the same circuits, you can try resetting the tray in the out position as if it fully ejected the tape. Now if this does not work it means you have a gear timing problem or bad sensor.

We just bought a used Symphonic 13" TV/VCR. turns on for 3 seconds and shuts off! Help. There's a tape stuck in it also. Help! Thanks, Jay
This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an Akai, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. In any event, this is most likely, a fairly inexpensive repair, but as related ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repair.

TV keeps shutting off after 10 seconds

It's possible from what you described that your center LED or prisim was broken when the tape was extracted. Like many others these units depend on a series of startup checks and one being the tape path. On the play table of the VCR is a center prisim/LED and two light sensitive diodes on either side of the tape loading assembly. If these diodes do not detect the infared beam the unit will go into shutdown. I'd check there and let me know. Bill

Power shut off

The set is still sensin a problem thats why it shuts off, in this units the problem is in the vcr section,check the cassette assambly sometimes is jammed and it will not load or one side of the cassette tray is pushed in too far or misaligned.It will continuo to shutdown until the problem is corrected.Be careful when working on it.

TV shuts off when VCR tries to eject cassette

This is a hard call man. Some combos have to be laid down when taking the back off or it will collapse when you do take off the back, falling over backwards as they are top heavy. These units are so tight inside by means of no room to work so alot of maufacturers have extension cables to attach to componets ie vcr deck and main chassis. After they take them apart. If you really feel confident then lay the set down on its face and take off the back and after the back is off look to see in the deck part if the tape has come out of the cassette or if it all looks normal. If you see the tape out of the cassette ,cut off the tape on both sides and see if the tape will eject. It it does then go back in after and remove the remainder of the old tape. Now it could have been a bad tape but most likly something is wrong with the mechanism. If you cant see anything out of norm, dont try to force the tape out as you WILL cause more damage and most likely unrepairable. Really there are no user serviceable parts inside these buggers so the best advise I can give ya is to disconnect the thing and take it into your repair shop for an estimate!! Good Luck
