I asked earlyer but i can't find my questin that was submitted earler today i gave you my email address with no results. I want to know where the nearest tv vcr reparemand is to Spencer okla my email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my phone No.is 580-782-2888 My mother is moving to Spincer Okla. and needs her vcr forward and reverse fixed,in her emerson tv/vcr combo
A common problem on this unit is the Mode Switch. It gets dirty or sometimes breaks and must be replaced - definitely not a job for the unexperienced. If you mess up just a tiny bit, especially during re-assembly, your VCR unit will never work right ! Sorry for the bad news.
I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.
Ida oh Ida................it won"t be you that removes the tape! It should be the Technician you offer $25 to do it for you. It can usually be done with the right gear and often without major damage to the tape itself particularly if what is on it is very important to you! At the same time you may learn if the repair is worth it.
Did the tape go all the way in? If it didn't make it all the way in, try lightly pushing on both ends of the tape to even it out if it is crooked inside the tape slot. If it did go all the way in, and won't release at all, try pressing down on the top of the tape in the slot. Make sure it is evenly positioned in the tape holder.
If it started to come out, but didn't make it all the way out, try doing the same as before by pushing on both ends of the tape to even it out or get it further in to try ejecting again.
I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.
