Tv remote won't change channels

Somehow after I had been messing with the vcr remote to do some recording, I can only change channels on the tv when the vcr is on and when I am using the vcr remote. It's like the vcr remote has taken over the channel button. When the vcr is off, the only thing that works on the tv remote is the the volume and input buttons. I've been messing with the split screen trying to get it it work...when I hit split screen on my Tv remote, I can get the Tv remote channels to work. But I don't want to have to watch in split screen. Does anybody know what sequence of buttons I need to press to get it back to normal? I've tried the video/tv button on the vcr remote.

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

SOURCE: My Olevia TV will not change channels using the remote or buttons

First thing, check batteries in remote, next make sure there are no obstructions between your remote and your tv. i would then call olevia tech support and describe your problem. sounds like the remote sensor has failed. usually covered under warranty. check with olevia to see if they have a factory wide problem or issue with remotes. persistance pays off in this case so just keep on top of tech support. hope this helps, john.

Mine did. I know this may be a crude method, but it worked.

I have a mitsubishi black dimond vcr id like to tune into a sharp tv how do i do this please


Ok, to hook it up to use as a Receiver, and TV, as a "Monitor". Using the antenna cable, plug this into the antenna IN socket on VCR. Now connect up, AV, using the Yellow, Video, Audio, is Red & White, on BOTH TV & Video. Now select an EXTERNAL INPUT on the TV. Now You Tune, and scan for "Channels" using the VCR. Find each channel, and save, now, you use the VCR remote to change channels, and the TV, is used as a "Display Monitor".
The Other way, is to just use the VCR as a "Recorder only, you plug the antenna, into the TV, now at rear of TV, you have a Video OUT, Yellow, and Stereo, Audio OUT, Red & White. Connect up the VCR to the TV using them. Now anything you View on TV, will be out put to the VCR, when you wish to record, simply press record, on Remote/VCR as desired. and it will record.

How do i connect the vcr to the tv so it records on the channel i want. i tried recording but was a different channel. i do not have the remote for the vcr


If the TV has a scart socket and the vcr also, you can connect it that way, with a scart lead. Then all you need do is press the channel button on the VCR till it reads AV. There may be more than one AV socket so use the one with the connection of the scart lead, it should say on the scart socket what it is. IE: AV1. All you need do is set the channel on the TV you want to record, the press record.
You won't be able to watch another channel though while recording.
Some TV's with multi scart have options for AV settings or recording from the TV, so check these out.
Consider buying a universal remote.

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

Have cable tv and wanting to tape a certain channel


I would suggest that you disconnect the VCR from any signal source. UNPLUG the VCR from the power source [a/c] for at least one hour, more if possible. Before you are ready to plug the machine into a/c attach an antenna to the antenna INPUT, the VCR output goes to input of tv. [ DON'T attach cable box, or any such machine to the input of VCR.] Plug vcr into outlet and turn ON. Place TV-VCR switch on TV. [no remote control??] Change the channel MANUALLY, one channel at a time. If you see tv stations as you change the channel [KEEP changing until you have reached the " end of the line " of broadcast channels.] then you are good.Connecting the vcr to a cable box[ANY KIND!] you can only RECORD through the vcr what you watch on cable.

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
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.
bye.

Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?

If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR (not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.

If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape, select the channel you want to record and press the record button.

If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change channels.

When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view your recording.
