Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying: Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input. Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in. Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device. Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo. (I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)
The elctromagnetic tape may be jammed inside. Open the front access to the VHS and inspect for some jams such as toys (if you have kids). You can try grabbing the VHS tape with something while pressing the eject button. Sometimes it needs some assistance to overcome the jam. Good luck!
Hi, For some reason the disk will not play. You push the eject button over and over again, but the disk slot will not open. Here's one solution... * 1 Turn off the DVD player. Wait a few minutes, turn the DVD player back on, and then press the "eject" button. If this does not work, turn it off and unplug the DVD player...while you keep pushing EJECT button plug the DVD and turn it on (your hand still on the eject..) is should come out.. * 2 ..if it does not eject , unplug the DVD player again, Remove the screws off DVD on the sides and take off the DVD casing. * 3 Look for the DVD holder inside the DVD player. This device holds the DVD in place while the DVD player reads the disk. * 4 Push the stuck DVD disk toward the front of the DVD player until the DVD ejects. Remember the DVD player is not on and some force ( gentle ! ) must be applied. * 5 While it is open,plug it on and place a DVD disc just to see if mechanism works properly.. * 6 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Put another DVD in to test whether the player is finally working .. Hope this helps!..

There is a mode switch operated mechanically after inserting the VHS tape. Locate it. First try using switch cleaning oil. If it does not work, then the mode switch has to be cleaned using very fine polish paper (specially used for cleaning electronic contacts) after dissembling.Warning:-Removing & fitting the mode switch is very tedious job. The sequence in which it operates is important. If the sequence goes wrong, it will damage the gears. If you are not sure do not carry out these repairs on your own. It is better as it is now. Try to get the service manual.
It is possible that the Tape mechanism is struck and so is shutting off the power to the unit. Since the power is shared it is possible that the cut off to the set is due to the error in the VHS player.
So in this case you will need to remove the VCR and get theentangled or the stuck up cassette from the player so as to reset the error. Also if there is a mechanical issue to the player must be checked.
Another posting said; Put both your vhs and blank dvd into the player. Go into VHS mode and press "Home" menu button. Scroll across to "Easy Menu" and select "Dubbing". Make sure you are at the place on your VHS where you want to record from and select the "Dubbing" button. Press the Stop button to finish transfering. When it has done recording file information, press eject once and select to finalize the disc. And that's it!
Remove power to the set - unplug the wall outlet. Remove the screws that attach the back cover. Remove the cover. Remove the cables that connect to the VHS drive to the TV main board. Remove the mounting screws that attaches the VHS drive to the set. Remove the VHS drive. Manually turn the take-up gear which is near a motor to allow the tape to mechanically eject the tape - do not force.
Take dvd/vcr combo aparts.Turn on the power to the machine,one hand move around the inter eject vcr port for those sensors,the other hand just keep pushing the eject button,keep doing this until the tape eject and come out.
