OK...we broke the vcr in the tv/combo symphonic. the tape would NOT eject because something inside broke. so we had to go inside and naturally make it worse. from the time the tape stuck the tv combo would stay in the eject mode and then withing the seconds it would turn the tv off.
so we went inside and tore the mess up worst. NOW...my question is this...you can look inside and see the left facing reel still turning...is there anyway of making the tv to stop recognizing the broken vcr so that the tv will stay on. ...is there any wire we can disconnect inside...otherwise we have a perfectly good tv we will have to throw away ...because some sensor is telling it to eject a tape from a broken vcr.
I will probably never find this site again...can you email me direct?

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.
Left up the VCR tape gate,see,if the tape still in there?Yes,unplug,10 mins.replug the Tv and push the tape forward botton.Let the tape go forward about 5 sec. eject the tape take out.Grandson probally rewind the same seen to many times,causing power power shotdown mode.
Veri8fy that the belt on the side of the VCR mechanism is intact. If it is, then check that the motor works, by appying 12 volts to it,with the belt disconnected. If the motor works, it might be that your mode switch needs cleaning, and that takes some fancy unsoldering and soldering.
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)
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.
