Question about Philips Televison & Video
SOURCE: Magnavox combo vcr dvd
What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject
The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.
The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!

Does the record button on the VCR work? If yes, then the problem is most likely related to your remote controller. Do you still have the manual? In the back of the manuals they usually provide programming codes for the remote - you could try reprogramming it or using a different code.
If on the other hand the record button on the vcr doesn't work either and also causes the tape to eject then you know the problem is on the vcr side. Is the tape write-protected, assuming it's a VHS system is the write protect tab on the tape removed?
