Question about Zenith ALG4010 VHS VCR

2 Answers

Channels only up to 20

I have a basic cable connection, routed through the vcr to the tv, but I can only get channels 2-20. I have lost the remote. I have 2 "all-in-one" remotes, but neither have a 'menu' button. Is there a way to manually 'scan' in the rest of the channels? Thanks for any help.

Have the tunner scan for new channels. When you first get the unit it does not know if you are using cable or an antenna. If your using an antenna there is no need to go all the way to 500 channels so it searches for available channels then locks out what is not available. Then when you go back to cable you only have the channels it found using the antenna. It needs to "auto locate" the channels that are available now. Reprogram the tunner or find a menu and let it auto search or what ever its called now.

How do i manually program my channels on older tv without a remote


Nothing you can do without the original remote. One cannot get into the setup pages. Replacement remotes usually don't work on this point either. They are missing this special setup button. In order to watch DVD, VCR, connect them with a SCART cable. When you switch on the player, the TV will detect this and go automaticaly to this input. If connected with RCA plugs, you can choose the input with the program Up/Dwn buttons on the TV set itself, going "lower" than channel 1.

HELP ME TUNE CABLE THRU VCR TO TV...PLEASE


If you can get a picture on your TV when you watch a video tape you are half way there. On the back of the VCR there are two coax connections, you may need a flashlight but one will be labeled IN and the other OUT. The one that is labeled Out will be connected to the TV. The other one (IN) is where the Cable from the wall connects into. After you have the connections made turn your TV to either Channel 3 or 4. You will now use your VCR remote to change channels.

These are the basic instructions without knowing what model VCR you have. If the TV will not stay on channel 3 or 4 then you will either need to get it repaired or get a new TV.

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

JVC television-lost old remote-have universal /can't add channels


I don't have an answer for your question.

However, I do have a suggestion. You can hook up a vcr to your tv, then put the tv on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the vcr is set for) and change the channels through your vcr. You have to have the cable go first to your vcr and then out to the tv.

Connecting my tv and vcr so i can use the vcr remote control


You can always push "03" on a universal remote programmed to work your TV. A better solution is to connect the devices properly. You shouldn't use the tuner inputs for a VCR/DVD player, or you will get a poorer picture and no stereo sound. See the instruction manual for your player and TV. Use a stereo audio/video cable to connect them and select the proper input. The instructions will hopefully clarify this.
