Hi joe holmes, my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and withconnecting the VCR to the DISH receiver you will want to make sure the VCR ison the channel for the DISH receiver. I will send a link that will help withthese steps; http://www.dishnetwork.com/supportsection/receiver-to-tv2
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.
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.
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.
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.
1. Set tv to channel 4
2. insert a pre-recorded tape into vcr.
3.press play once to start playback.
4. after a few seconds press play on the vcr for 3 sec you will see a playback picture.
when a picture doesn't appear on the tv screen repeat step 4.
5. press stop to stop playback.
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.
