Problems tuning TV and SLV-900

This sounds like something really simple but I am going wrong somewhere! It is driving me mad. I wish to record from the TV using the video facility and have not got the manual to tune the video to the TV. I have tried following 'setup' and choosing the correct options etc but the TV shows the tuning symbols and searches for about 5 mins and comes up with nothing. Can anyone out there suggest some simple steps so I can tune the video and tv and record programs? Many, many thanks.

The video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

Sony slv-d370p displays dvd_errlog5 message


You`ll find the error codes in the service manual, But I don`t think this will help you, it sounds like you have a compatability problem. Are you not better connecting your turntable up to your PC?? You can purchase these really cheaply out of ASDA and other good retailers now which will plug directly into the USB port. You`ll have no problems then, I promise, I`ve done it. Ian
Has it actually wrote to the disc and have you finalized the disc?? Does the disc look like it`s been wrote to, you can usually see the recorded section of the disc but if it`s not been finalized, It`ll never play on a normal CD player. A CD player requires the TOC (Table Of Contents) in the centre of the disc, if this is missing, the CD will just give up and say disc error or something similar. Ian

hope this helps,thank you

My sony dvd vhs player is displaying only black and white split screen how do I fix this? nothing is wrong with the vhs


You have the Chanel Finder activated, usually a small switch on back, or somewhere it is used to give a "Pilot Signal" so the TV set can be tuned.to that signal, after you find it, you turn it OFF on the VCR. Or maybe the remote, check in your manual.

The DVD player has problems midway thru a DVD


Hi I am Vortash there is nothing actually wrong with your machine ?.. the problem is rental dvds are not shall we say treated with reverence by many of the subscribers to video shops ?.. Disks get damaged and scratched and dvd players that are in need of cleaning on the lens of the laser especially tend to ripple at the slightest imperfection as do some with critical read settings .
I remember when the DVDs and cd first came out they where seen as indestructible RUBBISH they are as sensitive as the old vinyl record or rather the laser is .. if it has a damaged disc it has to work twice as hard trying to pick out the information when most of the time it is being deflected off the area that it is supposed to read . It is true 90% of the time they ignore some damage but 10% of the time they just can't cope .. Get a good dvd cd cleaner and while the disc is cleaning the machine you clean the Video DVD with the solution and cloth provided ... hope this helps Regards Vortash

Picture goes in and out


Yes it sounds very much like it is simply in need of a tuning. Also if you do not feel comfortable repairing yourself, this is a very simple fix that can be done at most any electrical repair shop and usually doesn't cost too much.

I have the manual. Are you trying to record something live? if so:

1) Turn on both the DVD/VCR and your TV.
2) Switch the input selector on your TV so that the signal from the player appears on the TV screen (this is usually something like 'input 1' or 'line 1' and so forth)
3) On your remote, set TV/DVD-VIDEO to DVD-Video, then press SELECT VIDEO to control the VCR. These buttons are at the upper left hand corner of the remote controller.
4) To record from a cable box, turn it on.
5) make sure the tape is longer than the total recording time.
6) insert a tape into the VCR.
7) press CH +/- on the remote to select the channel or line input video source to record.
8) select the tape speed SP/EP (SP provides better quality, EP provides three times the recording time as SP)
9) Press the record button to start recording. The VCR display will display the message REC.

Watching tv while recording onto vhs or dvd


This could be a couple of problems. I'm not trying to make you feel dumb or anything but sometimes people miss the obvious. Do you have an universal remote? How is your vct wired to your tv? Does your cable go to your vct or your tv first? These sound like silly questions but they are important.
