No color and sporatic play on VCR mode, with zv420mw8

I have a Samsung series 400 tv and a Magnavox zv420mw8 player. The TV works great, DVD's work great but when I play my VHS tapes I get a B&W picture and the picture keeps coming in and out in a circular fashion. How do I get the VCR straighten out?

If this problem happened within a few seconds, you probably have dirty heads. If It happened slowly you could have an alignment problem. Both of these problems should be repair professionally.

T.V. shuts off when I try to play a DVD in the built-in player


Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.

This recorder only records inline. This means that there is no channel on recorder. It records whatever your satellite or cable box is showing. You'll have to change the channel on that.

I don't know that this will work for timed recording. You'll have to make sure that your cable/satellite is on and set to the proper channel before you leave. This wont work if you're recording multiple shows on different channels while you're gone. In that case you may need a different recorder.
