Problem with TV/VCR combo

Hi there,
I have a Zenith TV that is a TV and VCR combined into one unit. I never use the VCR part of the unit. The other day my brother put a tape into the VCR. I don't think he was able to get it to play. He ejected the tape and now everytime I turn on the TV, I hear the VCR churning and then the TV turns off. I don't really care about the VCR part of the unit, so if it means that I have to disable the VCR to get the TV to work that is fine with me! Any suggestions??

some simple things 2 try

one unplug unit from wall outlet for 5 minutes, if its a software glitch sometimes it will reset it.

have you tried to put another vcr tape in ? what does it do ?

there could be a lever or something sticking.

However combo units are known for being a pain,
