I insert the tape and it stops and the power shuts off. If i turn the power on, it ejects the tape

This sounds like a problem caused by the Mode Switch. These in VCR's can cause all sorts of odd things. The switch can become faulty, or just get dirt in it. The switch tells the electronics of the VCR which position the mechanical parts are in. If the electronics get conflicting information, then it will power down the VCR. Another cause of a good mode switch to give wrong info, is damage to the mechanism. This throws out the timing.
A spray of Servisol Video 40 on the switch will restore a dirty one. The other causes are more tricky. Since the whole thing will need to be set up again in position. This will most likely require the service manual as most VCR's are never set up in the eject mode! After any faulty parts are replaced of course!!!

VCR's have a thing called a mode switch. This tells the electronics of the machine want position the mechanical section is in. If it gets wrong signals then the VCR electronics power the machine down. These wrong signals are often caused by damage to any part of the VCR mechanical section. Perhaps in this case something to do with the carriage unit. But the switch itself can go wrong. A visual inspection inside might reveal damage to some part of the VCR.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv

Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    TV image goes off when VCR power turned on

    The vcr is connected in between the antenna (or cable) and the tv, and when it turns on its tuner takes control of the signal. Either:
    1) press the VCR/TV button on the VCR to let the signal go stright thru
    2) Tune the VCR to the channel you want to watch and set the TV to the VCR's input.
    3) If you use a coax cable connection to the TV, try switching the VCR to the other channel (3 or 4, switch in the back)
    4) Change the TV connection to RCA cables on the A/V inputs.
    Hope Ya Fix It!

    No power to DVD combo player. VCR OK.

    The power circuit for the DVD and the vcr are separate look for a open diode and transistor in the circuit that supply the DVD.GOOD LUCK.
