    Thanks but I don't understand what your booklet is saying (terms are very technical) and I don't think it's specificly for the TVSC1320 Zenith TV/VCR all-in-one that I need hlep with. I need it explained in very simple, every day terms. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. My son is anxious to use his Xbox on this tv and he can't until I get the thomas the train vhs tape removed from the vcr inside the tv. Thanks again for your help. Happy Holidays too!

    The TV is on. It says eject T on a staticky screen. It doesn't eject and the tv shuts off in about 15 seconds or so. I took the back off the tv and got the tape out, not easy I might add.,,,,,. But the tv still does the same thing, it thinks the tape is still inside the vcr part of the tv unit. .

    It says Eject T on a static screen and then shuts off in about 15 seconds or so. I don't understand what's going on. I've tried turning it on and unplugging the power for 30 seconds then plugged it back in and turned it back on and the same thing happens all over and the tv shuts down automatically. P.S. Just an FYI,,,I always use surge protector plugs too.

    What do you think?
    Any Suggestions? Thanks again for all your help.

    Say, does the TV turn off because it is not able to eject the tape? Or the TV turns off and prevents the tape from ejecting?

    I suspect there is something wrong with the eject mechanism. The link to the guide I posted above explains how to free it but if you don't think you can do it, I would advise to get a technician to do it since if you do it wrong it can be easily damaged.

Vhs tape is stuck and message reads "tape

Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

Stuck tape in vhs/tv combo

Unplug the TVCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
