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.

I have a Panasonic TV with inbuilt Freeview TH-42PX70BA. I also have a Hitachi VCR VT-FX980E which I use to record analogue channels. Now that the analogue signal is disappearing I would like to record...


The simple solution is to connect your VCR to a Freeview set top box, which you can pick up for around £10. Simply connect the box via a scart lead. If the Video has two scrat sockets use the other for the box. For recording set the VCR up the same way but instead of selecting channel one or two etc set it as AV2 if that is the place the box is connected. When recording leave the box on the station you want to record and the VCR will record it. Don't forget to allow a few minutes either way for the start and stop times. Also if the VCR has PDC switch it to off.
You should be able to record this way whilst watching another channel on the TV. Some Freeview set top box's have timers on them so if you are out and want to record two shows on different channels you can.
If you have only one scart then a scart switching unit such as this below will solve that problem. Found on Amazon.

I have Time Warner cable. I have a Symphonic SR90VE vcr/dvd that I have hooked up to the main TV. The cable box services a second tv in another room. I can't seem to get the main tv and the vcr/dvd player...


Cable goes to vcr cable INPUT, then run cables from vcr OUPUT to tv INPUT or AV.

Then put tv on input or av channel or channel 4 and use put the vcr on the channel you want to record.

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...

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

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

TV image goes off when VCR power turned on


The vcr is connected in between the antenna (or cable) and the tv, and when it turns on its tuner takes control of the signal. Either:
1) press the VCR/TV button on the VCR to let the signal go stright thru
2) Tune the VCR to the channel you want to watch and set the TV to the VCR's input.
3) If you use a coax cable connection to the TV, try switching the VCR to the other channel (3 or 4, switch in the back)
4) Change the TV connection to RCA cables on the A/V inputs.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Installation


Yes.On the back of the vcr you want your cable thats coming from the wall or digital box to go to the input of the vcr and the output on the vcr to go to the input of the tv.Once you have it plugged in and turned on (VCR).then put the TV on channel three and you should see a blue screen .Once you have all that hooked up go to the VCR and press the menu button ,what your looking for is the settings or setup button in the menu,it should say something like Autoprogram, channel search channel setup.once you find that allow it to search for new channels,youll know when you get it right because the vcr will start running through the channels and finding all of them.GOOD LUCK rate me FIXYA! if this works.

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.

Settings Not Sticking - Always Downloading


This may indicate a problem with the persistant memory of the chip that holds the settings information. This might be caused by a capacitor that is not holding proper voltage during the setup phase or some defect in the memory itself. I would suggest getting a schematic of the device and using a multimeter check the pinout voltage levels of the section that sets and stores the settings, and the associated memory. If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest that you take the unit to a qualified TV repair shop in your area. Thank you, Shuttle83
