Re: tv turns on but will not play tape that is in the...
Some times you can hit the power and eject button about the same time and it will eject the tape try this a couple of times to see what happens if that does not work then you can take the back off after you unplug from outlet for ac there is a belt that is black that should look like a long ruberband turn the pullys one way or the other to eject the tape manualy.

Sounds like a typical Switched Mode Power Supply fault, or an internal thermal fault that is shutting down the power supply, over & over. Really you need to get it serviced. You need to get a firm "Quote" for repair, remember these days repair can often exceed replacement cost.
THERE IS A SENSOR SWITCH THAT TELLS THE MACHINE THE TAPE IS LOADED ... SOUNDS LIKE IT IS STUCK.
PROBLEM IS ACCESS WITH COMBO'S. THEY ARE A PAIN TO GET AT. THE WHOLE BACK COVER TO THE TV MOST OF THE TIME HAS TO BE REMOVED,...
I KNOW ITS NOT MUCH HELP BUT THE MANUFACTURES KNOW THAT... HOPE YOU CAN GET TO THE TRAY INSIDE.
I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.
It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
The set has a problem on the mechanical section of the VCR,it might be out of aligment or a part has gone bad completely and now needs to be replaced,dirty heads will not give you these symptoms,the power supply is sensing a problem and is doing what is suppose to do when it detects a problem,it seems that you only have a use for the TV unless you get the vcr repair.
