Channel keeps changing to 'Input 2' even when playing DVD

Channel keeps changing to 'Input 2' all by itself, even when playing a DVD or VCR. Thought it might be the cable connection, but still happens wiht DVD player, even when cable totally disconnected.

Tried new batteries in remote, checked all cable connections.

Can anybody help? - Thank you!

    Thank you for your suggestion. We had no batteries in remotes for some time, as we thought the remotes might be the problem (I assume that's as good as having the remotes out of the room). I'm not sure if this is what you were specifically referring to... but based on your suggestion, I ran the cable connection through the surge protector, rather than directly to the tv, and the problem is still occurring. Any other thoughts?

Have you taken the remote control out of the room? Try changing inputs from the TV.

Sanyo vwm390 vcr


That might be the TV output channel. I found these instructions in a Sanyo manual:
How to set the DVD+VCR's RF output channel 1. Set the TV to the VCR channel (3 or 4) depending upon the selected channel. 2. When the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel for more than five seconds. It will turn itself on and "RF03" or "RF04" appears in the dis-play window. 3. Press CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel or CH/TRK(v/V) on the remote control to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or CH 04). 4. Turn off the DVD+VCR.


It might solve the problem!

I was able to connect a dvd player to old tv with a rf modulator.now is there a way to hook up a vcr on same rf modulator so as not to change connections each time you want to watch the vcr with instead of...


well...the reason its sooo hard is that this modulator is not intended for this use. its used for BIG jobs. you can normally do what you want with a simple rf modulator you buy at walmart or radio shack as it has a cable in and cable out, but

You dont even need a rf modulator.
The VCR can do it for free simply; hook the yellow , white if your vcr has red as well (depending on how old )...BOTH or all Three color to color from VCR(INPUT) to DVD
then use a piece of coax cable from the vcr out to tv.

test vcr by making sure that it work on either channel 3 - or 4 on tv. (leave VCR on)

Then to test your DVD connection first turn DVD player on.;.Then on front of VCR press channel down ON VCR until it says L1 or L2 this is under channel 2 when channel downing.

you should now see the dvd player on screen on either L1 or L2 depending on vcr.

now buy doing this your vcr must be on the L1 (L2) anytime you watch a dvd but when you want to watch a tape you just put it in and press play since TV itself is never changed.
when you want to go back to dvd,...stop tape and should still be right on the L1 or L2 again.

What is the channel I put the TV on to play my DVD?


Your dvd should have an RCA output, no coax. Therefore you can't use it like the vcr putting it on channel 3. You have a yellow, red, white input on the tv. You have to change the source/input on the tv to the corresponding input. Input 1, input 2, etc. If you need more help, I will be monitoring this for the rest of the evening.

How do I hook up my vcr to my dvd recorder so I


You will need one RCA video cable it will have a yellow, red and white plugs. On the back of your VCR locate where the color inputs are find where it says VIDEO OUT hook it up there. On the back of the DVD Recorder look for the same color input jacks NOW find where it says VIDEO IN hook it up there. You may have to turn on your TV,DVD recorder and VCR to get the right channel. your Recorder may have one or more video inputs if it does turn on all three. Use the channel on your TV you use to watch DVDs make sure you see your DVD screen. Now to record to a DVD. Change the channel on the DVD Recorder. Look for the input channels It may be Video 1 Video 2 etc... depends on the inputs you have. ( A great way to tune your DVD Recorder is to play a prerorded VCR tape. Turn the channel on your DVD Recorder unil you see the prereorded tape playing. )

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!

I need playback channel for tv to be ch.4 -


Solution 1

How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

Solution 2

Cable Service With Cable Box
If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
To view or record a CATV channel:
1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

Hooking up dvd player


Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.

If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.
