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

It records but not watchable, cannot put in a tape from another machine and watch it.


Try cleaning the heads with a wet-type cleaning cassette. You're describing a classic symptom of dirty heads. This is commonly caused by using a tape that's worn and leaves some of its oxide surface on the head.

Toshiba 13 inch tv/vcr quits recording audio


Does the audio "cutout" suddenly, or does it ''drift" off and on?...accordianman

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!

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem


Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.

EWC1304 VHS tape shuts off entire system


You probably have a bad or dirty mode select switch. Another possibility would be a gear out of time if a tape was forced in too quickly.

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.

TV shuts off when VCR tries to eject cassette


This is a hard call man. Some combos have to be laid down when taking the back off or it will collapse when you do take off the back, falling over backwards as they are top heavy. These units are so tight inside by means of no room to work so alot of maufacturers have extension cables to attach to componets ie vcr deck and main chassis. After they take them apart. If you really feel confident then lay the set down on its face and take off the back and after the back is off look to see in the deck part if the tape has come out of the cassette or if it all looks normal. If you see the tape out of the cassette ,cut off the tape on both sides and see if the tape will eject. It it does then go back in after and remove the remainder of the old tape. Now it could have been a bad tape but most likly something is wrong with the mechanism. If you cant see anything out of norm, dont try to force the tape out as you WILL cause more damage and most likely unrepairable. Really there are no user serviceable parts inside these buggers so the best advise I can give ya is to disconnect the thing and take it into your repair shop for an estimate!! Good Luck

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
