I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which

The problem is with the vcr section, it is stuck in eject mode thinking there is a tape. This a mechanical problem that might be repairable. The tv and vcr share some of the same circuits, you can try resetting the tray in the out position as if it fully ejected the tape. Now if this does not work it means you have a gear timing problem or bad sensor.

Tape wont eject

Veri8fy that the belt on the side of the VCR mechanism is intact. If it is, then check that the motor works, by appying 12 volts to it,with the belt disconnected. If the motor works, it might be that your mode switch needs cleaning, and that takes some fancy unsoldering and soldering.

Check your mode switch position and your IR sensors on the sides. Both of those will send a tape inserted signal to the mP.

Tv vcr combo

The best way I can think of is to REMOVE the rubber band that loads the tape into the transport unit.Be KILLFULL (careful) the band is right next to the B+ (power supply) or the A\C 120volt
( and if u can find the replacement rubber bands, buy 2 kits)

VCR isn't work, can you help?

Nancy, From the sounds of it either the supply or takeup reel is not working and may be damaged. In fact that may be the reason you couldn't get the tape out... If the takeup reel doesn't spin there is a small sensor below it that recognizes that there is a malfunction and shuts the system down. That's usually far cheaper than unloading a whole tape inside or do some serious damage. This unit is similar in design and electronics as the Funai F3813C and Sylvania 3813LC, W3813LC, Symphonic WS3813C and a Magnavox CCz132. That said, I have worked on a few of the comparable models for something quite similar and it has never been a real expensive repair. i'd guess this one would be under $80 dollars. Just find a reputable shop to take it to... If you not sure where to find one goto: and type in your info. That's the National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn. Kinda like going to the AMA to find a doctor... Good Luck Bill
