We have a Symphonic WF802 DVD/VCR combo. The DVD player works fine, but the VCR has quit working. When we put a tape in, it gets stuck midway, the VCR shuts off, and the tape gets stuck. It won't play at all. Occasionally the video will make it all the way in and then the tape will come out and get stuck when ejected. Any guidance on how to fix this so we can play a video again?

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.
