HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The other Experts and I are working on your answer. By the way, it would help us to know:

This is happening with a video tape and not a dvd. Is this correct?

Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.

just the video not the dvd
Expert:  Pmiller replied 5 years ago.
Ok, that's what I thought.
This is a very common problem with vcr's. What is happening is your vcr is trying to load the tape and detecting a load malfunction and shutting the power to the whole unit down. Usually its just a bad belt, or, a lock up in the plastic gear assembly that loads the appropriate mode for the unit to engage the drive system. The majority of the time though its just the belt. A repair of this nature should run about $45-$75 depending on your location. Due to the fact that you must remove the vcr unit from inside the tv for repair, I recommend getting it repaired or warranty service if you still have time left on your warranty as it is very dangerous in the back of these set.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further information...Good luck.
