Question about Sylvania 6313CE 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

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?

    My TV will just shut off, doesnt matter if there is a VHS in it or not. It will stay on for about 5-15 seconds and will turn off.

    Is there anything i can do

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.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian
