Toshiba DVD/VHS Combo - DVR 20 KB. After switching Combo on,

Customer Question

Toshiba DVD/VHS Combo - DVR 20 KB.
After switching Combo on, after about 5 mins the TV screen goes black. The combo unit on/standby light is still on, but none of the function buttons operate, apart from the on/off standby button, when switched off the screen flashes on for an instant then goes black. If switched on again the cycle just repeats itself.
I have set the screen saver time delay to off , but makes no difference. Also channel always goes back to the one last used bef ire the problem, even though I have changed the channel!!
