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.

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.
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!
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.
What you will need is an RF modulator. They are relatively inexpensive and can be found at local electronic stores. The following link will provide you with a background on the device and how it functions and connects.http://hometheater.about.com/cs/dvdlaserdisc/a/aadvdrfmoda.htm I hope this has been helpful and thank you for using Fix Ya.

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
Are you really sure , your set has video? How dark is it ? As if really nothing visible? Am, sure you can hear sounds. You can adjust the brightness + button to increase the brightness. But if nothing happens , you have problem with your TV set. The problem might be in the Video section. Please let an expert technician to check it. Please don't do it by yourself, it's risky.
Please send feedback whatever comes up. So we can help you further in the future.
You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input.
The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially.
Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.
