Question about Sony SLV-D300P DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

DVD/VCR picture (and sound) are not on tv screen

I just changed our Hitachi TV (57S700) to accept digital channels (we have rabbit ear antenna). Now I cannot get the DVD/VCR's to show on the screen nor can I hear any sound. (We have the Sony DVD Player/Video Cassette Recorder combo.) I can tell they are playing but just not showing up on the screen. I have the TV set to channel 3 and the DVD/VCR also to channel 3. I hope you can help me - I'm at my wits end. Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Try setting the TV to AV1 & see if the dvd picture appears.There should be a button on the remote to change TV/video. Hope this helps.

Hello, I bought an ONN TV #LE-22G90 a few months ago and I can't receive any digital channels. My time zone is: Eastern time (I live near Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada). The tuner mode is: Antenna. I...


I bought the same TV wich is in fact a Seiki TV, see the warranty paper. The television has digital and analog tuners so is able to receive digital channels.Our television receive signal thru a rabbit ear antenna and we had some trouble to scan all the digital channels. We had to change the orientation of the antenna to receive correctly the signals and we had to scan many times. We finally conected the TV to a roof antenna so we where able to scan all the channels of Montreal, north Vermont and north New York areas since we are living in the south shore in front of Montreal. After the scan was completed we conected back the TV to the rabbit ear antenna and the television is working correctly receiving all the stations of Montreal area with a very good picture quality.

Is my Hitachi 61uwx10b ultravision hd ready digital tv ready when they switch over to digital vrodacasting or will i need a converter box,


This TV will need a converter box. It was made in the days before the digital tuner was required on big TV sets.

Just remember the converter is only needed if you get off-the-air reception with an antenna for local channels. If you have cable or satellite and get your local channels that way, you don't have to do anything. The change to digital will not affect you.

If you are now using rabbit ears or an old worn-out outside antenna, you might think about upgrading your antenna when you get a converter box. Signal strength is very important with the new digital broadcasting. Too weak a signal means no picture at all or one that freezes up or turns blocky. The antenna that worked for analog may not be adequate for digital.

Tv set just lost its ability to display digital channels


Your problem is definitely the input signal source to your tv. It is extremely rare where a new tv has a tuner signal sensitivity problem. The best thing to do is to replace your current set of rabbit ears with a different set of powered rabbit ears that have a higher gain rating with a variable gain control. Please note that the gain control setting is critical when setting up your tuner for auto-programming. If the gain control is set too low or too high it will result in your symptom.

If you still can't get it to work you could try buying a line amplifier which you would install to the rabbit ears before the tv. If you still can't get it to work you'll have no choice but to purchase an outside antennae as a result of your being in a weak signal area as signal quality changes by such things as the switch over to digital upcoming and environmental changes.

Need to hook up dvd/vcr combo with converter box


Connect your rabbit ears to the Insignia. Connect the Insignia to the antenna input on the "cvd/vcr combo". Now turn on the television to show the "cvd/vcr combo".

The Insignia simply goes between your antenna and your television. In your case you also have a vcr so if you want the VCR to be able to play and record digital stations you will need the Insignia between the vcr and the antenna.

Record to vhs with converter box


I need to leave my TV on channel 3 and set the converter to the channel I want to record. When programming for future recording, it's always from channel 3, not the channel I want the converter displaying.

Rabbit ears,vcr,dvr,tv


Connect Rabbit ear antenna to VCR, Take Audio / Video Out and connect to DVR, and Audio / Video out of DVR to AV IN of TV. Start Tuning Channels using the Tuner of the VCR, and store them. Now, whenever you wish to record a particular Channel, select that channel on your VCR, and Record on your Blank DVD in the DVR.
