Can't get my VCR to work

I have a GE TV Model 27GT618. I hooked a VCR - DVD to it but can't get the VCR-DVD to play. I think I have it hooked up right. I have an old GE and can't view dvd or games. Does the tv need to be on a specific channel?

It sounds like you need to purchase a converter box from a place like Radio Shack. This box converts the signal so that your televison understands. I think this box is around $20.00. Just call Radio Shack our a place like walmart and tell them what is going on and they will fix you up. Then you can use channels 3 or 4. I hope this helps!

I just bought a new atari flashback 2. I have a VCR/DVD hooked up to my TV.. Do I need to hook the atari up to the back of the VCR/DVD or can I plug it directly into my TV.. The TV is new. Problem is, I...


You should be able to plug the Atari directly into the TV (If you have proper inputs available on your TV (you have not told us what make & model your TV is). BUT you can hook it up through your DVD/VCR if you want to. If you hook your Atari to your DVD/VCR you will have to power up the DVD/VCR whenever you want to play your games. The cool thing about running it through your DVD/VCR is that you can record toy game to prove to your friends what you have achieved.

Hi,
VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output.
Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Can't get my VCR to work


FIRST!!! Make sure you have the coax or AV cables plugged into jacks marked out on the machine.....then....

*If you have it hooked up with a Coax cable, you should immediately have picture and sound when you turn it on. Make sure you have a dvd/vhs running and switch between channel 3 and 4. if this doesn't work, make sure that you have the cable connected to the one marked 'in' or 'cable in' or 'ant in'. then retry the previous steps.

*If you have it hooked up through A/V cables (Red/Yellow/White), make sure you have them all connected to the same set of jacks. They should be labeled Aux 1 or something similar and are generally surrounded by a box molded into the TV's plastic casing. You will then have to use the TV remote to switch TV/Video settings until you get to the one that matches the Aux jacks you have it plugged into. Again...make sure a dvd or vhs is running and keep flipping until you find a picture.

Hope this helps!!!

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck
