Once the VCR is turned on, it turns itself off.


If there is a mechanism fault on the VCR then the VCR will shut itself down. It sounds like the mechanism might be jammed, it's trying to move to the right position, when power is applied but can't so it stops. One thing that might be wrong is the mode switch might be faulty. This will cause all sorts of thing to happen, including putting on the timer record light even when none has been set.

Most likely you will need a scan converter to change your signal from a Video to a VGA. The signals are mismatched.

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.

What you can do is, take the top off and maybe the bottom. See if the tape is still wraped around the head (chrome cylinder that spins) If it is then.Try to figure out what gearing you can turn to back everything out. Sometimes you can turn the gearing on the bottom to back the capscan (the fingers that hold the tape against the head) out. Once you have done that you can find the carriage motor, usually has a worm gear on it . Turn it to back out the cartridge(sometimes this gear will also back out the capscan it all depends on your model) The tape will not go back in the cartridge. Fish the tape out, and back the cartridge all the way out. The VCR heads (chrome cylinder) is probably dirty and grab the tape or the VCR has gone out of sync or (timing). when that happens there is a gear has slipped a tooth somewhere. Thats another story. Hope this is helpful.

Hold down the power button (or the vcr button if on a combination remote) for six seconds. This will unlock the child lock feature of the vcr.
