SOURCE: VCR doesn't record since Comcast installed digital box

Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.

SOURCE: VCR tapes "eaten"

I'm sure all it requires is a "more" up-to-date recorder (although up-to-date doesn't exist for that these days because of all the DVD's and Blu-ray discs). I am not sure if you mean the problem that it keeps doing that (problem in the recorder. Or you get it repaired, or you get yourself a new one (cheap these days, I wouldn't recommend repairing). Or you're meaning the problem that the tape is now completely ruined. If it hasn't been damaged too hardly, you can get the tape fixed. Or you get someone to repair it, or you can even try it yourself. I'm sure there are things on the internet for that.

I have a Mitsubishi HS-U448 VCR. It plays my VHS tapes fine, but I can't get a blue screen when I turn it on. When I press 'play', the movie looks great. Once I hit 'stop', it'

It sounds like it is set to a TV station and since all the analogue stations have now gone you will only get static. Without a remote you wan't be able to switch it. I suggest you either shop around for a replacement (try Curry's partmaster) or use a universal one.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?

The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

I don't recognize your first problem.  The "light to dark" issue I believe is intentionally engineered (mine does it too); it prevents recording DVDs on to tape.  Try running the DVD player directly to the TV.  Radio Shack used to have a box that would correct this issue too, you might check there.

one way is to connect an antenna to INPUT of VHS, place a tape, press play, STOP and switch VCR\TV switch to TV. u should be able to change the channels from the VHS. If that don't work, u may have switch problems.
If this works, tell the
P.S. The 'blue screen' means that you don't have a signal to the antenna inpur\TV protion of VHS.

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd

The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).

Tapes not playing

Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
or instructions.
