Question about Goldstar GVR-DD1 VHS VCR
Main power button turns on both the TV & VCR. I power on, the vcr makes a running/slight grinding noise for about 5-10 seconds, then shuts completely off. VCR will not load a new tape either, automaticially or manually. It only will push in so far, but no reaction. When I power on, I can see the cogs, that would drive the tape, spinning ... but again, after 5-10 seconds it completely powers off. I would even be happy just using it for the TV, as it's hooked up to satelite, however it will not stay on for more than a few seconds, without powering off automatically.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
I resolve it ,it was a limit switch(black color plastic) on entrance of vcr the base was broken,use superbonder to fix it and clean the rest ofthem one is down two are on top

This is the problem with these combo units. When the VCR has
trouble (this sounds like a mechanical one) it inhibits the TV from
working as well cause they share the same power supply. It needs
a VCR expert to fix ya up.
I tell people all the time not to buy these combo units unless they really need the conveinience cause you get to throw away the TV when the VCR goes bad.
