Question about Panasonic PV-C2540 25 in. Combo
You have a common problem with the center infared LED or one of the photo transistors on either side... My guess is that when the tape got previously stuck you may have inadvertently broken the prisim in the center of the tape housing assembly trying to get the tape out. If that's the case you'll need to repair or replace it or the LED itself.. Presently the VCR is booting and finds the infared signal missing and goes into shutdown. No amount or resetting will prevent that.. If you take it to a shop it's less than a one hour job. But if you're any good with taking these apart and VERY observant you could do this yourself. Hope this helps. Bill PS: If you have to replace the LED remember they are polarized ( positive and a negative) just make sure you put the new one in the same way.
