SOURCE: Tape Loading Error
theres a loading problem with the mechanism. It could be a nylon cam thats cracked and thrown it out of mechanical alighnment??? this is not for the handy man repairer!!! this should be taken to a repair shop for an estimate! as there are hundreds of volts inside a tv that can cause you to be seriously killed!!

SOURCE: vcr trouble
this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.

It sounds like the VCR mode switch is dirty. This is located on the PCB, underneath the right hand side of the VCR mechanism. If you do not know what you are doing, I do not recommend trying to clean it yourself. You have to remove the VCR from the board, and pop the wheel off the top of the switch. Use a cotton swab with a bit of alcohol to clean it, and then put a dab of WD-40 on it. Good luck. Also, you might want to tryt to reset the VCR mechanism to the fully ejected position if it is not there already.

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

Your Magnavox Combo has mechanical problems in its VCR mechanism, which jams or not run properly. If the Casett tape doesn't run properly, the take up reel sensor inide it will sense this situation ans "Stop", or "End", and will automatically ejects it. If the mcchanism has some trouble with it, there are sensors to detect the trouble. and will stop it from preventing further damages ot the casette tape. It may be due to any motor trouble, shorted or opened low voltage regulators, ans so on. As it is a multi combo, there is no one sentence answer about the detection of this problem. We have to detach section by section to detect which section causes the overload to power supply. The wiring and schematics will be very complicated that you must have well experienced to do this job, otherwise total failure will be the result.
If you have enough awareness in electronics, and have some practical experience, and knoledge in this case, inform me, I'll assist you in this case. Soemtimes we are now thousands of miles apart. There will be a limitation for an online asistance you know.
Anyway if you have confidence and have a concept of soldering, and have a very good quality Digital Multimeter; inform me by Fixya. I'm ready to assit you. OK.
