You don't say what kind of tv,model,etc. or if the tv tuner is 'solid state', push button, knob type channel changer.
If you REALLY, REALLY have to use the tv through the vcr.place the signal [antenna, cable box, cable antenna (signal) in vcr RF input.place a blank vhs tape to record, use the RCA jacks[AUDIO & VIDEO] in back of the VCR to INPUT of TV video & audio ( if you have then ) While you are recording, you will be able to see the tv program.
p.s. place the TV\VCR switch to vcr.

Model VWM-290 VCR THAT HAS RF-30 CODE


RF codes are generally associated with older VCR's that used to output signals via the TV aerial system. It's when you used to tune the TV to the VCR channel. I think if you press a couple of numbers such as 4 and 9 on the remote it will then say RF-49. In which case if you have an old analogue tuner on your TV you could then tune it to channel 49 and see the VCR picture. Generally it's no longer used for the reason of digital TV, but also due to the fact you could not get a stereo sound with it and the picture wasn't as good as via a scart socket.

The picture doesn't hold. The picture shows just snow on the tv.


VCRs are analogue. So their tuners won't pick up digital TV signals, and their output from the aerial socket is analogue too. You'll have to make sure your TV is on the analogue TV tuner and then tuned to the VCR output channel if you want to use the aerial connection for viewing. It's probably a lot simpler though to use the VCR's AV output to the TV.

If you connect a TV receiver (Aerial/cable/satellite) to the AV input on the VCR, then switch the VCR to that AV input, you will see and be able to record programmes.

My jvc HR D170 ES vcr used to work fine when suddenly the picture ( snow ) is very bad but sound is ok ...tried to retune to my tv ...tried changing the rf at back ...tried tuning to my other tv and...


The vcr is fine. buy a cleaning tape. people say dry cleaner tapes wear out the heads, but it fixed my problem when my vcr only showed snow. but try a wet tape first. follow the instructions that came with the tape and run it a few times.

Vcr is not talking to the tv


If your TV is all digital and does not have an analog NTSB tuner you will have to use component input connections from the VCR to the TV instead of the RF (antenna) cable connection. First try pressing the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote to provide a direct VCR feed to the TV.

Sony SLV-640HF Problem


I would be inclined to say that there are only two likely problems that you may be encountering. Either you are getting a bad signal feed, or the connectors on the cable are getting old and need replaced. The connection to the cable can break down over time, especially if they have been connected and reconnected several times. I cannot rule out problems caused by the transition to DTV, but that doesnt seem likely if there are only a few channels affected. As far as "selective failure" of the VCR's built-in tuner, I would say that that is also a very unlikely source for the problem If the tuning components inside the tuner had gone out, I would expect to see a problem on all channels watched through the system. If you are having this problem on all channels of the sony, then the tuner could surely be the problem, but if you haven't used it much that would indicate a problem at manufacturing, however since at least one of the machines is working fine on some channels and not on all of them, I would suspect the connections or the signal from your cable company. Contact them first ands see if they are having signal issues, if not try replacing your connectors.

Snowy picture on VCR with only certain channels


In all likelyhood, you have a bad ground somewhere in the cable. Try other channels through the VCR. If the ground is the problem, there will be a cluster of channels that are snowy with the rest being clear. Check the cable itself and all of the connectors along it.

If the cable and connectors are good, the tuner or power supply of the VCR could be faulty and cause this as well.

Broksonic VCR


It should be either ch 3 or 4, BUT the VCR must be turned on and in the "vcr" mode. There may also be an way that you can switch between tuner and Video on the VCR, it would need to be in video mode.

Hope that helps...

Can't get vcr to record


Make sure you are giving the VCR a signal.
If using a RF source (cable or antenna), make sure the VCR's tuner is set up for the right type and channels.
When trying to record put the TV's input to the VCR to make sure it is getting what you want.
