Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

That's not uncommon. One side fails, the other side can't play. You need to get the tape out and make sure that if you break the tape that there are no pieces stuck int he mechanism. You may need to crack it open to get to the inside to remove any broken tape. Be VERY careful around the heads. Blow it out and use a good head cleaner to clean the heads. Then see if there's a reset procedure or simply unplug it for awhile.

Put a tape in and eject it. It will then work. Just had this problem. CST IN means the VCR thinks it has a tape in. Trust me... Very fixable.

SOURCE: I put a vhs tape in an the vcr turns off by it

Unplug the power supply for thirty seconds and plug back in, this will reset the processor and might eject the tape. If this fails the next step is remove the top of the combo unit this will give access to the vcr tape, if the tape is spewed in the machine and wrapped around the video head and other mechanical parts use scissors to cut the tape and carefully removing the particles, press power to eject the tape for normal operation. However! if the vcr tape is okay, there may be a loading problem, broken drive belt, bad idler assembly to name a few, this is where a technician will be needed but may not justify cost.

My combo will shut off a few seconds after you turn it on


Get a very small hemostat, or heat sink clamp and clip it onto the wires coming out of the diode, batween the diode and the board. Use a small soldering pencil so you don't generate too much heat and use solder remover braid or a ****** to remove the solder. When you replace it, use the clamp again to protect the new one and make sure the polarity is the same or it won't work at all.

Sylvania SRD4900 DVD/VCR combo problem


There's a problem with the tape drive, so it's shutting down to prevent damage to the tape. Someone familiar with VCR mechanisms would probably have to see it in action to identify what's wrong. Most of them act in a similar fashion, so if you have a working VCR, you can take the cover off and watch it load a tape, run it, rewind and eject, then compare with the non-working unit. The parts won't be interchangeable, but the tape loading will look much the same. You can comment on what happens and I can try to explain what I think is going on. Better yet, if you could post a video of the internal mechanism while it tries to load a tape, that would be very helpful.
