Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Poor viewing with VCR

I have a one year old LG flat screen TV which we have a DVD/VCR combo and a Dishnetwork box hooked to. We cannot record to VHS because when we go to watch it the picture quality is jumpy. It also does this to VHS movies we purchased. We got a new combo player thinking it was the VCR but the new one does the same. I hooked the original VCR up to an old 13 inch TV and it worked perfect. Our Dishnetwork uses coaxial cables is this the problem or is because we have high def? Thanks

    We only have two co-axial cables hooked up to it, no RCA's. When I tried to hook up the new combo dvd/vcr I had to use a RF modulator because of the coaxial's and had the same exact problem. Thanks

    I tried this but used a S-video cable instead of RCA because LG's manual said it offers improved picture quality. There was no difference. I just tried taping from tv and watching it, and had a jumpy picture - then I took that vhs tape to another vcr and had perfect picture. I've gone through all of the settings on my tv remote and couldn't find any help there. It almost seems like I am being forced to consider getting DVR. Could my Dish connection affect video quality?

    well, thanks for trying. Hopefully I'll figure it out eventually.

How do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

    have you tried , hooking the dish output coax cable into vcr , then the vcr antenna output to tv , or with the rca jacks( out from dish into vcr combo then audio , video jacks to tv for better video and audio quality?

  • jason Jan 04, 2009

    also vcr/dvd combo's are sensitive to any other hook up besides directly to tv , the reason for this is to help the fight against copy right protection of dvd's

    hope my info is worth a fixya , and if you need any other assistance I'll be glad to help

    that rating means you no longer want my help , so good luck and thanks for using fixya

  • jason Jan 04, 2009

    well if you want there are a couple of other things to check and the s-video only works for the dvd player and not the vcr and also requires that you have the red and white stereo audio rca jacks to here the audio , but the s-video and or yellow video rca jack cannot be plugged in at the same time , therefore using just the yellow video jack and red and white stereo audio jacks will work on the tv for both the vcr and dvd , or just the coax antenna directly to tv

    try just the vcr combo coax output antenna connection directly to tv input ant.( no dish network connection ) no rf modulator

    or just the yellow video and two audio rca jacks

    let me know what happens

I have a Digistar flat screen TV mod # LC32U5D Was a demo in Walmart - came with no manual - Have a vhs/dvd combo unit hooked up to it with a 3wire set up - can watch TV no prob - can watch dvd or vhs no...

you have to send the video and audio from the tv set to the inputs on the VCR recorder (it should be labeled "IN" there will be one yellow, one white (or black) and one red connector. without these cables hooked up, your recorder has nothing to record from.

Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

I'm trying to get my dvd recorder and vcr hooked up to my new flat screen tv. How do I connect them and what channel do I put my tv on (flatscreens don't have channel 3 or 4) to recognize the dvd recorder...

DVD players do not connect using regular cable connections Your flat screen TV should have separate Audio and Video connections. These are the connections that you should use to connect your VCR and DVD player. If you have a combo unit, that is a single unit that has both DVD and VHS in one box, you might be able to get your VCR to work on the cable connection. However your DVD will not be able to work as the cable connection doesn't allow enough information to pass through. If you go to your local Audio Video store and tell them what you want to connect they should have the cables you need for less than $10.00. Good luck.

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?

Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo

A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
