Re: Tape stuck

To unlock the front panel of samsung TI-15x5 get a universal remote control which should have TV code=702. Set TV1=702 and you will be able to gain some control of the TV+VCR. To gain control of the setup menu you use VCR code=289 and you will find menu in one of the bottons.

VCR plays 15 seconds, TV shuts off. Same without tape inserted

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.

The VHS ate a tape, no power,wont eject, can't get it to work.

Are you asking how to get the tape back? Partial disassembly of the case (UNPLUGGED) would allow removal of the tape.
If you are asking how to repair a VCR, no one can tell you how to do that on a forum. VCRs have quite a number of moving parts, mostly driven by rubber belts. These stretch with time and the mechanisms quit working. Since a simple belt replacement costs as much as a cheap DVD player most people change to DVD at this point.
If you have high-personal-value videotapes (home movies) , these can be converted to DVDs by any local photo service and would last a long time in the new format. They will NOT copy commecial videotapes for you.

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty

the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.
