Because this product is a combination of a VCR and a DVD recorder, you must select first which component you wish to operate with VCR/DVD DVD mode Press DVD on the remote control. Verify that the DVD indicator is lit VCR mode Press VCR on the remote control.(Verify that the VCR indicator is lit OR I set up this pdf link...click on it and it will show you all necessary steps http://www.helpowl.com/manuals/toshiba-dvr670-owners-manual-english-70453af.pdf
If even the sound aside from the video is not reproduced on the TV, then your description "connect" indicates that the TV is not set to receive the audio/video signals from the VCR. Initially, pls try:
set the TV to Channel 3 (or 4); or
set the TV to A/V, Video 1 or Aux 1.
Additionally, you need to confirm how the VCR is hooked to the TV unit, bu a single coaxial cable or 3 cables with RCA connectors (yellow, red & white).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

grace0308, Many of the combo units have multiple video outputs and some, like the SVHS and RGB Component outputs, are for DVD only. Make sure that you are plugged into the proper video output. Play a tape and try them all.
One way is to manually select the missing channel with the numeric keypad, then push "add." There is also an auto program function puts the VCR into a search mode, adding all channels where a good signal is found. Early VCRs (like late '80s or so) did not have this auto mode, but many later ones did. Also, make sure your VCR is set to the "cable" or "CATV" mode not "off-air"
Do you have the VCR manual? If not, recheck your model and see if Panasonic has it online at http://service.us.panasonic.com/OperMan/Default.
I looked at at a manual for a PV-4651, and it showed functions which sounded similiar to what you need. Check pg. 10-12
It really sounds like the child lock has been activated. This uaually blocks the keys on the TV, but the remote should work.
If your remote doesn't work either, make sure the batteries work.
If your remote for the TV can operate other apliances such as a VCR or DVD player, make sure it is in TV mode. If there are any buttons marked TV, VCR, DVD you could try pressing the TV button to set it in TV mode. If the To has a text-tv function there might be more than one button marked TV; one for setting TV mode as posed to DVD operating mode, and one for getting TV picture back when viewing text pages.
