Question about Goldstar GVR-E435 VHS VCR

Vcr to tv connection

I have a sony KV-20m42 tv and a gold starGVR-e435 vcr. I use an indoor antenna which is a vhf uhf hd fm antenna. I cannot figure out to make the right connection from the vcr to the tv. I have tried everything. I can get the power to come on the vcr but it won't play a tape. I can't even get the menu to come up. When it did come up and I programmed it to record at a certain time, the power came on and the lights came on to say it was recording and about 15 seconds later it stopped recording. I can't even get the tv to pick up hft tv channels. Is there some magic trick that I am missing. I have searched and searched the internet for the correcto way to connect the antenna to the tv and vcr and the correct way to program it all but all I can get is the vhf channels on the tv. Thank you

Re: vcr to tv connection

There are probably a couple of different ways to hook things up. One is you hook the VCR "in between" the indoor antenna & the set. Hook antenna to VCR RF/Ant In, then VCR RF/Ant out to the Antenna input on TV. Your VCR will then be able to record one channel, while you watch another on TV. To play back the VCR, or do any VCR setup, TV channel must be set to either channel 3 or 4. The other way is to use the Video & audio input/outputs on the VCR & TV. You will need the appropriate cable(s). Match the VCR video/audio outs with the set of inputs on TV. Video and audio out on the TV go back to the video/audio inputs on VCR. In order to view VCR playback, menu setup, you will need to select that input (line, aux, video 1 etc.) on the TV. This hookup probably won't allow the recording of a second channel while watching one. As regards the hft channels, I assume you live in an area where such is being broadcast. The TV can probably be put into a programming mode where it will scan for all available channels, and put them into memory, or they can be programmed manually.

I want to record a TV program and can't figure out how to do it. I have a Fisher HVD-805 model VCR player and a Sylvania HD TV. I have checked the plugs, cables etc and they are ok.

You must also connect antenna/cable to your VCR antenna/cable input, and then tune the desired channel at VCR and start recording, if your TV has video and audio outputs you can use them too, just connect them to line inputs of VCR, select them and start recording, this is more convenient when your VCR has only VHF/UHF but no cable channels tuner.

How to connect flat screen t.v to vcr

Easiest way is to connect the TV & VCR using a Scart connector. The VCR should automatically switch over when play is selected. To go over to the VCR channel then select AV1 on the TV input select. ( This may be named different depending what make of TV you have eg. AUX 1)

Make sure your VCR is on channel 3 or try channel 4. Also, make sure your VCR is set to VIDEO or VCR and not TV. 
A better way to do this is to connect the cable box to the VCR using the composite cable (yellow/red/white) cable. Then, connecting the cable box to your TV with component cable (red/greenblue) cables. This will only work if your TV has component in. If not, then connect the VCR out composite (yellow/red/white) to the TV. Or use the coax cable from the cable box labeled TV/VCR right to your TV. Make sure your VCR is set on LINE1 or LINE.

Orion model vpdc connection problem

Most, if not all, TV sets which have a tuner section (will tune in individual channels either off an antenna, cable system etc.) should be UHF capable. UHF channels are approximately channels 14 - 83 of the standard broadcast spectrum, unless this has now changed with HDTV or other RF spectrum changes by the FCC. These channels are not the same as the cable channels, for which the mode of the TV set must be set.

Anyway, you will connect the VCR to the RF input of the TV, and set the TV for non-cable mode (broadcast). You will likely need to set the TV for a particular channel which matches what the VCR sends the signal out on.

I assume also the VCR doesn't have composite video out & audio out jacks on it? If it does, these hookups can be made to matching connections on the TV.

Hope this helps.
