Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My daughter just had a problem with her Philips tv. It has a built-in vhs player on it, and when she put in a tape, the tv started turning off. I turned it on and got a blue screen that says 't-eject'. I try to eject, nothing happens and the tv keeps shutting itself off after about ten seconds. It's never done this before. I tried hitting the 'record' button and it said 'no tape' - like it wasn't registering. How do I get the tape out or the tv to work?

It is possible that the Tape mechanism is struck and so is shutting off the power to the unit. Since the power is shared it is possible that the cut off to the set is due to the error in the VHS player.
So in this case you will need to remove the VCR and get the entangled or the stuck up cassette from the player so as to reset the error. Also if there is a mechanical issue to the player must be checked.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

TV is on channel. VHS player has tape for playback loaded. Player is on but when PLAY is pressed 5 seconds later it turns off by itself. Model number is DVP3200V/37. Can anyone help, please.


Dirty magnetic head. Run a commercial tape head cleaner through it. You can get one at the box stores. Also, put your tape in a tape rewinder and rewind and fast forward the tape for about 30 seconds. Sometimes the tape ribbon gets wound too tight or is loose. If these fail, then you have to open the unit up and clean the magnetic head manually with some isopropyl alcohol and cotton q-tips. Also, look for capacitors on the power inboard chip that look burned and replace them.

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.

Backup my vhs tapes


First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"
