Question about Symphonic SC319C 19 in. TV/VCR Combo

Open Question

VCR keeps trying to eject a tape...even when there is no tape inside the VCR.

I currently have a Symphonic TV/VCR combo. I've had it for a few years and love it. However, ever since i've moved it constantly attempts to eject or rewind or play a VCR tape, when there is no tape in the player. I've looked inside and notice that there is nothing inside (like a sticker off a tape) that should not be there. I was wondering if there was a way of simply turning off the VCR aspect of the set and keeping the TV working just as it is (without the VCR and without the constant attempts at ejecting). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

SOURCE: tv vcr combo

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)

I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which

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.

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects

My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?

I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

My Tv is turning off by itself

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
