In your experience, does this fix that problem for good, or will it continue to go out. Is this a costly fix? The TV was only $200 something, do these TV have a lot of problems? Thanks!

There is a infra red emmiting diode inside that has failed. this is the diode just under the prism inside the unit. replace that and re-time the mode switch. the unit is not made by philips but by funai so no support can be given to you from philips. I've repaired close to 60 of these with the same problem you have.

My daughter just had a problem with her Philips tv. It has a built-in vhs player on it, and when she put in a tape, the tv started turning off. I turned it on and got a blue screen that says 't-eject'. I...


It is possible that the Tape mechanism is struck and so is shutting off the power to the unit. Since the power is shared it is possible that the cut off to the set is due to the error in the VHS player.
So in this case you will need to remove the VCR and get the entangled or the stuck up cassette from the player so as to reset the error. Also if there is a mechanical issue to the player must be checked.

Tape would not come out.


Not sure on the removal, but if you replace the mode switch the machine might come back to life.

VHS got jammed, clicks, turns self off


Open it up and next to the right spindal where the tape goes there should be a small, black B-S button, press it in with a pencil or pin, and it should reset the VCR's computer.

VCR tape won't eject


you should take the bottom off and you will see a gear with a belt around it try to turn it the same direction as when it is turned off, do not force it but it may need a little force to move the wheel.

My Tv is turning off by itself


if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
