Question about Combination Televisions
A videocasette is stuck in the set and when one attempts to play it the screen reads'no cassette'
[I have been unable to jiggle it loose or the even open the case]
SOURCE: TV shuts off after 10 sec
TV/vcr combo units develop problems in the vcr section,what happens is the cassete assembly draws too much current then the tv senses this increase and it says NO and shuts down,you will not be able to use the vcr anyway because it has a problem and the tv will continue to shutdown until the vcr is repaired,I have seen combo units with the tv working only as long as the vcr is not use.Remove the light you have in the opening and hope the tv works fine by itself.Adding a light is not safe.I hope this inf.helps somehow.Good luck

there is what is called a "dew sensor" in a lot of vcr's that keep you from playing a tape if it senses moisture in the unit because a tape will stick to the video head and get all bunged up. sometimes they go bad and will keep you from playing a tape even when there is no moisture present. if your are electronically inclined you can take the back off and locate the dew sensor, then disconnect it. the constant whirring noise is the unit's way of trying to dry off the video head cylinder. the dew sensor, which is usally located behind the video head, is a dark grey thing about a half inch by half inch and has two wires going to it.

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.
