VCR kicks out cassettes

Recently, a video tape cassette got caught in the VCR of my TV/DVD/VCR combo. I got the cassette out, but now the VCR won't load a cassette. A cassette goes into the unit, but is kicked back out within 2 seconds of it being loaded into the VCR without playing the cassette. I took the back of the television off to see if any bits of tape were caught in the heads/rollers/etc.. It doesn't look like there's any stray bits of tape stuck in the mechanism, and as far as *I* know, tapes load fine when I insert them in the VCR. Anyone got any advice? Thanks!

Re: VCR kicks out cassettes

Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.

I have a problem conecting my sharp 25h-M60 with my DVD plyer.I have found solution on Fixya. They said I have to use VCR. My question is: What does VCR mean?

If your TV does not have AV inputs (RCA jacks for video and audio), you can't plug the DVD player directly in to the set. One solution is to connect the DVD player to a video cassette recorder (VCR) using the "line in" jacks on the VCR, then using the channel 3 or 4 output from the VCR to the TV. This solution may not work with discs that have copy protection, though, and will give you an unwatchable picture.

For sets with no AV input, you need an RF converter. This is a device that takes the video and audio signals from a DVD player or other device and makes a channel 3 or 4 TV signal to the TV's antenna connector. Converters are available at most retailers where you can buy televisions, as well as online.

Using remote to play video DVD

You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.

I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.

You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.

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
