It seem the problem of you vcr is in the tape head ,its accumulated dirt already when playing its for how many seconds and then shut off, it need to clean the head, it is easy to clean. you can do this, . Take a bond paper and alcohol. fold and cut the bond until to 1/8 size .open the unit , when open try to look a round thick discs metal this metal is shiney and very smooth like chrome stainless metal , that is the tape head... pour a little amount of alcohol to 1/8 piece of bond paper .bring in the side of the tape head and lean it to the side on / off the player so it will turn the head on / off five times..im sure it is clean already.i think you need a software to unlock themulti region.or try to reset ,by going to menu ,set to the factory default setting...

Magnavox vcr/dvd combo the vcr part only plays for 8 seconds


What you have is called a transport problem in the VCR unit--the mechanism is either jammed or something in it that loads the tape is bad.

Every time it is used it cycles to self check the mechanism--if it fails it is usually a belt bad or a gear assembly not working.

Someone would have to open unit to see what is happening.
