Question about Sanyo Televison & Video

8 Answers

I have a Sanyo DVD/VCR connected to an old Toshiba TV via S Video cable plus R/L audio cables. I have checked the connections and they are correct. I have the TV on a swing-away wall-mount shelf and the DVD/VCR is on a shelf suspended below the TV shelf. Before I made this installation, there was no problem with this connection. The problem occurs only when I turn the DVD/VCR on...the problem is interference.

    I have not received a response...only a question. Is an answer forthcoming? I know of nothing to add to further describe the problem, or setup.

  • bobsp100 Feb 07, 2009

    Please read my description of the problem...TV recption is poor (poor quality picture) when I turn the DVD/VCR on. All connections are correct. The TV is a Toshiba Model CF2750K. There is no Menu option on the remote.

  • bobsp100 Feb 07, 2009

    Poor TV reception when DVD/VCR is turned on. See my original posting 2/7/09.

  • bobsp100 Feb 07, 2009

    Cable is connected to DVD/VCR, then to TV. No problem there. No problem with TV reception until DVD/VCR is turned on. These two componeents were connected previously in another room without the shelf(s).

  • bobsp100 Feb 07, 2009

    This is the setup:

    A cable comes out of the wall. Service provided by Charter Cable. The cable enters the DVD/VCR via Cable-In. Another cable is connect from the DVD/VCR Cable-out to the TV Cable-in. See original posting for further description of setup. There are no additional peripherals attached to either the TV or DVD/VCR.

  • bobsp100 Feb 07, 2009

    Same Sanyo DVD/VCR.

    I was able to fix that problem, but now, when I try to play a DVD, I get a split screen with the video on both sides of the screen...no problem with picture, but two images, alike, on the screen is not good. VCR works fine. If this is a new post, calling for additional $9.99, pleas let me know and I will pay two times $9.99, otherwise 1 time $9.99.

    Thanks, Bob Sparks

VCR unit is too close to TV. Try to connect it using regular video in/out or antenna in/out. Also try to move VCR aside to see if it will change something.
Good Luck

Hi... the problem might be due to unwanted signals from any of the electrical appliances located nearby ur television and dvd player..Like cordless phone or chargers that may cause damage to receive signals to ur tv... so its better keep ur tv and dvd/vcr set away from ur electrical appliances

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described interference is produced by the Sanyo DVD/VCR. While it is powered ON, it is also transmitting on a specific Channel (3 or 4) even if you are utilizing the S-Video and analog L + R audio only. This then interferes with your regular cable/TV reception. Workaround is to power the Sanyo OFF or on its control, select VTR or VCR OFF.

Would appreciate an update. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I need more information...is there antenna/satellite/cable connected to the tv and how is it connected, where are the receivers located or just the dvd/vcr connected to the tv

Posted on Feb 07, 2009

  • clarkco2002 Feb 07, 2009

    connect the cable directly to the tv., not the dvd. tv will work normaly.
    in order to watch a dvd/vcr you will need to use the tv remote (or tv buttons) to switch to s-video input.

    don't discount this solution untill you have attempted it.

    let me know what happens

As long as the VCR is connected from its AV1 scart socket to AV2 on the TV with a fully-wired scart lead and you select this AV2 input with the TVs remote you should be getting the VCR signal.
There is one other setting on this Toshiba model that needs to be done...once the VCR picture is displayed, pick up the TV remote and press MENU, then PICTURE menu, then go down below the last item and select VCR MODE. Set this to ON and STORE. This will correct any shaking of the picture.

How to hookup Sanyo DVW-6100 to a Sylvania tv


If the Sylvania tv is a CRT (old style tube tv) you can just use an RCA cable and hook it into the composite video. It will be the cable that has a red, white and yellow connectors on it. The yellow is the video, the red is the right audio and the white is the left audio. Connect ones side of this cable to the output of the DVD/TAPE player and to the input on the TV side.

How do I connect the wireing


The VCR portion is connected to yhe TV via yellow-end cable(video) from "video out" to TVs "video in" and red and white-end cables(audio) from "audio out" to TVs "audio in". The DVD plays via HDMI cable from "HDMI out" to TVs HDMI in. S-video cable can be used if no HDMI terminal is available on TV. External tuner in (cable TV, Satellite) is connected to the video and audio in terminals or better yet if S-video out is available on the tuner box.

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern


The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.

No audio when using VCR/DVD player


the first thing that you need to do is use the video cables and audio cables that are on the back of the unit. This makes sure that you have sound and video.

Connecting VCR to TV


Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

Sanyo TV


Hi,

If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).

Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.

If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.

The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.

Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.

Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
