My daughter shoved a toothpick, a plastic pingles lid and potato chips into the vcr causing the vcr to eat a tape. We got the tape out but the tv will turn back on but shuts back off after about 15 secs. We used the condensed air in a can to clean it but it still won't stay on. What should we do?

The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.
CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs.

There are different reasons that a VCR could start eating
tapes. It could that it just needs a good cleaning or it could have a mechanical
problem you will really need to have it checked out by a service center to determine
why. If you have small children I would check it for signs of “peanut butter sandwiches. J
