Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I cannot connect my philips vcr to my rca t.v.

They are both working fine but the t.v. asks me to set up the VCR, asks for the product name and I select it from a drop down menu, but it won't connect, it tells me to refer back to the manual. Unfortunately I don't have the manual any longer.

The cable is connected from the outlet to the TV directly;

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Just the one that we are trying to connect to the TV. We did prior to this, this T.V. is now our second T.V. The previous vcr was connected through shaw cable box and the standard connectors. That is what we are using now, just the standard connectors that you get with the VCR upon purchase.



    Both the VCR or DVD player and the T.V. are "working" but they are not "reading each other" as the T.V. is requesting that we set it up through the menu.

    Super8 asked for clarification whether a VCR was connected to our t.v. I have "posted" my answer. Hopefully you have received my comments.



    We have a vcr player attached to the t.v. the phillips - brand new from walmart, both of them are in working order. The t.v. is connected to cable by just a connector; and the tv and vcr are connected by the standard cords that come with the player.

While I was entering the information on this website I realized that what I was trying to do was connect a "VCR" instead of a "DVD" player, and that was that. Our TV remote has two separate buttons one for the dvd and one for the vcr, because this is a dvd player, press the button and vola - so that was the solution to the problem.

Its kind of like, make sure your T.V. is plugged in before you call the repairman!

Thanks for your help.
