Question about Emerson EWC27T3 27 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Vcr trouble We've had problems with the vcr ejecting the tape and recently it stuck fast. I was able to finangle the tape out, but now everytime I turn on the tv it keeps trying to eject the tape (that's no longer there) and then automatically shuts off the tv. Is there a way to disconnect the vcr wires so I can still use the tv and hopefully the dvd player. I don't think there's anything wrong with the tv but it still thinks there's a tape in there so I can't switch the input from vcr to cable. Does anyone know what I can do or is this a job for the pros?

    nfandres is incorrect, the power supply for this tv is NOT in the vcr. Its directly behind the dvd player unit on the DVD/Power supply board . THE issue w/ this tv is the vcr is the heart of the 3 features (DVDVCRTV) if its not functioning properly, then neither of the other 2 will, its a safety feature to prevent tapes from getting eatin. Timing is everything for the ol soon-2-b extinct analog video tape player, there are cassette tape sensors, end of tape sensors, mech position sensors and ALL of them must be in sync, or system will shut down to prevent further tape damage.

    Now w/ that being said, I need a REAL tech to explain to this tv tech how one can disable the vcr part entirely?...I got one of these in for repair, the mountain ppl who owned it, tried to remove a cassette w/ a butter knife. They did a precise job of totally destroying the transport mech, and the t/u and supply reels were missing entirely when i examined it.....After a while, of course they're not returning to pik up the now attached 20$ service bill piece of junk......So i have it sitting around for awhile and now would like to use it for an xbox gaming sys. After all. it is a 30" screen w/ a great looking pic while its on for 15 secs..lol. Was wondering if there are any real repair people out there that would know how/where to set main timing pot (which is mounted on main board under vcr chassis) to allow full sys check and keep the tv on. The VCR part will not be missed.
    Thanx for your time...

This combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.

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.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty


the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

Tape stuck and tv turns off


With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful... Good Luck! Bill
