Question about Philips Magnavox 20MC4304 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Thre is no DVD or VHS tape in the TV, but the screen gives the option to eject? Apparently the tv thinks there is one inside?? TV comes on for 5-10 seconds, then shuts off. Has anyone else had this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
Replace the ir diode (D1224) under the vcr section. its a clear looking led (bulb like) this solved my problem ... as it was previously suggested as one of the solutions. vcr know function as well as the rest of the tv---- you need to have some background in this work or it will be tough to do .......
But thanks for the help it took care of my problem

This problem can be solved by replacing the IR diode on the main board, D1224. It is leaky causing the tape end sensors to think there is a tape in the unit...... Good luck

Just a workaround, but I found that if you insert a tape in the VCR and then press STOP, that the tv will not turn off by itself. Kinda dumb, but so far it works.

I am afraid the set has a bad or broken tape transport, or better known as a bad tape carriage.
