    I have the same problem- This is not considered a re-call?
    I turn on the tv, the vcr goes click, click, click, then the tv shuts itself off.

    I started having the same problem myself today. Is it worth fixing? I know sometimes the repair person wants to charge you so much, that it's makes more sense to just spend the money on a new T.V. I've learned, next time no combo.

Hello sjz4923,
I understand your frustration, however you are not going to want to hear this so what I'll do is just come out and explain why what you are asking is almost impossible, and I'll offer a solution that will help you possibly repair this problem.

The term tv/dvd/vcr combo is a misnomer. The term implies that there are three components in this TV set (TV, VCR, DVD) when in reality there are 1 and 1/2 components in this unit. The TV section of this set is actually the VCR section (RF tuner, IF processor, Video and audio, sync section) what is added to make the TV part of this is the deflection, and High voltage section to power and control the signal to the CRT. As far as the DVD section this basically is a DVD player without the video output, but rather the analog video plugs into the VCR video out. You do have aux ports for DVD video out but these may or may not be amplified video. In a nut shell The TV and the VCR are the same electronics except for the deflection and HV circuits, and the DVD and VCR are separate except for the audio and video main inputs.

So what you are asking is almost impossible since the TV and VCR are the circuit.

Now to repair your problem. What is happening is that the signal that the circuit uses to tell that the VCR carriage is connected properly is not being sensed, what this could mean is the the signal processor is bad or the position control is malfunctioning. The first thing I would do is to make sure that the position control (a wheel on the circuit board which the carriage sets on top of and a peg from the carriage sets into a hole on the wheel) is in sync with the carriage wheel.

Also if you have the equipment you can check the sync signal created by the control and compare it with the signal on the schematic of the TV.

Now having said all of this, if you don't have a background in electronics I would suggest that you get a TV repair technician to work on this problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

I need the code to program the remote to an emmerson ewf2006 tv codes


Hello
You haven't specified whether it is a TV/DVD combo or TV/VCR combo.
Four digit universal remote codes for Emerson TV/VCR combo are:
0227 0233 0254 0264
0265 0266 0310 0325 [0039 0252]
[0147 0250] [0147 0257]
For TV/DVD combo is: 0456
Where the code is listed as [### ###] the first is for the TV and the second is for the VCR. Otherwise just the one code operates both the TV and the VCR
For Combo Devices, in many cases a single code operates both parts of the device (e.g. the TV and the VCR). In other cases you need to set up two codes. For example, one for the TV and one for the VCR. Where codes are shown below as [### ###] the first code operates the first part of the device's name, and the second code operates the second part. E.G., for a TV/VCR device, the first code operates the TV and the second code operates the VCR

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?


This is probably due to dry solders in the power supply area of the tv... next time when it powers off give it a whack on the side and see if will just light up for a moment.. If it doesn't just open the tv and check for dry solders, loose contacts and faulty capacitors.. PS:I would not task some one without experience in electronics to handle this one. This shouldn't cost you much even if you hire a tech anyway..

Programming cable channels for emerson tv vcr dvd combo


To see RCA's code list you probably need their website but Emerson is one of several names now owned and built by Funai, who also builds Symphonic & Sylvania. 
You might want to try those codes with your set.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?


I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
