LXI 13'' tv/viedo cassette recorder turns off

VCR door will not open when trying to insert tape. It powers up, then cuts itself off - -sounds like a tape is running when empty. This is a 1994 TV, but it has absoutely been protected from dust when not in use.

Some VCR's use a load belt, unsure of LXI however, the fault sounds like a load belt or as Steve mentioned the mode switch, I would replace all belts, clean and grease the mechanism, DO NOT get any grease on the drum, guides or anywhere the tape loads. When replacing the load belt you need to align the arrows on the cogs as per manual, also look for cracks on any cogs. hope that helps ....Phil

Most likely cause is a dirty mode switch,the contacts inside it oxidise with age.cleaning or replacing is for a tech only really,as the vast majority of these units are a nightmare to work on.problem usually starts off intermittent,with random tape chewing,etc.hope this helps somewhat.....steve

VCR ejecting my cassettes


Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.

I have the manual. Are you trying to record something live? if so:

1) Turn on both the DVD/VCR and your TV.
2) Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen (this is usually something like 'input 1' or 'line 1' and so forth)
3) On your remote, set TV/DVD-VIDEO to DVD-Video, then press SELECT VIDEO to control the VCR. These buttons are at the upper left hand corner of the remote controller.
4) To record from a cable box, turn it on.
5) make sure the tape is longer than the total recording time.
6) insert a tape into the VCR.
7) press CH +/- on the remote to select the channel or line input video source to record.
8) select the tape speed SP/EP (SP provides better quality, EP provides three times the recording time as SP)
9) Press the record button to start recording. The VCR display will display the message REC.

Help!


My guess is that the prisim broken or led (light emitting diode) below it has failed so the vcr is stuck in an endless load...
It will have to be taken apart and the tape in it manually unloaded by turning the load motor counter clockwise. Then visually inspect the prisim and test the diode.
If any of this sounds too foreign take it to a good shop and they'll have it back and running in no time..
Hope this helps!

TV shuts itself off as soon as I press 'play' on video.


The set has a problem on the mechanical section of the VCR,it might be out of aligment or a part has gone bad completely and now needs to be replaced,dirty heads will not give you these symptoms,the power supply is sensing a problem and is doing what is suppose to do when it detects a problem,it seems that you only have a use for the TV unless you get the vcr repair.

Audio on recorded tape


you could try a wet type tape head cleaner but I doubt if that will help but it couldnt hurt. These combo units are built so tight together I wouldnt recomend that you try to open it. I would though look through the front door and look toward the right side and see if something got inserted into the machine and is blocking the audio head. If this dosent get you back audio then you have a curcuit problem and you are gonna need to take her in for an estimate Good Luck
