The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.
Even if the TV is connected to the VCR, chances are that it would only be the signal (RF or Audio/Video) cables and not the power cords. Both not powering on would indicate an electrical problem such as: 1. defective power strip as wall outlet; 2. blown fuse or popped open circuit breaker; 3. a near lightning strike or power outage that has affected the AC section of the 2 devices.
One that you can try is to remove the VCR from its current location and try plugging it elsewhere. If it powers up (and hopefully you can eject the tape that needs to be returned), then you likewise have confirmed the electrical problem,
Alternately, you can manually removed the tape (with the possibility of wrinkling a few areas) by opening the top cover, determining the motor/gear drive that ejects the tape and just basically winging it. Of course your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Your most likely having a problem with your power supply. I would say check the capacitors for obvious signs of swelling and all fuses first. Next I would check your low voltage regulators.Have you tried pushing the menu and imput buttons together and holding them for 5 seconds to access the self diagnosis feature? If you cant initiate the self diagnosis feature its probaly the capacitors or Regulators.
Whenever you suspect you may have a solder bridge where you did not intend one, use a digital meter set on connectivity to check out whether you are getting a short. If so, most likely you need to redo it.
Doublecheck by using the same meter set on ohms reading. If it is super low, like 1-2 ohms, it's shorted. Your conductivity beeper may still sound off if it's less than 100 ohms, which may be a valid reading between 2 points on any cb.
