I suspect the internal backup battery is faulty inside the machine. Sometimes it can be an actual battery soldered to the circuit board otherwise look for a low voltage high capaticance capacitor - for example 3.5v 10F. If you dont know how to check for these things then find a competant technician. Good luck.

Have noise on left back speaker channel of onkyo 606 blocking sound from movies etc


Hi Brendan, have you swapped the speaker from the left channel to the right one so that we can be sure that it is not the speaker? You can also try a hard reset:

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings.

Problem recording of hd tv with cable box from


Here are a few items to check and how you need to set your recording.

1. Your HD box should have a coax out (or to TV) connection on the back of the box.
2. Connect a coax cable from the back of the HD box to the "RF IN (FROM ANT.)" in the back of the VCR.
3. When you set your VCR to record you need to set it to copy channel 3 and tune the HD box to the channel you want to record.
This should fix your problem...

Good Luck...

Unable to operate recorder at all.


When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.

My Zenith VCR is not working with the digital converter box


When the VCR is "off" the converter signal should go right through the box, which you say it does. Then, when you turn the VCR "on" the picture disappears. That, so far, how it should be. To get your picture back while the VCR is "on" you must set the VCR to "receive" channel 3, and use your new converter box to change channels...accordianman

Playing vcr causes new digital tv to lose saved channels


Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.

To many Channel not accsseble


Wow Hans, does that name look German?
Gruesse!

Go into your main menu and check to see if the 'source' is properly set for your situation.
The 'av' almost surely stands for 'audio-video' which implies it is set for an external device rather than a cable, satellite, or antenna input.
However, it is odd that if set to an external input that you are getting any channels at all.
You didn't mention it but it sounds like you have other devices connected such as VCR, DVD, a home theatre system, etc.
Some sets will switch to external signal inputs if it detects their presence; in other words, if a connected VCR is turned on, the set might be expecting an input from it.

I Am Having Trouble Tuning My Channels On My VCR.


Hey is the VCR set for cable? even if it's not a local channel
could try to come in. turn the blue screen off on the VCR that
might solve your problem. If the channel is weak the blue screen will come on and block it. you can turn it off by going into
your VCR settings. Also If the cable is weak a splitter will
cause this you might have to hook the cable up directly to the
VCR to record it and watch it through the VCR. that's was may
problem once.
also you can tune channel 12 to your VCR manually if it is too
weak because of a nearby local channel it won't tune in automatically.

No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner


It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps
