Hitachi 23" tv/ toshiba vcr

Not sure i'm in the right area, but can't find anything more relevant. i have a hitachi tv on which i run videos and dvd's from a toshiba unit. sometimes the tv screen go black, either immediately or gradually during the film. the time it has been playing can vary considerably, and sometimes it doesn't happen at all. i turn the vcr off and the tv picture is fine, later i can return to the vcr and the picture is fine. any ideas?

Re: hitachi 23" tv/ toshiba vcr

Sounds like a problem in your VCR IF what your saying is when the screen goes dark and you turn off the VCR then the screen on the tv returns to normal?? Does this happen with the vcr on and the tape not playing?? No Ok you have a problem in the video processor Ic or the circuit but most likly the IC as Ive seen this already twice in a toshiba VCR. No if it happens even when the VCR is on but the tapes not plying and the vcr is sitting, and the screen fades The problem is the on screen disply IC in the vcr. seen this a dozon or so times already. Vcrs no a days are not worth the money to invest Unless you got a really good one from the past, BUT you can by a good on for these times for well under 100 bucks . Good Luck

You need to give more info. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

No sound - no video on TV

if you're hooking your VCR via analog video input of your TV then check that the yellow colored video wire goes to yout TV video input, will also be colored yellow inside the terminal. The white and red color inputs are for audio. Likewise the output of your VCD will have the same colord code Yellow for video, red/white for audio (stereo). After setting this up, select your TV function to video in, be sure to check your video input channel as well if you're having more than one video input. Video 1 or 2 or 3. Make sure your VCR is powered up when you start to setup your TV function select.

if you're hooking your VCR to your TV via RF signal (over your TV tuner) You need to scan the right frequency to get it tuned to your TV channel. Cabling willbe via RF antenna input of your TV and RF antenna out of your VCR.

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.

You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.

Toshiba 24AF41 TV won't turn on.

nothing can destroy your tv. you can connect anything if connection is there. We connected the TV with a VCR and a DVD player. Usually we switched it to the Video 1 for nothing instead of turn off the TV. Is TV still working in this way? Will this destroy TV? I appreciate any of your helpful comments can you clear the above sentence so I can help you.
