Question about Emerson EWC1304 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Picture gets dark and light

Odd problem. The VCR part of the combo tv didn't work any longer so we hooked up a different vcr to the television. Some VHS movies would play without a problem while others would go from dark to light about every 5 seconds for the duration of the film. We left it alone and only watched some movies. Just today, we hooked a dvd player to it and removed the vcr. Same problem. Some dvds are fine...the rest go dark and light. What is that?? Originally, we thought it was the vcr. But, now it seems it must be the television. Any insight? Many thanks.

We were just watching a vhs movie on our tv/vcr combo unit and the picture went to fuzz however, the sound was still working. any suggestions or are we in need of a new unit.


Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. Usually that tracking function is used as follows.
While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.

If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.

If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck

Problems playing vhs tapes


Have you tried the VCR on a different TV? Could be a faulty VCR and not the TV.

With what kind of cable do you have the VCR hooked up to the tv with? Composite or Coaxial?
