Tv wil not change channels unless vcr is on

The power went off and back on early one morning. Now the tv will display the channel number on the screen but will not change channels. You must turn on the vcr in order to change channels. I took the batteries out for 12 hours and also held the number 1 down for over 60 seconds to drain the micropocessor. I have unpluged the tv, receiver, and vcr for over 12 hours. I have tried everything on the remote and even the controls on the tv does not work.

You must go into the menu, go to the channel setup and do a channel scan.. Your TV simply lost the channel memory. Good Luck

How do i record from tv to vcr and play back

Leon, I believe models that are able to do this have a built in tuner, so that means cable would go into VCR/DVD player/recorder then to TV.
Your TV would be set on Channel 3 or 4 and the VCR/DVD would then be used to change channels and also allow recording of program.

Do I need to throw out my GoVideo because it is not digital. Comcast recently went all digital and I cannot get any response on my VCR. Channel 3's view stays consistance from the TV Channel and doesn't...

Not if the unit itself still works; that is, it still plays videotapes and DVDs (with picture and sound).

Check your TV, you may have the wrong input selected for your unit (and/or other connected devices), or the TV is on the wrong channel; hence why you can't see anything from the VCR.

As for the ComCast box, give them a call and ask about it - quote the box number, and ask if it is digital or analogue - if it is the latter, they should replace the box free of charge as part of your cable subscription.

You do not need a new combo unit, unless you want one later which has a digital tuner. All it means is that you have no analogue TV channels in your combo unit.

Sharp TV-Remote not working correctly

You will need to complete a channel scan from the tvs menu. I assume you have basic cable and that your cable company is still providing analog channels for you to be able to pick up any transmission on this telvision with the digital changeover and all.

Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?

If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR (not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.

If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape, select the channel you want to record and press the record button.

If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change channels.

When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view your recording.

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
