My tv is one of those 13 inch portable vcr/tv combos. Recently it started going off about 5 seconds after it was turned on.I've tried plugging it into a wall outlet versus an extension cord but it won't stay on. Could this have been caused by a power surge? Does it mean there is a short in the wiring?

There is likely an issue in either the primary or the secondary power supply that is causing the TV to shut down. Unless you or someone you know is good at repairing switching power supplies, there's not much you can do to save this unit.
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.
My guess is that the prisim broken or led (light emitting diode) below it has failed so the vcr is stuck in an endless load...
It will have to be taken apart and the tape in it manually unloaded by turning the load motor counter clockwise. Then visually inspect the prisim and test the diode.
If any of this sounds too foreign take it to a good shop and they'll have it back and running in no time..
Hope this helps!
Este problema es muy usual en los combos,necesitas sacar dicho casete y despues checar si la video esta a tiempo si no lo esta remplazale la banda.Esto se deriva de que el micro detecta un error en la casetera por eso se te apaga.
The safety circuit is sensing a problem and is why it will not let the tv stay on,the cause could be a problem on the mechanics of the vcr,you need to get an estimate to see if it is worth the repair and might be able to keep using just the tv.
