Question about Philips CCB130AT 13 in. Combo

2 Answers

Philips CCB130AT02 Unit believes there is a tape in carrier and says eject on the screen and then turns tv off 10 seconds after you turn the unit on. I want to disable the tape part if possible and keep the tv function. I have removed the vcr mechanism and all associated wires running to the mechanism but unit does the same thing with no mechanism present. Is it possible to just have the tv function?

    I have the same issue. It usually resolves itself when you unplug the unit for 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Likely the tape sensor switch is faulty. Normally it is located on beneath the mechanism towards the front where the tape goes in. It is a micro-switch that is actually soldered to the main PCB. You have to remove the main board and desolder the switch. You might want to try replacing the switch since with over usage (tape in/out countless times) it may have worn out.

Note that VCR servos are such that if an event in the mechanism does not occur within a given frame of time the unit will shut down.

My daughter just had a problem with her Philips tv. It has a built-in vhs player on it, and when she put in a tape, the tv started turning off. I turned it on and got a blue screen that says 't-eject'. I...

It is possible that the Tape mechanism is struck and so is shutting off the power to the unit. Since the power is shared it is possible that the cut off to the set is due to the error in the VHS player.
So in this case you will need to remove the VCR and get the entangled or the stuck up cassette from the player so as to reset the error. Also if there is a mechanical issue to the player must be checked.

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape

The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand it would appear that the VCR section of the combo unit would require a bit of cleaning. Specifically, head cleaning. The easiest approach is to use a VHS tape head cleaner.

The other post of "tv turns on then 5 seconds later shuts off" would be the auto-protect kicking in. This indicates that a likely hardware fault exists. Try to initially reset the unit by unplugging from the mains for an extended period. Otherwise it would require opening the unit for voltage measurement/diagnosis.

Pls post back updates. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Will not turn on

It sounds like the VCR ate the tape. When this happened to me (with a different brand name) I took the top off of the unit and carefully removed the cassette and DVD.


You should unhook the unit from the tv connections and take it to the table or other flat surface. While it is unplugged!!! remove the screws and remove the top of the unit. BE CAREFUL not to remove anything else!
Simply remove the cassette and DVD. Then plug in the power and make sure it comes on properly. Open the DVD tray to make sure it works also.
Then reconnect the unit to your tv and ENJOY!!
Trust me, it works... I've done it several times. I cannot promise that your problem is an eaten tape... but it sounds like it and when this happens 90% of the time, it triggers the unit to "turn off" due to a problem. Therefore, you turn it on and the unit turns itsself right back off!
I believe this will work for you :)

Stays on for 5 seconds, thinks it has a DVD or VHS tape in

I am afraid the set has a bad or broken tape transport, or better known as a bad tape carriage.
