How do I move from A1 to picture?


Make sure you know which input you have used on the tv, play a video and use your tv remote to select the right socket.
Your tv remote should have a button called source or input or look in the main menu, it should all be easily read from the screen

The picture is outside the edges of the TV


It's probably an issue of the "Aspect" or the "Screen Mode" you're in. I'm no TV repair expert, but if you look in your Main Menu for "Screen Mode" or even your remote might have a button labeled "Asp" or "Aspect" or "Mode"....or even "Wide" (which when pressed repeatedly will cycle through the most common 4 screen modes = Wide, Screen Fit, Zoom, 4:3.) The last one refers to the ratio aspect, but depending on your TV, they could be named differently.
Given your description, it seems you're in "Zoom" mode, since it's cutting off the edges of the picture. Put it on a station like CNN, which has a streaming ticker at the bottom and cycle through the options you have until you find the one you prefer. (Note: you should also be able to set this in your Main Menu somewhere as your preferred view, but some shows and movies might come through as full screen or 'Letterbox' regardless of your preference.
One final observation I've found on several units is that the remote button that's in the bottom right-hand corner (which may not be labeled as such) is the default location for your aspect selections. Push it and see what happens.
Good luck!

Find channels


You say you`ve plugged the outside aerial lead directly into the DVD recorder aerial input socket, you connected an aerial link lead from the aerial output socket on the DVD recorder and you`ve got a Scart lead from the TV output socket on the rear of the DVD recorder into the AV1 socket on the TV. I`m saying all this because in the past, I`ve had customers say this to me only to find when I call round that they`ve plugged the aerial into phono sockets instead of the earial input socket. The aerial lead will fit physically but not electrically. Have you got a good picture on your TV with the DVD recorder switched to standby?? If yes, Does it play a DVD perfectly through the TV?? If yes, then everything is connected up correctly, When you press the virgin menu button to your DVD, it should show setup/install?? When you do get to the free-view or channel setup/install menu, and you tell it to search for new channels, does it scan?? Does a bar or do the numbers rise and the % number rise as it finds new channels?? If they do and everything is connected and working as I described earlier but still no channels are found, Try unplugging from the mains and reboot your DVD recorder, then repeat the whole menu install procedure sequence again. Other than that, there`s nothing else you can do, Basically, you`ve got a faulty machine where it requires an engineers eye I`m afraid. Ian

Setup Menu will not display on TV screen


Ok, on the back of the unit, there is a single yellow composite output. There may also be a Red, green,blue.Component. Take 1 RCA cable and plug it into that yellow output, and route it into your TV input, also a yellow composite. Make sure that whatever input you put that into on the tv, that you change the TV input to that to view your player. when and if you get a picture, you should be able to get to the menu through the GOVID remote.

Later once that Path is working, you can upgrade it to the Red,. green, blue, if your TV has the inputs. You did not give a model for the TV or I could tell you what it has.

If you need any more clarification, please reply.

Best Regards,

Charles

Flashing (ghosting) on screen when playing DVD's or VCR tapes


I've had a similar problem, It was not the TV or the DVD player but the SCART junction box (a separate unit that automatically sent the live input to the output SCART socket, to fix I just uses a spare empty input socket.

if you don't have one of these units try with a different SCART socket or AV input also try replacing the leads between the player and TV.

Vtech kidizoom camera


We had the same issue. After turning on, nothing on the view screen and the buttons didn't work. The camera could turn on, the turn on screen and sound happened and we cold turn off (show off screen and sound)...even after changing batteries. It was like that for a week.

I found it had to do with TV connector slot. Thinking back, my daughter had been playing with the TV connector right before it stopped working. I took a small hair pin and put it in the TV connector slot, lightly wiggled it and the camera sprung back to life. I'm guessing the camera hardware was acting like it was still plugged in...hence turning off the view screen.

Anyways, hope that helps someone.

DVD's will no longer play in color


We had the identical problem, which was solved by changing the input channel on our Panasonic plasma screen. This was not obvious and we needed help from the person who installed the system. The input channel had changed automatically!
