EWC1304 VHS tape shuts off entire system

I am having a problem with the above mentioned TV/VCR combo shutting off when I insert a tape. There isn't anything obviously damaged in the cassette carriage. The tape loads a little unleveled. The TV works fine for days on end with out any problems, so I don?t think it is a power supply problem. I do however think it may be a jam in the tape playing mechanism. I hear the tape try and feed to the heads then the power goes off. I have to push the power button and the system comes right back on, lending to the thought that the power supply isn?t the problem. Any ideas?

You probably have a bad or dirty mode select switch. Another possibility would be a gear out of time if a tape was forced in too quickly.

Magnavox tv/dvd/vcr combo model mwc24t5b i put a tape in the vcr hit play and the tv shuts off. everything else work fine on the tv.

Usually when that happened for me, it meant that one of my small children had also put a foreign object in the slot where the VHS tape goes. Any type of obstruction will cause the VCR to jam and force the television to shut off.

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
