Connection problem with samsung dvd/vcr combo V2000 model.
Had to disconnect and now I can't figure out how to reconnect. I have cable box, and can't get video. Have audio, but don't know what I'm doing wrong. Did find manual online, but still having trouble with connection.

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.
Hard to believe you do not have any "F" connectors on the VCR/DVD. What brand is this? You should have inputs and outputs for separate composite and audio. Using phono cords with male ends you should be able to go to and from your television for recording and watching. It will mean alot of changing to go from one mode to the other but should be doable provided your tv has composite in/out. Your owners manual should show a diagram to hook the unit up this way. If you get stuck email me and I'll try to walk you through it. Give me as much info as you can on inputs and outputs. Let me know.
what is the problem not enough connection areas usually you would connect your VCR to your cable box and set channel three on your cable box for the VCR then using one of your other inputs from your TV for the dvd player . Is your DVD player HDMI or Componet?
I'm not sure if you can do this using the timer recording, BUT....if you use the AV plugs (the ones with the red, white and yellow plugs) to connect the VCR to the TV, you can tape what is actually on the TV at that time.....you are using the TV tuner and just taping that on the VCR. As I said, I'm not sure if this works with timer recordings.....maybe if you leave the TV set on the proper channel? Try it and see if it works.
The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.
With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.
yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook
to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax
connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones
are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or
cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR
output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)
