Question about Philips CCA134AT 13 in. Combo
Is there a way to get a stuck VHS tape out of a TV/VCR combo? I've taken the back off of the TV and pushed every lever that looks likely. I tried forcibly (gently) lifting the little plastic wheels that will bring the tape up, but no luck. I can't figure out how to get this thing out of the TV. Help! (p.s. what brilliant person decided to create a TV that would only work if the VCR was working?!!)

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

if you can't get the tape out enough to pull it very carefully out by hand, you'll have to bring it to a repair shop. the tape is probably twisted up inside and jammed.

The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?
