Hello,

I would suggest that you install some type of video capture device in your pc. I would suggest something like this. This is just one example of a usable device.

Here is a link to the service manual and user guide for your assistance installing the card if you decide to choose an internal capture card. Here are examples of internal cards.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

You must have a video capture device connected to your computer. You can get a card that connects on the motherboard or you can get a USB type. Some video cards also have a video input, but most are aftermarket add-ons. Once you get a video capture device, you would then be able to connect the VCR to the computer, and it would come with full instructions on how to connect it.

    Until you have the video capture device, there is no way to tell you how to connect it. There are several different types. Some have audio inputs on them and some do not, in that case you would need to connect your audio thru the audio card. Here is a link to a great place to buy a video capture device:

    http://www.tigerdirect.com

    They have some of the best prices on them. Search for "video capture" in the search box on the site.

    I hope this helps, and if so, please rate it.

    Do you want to record video tapes on your computer? If so, the only way is with a video capture devise.



    If all you want to do is record what you see on your computer onto a video tape, then you must have a video card with a S-video or composite video output on it. There is no other way. You would need no other driver to recognize your VCR. If your video card has the TV video output you only need to activate that video output with the software for your video card which is already on your computer. You can find that software by right clicking any open area on the desktop and select "properties" from the menu that comes up and you then get a window with the display properties and you can select ouput to 2 devices, the monitor and the TV output.



    I have a VCR connected to my computer that I use to transfer video tape to DVD. This is the most common reason for connecting a VCR to the computer. I assure you, there is no other way to put a video tape on your computer. See my previous post, it has a link to a place that has great prices on video capture devices. I doubt you will find anyplace that sells them cheaper. The USB video capture is the easiest way to do this. It has the video and audio inputs right on it and labeled for easy hook up.

You have to have an s-video cable,however you also have to have a driver so your vcr will be recognized by the computer. I'm sure you need to download the driver program from the web. i would try the vcr manufacturers web site for this. To be quite honest I never have heard a vcr being used in this particular way. the odds of you finding a driver install program is pretty slim.

I HAVE A MAGNAVOX TV MODEL 255102-OODD, A MOTOROLLA (VERIZON) SET TOP BOX MODEL QIP2400/1006 AND A JVC DVD MODEL DR-MV150BJ. I HAVE TRIED ALL THE HOOK-UPS SUGGESTED BY JVC AND STILL CONNOT GET A PICTURE. ...


ok, The issue will be in the sequence you have things connected. The connections sequence is going to be controlled by what connections are available. I assume the Set Top controller is connection to your Antennea connection on the TV. Your TV should be on channel 3 or 4. The next step depends on what type of connectors you are using for the JVC DVD. I have an Antennea output on mine so I connected them in series. If you don't have an Antennea output from teh DVD player you will need to connect the DVD using Audio/Video cables which means you will need to connect to the TV alternate Source connector and to watch DVD's you will need to change to that source. Much like you would switch between regular TV and VCR tape on a VCR player connected to the Antennea connector.

Turn on goes blue then turns off


The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.

If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If you have are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If the blue screen is not because of a connected VCR or set-top box, the TV may require service.

I cannot record a show onto a blank vhs tape in my vcr??


Hi,

Initially, pls verify that the coaxial cable is connected to the ANT/Cable/RF IN of the VCR. Thereafter the built-in tuner of the VCR would be used to select the desired channel to be recorded. The VCR in turn maybe connected two (2) ways to the TV:
  • Audio/Video using yellow, red & white RCA cables/connectors using AV1 or Video1;
  • RF patch cord from RF OUT of VCR to ANT/Cable/RF IN of TV using either Channels 3 or 4.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Cannot connect vcr to Lc-32AF3X aquos tv


Hi,

To my knowledge, most VCR units would have a yellow, red and white connectors commonly called RCA. What is required then is a triple RCA to RCA connector as shown below. The yellow is normally connected to the video, while the red & white are for the R & L of the audio. An identical set would be on the rear of the TV unit henceforth the connection would be OUT from the VCR to the IN of the LC-32AF3X. Thereafter, the TV must be set to A/V, V1, Video or Aux.

In some instances, a single cable is used to connect some models to the TV. This is called an RF patch cord and would look something like below. This would come form the RF OUT of the VCR to the RF/CABLE/ANT IN of the TV. Pls make sure that the style/form fits your units. Additionally, the TV must be set to either Ch 3 or 4 or whatever the VCR is using as its RF output channel.

Connecting a Wii Game System


yes and no - you can unhook one device but the connectors will soon go bad (connections on the board) - better idea is to hook the wii in the the vcr and put the vcr on input 1 61bd19f.jpg

I am trying to hook my 40 inch flat screen by samsung to my dell computer. i unplugged the cpu monitor and plugged it to my tv and the tv states that the mode is unsupported. What do i do?


Your computer is set to a resolution supported by your dell monitor but not the flat screen tv.

The easiest way to get it working is to turn the computer off, connect the flat panel to the computer and then turn the computer on.

To change the resolution of the flat-panel or monitor, right-click on the desktop, click on properties and then select the settings tab.

play with the screen resolution and find one that works best by trying each one and clicking apply. If you select a resolution not supported by your flat panel, computer will automatically revert to the previous resolution in 15 secs.

1. Check the TV's horizontal and vertical hold. 2. If there is a VCR connected: Shut off the VCR. If the problem clears up, the VCR is not properly ?fine-tuned.? Turn the VCR on and troubleshoot the VCR problems. 3. If a converter is connected to your TV and VCR: The VCR needs to be on channel 4. VCR may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel 4. Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. The <3/4> switch may be in the wrong position. Locate the switch on the back of the VCR and set it to <4>. 4. Check the fine-tuning of your TV. good luck :-)
