    I would like to permenantly remove the VCR portion of this unit. It is
    constantly jamming and causing the TV to power off automatically. Is
    there a way to remove the VCR portion and still have the TV work? The
    TV is great for playing video games on or just watching TV.

    A competent repair tech could probably fix the jamming problem,
    but most of these are not very robust mechanically, so that
    might be temporary.

    More to your question, most of these are built with tuner and
    video processing circuits on the "VCR" board, so you probably
    can't "remove" the VCR, but you may be able to disable it.
    Depending on the model, some combination of things like taping
    the door shut, removing the loading drive belt, and solder-
    blobbing the tape end sensors might do it.

    Given a specific model number, someone on this group might be
    able to give more detailed information.

    The model is Sylvania SRC2019AC. Even though I have gotten the last
    jammed tape out it still thinks the tape is in there. If someone know
    how to disable this sensor so that the TV will work please reply.
    Thank you
