Having trouble hooking old VCR up to new LG TV and Integra Receiver. Feel like I'm missing a step...


Look at the back of the tv. What is it labeled at where you plugged the VCR into. Should probably say composite in. After that's verified, go into the tv menu and make sure you have selected composite input. Should be no need for any settings on VCR, it has to be settings on tv

Can't get my vcr off auto. It keeps flashing and vcr won't shut off. Can't get to the menu long enough to see how to shut it off


Try unplugging the VCR for 20 seconds and plugging it back in. It probably will still flash because the clock needs to be reset but you should be able to turn it on and off.

No power


I assume you unplugged the unit for several minutes and tried plugging it back in to reset it. Is the outlet ok? Did you try plugging something else into the same outlet and it worked?

If the cord is ok and the fuse isn't blown and the VCR is completely dead, I would say that you have a problem in the power supply section. This could be a bad transformer, rectifier or regulator module. Unfortunately you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Missing manual for - sharp VC-A560 VHS


I lost my manual and the biggest issue of getting this set up is getting the vcr to the channel you need for play back either channel 3 or channel 4. To change the channel you hold the power button and the tv/vrc button at the same time till you get the channel you want. Three flashing lights is channel three, four flashing lights is channel 4. every time the power goes out mine resets to channel 3 and will not play videos until I reset to channel 4. Hope that helps.

You have a power supply problem and it most likly will not be worth you purchacing a schematic for this unit unless you want to spend 25 bucks + to fix it.
