Tv/vcr shuts down after 5 secs.

There is likely an issue in either the primary or the secondary power supply that is causing the TV to shut down. Unless you or someone you know is good at repairing switching power supplies, there's not much you can do to save this unit.

My vcr plays or records for 12 sec and shuts off then when i cut on the power it ejects the tape....also when i power the vcr with no tape a wheel is spinning in the back right corner whats wrong?

This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette loads and the take up spool does not turn then the machine will shut and rewind.
2. If the take up spool rotates but then it shuts down then the reel sensor at the bottom of the forward wheel can be faulty- there are opto devices or proximity sensors/magnetic type.
3. If the drum does not rotate it will shut down as well a fault in the SERVO section.
4. Defective HALL IC can shut the switching and so the servo will shut down the processor.
5. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
6. Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.

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.

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)
