Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

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.

Combo VCR/DVD player has no cable connection on back> How do I hook it up, through adigital box, to an older TV with one set of white, yellow and red connections?


What outputs are available on the digital box? If you have composite out (AV), then you connect the yellow (video), red and white (audio) to the VCR composite IN on the DVD player. Then connect the composite out from the DVD player to the TV. You will need an extra RCA composite cable. If you need one, they can be found in most stores. (try an online shop that specializes in cables to avoid an outrageous price). The VCR In is to the Right of the DVD/VCR Out.

If the incoming cable is only available with a coax connection, you will need a set top box and a coax splitter. Connect the incoming coax to the input of the splitter. Then connect one coax cable to the TV antenna/cable in. Connect the other to the set top box and then connect the composite output of the set top box to the VCR composite IN.

The manual and the quick start guide are available as PDFs here: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=en&scy=us&ctn=DVP3345VB/F7 . For diagrams of the connection to a cable or other set top box see the FAQs on the right hand side of the page.

If your cable box has some other output, you will need an appropriate converter to go from component to composite video for example.

I hope this helps.

MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not accept tapes. DVD works fine. RCA help line is a joke. I will never buy another RCA product.


Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

Magnavox VCR/CD player will not come on. It is


I have purchased a new VCR/CD player. I tried everything, but nothing worked. I did purchase another Magnavox, but if this machine does not perform any longer than the first one, I will not purchase another one. The reason I purchased a Magnavox this time was that there were no other products available in my town.

LG VCR GC480W can't tune in to tv


Any vcr I know of usually is tuned through channels 3 or 4 unless they are hooked up directly by RCA patchcord. 3 pronged- 2 audio and 1 video. With the patchcord you'll be tuning through an auxilary input in the tv.

Vcr


The vcr and the dvd are separate entities in the same box. I have the DVR610 Toshiba and I connected it to my TV with an HDMi cable and it worked fine for the DVD but I couldn't get the VHS to play. I hooked up RCA cables as it describes in the manual and it works fine. In other words you need a separate connection for each entity.

I'm not sure how to get the Game cube connected through the VCR/DVD player... the tv only has a cable screw in connection, not the color cables, I have already got it so the VCR is connected to the tv,...


Plug the game cube RCA (speaker type) OUT jacks into the VCRs video/audio IN jacks(RCA TYPE)--yellow is video. You may have to press the tv/vcr button on the vcr to get the picture to pass through--or change your vcr setting to AUX in. but this should work for you-if not let me know.
