VCR cuts out after 5 mins

I have connected my freeview set top box to an old VCR which is then connected to my old TV [which has no scart connector] via its aerial. The setup works great. I get all the channels listed and the reception and picture quality is first rate.

HOWEVER after 5 minutes viewing the VCR automatically turns itself off, thereby breaking the connection. Once I turn it on again it works fine â€" for another 5 minutes, then off it goes again.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

The VCR has no name badge on it â€" I picked it up at a car boot sale â€" all it says is SB105 Videoplus Video Cassette Recorder. And it didn't come with a remote. When playing a video it works absolutely fine â€" no cut outs, no power failures, no problems at all. This problem only seems to relate to the setup with the STB and the old TV.

All help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
