Question about Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player VCR
When you put the VHS tape in it starts to play for 5 seconds and then stops and the power shuts off. When you turn it back on the tape ejects. I have used many different tapes with the same result.
You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.
Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.
What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.
This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.

This is usually caused by poor contact between the tape and heads or the tape fluctuating as it goes through. First try a cleaning tape and see if that improves matters.Then get a friend to show you how to clean the tape path with alcohol and q tips.I assume there is no picture disturbance? There could also be other reasons like the auto level not working properly but start with the basics.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Ro Power,
This might be due to the tape sensor malfunctioning. You will need a schematic, and multimeter, and a LED power meter to work on this problem. When the tape loads it causes an LED sensor to become blocked and then the sensor tells the control chip that a tape is present and the the controll chip allows the tape to continue playing, if the sensor does not work the signal never gets to the control chips and since other events happend and triggered the control chip the control chip looks at this as an error and the stops the tape , some units even eject the tape.
If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the VCR to a qualified shop and have them repair it.
I hope this helps,
