Question about RCA VR622HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

No signal on screen in VCR mode

I recently purchased a new 42 inch plasma TV. Hooked up my RCA VCR model VR673HF and it worked fine. About a week later I tried to tape a show by going from Component 1 to TV and instead of a screen where I could input the program info I got a black screen on the TV and the words no signal. Did I push a wrong key somewhere on the remote? By the way I have digital high definition TV. I have tried pushing several keys both on the TV remote and the Cable remote, but to no avail. My son from out of town set up the set for me and I;m afraid I;ll press a wrong key and not even be able to watch TV. Would appreciate any help I can get.

Re: No signal on screen in VCR mode

I assume your plasma set has one or more auxillary (component) inputs, and to one of these is where you should hook in the VCR. You will have a video input jack, and a set of audio input jacks (probably 2 for stereo) for each of these aux. input sets. While exact setups differ, depending on your cable box(es), DVD players, and whatever other equip., a likely hookup is from the VCR video & audio outputs to one set of the aux. inputs on the plasma set. When you want to use the VCR for playback, you must select that particular aux. input with the plasma remote. Some of the hookups these days get complicated by all the equip. some have, but the above is at least a start. Thanks

My Samsung TV work fine. My RcA VHS VCR when I want to record the screen said WEAK or NO SIGNAL

VCRs use Channel three or Four to watch the tape. It is better if you use the video out on the VCR to go IN to the TV video In on a modern TV.
For record, the VCR cannot see Digital TV. You must connect the Digital TV box or satellite box Video Out to the Video In on the VCR.

I need to know how to hook up my vcr to my dvr to record something off of it onto a vhs tape. directv said i need to contact the maker of the vcr & guess what RCA doesn't help with that. but i...

Ok. You connect the vcr to the televison first. Take an rca cable and connect it to the video out of the vcr then connect the other end to the av input on your television. Then take another set of RCA cables and connect them to the RCA av input on your vcr and connect the other end to the output on your dvr.

Now hopefully your tv has another RCA input you can hook directly to the dvr with another set of RCA cables to another one of the dvrs outputs. If not then don't worry about that.

Now make sure the tv is switched over to the av video RCA input the vcr is connected to and turn the vcr on. The vcr should be in input and when it is you will see the picture from your dvr and you will change channels with your dvr remote. You can now record using the vcr remote.

It seems to me that you have only got one set of RCA Cablec between the TV and VCR ( from VCR Video out to TV Video In), as such the VCR only works in playback mode, you need a second set of RCA cables (from TV Video Out to VCR Video In) then select the appropriate input (Video) for the VCR. make sure to follow the colour coding on the RCA plug / socket arrangement

RCA VCR makes high pitched whining noise when it's on...

The power supply is starting to fail. There are a number of capacitors in the power supply that need to be replaced. A local repair shop should be able to fix this easily. Figure on $10 max for parts.

Not a good signal

You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.
