Are you using an AV cord between your VCR and TV or a standard coax? If you are using a standard coax then first make sure the tape is functioning properly. Next try a new coax and if the problem persist there might be an issue with the coax output/input on the VCR or TV itself.
If you are using the AV inputs (red,white and yellow) you want to remember that the red and white are for audio and the yellow is for video. So in this case you want to
Make sure the tape is functioning correct. Old tapes that have seen their better days will produce audio but no video and vice versa.
Check the connection of your yellow AV input (audio). Make sure it goes from the same output on your VCR to the same input on your TV as the audio cords are running to.
If this checks out then try a different audio cord and see if this fixes it.
If not then try using a different output on the VCR and input on the TV all together.
At this point it is possible one of the AV audio jacks are bad either on the VCR or on the TV.
I assume you mean that there are no composite or component inputs on the TV. If it has a coax (antenna) input, you will need an RF modulator. These convert video inputs and output the signal via a coaxial cable.
This type of converter can be found in some stores that sell electronics equipment and online.
ANT. passthrough for an ant. connected to your 625 receiver will only work on tv 1. The only way to do this is to RF modulate your tv 2 coax to an RCA and hook the RcA cable to your tv2. then use another ant. to connect coax allowing you to pick up dish programing on an input and then going to the channels to enjoy local over the air programming.
RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) from nearby electrical/ electronic device.
Antenna misaligned to transmitter.
Antenna coax impedance mismatch.
If the OLD TV worked OK on same antenna it sounds like TV tuning or ANT socket/wiring loose.
Auto-tune TV with ant plugged in.
Get TVF (TV fundi) or friend to help align antenna.
Maybe a large bird sat on it.
Check coax for sunburn / deterioration. Renew if XX.
Offhand, the easiest connection method would be to use a short RF patchcord to connect the RF out of the DVD/VCR to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the TV. Set the TV to Channel 3. To continue able to receive ant/cable channels, the cable input should go to the ANT/CABLE/RF IN of the VCR/DVD.
Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
Initially, it would appear that the only INPUT possible is through the RF connector. Should this be the case, a workaround would be to connect the RF OUT of a VCR to this RF/ANT/Cable IN of the TV, set the TV to Channel 3. An RG59 patch cable would do the job. Should you want to connect a DVD, connect the Video/Audio OUTPUT of the DVD to the Video/Audio INPUT of the VCR. Incidentally, the regular cable/ant should be connected to the RF IN of the VCR.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
For the DVD portion, you need to use either composite, component, or possibly S-Video or HDMI. DVD players do not utilize coax, since they do not incorporate tuners. However, since you have indicated it is also a VCR, it should have a coax input/output for that. perhaps it is a player only and doesn't have a tuner? But I have never heard of this in a combination unit. At any rate, if it truly does not have a coax input, then you will have to leave the coax connected directly to your TV and use the above mentioned connections between the home theater, TV, and DVD/VCR unit. Audio between the DVD/VCR and home theatre, and video between the DVD/VCR and TV
The easiest way to connect the unit is via coax. You can come out of your satellite receiver via the "Out to TV" on the back of the receiver to the "In from Ant" on your DVD/VCR combo. You can then connect another coax from the "Out to TV" on the DVD/VCR combo to the "Ant/Cable" input on the back of you TV. Make sure the satellite receiver and the vcr are both modulated to the same channel, normally channel 3.
This problem has been around for some time when connecting a DVD player to an older tv, and now has become a problem with newer VCR's. You must purchase a device called an RF Modulator which will allow you to connect to the older tv. We sell them at our shop for $30.00 but I have seen them quite often for $65.00 and up...so it pays to shop around.
