Question about Sylvania 6313CB 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty

Anytime the TV is turned on it immediately goes through all the motions like a vhs tape was inserted.  It tries to play the "phantom tape" and then a couple of seconds later stops and tries to eject it.  And the cycle NEVER stops!  Play, stop, eject.  Over and over...and there's NO tape in the deck.  How do i make it stop?  I don't care if the VCR is functional - I never use it.  I just want to be able to watch the TV without the constant annoyance of the VCR noises...
Please help!!

Re: VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck...

The tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

The TV turns off when i put a VHS tape in the VCR. The tape will play for a few seconds, then the Power goes off. When i turn the Tv back on the tape immediately ejects.

Possibly have a tape drive motor issue it powers down to save itself .Thats the dickens with those combo sets they are hard to look at ,you have to take it half apart just to see whats going on

The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

When I try to record a VHS tape or play one it continually ejects the tape as soon as TV is turned on.

Try turning the TV on first and then inserting the tape into the VCR. You may be getting a small voltage spike that is causing your VCR to eject the tape.

turn on the machine. use your figure push on the cassette, when you feel the cassette can't go any farther (don't jam it),and hold it there. press the eject button, you may have to try this couple of times in order for the cassette to come out.
the cassette deck need to have the drive belt change.

Stuck VHS Tape/Power Issue

It sounds like the vcr is not completely loading the tape, and is overloading or getting confused. If you feel up to it, you can take the cover off the tv, find the tape loading mechanism, and 'help' the loading rollers along yourself... once the tape loads, eject it immediately, and you should be off and running again. Just be careful not to touch any electrical connections. If you're not comfortable with that, you're right, it's probably cheaper to get a newer tv - check with a local independent shop first, though, it should be a really quick fix.

My Tv is turning off by itself

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.
