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

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.
