My T.V. works great DVD and any channels I get on antena, but when i put a VHS in it plays for about 5-10 seconds then my T.V. shuts down. I turn it back on and the tape get ejected automatically. During the first couple seconds of play, picture and sound is great. Any help??
It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.

If you wish to record (VHS) off cable :
First connect the co-ax cable from the wall to the input on the DVD/VHS , then connect a second from the output of the DVD/VHS to the input of the TV.
You will need to match the channel (3/4) output and input. There should be a switch on the back of the DVD/VHS.
Tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 to match, To watch DVD/VHS .
Channel selection will be with the DVD/VHS when it is powered on.
TV will tune to channel when the DVD/VHS is off.
Hi; This is and usual indication of a poor spindel motor that needs replacing it is the motor that spins the disc, it is the most common failue in DVD's and CD plyrs. You can't just replace the motor you will have to replace what called the mech assembly which will include the spindle motor/Laser/stepping motor etc...
U must make sure ur tv channels must work throught ur DVD and VCR unit.Then u can record it out the tv show programs.U must connect the tv air signal or cable to the DVD VCR unit in the antena port.Use another cable connect out on the DVD &VCR unit and in the tv signal input in ur tv antena input.Make sure u in the channel 3 or 4 switch desire back of the DVD&VCR of the back,and the tv correct to ur desire channel switch to 3 or 4 .U
can record tv shows now.
I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
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.
I just got done recording a vhs to dvd and it worked great. Also you can print the manual at manualsonline.com or something like that.. google it, i printed mine. I had to watch the enitre vhs to record it. As you are playing the vhs (right at the beginning) push the blue D. Dubbing button then when its done playing push stop on the DVD side it will say writing to disk on the bottom once thats done ooha la!! I am trying to figure out if there is a way to dub a vhs to dvd without having to watch the howl movie but unfortunatley I don't think there is!
