    I tried inserting a tape by hand, but the TV still powers off.

Your problem can either be broken belt(that helps eject/load the tray or some kind of mechanical obstruction. Did you try pushing it in with your hand and see if it loads?

    There is a mechanical obstruction inside the VCR and the self-check is failing. That is why the tv is powering off to prevent damaging the VCR. You will have to disassemble the tv and look for the onstruction and remove it provided you have prior experience in electronics. If not then it may not be a good idea to mess with it as the tv holds potentially lethal voltages that last for several days after its turned off and unplugged.

Given the size and brand of this tv, your best option is to replace it. It isn't worth the time or money to look into getting it repaired. your only economically viable option is to replace it. If you need any help locating a replacement please let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which


The problem is with the vcr section, it is stuck in eject mode thinking there is a tape. This a mechanical problem that might be repairable. The tv and vcr share some of the same circuits, you can try resetting the tray in the out position as if it fully ejected the tape. Now if this does not work it means you have a gear timing problem or bad sensor.

Tv vcr combo


The best way I can think of is to REMOVE the rubber band that loads the tape into the transport unit.Be KILLFULL (careful) the band is right next to the B+ (power supply) or the A\C 120volt
( and if u can find the replacement rubber bands, buy 2 kits)

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem


Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.
