This sounds like it could be a tape sensor problem. Granted this is the worse case, but this is what this sounds like. In VCRs as the tape is pulled around the drum, a sensor determines if the tape is in the proper position. However if the tape is not the sensor triggers an unload sequence which unloads the tape and sometimes auto ejects the tape. I would forst try to use another tape just to see that it is not a tape problem (which 9 times out of 10 it will not be). After trying the new tape, see if you can get this looked at, by a qualified technician. I have done these repairs before and if it is an optical sensor what usually happens is magnetic dust gets on the sensor lens and causes problems, if the sensor is the switch type the switch tends to get out of alignment and needs to be set correctly or replaced. I hope this helps

Old Sylvania Trusurround SRS TV 4 head VHS and DVD combo, shuts off seconds after being turned on. No picture, just a black screen for a few seconds then it turns off.

good luck with that one I would consider buying a new system before wasting money on an old unit that will fail again sooner than later .

The TV turns off when i put a VHS tape in the VCR. The tape will play for a few seconds, then the Power goes off. When i turn the Tv back on the tape immediately ejects.

Possibly have a tape drive motor issue it powers down to save itself .Thats the dickens with those combo sets they are hard to look at ,you have to take it half apart just to see whats going on

I have 20MC4306. Recently when you turn it off it turns itself back on. Also when you turn it on shuts off after 2 seconds. Tried putting in a video vhs then press play and wait few seconds and hit...

Sometimes when the TV recives a brodcast signal for a new update to the mainframes firmware, it will have to turn itself on to install/recive the update and aslong as it is connected to a power source it can do this. hope this helped answer your question. Have a good day :)

Vcr cuts my tv off after i put the tape in

The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

When I try to record a VHS tape or play one it continually ejects the tape as soon as TV is turned on.

Try turning the TV on first and then inserting the tape into the VCR. You may be getting a small voltage spike that is causing your VCR to eject the tape.

Magnavox TV/DVD/VCR combo keeps turning off

So after calling a tv repair guy and listening to him tell me about how it is probably something to do with the transistor and it will cost me about 150 dollars to fix ( which I could buy a new tv for that price since it is only a 19 inch) I decided to look online at this issue of turning off after 5-10 seconds. I read about it being an issue with the VCR sensor, so I don't know about it being some LED that you have to replace because I just messed around with a VHS and moving the little white bar thingy on the right just inside the door for the VHS around a bit, and Voila it started working right again. I think maybe my son tripped something by sticking things in there and whatever I touched fixed it. So my advice is to just stick a VHS in and take it back out a few times and play with a few things inside and to the right. It didn't take long for it to work for me.

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty

the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

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.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode

Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.
