Power shut off

TV/VCR turns on but about 10-15 seconds after it turns on it shuts off. everything looks to be fine on the component board. When i took it apart there was a belt broken so i put a new one on and after that the tv turns off after it has been on for 10-15 seconds.

Re: 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.

Magnavox tv/dvd/vcr combo model mwc24t5b i put a tape in the vcr hit play and the tv shuts off. everything else work fine on the tv.

Usually when that happened for me, it meant that one of my small children had also put a foreign object in the slot where the VHS tape goes. Any type of obstruction will cause the VCR to jam and force the television to shut off.

VCR plays 15 seconds, TV shuts off. Same without tape inserted

Sounds like a typical Switched Mode Power Supply fault, or an internal thermal fault that is shutting down the power supply, over & over. Really you need to get it serviced. You need to get a firm "Quote" for repair, remember these days repair can often exceed replacement cost.

Tv turns on but will not play tape that is in the machine. after

some times you can hit the power and eject button about the same time and it will eject the tape try this a couple of times to see what happens if that does not work then you can take the back off after you unplug from outlet for ac there is a belt that is black that should look like a long ruberband turn the pullys one way or the other to eject the tape manualy.

Tv turns itself off after bout ten seconds

Your over voltage circuits(hi-voltage and low voltage) are defective.When the voltage exceeds the specs it shuts off the tv.Unless your a service tech,you can't fix this.There are components on the main circuit tha t have to be changed.Sorry, no easy fix.

Emerson EWC 1302 Tv/VCR combo shuts down

I've seen problems like this with 2 tv/vcr combo sets before. in my case each time the sensors in the machine think there's a tape jammed, and it shuts down to prevent damage. if tihs is what's going on it should actually say onscreen that it's trying to eject a tape, whether there's one in or not.

WARNING: this fix may get the tv working again, but the vcr will not be usable.
if this is what you're seeing then step one would be to remove the tape (assuming there's one there at all), now turn it back on and see that: THIS DIDN'T FIX ANYTHING! that's where step 2 comes in, you need to probe around a bit, in my case this was very much a trial and error thing, and find which mechanical parts are in the wrong positions. you want everything in the position it should be with a tape ejected. with this done you should be able to turn the tv on without getting the eject message and having the tv turn off.

Power problem

Has this just started happening? What did you do just before this happened? You need to supply much more information, we are not mind readers! What's the make and model, this ain't a generic problem!

Stays on for 5 seconds, thinks it has a DVD or VHS tape in

I am afraid the set has a bad or broken tape transport, or better known as a bad tape carriage.

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
