    I have a 1990 Emerson TV/VCR model # 0950, that powers down (turns it
    self off) when a tape is inserted. The tape must be ejected before yo
    can watch TV. Whats the problem? Can it be repaired? Thanks

    How the **** should I know if it can be repaired? Why not take it to a
    repair shop and ask them, asshole?

    BTW: Who the **** uses VHS anymore? They have these things called Tivos and
    DVD's out now, maybe you should check them out.

    There are numerous protection circuits in a vcr, some are mechanical
    switches and some are optic switches. Any good repair shop (are there any
    left) should be able to fix it. I would suggest that its most likely a belt
    or a dirty optic switch...But who knows!!!!!!!!
