Question about Televison & Video
I dont know whats wrong with my TV, its fairly new, I have had it less than a year. It just started turning off by itself today. Now it wont stay on for longer than a few seconds and it turns off, it seems like the VCR is trying to eject a tape maybe, but there isnt a tape in it, and we havent watched a VHS tape in a very long time, as we are rarely home. Please help, is there a way that I could possibly disable my VCR from the combo, so that I dont have to worry with it? It shows up as SP-Count- 00:00:00.
A few seconds after I turn on my Emerson TV with a DVD/VCR combo, it turns right back off. Any one know why or what I can do?
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.

Thank you, solution #2 works! I was given an Emerson TV/DVD/VCR and it was turning itself off. I put a tape inside & now the power stays on! It won't work with the tape ejected, but works fine if a tape stays inside.

This is probably due to dry solders in the power supply area of the tv... next time when it powers off give it a whack on the side and see if will just light up for a moment.. If it doesn't just open the tv and check for dry solders, loose contacts and faulty capacitors.. PS:I would not task some one without experience in electronics to handle this one. This shouldn't cost you much even if you hire a tech anyway..
