Question about Quasar VHQ401 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Internally change channel 3 to 4 on VCR

The closest model VCR I have is the one listed above. The model number on my VCR is VHQ41M. I purchased in 2001-02. In order to hook up to my TV, I need the VCR channel on 4, but my VCR is programmed for 3. I could not locate any buttons on the back or side to change it from 3 to 4. I tried to manually change the channel to 4, but the VCR reverted back to channel 3 and, thus, I cannot get it to play tapes on the TV. Is the VCR programmed internally somehow? And if so, is there any way to change it internally to channel 4? Can you assist in any way -- other than recommendng the purchase of another VCR?

Hi, In most VCRs, as you have posted, there is a switch at the back where you can select the output to either Ch 3 or 4. In some cases, the switch is deep inside and you have to remove a small squarish rubber covering to expose the hole. It is normally close to the antenna input/output. More often than not it is a simple sliding 2 position switch. You would need any tool that can reach and sturdy enough to slide the switch. Internally program output channel selector is very possible, I would guess that its selectable via the menu set-up tabs. A question pls, How did you "I tried to manually change the channel to 4, but the VCR reverted back to channel 3..." Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up or further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,
    If you can't still find the selector switch, maybe you need to open the VCR. If you are comfortable working with a screwdriver and work very carefully, then it is possible to do it yourself. Otherwise, you might be better off asking a qualified service professional.
    Should you venture opening the VCR, the switch should be located in a rectangular shiny block component towards the rear of the unit and possible interfaced with your antenna connector and your RF output connector (the one that goes to your TV). The RF modulator is roughly 1cm thick by 2-3cm high and 4-5cm wide. only 1 connector with 4-5 wires is attached. You have to poke around that RF block to locate and move the switch.

    and Hello again,
    It may also be possible that you have a European/Middle East version that uses UHF and not Ch 3 or 4, just a thought
    Cheers

I moved and cant figure out how to hook my 4030 channel master antenna up again. I have a converter box and hd toshiba tv


INSTALLATION

Channel Master by PCT indoor antennas are designed to provide optimum reception of

UHF / VHF and FM signals. These antennas have 75 ohm outputs, which allow simple,

hassle-free connections to today's newer TV sets that have 75 ohm F type connector

inputs.

Simply attach one end of the supplied 6' cable with F connectors to the output of the

antenna (Fig.1). Attach the other end of the cable to the input of the TV set or VCR

(Fig. 2). Some adjustment of the antenna might be necessary for optimum viewing.

Model CM-4030 includes a built-in amplifier and separate power supply.

1. Follow the same steps as above for antenna to TV / VCR hookup. Note : Model

CM-4030 also allows for two set / VCR hookups with its unique dual output feature.

2. Insert the power injector into the back of the antenna (Fig. 3). Plug in the power
transformer to the closest electrical outlet (Fig. 4).


Google 4030 Channel Master Instruction Sheet for the PDF File with the diagram.

I purchased a GE Universal remote and I do not know the code to set up for MV20FM4. Please help.


HelloHello
You haven't given the model number of GE remote you have purchased. Yet I hereby give you some universal remote codes for Toshiba TV/VCR combo. Try with these. If you fails to synchronise with; inform me the model number of your GE Universal remote:
Four digit codes for Toshiba TV/VCR combo are: 0260 0358
Three digit codes for Toshiba are: 013/ 049/ 089/ 105/ 109/ 117/ 118/ 120/ 159/ 178
Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
Code Search If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.
OK. Thanks for using Fixya.

I'm not positive but these codes should work, if not try the CODE SEARCH function. I'll post the Code Search instructions first, then I'll post the Brand Codes (list is a bit long so it might take a couple of posts). Let me know if any of this helps you and I'll continue to search for a pdf type of code list for the mru3300 for you.
*CODE SEARCH
If your product does not respond after you have tried all

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be

2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button until the

Hello I have a philips universal remote, don't know what model it is I thought all Universal remotes was one Model. Last night I tried using it for my TV to swich from TV to DVD and it just stopped...


Great News!! We can program most Philips Universal Remotes with Automatic Code Searh. Here's how it works on most of our remotes.

Programming with Code Search

1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.

3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.

4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

The above assumes that you want to store the VCR you want under the VCR but, Cable codes under the CBL, etc

Note: if the device does not have a chat channel at a button, you should Play (VCR only) or Power instead.

Here is a Code List on PDF that shoud be universal for most remotes. It worked for me.

Hope this helps you out, good luck.

Vcr does not run


Try changing the channels on the VCR itself. If you can do that, then it would indicate a problem with the VCR's remote. If you are still unable to change channels on the VCR manually, it could indicate a circuitry problem, for which you will have to get the VCR serviced.

Quasar VCRs at least used to be manufactured by Panasonic. I googled for a cross reference (Quasar model to identical Panasonic) but didn't come up with what looks like a quick cross. I'd go to Panasonic's site and look: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Video/VCRs/VCRs.list.75431 Did you also get the matching remote? If so, advanced setup should be easy. If not, obtain a remote with the needed capabilities, as advanced functions cannot be done with the VCR located buttons (most late VCRs anyway).

I am not conversant with VCRs sold in the United states, but - a VCR is a VCR is a VCR. So, can i suggest an alternate solution to your problem? Why not use the AV out sockets of your VCR and hook them to the AV IN sockets of your TV? In this manner, you you also get a better image. And of course, you feed In the signal source (Antenna, cable Box, etc) directly to the TV, and use your remote to switch to AV mode whenever you desire to watch movies or Tape.

I have not heard of one that doesn't have the selector switch to change to 3 or 4, Could it perhaps be in the front behind a door or just somewhere else?
