Check the usual suspects, like unit is plugged in and gets power, etc.

The first thing is to try resetting the player. While it's plugged in and powered on, press and hold the FF and RW buttons together. This resets the player back to factory defaults.

Now you can go ahead and hook up to the TV. You didn't mention what type of connection you're using but make sure you're using cables you have verified to be working. Start with composite and work your way up through S-Video, Component, and then HDMI. These connections should all be made directly from the player to the TV. Make sure the TV is changed to the correct input and only hook up one connection type at a time.

Resetting the player should undo any setting changes or lockups you may have experienced and testing the video outputs one by one should tell you the rest. If none of the outputs work hooked directly to the TV then the player is probably broken and will need service.

Good luck!

    Sorry, forgot to mention on the reset that you should be pressing the buttons on the player and not the remote.

How do I copy(to DVD) my SVHS tapes using my JVC MV-40


It all depends on what kind of connections you are using. In most cases you set the dvd recorder to input 1. Then use the yellow,red & black or white out puts from the vhs player to hook up to the number 1 input on the dvd recorder. hit play on the vhs & record on the dvd recorder at the same time. Do not forget to put a blank dvd in the dvd recorder? also for the best copy set your dvd recorder to XP for a 1 hour recording for a 1 hour or longer recording set the dvd recorder speed to SP. You should have the dvd recorder hooked up to a Tv so you can monitor the recording progress. This should work out as long as the recording you are copying is not copy protected. Good luck.

My Samsung DVD/VHS recorder the DVD won't close after playing DVD


Never force it, just use the remote.
If it won't stay in, unplug the unit and wait a while.
I think we get viruses from the TV signal which might be temporary (hopefully).

Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful....and free. thanks. Joe

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.

VHS to DVD


You would need a tv tuner on your pc's graphics card, then you could hook up the vcr with an adapter and record the vhs to your pc, then you would have to burn that to dvd. I don't think you can go directly from vhs to dvd, without an actual device (where there are those that do that.) ADS Tech's $100 DVD Xpress DX2. The DX2 has a video converter that can accept composite or S-Video signals. It converts these to digital format and sends them to a PC via a USB connection. It comes with Ulead VideoStudio 9 SE DVD software for editing the video.

Good luck!

Interface error! Trun off the power


Okay...sounds like you have a lot of signal splitting as well as devices that may also weaken your signal. With digital cable, you won't see snow or what would be a dead give-away to a weak signal. Only analog signals do that. Digital signals give you crisp clear picture or they drop out.

Try taking the cable directly from the wall to the DVD-Recorder. If you are able to watch channels and manipulate the device, then you can start from there as the source is good and the recorder is good.

Try to place the DVD-Recorder after the first splitter and see if you still receive stable signal. You'll probably need to leave the unit in this part of your A/V chain.

It really sounds like you need a signal amplifier for all the splitting you've done, or to re-work your A/V stack into something more manageable. It is entirely possible that the built-in tuner of the new DVD-Recorder is not as sensitive as the old unit.
