I just had this same problem. I thought that the timer was stuck and was the reason why the VCR wouldn't play. I just moved and thought the unit got broken in the move. However, I think it was just not hooked up properly to the TV. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and got it hooked up properly and it started working again (I tested the connection with a DVD player first). The flashing timer light went off as soon as I reset the clock. It seems odd that having it not hooked up properly should stop the VCR from playing, but that is what seemed to happen in my case. Hope this helps.

RCA VCR stops playing after a few seconds

It could be due to wornout or broken belts,the VCR uses belts to operate various the mechanical components.If the belts are damaged the machine may stop playing tapes.

It can also be an electrical problem,if there is an issue with the the electrical components of the machine such as power supply or circuit board.it may cause the machine to stop playing tapes

Can't get the timer light to go off on my RCA VCR

Other RCA VCRs have had problems with flashing timer lights. Those could be fixed with service from an electronics repair person if it doesn't stop even after being unplugged for a while. But, try leaving it unplugged for a few hours. If that doesn't work, the electronics repair might be the way to go, or get a different VCR on eBay or from the local thrift store for pretty cheap.

MY RCA VCR - TIMER LIGHT ALWAYS FLASHES. WHEN i TRY TO RECORD OR TURN OFF VCR IT EJECTS TAPE.

If it plays a tape OK, then it could be that you have a timer set. In which case clear it! Or that you are using a blank tape where the slot at the back is open. If you are using a blank tape which is good and it still ejects the tape after setting the recording. Then it's likely the recording tab sensor - that detects the slot at the back of the tape - is either bent or broken.

I lost the remote control, how can rewind the hsv tape. Thanks.

There should be a rewind button on the front of the main unit (usually indicated by either REW or 2 arrows pointing to the left), this should be next to the fast forward (again indicated by either F-FWD or 2 arrows pointing to the right) as well as PLAY and STOP - for the VCR. The only thing you would need the remote for is to set the clock and/or perform setup for the DVD player as well as timer recording. Try a universal remote which will make fast forward, play, stop, record (to VHS) and rewind easier.

VHS tape is stuck in the VCR. Tape will not eject, will not play or foward/rewind. The unit has been working just fine with no problems. The VHS tape has been inserted into the machine to record daily...

assuming you have power to the machine , i would suggest the ejection drive belt has stretched , 2 choices here , take it somewhere and get it fixed or unplug it from power supply and remove the top casing yourself and have a look.

Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO

Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
