Hi, I've read yr problem with the Panasonic VCR.
It's the TVset you have to switch to channel 36 to get video. When yr watching with a coax. Otherwise you're watching via scart and you just have to switch to AV.
It's some time ago your Q and I think the vcr is longtime burnt. Mine did twice...;- ) Belegian greetz

VCR may not be tuned to the right channel. If you are using your VCR for the tuner then your tv is set to channel 3. Check your cabling again as well. From the wall to the VCR. From the VCR to the TV. You also need to make sure that you programmed the VCR for all of the channels. Just like you would for a TV.
In the Menu go to manual channel set-up not auto. When you're in manual set-up change channels until you get to to L-1 and L-2 (should be below Ch 2) and save both to memory. On some TV's the L-1 and L-2 are selected with a separate button labeled "input". .
An analog VCR can only be used the same way as an analog TV. You should be able to set the VCR to the converter boxes output channel ( 3 for example) and then set the VCR to record that channel at the correct times. Then just tune the converter box to the correct channel. Please note that if you try this while you are at home (recording one thing while watching another) you will wind up recording whatever is on the channel you change to.
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
ok. This is a really easy one.
All you have to do is hold down the menu button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds, If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds. If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the actual vcr unit for 15 seconds. The first method should work for Panasonic's fine.
This will then display your current rf output.
You can then change the output by using the up and down arrows or the channel up and down button on your remote or the vcr unit.
Press menu button to save or the same button you used to bring up the rf opposition eg power button on remote or the unit.
First, check in the VCR setup and see if it set for cable or off-air/broadcast/antenna (not always named the same). If it is set for off-air... then it won't tune cable channels beyond 13. It must be set for cable mode in order to tune those upper channels (mid-band, superband etc.).
I assume you have the VCR hooked up correctly- cable into VCR antenna/RF input, VCR RF/to TV output to the RF/Ant input of the TV.
