TV shuts off by itself

Everytime I put a vhs tape into the VCR and play it/rewind it, the TV shuts off. When I turn the TV back on, it ejects the tape. I've tried using different tapes, and unplugging it for a while, but it still does the same thing. Is there a way to fix this?

Re: TV shuts off by itself

I think that this might be a power supply problem. The VCR might be loading down the supply and causing the shut down. If you are going to try to fix this yourself I would shuuest you get a schematic and multimeter, and an oscilloscope, here is why, The schematic will tell you what voltages are normal, The multimeter will allow you to measure those voltages, the oscilloscope will allow you to test for ripple voltage which might be present riding on your dc voltage level. If you do not have access to this equipment or do not know how to use this type of equipment, I would suggest that you take the unit to a shop.

Vcr cuts my tv off after i put the tape in

The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem

Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.

VHS problem, any help?

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.

My Tv is turning off by itself

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.
