Question about Panasonic Omnivision PV-7401 4 Head VHS VCR Video Cassette recorder w/ Remote

1 Answer

Having trouble hooking old VCR up to new LG TV and Integra Receiver. Feel like I'm missing a step...

I've used a mono to stereo adaptor on the VCR, then have the yellow, red and white cables going directly to the LG LED LCD TV, using the provided composite cable coupler. Nothing from the VCR is connected directly to the Integra receiver. When I play a VHS, the TV says there is no signal. I don't get audio or video. Am I missing a step? The TV is connected to the receiver with HDMI, as is the blue ray, which both work great.

Look at the back of the tv. What is it labeled at where you plugged the VCR into. Should probably say composite in. After that's verified, go into the tv menu and make sure you have selected composite input. Should be no need for any settings on VCR, it has to be settings on tv

    Yes, it's the composite in, and I did select the composite input on the TV. very odd. oh and by the way, I'm only interested in playback of tapes.

    an alternative way to fix thid problem is goto walmart or any electronics store and purchase a RF modulator. connect the vcr & tv to it and it will switch the tv over to vcr viewing once vcr is turned on. walmart sells one for around $9-$20

Can I hook up my roku device to this tv If so what kind of cable do I need?


On the back of the TV/VCR unit there is an input for audio & video plugs. These will accept a composite video signal and mono audio signal. I'm not sure if newer roku has these outputs as they are low def only signals. The roku would need to have have red, white & yellow sockets. (Old Roku's had these....) Yellow is video, red and white are L & R audio. Use a y adapter to merge red & white together, and use a standard RCA patch cord to connect the roku composite outputs to the TV VCR inputs.

I'm trying to hook up a Carver HR-752 to Bose 901's series VI, I would like to use the preamp out and in on the back, do I need a seperate amp to use these? I have them going through the Tape


To setup the Bose 901's so that all of your connected equipment's sound (cable/dvd/games/stereo/etc) comes out of the 901's.
If you already have a receiver with front left and right pre-outs, I would add an amplifier. (other option is a pre-amp) Use the amplifier to create the loop the 901's need w/ their EQ and it will also add a cleaner sound and added power. That's how you can really make the Bose 901's sound amazing.

You should probably find a relative or a kid down the street to hook it up for you. Or you can pay for a profesional installer which I do not recommend.

Having trouble hooking up vcr


I've never seen a VCR use anything other than Composite, S-video or RF analog outputs. That's because VHS uses the NTSC or PAL analog video standards. (In the US, it is NTSC; in Europe PAL is the old standard.)

To use the Composite output, get a triple RCA cable (red, white and yellow connectors). Connect one end of the cable to Video Out (yellow), Audio Out right (red) and Audio Out (white) on the VCR. The other end of the cable goes to the corresponding Composite Video In jack and the adjacent Audio In jacks on the TV. If you are using S-video, (both units must have S-video jacks), the S-video cable replaces the Composite section of the triple cable, so you only need an audio patch cable (two RCA plugs on each end). Be sure to use the audio input corresponding to the S-video input. Note: S-video is generally better quality than composite, although HD digital is still superior.

If you wish to record from the TV, the TV must have a composite video or S-video output. This is not very common. If you wish to record programs from an RF source (cable or antenna), see the next paragraph.

In the days before digital, a typical connection scheme was to run the cable or antenna RF source to the ANT IN coax connector on the VCR, then run a short coax cable from ANT OUT to ANT IN on the back of the TV. This may not work with a digital source. Pre-HD VCR tuners would not be HD compatible, and may even filter out the digital signal in bypass mode (VCR off). You would need an HD to analog converter box at the VCR input to retain this setup. I have no information on your TV's support for NTSC video through the tuner (especially since you did not mention the model : /).

Using the red whit and yellow VCR cables, how do i


You must have a monaural (mono) TV even though it looks like you have speakers on each side. The VCR has stereo audio output red=right white=left yellow=video. Ideally you would buy a mixing tee to add the left and right signal. Or if your VCR supports it you can set it to mono output. Otherwise, just use the white (left) cable to feed the mono input (white) and of course the yellow to yellow for video. Just ignore the red wire or lightly tape over it to avoid any short. Best,

What is sap and how do you turn it off


SAP is an alternate audio program usually seen in markets with different languages. The most common is for a Spanish broadcast of an English program. It is also used to provide audio descriptions of programming for the blind. There should be a menu option under Audio to turn this on and off.

I CANNOT GET MY OLDER VCR TO WORK WITH NEWER EQUIPMENT.


The VCR is straight analog/composite and if you are trying to get it to show up on the TV via the HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV it is probably not going to work correctly until you add a dedicated pair of audio connection from the receiver to the TV...

Trying to hook new amp to old jukebox??? 1963 Rockola


Hi Randy,

I take it that the output from the jukebox is mono (only a signal and screen cable) and the connection to the amplifier is a phono plug. You could make up a cable by using a phono inline socket and two phono plugs. I would think that you could purchase one from your local electronic store. If you make one up it should be made using a screened cable.

Hooking up a d.v.d player to a vcr/tv combo?


RCA plugs (the yellow, red, and white outlets you speak of) consist of a video plug (yellow) and stereo plugs for audio (red and white). Just match the colors from the DVD RCA colors to the RCA hook-ups on the TV (ex. Yellow the Yellow, White to White).

You don't need to worry about the red one, it just makes the DVD player play stereo audio. Instead, you'll have mono, which is fine, and most modern players can detect mono and switch it for you so don't worry about changing settings and what not (unless you're missing sound on one side.)

Getting Surround to work


The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!
