Re: works but no pic
It sounds like you video processor has malfunctioned, due to a voltage surge. When your power went out and came back on that caused a voltage surge which may have destroyed the video processor, or its associative circuitry. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair technician look at your device and give you an estimate on the repair cost.

ACCORDING TO THE TECH AT TOSHIBA: THE UNIT MUST BE CONNECTED TO THE TV BY AN HDMI CABLE FOR THE DVD PART & (ON THE BACK-RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE COMBO) YOU NEED TO CONNECT A SET OF THE RED/WHITE/YELLOW CABLES FROM (VIDEO) "OUT" OF THE COMBO & "IN" TO THE RED/WHITE/YELLOW TV(AV-1) PORTS FOR THE VCR PART TO WORK.
If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.
ok so what you need to do is put the cable from your cable provider/ antenna (or what ever you use)to the combo players CABLE IN connection.. then color match of the red yellow and white cables from the OUT on the combo to the IN on the TV your tv has to be set on AUX sometimes called L1 or L2 depending on your tv and which set of red yellow and white holes on the tv you use... your combo will also probably need to be turned on.. try that should work!
Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.
I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.
But the VCR part didn't work. At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"
I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.
I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.
I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed. The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.
I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.
It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.
See if this works for you. My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter. Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off. You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
first you do connect cable to your > combo VCR / DVD player & recorder then connect to > to your TV: cable coax output or if that cable have video/audio ouput is going to INPUT >to combo VCR / DVD player video / audio output is going to INPUT > to TV,.that's the time you can record and playback; click below for more information in hooking up:
