what method are you using to connect the devices? if you are using av cables - scart, or av to av, it could be a cable problem, try switching them.
only other thing is it could be that the tv is not set to av correctly, or the camcorder is not set up to feed av correctly.
On the power switch. Does it say camera/ player or Camera vtr. If it says player you can not record in vcr as you put it. In the earily days when camcorders were $800 and over ,they all Recorded from line in in the vtr mode. Not any more . See you you can switch to line in mode in the vtr postion however.

Well you need a Video Input device, Software and AV cables. Install Video Capture card, (A TV card with external in are useful too) either PCI or USB, install the device and Drivers and Video Software, then using AV Camera to Video IN cables connect Camera to Video Audio IN, and then start Video Program on PC, Que up Camera for PLAY, press Record on Software, press Play on VCR. Then you will be able to save the stored Video for later playback. You will be able to save as many formats too and be able to burn to DVD.
There is some good video software called Dscaler, & KMPLayer, both well worth downloading and using. links below.

I connect my camcorder to the TV with regular RCA plugs (yellow, white, red). The camera RCA plug-in holes are in a separate compartment. I can see what I am recording on the TV if the camera power switch is pushed over to "camera". I do my recording. Rewind. Then I have to push the power switch to "off" then over to "VCR" , and push "play" on the camera in order to see the play back on the TV screen. See if your power switch has several positions. I hope this info. is helpful.
