Your unit will not work as you have it connected. There are guard bands built into the DVD that will prevent passage through a VCR from working. The DVD needs to be connected directly to the TV. If you do not have an AV input on your TV, then you will need to purchase an RF converter. For best picture connect the AV output from the DVD (Red/White/Yellow) to a corresponding input on the TV (Red/White/Yellow). This may be marked Video 1 or AV input.

Feel free to update this if you need additional info.

Hi,

Initially, a couple of ideas:

  • check the cables from the DVD to the VHS to the TV (I am assuming that the sound is likewise connected to the TV and not to a home receiver system or an amplifier);
  • I am assuming again that you are using RCA and not RF, if yes pls pay special attention to the yellow RCA on both the DVD to VHS and VHS to TV;
  • diagonal roll often indicates a loose ground or a defective cable/RCA connector;
  • verify settings/configurations in all three; DVD, VHS, TV. TV should be set to AV or Video, VHS likewise to A/V INput;
  • try playing a known good VHS tape, if normal playback, problem is between DVD and VHS, if likewise no video, problem is between VHS and TV.
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.

Green tint on TV screen when playing DVD's or Videos 2nd problem and can't record anything


1: Hi i would recommend trying the recorder on a different tv to check if the problem continues. If the green tint is gone then its the tvs inputs. If it is still green then its the player or the cord. Try a different cord if the green tint is still there then the player has a problem.

2: Now for the VHS to DVD. There are general a lock out encoded on the VHS if it is a store bought movie. This is to protect the content on the VHS from piracy and that would case the DVD to be blank. The VHS to DVD are made for converting your home videos like family vacations and stuff you record your self and not for commercial movies like the ones you bye at the store. If you want to convert old VHS movies to DVD you would have to get another VHS player and another device in between the VHS player and the VHS to DVD recorder.

My py90vg dvd vhs player does not play vhs. The sound is on but there is no picture


If you have the DVD/VCR connected using the component outputs, then you'll need to also connect a composite video wire to your TV from the DVD/VCR. VHS will not play through the component outputs, only the DVD will and they probably both share the same audio output connection so this would explain the DVD being seen and heard while only hearing the VHS.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.


Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

VHS side doesn't have pictures


the connection from your player to TV is only single output not separated DVD and VHS. If there is picture when used on DVD then you should be having problem with your VHS player. Question.... is your unit new? Is this the first time you encounter this problem? what is the brand of your player?

Cannot play VHS


Combo DVD/VCR players don't output the VHS with Component Video. Most of the time, it won't output over the S-Video either. The high end outputs are ONLY for DVD output. You must run a yellow wire, or use coax cable to get the video. Same goes for the optical digital sound out. It's only for DVD use.

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck
