Magnavox Model MWD2205 VCR/DVD combo player.
When installing VHS tape,blue screen comes on with "eject" showing. Only starts up,then,after a few seconds,shuts unit down.
Trying dvd disc,tries to start,then it shuts the unit down also.
No,I don`t have tape and dvd in at the same time,LOL.
Have unplugged for 1/2 hour,but doesn`t make any differance.
Any clues about whats` happening?

RE: vcr/dvd stuck on 'eject'

The closest thing I had to that happening was with my Panasonic VCR. We took it to the shop, and he said that the things that turn the tape were all gummed up......probably from using the same tape so many times. He cleaned it up as best he could and said it might not last much longer. It lasted about a year, and it's doing it again. Do you think this is what might be your problem? The main symptom I had back then was it would just shut down shortly after starting it.
