    BEFORE OUR UPGRADE WITH THE DISH NETWORK WHERE WE HAVE TO TUNE TO CHANNEL 73 TO WATCH DISH, WE WERE SET ON CHANNEL 4 ON THE BACK OF THE VCR AND ON THE TV. NOW WITH THE UPGRADE, I PUT IN A TAPE AND PRESS PLAY, NOTHING ON SCREEN; CHANGED TV CHANNEL TO 4 - AGAIN NOTHING. SO... ANY HELP?

    THANK YOU.

My VCR will not record but I can play tapes on it. how come?


The simplest explanation is that you are using a video tape that has it's protect tab removed. Covering the slot with tape will solve that. However if the tab is there, it might be that the switch inside it pushes on is bent or broken.

Will not load tape.


Well it might be 2 things like maybe the tape is broken like the white circle parts on the bottom of the castette tapes are loose or broken or the machine for the part that allows the tapes to sit in there might be broken or have something inside of the vcr like a coin or another forein odject like that then.

I have Dish network. I want to record TV onto the VCR, but cannot get channels to record. i can playback videotapes and the record works, but cannot figure out how to get the signal to record.


The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR.
The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV.
The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.

It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input.
& VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.

Can't view tapes on vcr


I assume that you are coming in on channel 73 because you don't have a line level input on the display (tv) you are using. If that is the case, your options are limited. If you DO have a line input to the monitor, run the VCR to that input and just switch to that input when you want to use the VCR. If you have RF in only, -that would be the screw on type connector- you would have to have the same kind of output on the VCR. Understand, the VCR will be outputting to channel 3 or 4, so you would need a 2x rf switch, and you would have to change from channel 73 to 3 or 4 whenever you wanted to watch a movie. There may be other options, but I don't really know what you have.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

Will only display on ch 3


You will need to take the original remoter and go into the menu, find the channel set up and reprogram the VCR for the channels, as when you lost power the channels also went out because of the memory chips need the power to hold the data.
