    I inserted a VHS cassette into my television, and it ran for a while and then it turned itself off. It will turn on again, but only for a few seconds, then it turns off again. The tape will not eject. It is a Zenith model # TVSC2040F Manufactured September 2000 V

    Thanks for info,
    It seems there are few cold/ dry solder connections/ joints in deflection circuit on main board.
    Please check main board for cold soldering joints and re-solder them to fix the issue.

Possibly the main Power Regulator is damaged!!!

Open the case, then look for anything that burned out, replace it!!!

If still won't start, you need a multimeter, soldering iron, try locate output diode on power regulator board, then measure the voltages, it has 3-4 type of voltages;
first diode it should around 115V-130 V DC.
Second diode it should around 24 V DC.
Third diode it should around 11-16 V DC.
Fourth ( if exist), check diode and should around 5 V DC.

The problems usually start on second diode, if persist, follow the circuit board.

The TV turns on and off after a few seconds and repeats itself.


There could be quite a few things that would cause the set not to power up. I dont have the service manual, however you can get a copy of the service manual at the following link for your model. As thats the only proper way to be able to check for the proper voltages to determine whats wrong with the set.
Heres the link.

Red CRT is doing short circuit in the neck. You can try to open the front panel and to hit easy the neck with wood or something and to decrease the red screen a bit. If doesn't work then replace the CRT.
