Question about Philips DVP3150
Keeps ejecting VCR tape after about 10 seconds
SOURCE: Power shuts off
The problem is the reel sensor or associated cricuitry. I am an electronic tech and could not figure out what was wrong. I replaced sensor and sensor emitter with no change. It was not the micro. I finally gave up and told the customer I could not repair unit. No schematic or parts available from Philips/Magnavox

you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

I returned it to Wal-Mart and got another one that I hope acts better. Perhaps if more of our electronic products were made in the U.S., Germany or Japan they'd be more dependable.

Try better quality VHS tapes or 6-hour tapes instead of 8-hour ones. I had this problem myself when I used 8 hour tapes, but haven't had any problems with the 6-hour ones.
