Question about Symphonic SC3813 13 in. TV/VCR Combo
It was working fine and i put a VCR tape in and it turned off in about 30 seconds. I turned it back on and it kept trying to eject itself (without me pushing eject) and after 30 seconds turned off. We finally got the tape out. It turned off again. When turning it on it tries ejecting when there is no tape in and it goes thru the ejecting process and turns it self off. This all happens in about 30 seconds. I have tried going to the menu, but i only have 30 seconds and by the time i get anywhere, it turns off. I have tried pushing stop and other buttons. Nothing happens.
This is usually a sign that a function has not completed or a switch has stuck in an incorrect position. eject can only happen if the sensor (either optical or mechanical senses that a tape is present. The swich might be stuck or the sensor might be blocked or bad. You can open up the unit and try to determine if the sensors are not being blocked by any of the mechanical parts of the unit. You will need the service docs to show you where the components are located. I hope this helps. Shuttle83
