I picked one up in the trash 2004 model 27MDTR20/17. I turn it on and it shuts off. I opened the back and pulled the DVD/VHS board out. I removed a metal cover on the VHS housing (three screws). There was a broken clear plastic rod and one of the gear stop plastic cords (on the left side) was ripped where it attached to the front metal bracket through a hole in the plastic tab. The plastic chord has a piece of white felt like material attached to it. I epoxied the plastic rod back and put a piece of tape over the broken plastic end of the cord. The tape was folded over the edge of the plastic and then wrapped back on itself. I trimmed the outline with a scissor and poked a new hole in the end where the original hole was under the tape. I attached the chord back to the metal bracket. The problem was still there, the power would go off after a few seconds and the VHS gear train would make a slight motion like it was getting stuck. I then removed the mounting screws on the VHS housing and lifted it off the board slightly (ther are 2 screws that need to be removed from the far side also). There is a small gear under the right side of the board that was not aligned with another gear. The alignment is between a pin on one gear and a hole on the other. After I aligned them I reassembled the unit. The power stays on now only if I leave a tape in it but the DVD and VHS seem to work. My problem now is that I can only select AUX and channel 2! On well thats my next battle. Good luck.

The problem I am having is that when I turn on our tv vcr/dvd combo unit, it only wants to stay on for a few seconds and then it shuts off.


I have fixed one of these combos before. The problem seem to always been the zener diode to regulate power. It developes a leak which would cause increased voltage, and goes into shutdown mode.

T.V. shuts off when I try to play a DVD in the built-in player


Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.


You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.

Connecting VCR/DVD combo to TV


If that is the only input that the tv has it's still usable. Just plug the Cable TV or antenna cable into the DVD/VCR coaxial input labeled "in" (instead of the TV's) and hook one from the DVD/VCR's "out" to the "in" on the tv. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (depends on DVD/VCR settings) and use the built in TV tuner on the DVD/VCR to change channels.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
