Question about Symphonic SC313D 13 in. TV/VCR Combo
Hi, a common problem with those combinations is the VCR section, if you are handy with some basic tools you can try a couple of quick procedures, first always make sure you remove the power to the TV, then take the cover off, then look for the carriage belt its usually located to the left of the VCR mechanism looking at it from the back of the TV. With your fingers rotate the cassette mechanism pulley to one side usually counter clockwise untill the tape ejects, this may take awhile because you are doing this manually, but if after a reasonable time the cassette does not eject, try clockwise, once the tape is ejected and out of the cavity, try turning the TV on.
It might be that the belt needs replacing(most of the time this will correct the problem).

This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an Akai, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. In any event, this is most likely, a fairly inexpensive repair, but as related ask for a "Quote" before proceeding with any repair.
