What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?


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?

    My Emerson EWC1301 just started turning itself off. It will turn on for about 15 seconds and then cut off on it's own. It just started doing this.

    My problem is similar - but it's a Symphonic 13" vcr combo. After it tried to start and stopped itself, it ended up not being able to power up at all.

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.

SOURCE: What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

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..

My lc320em2 just quit while my grandson was watching tv. I dont have a lot of funds to ship it back to emerson. they want 70 dollars. I need help. I cant afford and willing to try and fix it my self.


Could be an internal fuse or power supply failure. Either way, it's not worth spending 70 dollars to ship it back to Emerson for repair. Try to find a local shop.

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
