Re: something wrong

A jammed or defective VCR can cause this symptom if the TV is turning itself off within about 15 seconds of turn on. Otherwise, it could be anything from a bad capacitor in the power supply to a shorted component in the High Voltage/deflection circuits. In other words, time to replace it.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

This is probably due to dry solders in the power supply area of the tv... next time when it powers off give it a whack on the side and see if will just light up for a moment.. If it doesn't just open the tv and check for dry solders, loose contacts and faulty capacitors.. PS:I would not task some one without experience in electronics to handle this one. This shouldn't cost you much even if you hire a tech anyway..

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

scanning the channels would not have done damage, the tv probably just sensed the unplugging of the power as a ''spike'' in the power line. Just let it sit unplugged for a while and then plug it back in, should turn back on again. also, if you are on cable or such, the scanning of the channels should actually be done, in ordr to see all available channels when the vcr is not in use, or if not, just set it to channel 3 or 4 to see it through the cable box. ps.. In the future, don't buy tv/vcr / dvd comos, the main reason why most peole buy those things is so the kids will leave the bigger tv set alone, problem with that is- kids will be kids, and sooner than later they will stick something the player's slot and screw the unit up- that leaves the tv by itself, which they will not want to see if the player is not working. so you are out of both and the kids are back taking the bigger tv away from you. best thing is always to buy separate units (vcr/dvd player combo's or separate units are usually cheaper to buy separately along with a dedicated tv than one of those all in one units. something goes wrong, just fix or buy a replacement for the system. and you get to keep your own tv.

My Tv is turning off by itself

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
