The VCR is playing and functioning, but the picture won't show up on the TV. I have all the channels set and it should be working, but the TV is the black and white static. Could it need dusted? It hasn't...

make sure the tv vcr button on the vcr is selected to vcr and that you have the tv on channel 3 or 4. try pushing the tv vcr button a few times back and forth on channel 3 then on 4. if that doesnt work try hooking the vcr up to the tv with the rca jacks. they will be yellow, white and red or maybe only two from the vcr yellow and white. hook them up the the correct input on the tv and change the input on the tv. if that doesnt work, your vcr may be done.

When I playback a movie, I am not getting picture, just block spots and no voice. What could be the reason? please help

Open the cover. Follow these steps in this order: 1. Take a cotton swab and dip it it alcohol. rub it around the head and pinch roller carefully. 2. try the tape again. If no success, 3.take a blank piece of white paper, and put a tape in the VCR. VCR must be plugged in!
Carefully touch the paper against the spinning head and hold it there. Hope this helps!

If you are using an antenna put your antenna connector into the rear of the VCR & then using a connecting cable (RF flylead), take this fron the other socket at the rear of the VCR & connect this to the antenna connector on the TV, you will then have to tune the TV to the VCR. Select channel zero for example on the TV, insert & play a tape, & then tune the TV in until it picks up the video playback picture then store this channel on the TV settings. Alternatly, do as above only use a Scart cable & connect this from the rear of the VCR to the AV connection on the rear of the TV, then when you wish to use the VCR channel, select the AV option on the TV.

My Zenith VCR is not working with the digital converter box

When the VCR is "off" the converter signal should go right through the box, which you say it does. Then, when you turn the VCR "on" the picture disappears. That, so far, how it should be. To get your picture back while the VCR is "on" you must set the VCR to "receive" channel 3, and use your new converter box to change channels...accordianman

Tv/vdr/cable box

Your hookup is correct- Your VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4, to match the cable box.

Also, the VCR channel output needs to be matched to the TV. If VCR menu options are displayed on the TV then this part is right. If not, then set either the VCR or TV to the correct channel.

No picture

This type of problem may be caused by a dirty video head, people some time try to adjust tracking to take care of this problem this is a mistake. Now to clear up this issue first you put the tracking control mid way in its setting, then you clean the heads of the VCR you can use a head cleaning tape (follow the instructions on the cleaning tape box)for this or if you have experience you use a chamois swab type cleaner (follow the instructions on the package of swabs and liquid cleaner). one the heads are cleaned you acn then try to adjust track to obtain the best picture. If you can not you may have video head problems or a problem in the drum motor (servo) mechanism. In which case I advise taking the unit to a TV repair shop.

Missing manual for - sharp VC-A560 VHS

I lost my manual and the biggest issue of getting this set up is getting the vcr to the channel you need for play back either channel 3 or channel 4. To change the channel you hold the power button and the tv/vrc button at the same time till you get the channel you want. Three flashing lights is channel three, four flashing lights is channel 4. every time the power goes out mine resets to channel 3 and will not play videos until I reset to channel 4. Hope that helps.
