Picture going dark then brighter

I have an older Ge than this model however this one looked the closest. the DVD is hooked through the VCR and when played the picture gets dark for about 10 seconds then gets light and then back dark again. It continues in this cycle throughout the movie. This only happens when the movie is palyed not when you are in the menu screen.

Re: picture going dark then brighter

I had a similar problem on a different DVD player and found that if I plugged it into the TV the problem went away.

Re: picture going dark then brighter

This is due to the copy protection on the DVD that prevents perfect copies of DVD onto VHS. By hooking it up directly to the TV, of course it will go away because it's not going through a VCR.

I have a maganovox combo system, converter box, older model zenithe tv and rf modular. How do I connect all this to record and look at vcr on combo? I need step by step of hooking up all cords and plugs....

You dont need the rf modulator. Use a female to male rf, antenna cord and plug from the RF out on the back of your combo to the TV. Now you need to tune your TV on analogue mode until you find the dvd/vcr picture. Have the combo on when you're doing this.

I have my Samsung model dvd V9800 hooked up to my RCA RT2906. The dvd side is showing a picture but the video side is not. The RCA RT2906 has have a hook up for a vcr player by it's self but I do not think...

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.

We recently purchased a toshiba recorder/vcr combo d-vr610 and it plays dvd's with no problem but we tried to watch a video and we couldn't get a picture. I can't find the manual to see what I need to do....

The DVD will play through component, composite, or HDMI, but you have to hook the VCR up separately with component cables - look at the back of the combo, you'll see where it says "VCR". That's where the cables have to go. Pretty silly, but I had the same problem, and this is the only solution I could come up with.

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Fading dvd picture

DVDs are recorded in Macrovision* format which distorts the video when playing through a VCR. This is an anti recording device to prevent duplication. You can try finding a decoder that connects between the player and VCR to override this

How to hook up portable dvd player to watch on t.v.

You can use the VCRs video in and audio in to view the DVD player. The VCR will act as the RF modulator. You may have to select the TV/VCR button to select the input. (Sometimes line in or Below channel 2 is the L1 L2 input) The VCR has a built in RF modulator.
