All cabels are connected and the whole thing is not working and yes de normal channels do work but not the videotapes. - The TV works normal; - The TV works normal with the DVD player - The VCR should be allright, although I haven't used it in three years; - The videotapes should be all right. I tried several tapes without getting an image.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If I understand your concern right, it is that you can not watch the videotapes when played on the Philips VR151. Everything else works as expected (Cable TV & DVD). It would all depend on how the Philips VR151 is connected to your Grundig ST 55-800 NIC/TOP TV. Possible connections are:

  • SCART - set the source selector of the Grundig ST 55-800 NIC/TOP TV to SCART;
I have a Grundig ST - 0fffd8e.jpg
  • RF/coaxial cable - the TV must be tuned to UHF regular broadcast channel and not Cable. The default is Channel 36 UHF. there is also an adjustment at the rear of the Philips VR151 to fine tune

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    and then of course, a few other requirements since it has not been used for some time:


    • clean the video head with a VHS head cleaner;



    • exercise the VHS tapes using a rewinder/forwarder.

    Cheers.

We have a Philips DVD Recorder a Freeserve Digital box and a TV. Since adding the DVD Recorder we cannot tune in Freeserve at all and DVD's play only in black and white. Help Please. ...


Hi Jack,

And if you remove the DVD Recorder, everything is back to normal?

Initially, I would suspect that your DVD is set to PAL system and not to NTSC (or could be the other way around). Could you pls post back with the exact model number of the Philips DVD Recorder?

Additionally, could you pls detail how the Freeserve Digital box is connected to the Philips DVD Recorder and then to the TV? Pls indicate if you are using Video IN/OUT, S-Video, HDMI, SCART, RF IN/OUT.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Picture shrinks to only show top half


This is a common problem on certain models of Philips Magnavox TV sets. The most common symptom is the screen will shrink and expand over and over. After the TV heats up for a while the video will work like normal. After a few weeks or months your TV will eventually stop working and not have video. You can get complete parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

you really cant convert to component. it defeats the whole purpose of upgrading your tv. with your tv you should be using hdmi to connect all your devices your cable box should deffinatly have one. any time you connect component to something else you will get black and white hdmi is totally digital where as component is still analog pluse you dont need audio cables with hdmi its just one digital cable
