I can't record digital tv on the dvd recorder coupled with a new philips tv with built in digital


You need a freeview box to connect to the scart INPUT of the DVD recorder. The Freeview box has to have a programmable timer built in. Connect your aerial to the freeview box, the aerial output then goes into the TV. You program the DVD to the times you want to record each program, but always the input is the SCart. You the program the Freeview box to change to the right program at the beginning of the program you want to record.

Watch tv properly with JVC DVD off


Some philips tv's have a built in aerial amplifier, perhaps if you bought a digital aerial booster it will improve the picture quality.

DVD's not playing in color


sounds like the problem is the TV . your tv have to different inputs , COMPONENT is for the separate color , BLUE , RED , GREEN this is for better video quality , if your DVD doesnt have this OUTPUT feature , then maybe the YELLOW (VIDEO) , RED & WHITE ( AUDIO ) thats coming out from your DVD player is connected to the COMPONENT input of your TV , GETTING the B&W effect. it should be connected to the VIDEO input of your TV ( yellow , red , white ) hope this is helpful AJ

We have a philips up-grader dvd player and get color distortion


I would try hooking something else up to your tv that is hdmi compatible. If your tv looks fine, then you know it would be the dvd player. If it's the dvd player, then I would suggest getting a different brand completely. I have had alot of bad experiences myself and other people as well when it comes to the philips brand

I have a Philips Model DVDR 3505/37 recorder. I recently hooked up a RCA analog to digital converter to the TV and to the DVD. Now it will not record. No error messages. Just no recording. Thanks


The Philips DVDR 3505/37 has a built-in analog to Digital converter. No additional converter is needed. Just do the scan for over the air channels and set to go. Works fine now.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD


Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

It may havee a problem with the button you need to press to switch from VCR to DVD, from what i understand and have seen this switch over is not automatic. On your remote you should have a control to switch from VCR to DVD. In addition on your unit there should be a button to switch from VCR to DVD. Try this and let me know how it turns out, if you are still having trouble we can setup a troubleshooting session.
