My VCR/dvd player is hooked up to my tv...however, I always have to have my tv on Video 1 to view my VCR...any way I can by-pass the Video 1?? please and thank you..MG


If your VCR and TV has scart sockets then by connecting a fully wired scart lead between the two it will change to the AV channel of the TV. Pressing play on the vcr should also cause the tv to switch without pressing any button on the TV remote.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?


Hello,
The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

Cannot get channels with remote stuck on AV2/3/4/5/6


The TV button on the remote is to select TV mode for the controller. STB, VCR & DVD do the same for their respective devices.

The A/V should select the external inputs by itself. If not try each of the Panasonic codes in turn:

0011, 0021, 0027,0029,0039,0072, 0102

Enter the codes as follows:

Press and hold TV for 3 seconds until the TV key flashes and then stays on.

Enter one of the codes (above)

TV key should flash twice. (if not go back to the beginning)

Try pressing the buttons on the controller. If all the functions do not work, try the next code.

There appears to be no 'menu' button on the remote


First make sure the cables are truly in the right places. The antenna or cable goes to the VCR's antenna input connector, and there should be a cable from the output connector to the TV's antenna input. Sometimes people get the input and output cables reversed.

The VCR's output to the TV will either be on channel 3 or 4. Those are the only choices, so you should be getting the signal on one of them. On some Sanyo models there is a switch on the back near the "out to TV" connector to select the channel. On others you need the remote to select through the VCR setup menu. Check the remote for a button labeled "TV/VCR" and press that while a tape is playing. That button controls whether the signal from the VCR goes to the TV, or if it just passes the antenna signal through to the TV. Try both channels 3 and 4 on the TV.

If you are never able to get a picture from the VCR on either channel, its RF output section may be bad. This can happen. You can get around this if your TV has a/v inputs available. Connect the red and white audio (red is right channel and white is the left) output jacks and yellow video output jack on the VCR to the corresponding inputs on the TV. Then switch the TV to the a/v input to watch the VCR.

Need to retune Sanyo VCR VHR-610.


On the Sanyo VHR-610 you start the TV auto tune by holding down both the CHANNEL ( +, - ) buttons on the VCR simultaneously for more than 2 seconds.
The TV stations in your area will be automatically preset in order starting from programme position number "01"

When all available stations have been preset, the function will stop and the TV station preset to programme position number "01" will be tuned on your TV screen.

In other words after holding down the two buttons, leave it alone for awhile (takes some time) till it ends back at 01.

Cheers

RE; Remote control TV/AV button doesn't work LXI series


Hi, Based on your post/description: 1. the TV is stuck to A/V; 2. you have two video sources - VHS & DVD (assuming both are external and both have A/V outputs with the VCR also with inputs); 3. you want to use either VHS & DVD, one at a time. You can do it the old fashion way, remove yellow, red, white RCA connectors from DVD and plug them at the outputs of the VHS when you want to use the VCR; or Connect the A/V outputs of the DVD to the inputs of the VCR, connect the outputs of the VCR to the A/V inputs of the LXI TV. Hopes this give you an idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
