We have 3 VCRs in the house, and all of them refuse to power up now. We don't use them very often, so we don't know exactly when they died. But since all 3 are dead, I wonder if they all died at the same time, maybe from a power surge or something? All 3 VCRs were hooked up to surge protectors that had other devices plugged into them - TVs and DVD players. All of the TVs and DVD players are still working, only the VCRs died. Any idea why they aren't powering up? If it's not a simple fix, I'll take at least one of the VCRs to a repair shop.
