When a VCR encounters a problem with the drive mechanism the unit will shut itself off to prevent further damage. You should take the top cover off and look around at the mechanical section for damage. If you can't see anything, leaving the top off, insert a video and watch what happens to it. This will give you a clue to the problem.

Panasonic Ag-DV1000 mini DV deck shuts down after inserting tape


When there's a problem with the drive mechanism of a VCR it will shut down to prevent damage. All operations of a VCR are controlled by a computer chip. This is told what mode the mechanism is in by a Mode Switch. If this is faulty it can cause the machine to play up. Sometimes a spray of Video 40 on the mode switch can restore operation. However it will not correct the problem if the mechanism has any damage on it.

Every time i try and rewind tapes they stop after a few seconds and the vcr shuts off


There could be a problem with the drive system such as a worn belt or other damage. VCR's have a mode switch which tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. If the vcr can't perform correctly the mode switch tells the electronics to shut down. However mode switches can go wrong and give error readings to the electronics having the same effect. You need to check both the drive and mode switch.

Toshiba d-vr660 shuts off when video is inside


If the problem is the vcr section you load a tape and it shuts down, it probably is the idler assembly that is not transporting tape correctly. I recommend a vcr/tv tech to check the unit with an estimate.

My toshiba tv turns off on its own, sometimes it will stay on for a few hours, other times only after 5 minutes it will go of


Ok This may be due to having a heated CPU/MOTHERBOARD and can cause a fuse to shut down to stop further damage like when a computer detects problems. My solution would be to get an airated space and when it shuts down feel the back of the tv to feel for heat, open windows when turning on or blow a cool hairdryer into the back of it.

Some tapes will start and immediately shut down


the vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.
