Question about Televison & Video
Older model but, used once before breakdown. TV comes on to insert VCR tape, then shuts off after 15 seconds. Same without tape inserted.
For 15 seconds tape works fine.
Sounds like a typical Switched Mode Power Supply fault, or an internal thermal fault that is shutting down the power supply, over & over. Really you need to get it serviced. You need to get a firm "Quote" for repair, remember these days repair can often exceed replacement cost.
