VCR Issue with Toshiba SD-V295KU

Got this today. Have it hooked up per the manual instructions. The DVD Player works fine, but the VCR will play for a second or two and then go to a blue screen. Then it will cut in and out everyh minute or two. Do you have a clue what I am doing wrong? Please help.

    The DVD player on the SD-V295 works without issue, but the VCR will only play a few seconds of tape before going to a blue screen with no sound. I noticed that if I go to the VHS menu, the sound returns, but as soon as I leave the menu the sound leaves and the blue screen remains.

    Same problem. The dvd works fine. But on some video tapes it cuts to the blue screen. Although some tapes do play fine.

This may be a bit late but I just ran across these posts. All these problems can be caused by bad tapes. Commercially-made tapes will usually play properly. But home recorded tapes, or very worn tapes, may not play back properly in every VCR. If the VCR isn't getting the right information off the tape for proper playback, it's muting the sound and the screen so you don't see any snow. It's also possible that the VCR heads already need a cleaning. It takes just one worn-out or defective tape to clog up the heads and cause the "no picture" problem, although in this case sound isn't usually affected.

Toshiba sd-v295 tunerless DVD VCR Combo To Sony Digital TV Instructions


It will depend on if the Toshiba has an HDMI socket. If it has then the Sony TV will almost certanily have one. Then all you need do is get a HDMI lead and connect the two. The only other way would be via a SCART lead. If the TV has only one SCART and it's being used you can get a SCART Switching Box from places such as Amazon, where you will also get the other cables.

How Can I record a TV program using my SD-V295KU. Where Can I chose the chanel number? Can You hepl me please? This is a DVD Video Player & Video Cassette Recorder.


The SD-V295KU has no tuner. You will need to connect it to a set top tuner, a cable or satellite receiver box. One of the digital-to-analog converters would work for OTA programs from a digital station. The basic ones that were available with the government coupon give SD output; this is sufficient since composite video is limited to SD.

Then connect the composite (audio and video) out from that box to the DVD/VCR composite in (the rightmost jacks). Then set the channel on the box and record content on Line 1 (Press Input Select on the DVD/VCR's remote to get to that input after you set the recording speed.)

Most TVs do not have a composite out option so the tuner in the TV can't be used to feed the program to the DVD/VCR.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Toshiba SD-V295KU DVD/VCR Setup


Hi, David.

This unit does not have a TV tuner built in. It can record only from a video/audio source such as a satellite receiver or cable box. That's why you can't find anything in the manual about programming a channel. It doesn't offer that capability.

Not the answer you were looking for, but that's what they give you. The only solution I can offer is to keep your old VCR or pick one up at a thrift shop, and use it as the signal source. Program it to come on at the desired time on the channel you want, and use its video/audio outputs as the source for your recorder. Program the recorder to start at the same time.

Kinda klunky, but it would work.
