I have the Philips DVP3150V/37 DVD Player / VCR Combo. The DVD player works fine, but when putting in a VCR tape, it plays for a few seconds then shuts itself off. Any suggestions on what to to?

The 3150 has two belts or bands that can slip when old, just like the old days. One is for loading the cassette and the other is for providing take-up torque for the tape. Have also seen the tape loading arms get out of sync and don't put the tape around the heads..... working on one now but dont have a fix yet..it has the loading problem.

VCR not working--initially accepts a tape--can hear it set up to head but releases after a few seconds. No fast fwd, no rewind.

This canbe due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. if the cassette loads and the take up spool does not turn then the machine will shut and rewind.
2. If the take up spool rotates but then it shuts down then the reel sensor at the bottom of the forward wheel can be faulty- there are opto devices or proximity sensors/magnetic type.
3. If the drum does not rotate it will shut down as well a fault in the SERVO section.
4. Defective HALL IC can shut the switching and so the servo will shut down the processor.
5. fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
6. Finally if the loading is not to the MODE swittch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip back to rest.
Hope you are able to check these tips.
