1 Answer

Clicking sound from VCR area

We haven't been using the VCR portion much, but it suddenly started making a very loud clicking sound and then turned off. In trying to turn it back on, it displays "EJECT C" ???? We turned it off, but sometimes it comes back on by itself!!!!

There is a infra red LED inside the unit that fails. this LED sends infra red signals to 3 other sensors for load and stop and counter. when this LED fails the mechanism thinks you are loading a tape. have a tech replace this LED.

My RCA T19060GY TV/VCR will not stay on. When I push the power button on the unit itself (I don't have the remote.), the green indicator light comes on for two seconds and I hear to click sounds


the clicking sound is due to the relay is getting turn on but doesn't stay because of bad component in the power supply board or in the main board. you must check first the bridge type diode and FET transistor using an analog or digital tester.

Disconnect it from power cable 30 mins, see if this reset works, for the rest sounds like you have a problem with the power unit.

Magnavox TV/DVD/VCR combo keeps turning off


So after calling a tv repair guy and listening to him tell me about how it is probably something to do with the transistor and it will cost me about 150 dollars to fix ( which I could buy a new tv for that price since it is only a 19 inch) I decided to look online at this issue of turning off after 5-10 seconds. I read about it being an issue with the VCR sensor, so I don't know about it being some LED that you have to replace because I just messed around with a VHS and moving the little white bar thingy on the right just inside the door for the VHS around a bit, and Voila it started working right again. I think maybe my son tripped something by sticking things in there and whatever I touched fixed it. So my advice is to just stick a VHS in and take it back out a few times and play with a few things inside and to the right. It didn't take long for it to work for me.

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape


The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

A black box pops up on the screen and just leaves the border area around the box available for viewing. It only happens on a few channels at a time and seems to alternate as to what channels are affected,...


MRS3309,
It sounds as though the closed captioning has some how gotten turned on. Not all programs are closed caption supported so the box will not show on every channel nor will it necessarily be on the same channel all day. Go into the menu on the tv and ensure the CC option is turned off. You may have to go into set up or preferences to locate the CC portion of the menu. I hope this assists you and thank you for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.

No sound


look if you have a DVD or VCR use its receiver! so plug your antenna into the eg:DVD/VCR then connect its audio outs(red)(white) to the tv's (AV)in area. then plug its image out (yellow) to the tv AV in. then switch the tv on, flip ova to AV then tune the VCR/DVD and volla, sound :) good luck. P.S. this is a blown or damaged transistor(FET)(MOSFET) but is easy to fix if you want to, however it will not undermine the rest of the TV as fas as performance or life expectancy goes.
