Hello L46k,

The fact that you sound is working when you use the VCR tells me that the Audio circuitry is working. So lets move back to the last point that the IF signal is present before demodulation into audio. If you have a tone injector set the IF point and the use the injector to see if you hear the tone out of the speakers, or I can ask you a question that begs to be asked here?
That question is did you check your SAP settings, this can cause the problems you are seeing. Do this go to your on-screen menu and in the audio section choose English and turn off SAP.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

    Hello L46k,

    I writing this not in disappointment with the rating, but to inform you about your problem. You have a VCR/TV combo unit, which is actually a misnomer because there is no such thing as a TV/VCR combo. In reality what you have is a VCR with a High Voltage section, a deflection section, and a section to take the composite video and matrix it into three signals which are R B (chroma) and Y(luminance) (Green is derived from the algebraic addition of the RB and Y signals). Now that being said, the audio out from the VCR and the audio out from the TV are from the same circuit (literally). So you troubles between with the audio playing in VCR mode vs TV mode can only be a function of the configuration since the VCR in tape mode does not use SAP, while the TV mode more then likely would use SAP. That is why I asked you to check your SAP settings, in fact check all of your audio settings since the VCR section is acting as your tuner, your Quadrature detector (where audio and video are separated), and your Video and audio output prior to the color matrix and audio amplifier. The audio however comes from the VCR/TV audio section (in both modes) So the only differing factor is the configuration of the audio output. Again I ask you to check your audio settings.

    Thank you,

SOURCE: RCA model f32649

Hi, Based on your post/description, it would appear that the TV tuner of the RCA is at fault. Chances are the the VHF Low is not working right but the VHF High is. This is an inshop repair probably requiring component replacement. You may want to confirm by checking your TV's setup in the menu, you should have Cable selected instead of Air or STd and do a Memory + (scan and add channels). If still a no go, then back to the tuner suspect. The VCR will not display any movie since it normally transmits in Channel 3 (which is VHF Low). If there are no other problem with the VCR then you might still be able to use it by connection it to the A/V inputs of the TV. If the VCR works in A/V mode, then perhaps you may want to save the repair expense of the RCA TV and use the tuner of the VCR to watch TV and switch channels. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels


It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

The key is having at least a Universal Remote ($10.00 or less) that will operate your brand of TV. Your TV is only looking at "stations". You need to make it see Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode. BUT, another trick is to run the DVD into your VCR (if capable). Select the VCR proper "input mode" (Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode) then the DVD will play through the VCR and it will play through the TV on either channel 3 or 4. Problem solved!

Connecting TV to combo DVD and VCR


When you say "can't get the TV to play through the VCR", do you mean that you can't get the cable-stations to play through the VCR to the TV? I'll assume that's what you're trying to accomplish.

The most common way to connect a VCR to a TV is through a coaxial cable, from the port on the rear of the VCR labeled "Out to TV." There should be another coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In." This is where I picture your cable programming is currently connected.

Instead, it sounds like you connected the VCR to a modulator (probably thru RCA composite cables, which have yellow / red / white plugs). Then the modulator connects to the TV thru a coaxial cable. This will successfully play the VCR to whatever specific channel (perhaps 2, 3 or4), but the modulator doesn't know of any other signals to send to your TV.

2 possible solutions:

1) If the modulator has a coaxial port labeled "Cable/Ant In" or something indicating "In" at a threaded coaxial port, connect your cable-programming to this instead of the to the VCR.

Depending on what type of modulator it is, when you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable-programming, you might have to push a button on the modulator to make the swtich, or you might not. Your modulator might put the VCR on channel 3, and allow the higher cable channels to filter though to their respective stations. Most cable providers will leave channels 2, 3 and 4 blank for this purpose. Try it and see.

2) Axe the modulator. Take it out of the system entirely. Connect your cable programming to the VCR "Cable/Ant In" and use another coaxial cable to go from the VCR's "Out to TV" port to the TV. When you want to switch from watching the VCR to watching cable, press a button on your VCR or the VCR's remote. Usually this button is labled, "TV/VCR."

If this does not help, write back and explain in more detail how your system is currently connected.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?


This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

VCR not working with TV


What you state cannot be logical. If picture is freezing, then the VCR is at fault. But you state that the VCR works fine when played, and viewed on another TV. So, the only explanation I can think of is that there is some thing faulty with your VCR. Probably, when you play a tape, the picture freezes. This could be 'cos the Capstan motor of the VCR freezes. Common problem with aged VCRs. Just requires a spot of grease, and service. IT CANNOT BE THE TV AT FAULT!!!!

VCR DOES NOT WORK WITH NEW CABLE BOX


If you can get some of the stations without the box (often the case for those who subscribe to digital cable or movie channels), then one setup is to split the raw cable and feed the box and the TV, then have the box feed the VCR and hook up the VCR composite video and line level audio outputs to the TV. The VCR tuner would always be set to the VHF frequency your cable box RF output is on, usually ch. 2, 3 or 4. This setup allows PIP to work, with the TV tuner limited to unscrambled analog stations, and it also allows you to tape anything coming through the box, while watching unscrambled analog stations on the TV. However, it requires the VCR to be on and the TV set to the external video input to simply watch what is coming through the cable box. There are other ways to set this up with more flexibility using splitters and A/B switches, or you can look for a special switch box that handles the job. The above assumes your TV has composite video and line level audio inputs. The only way to have full flexibility to watch any scrambled or unscrambled station at the same time as taping a scrambled station is to have 2 cable boxes. The only way to have your VCR control the cable box and record different programs by switching the box by itself is to have a VCR with a cable box controller, also known as a cable "mouse". Hope this helps
