Question about Symphonic SC319C 19 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Theres no vcr tape in the vcr, therefore the tv turns off by itself.

When there is no vcr tape in the vcr , the tv stays on for about a min then shuts itself off. but when there is a vcr tape in, the tv continues to shut off and meanwhile eat the vcr tape. why does it do this.?

Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!

TV wont stay on

The vcr carriage was probably damaged ( broken gear or carriage gear, etc ), As for repairing it, it may not be worth it and chances are, you won't find a new carriage for the unit. I have, in the past, disarmed the VCR unit and at least the customer could watch the TV. Thats not possible in every set, but it seems to work in the majority of them. Good Luck

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.

Emerson TV won't stay on

I am currently have the same problem . I just got off the phone with the support tech and he suggested unplugging TV for about 5 minutes and if that doesnt work to unplug TV for about 2 hours. He said that may reset the TV . I am waiting now. If it works , I will leave feedback.

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.

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.
