Question about Quasar VHQ401 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Quasar VHQ41M I purchased the VCR in 2001-02. It appears to be internally fixed on channel 3 and I need to use channel 4 for it to work on my TV. I searched for a button on the back andsides of rht VCR to see if there was a way I could switch the channel from 3 to 4, but there is none. I tried to manually change the VCR channel to 4, but it reverted back to 3. Can you give me any way of getting the channel to 4 so I can use it on my TV? Any assistance is most appreciated.

    I do not feel the my question was answered. I do not wantto disengage my dish connection to the TV every time I want to use the VCR. I am interested in knowing how to connect the VCR to the dish equipment so I can switch from TV to DVD to VCR.

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.

    In my solution, you will have not have any neccesity to 'disengage' your dish connection whenever you wish to view your DVD or VCR.
    It is a one time exercise - feed the signal from your dish directly to the Antenna socket of your TV (at the rear ofthe TV). Use AV inputs on the TV to connect to VCR and DVD. So whenever you desire to watch broadcast programs from the Dish Antenna, all you got to do is select 'TV' on the TV's remote and you will be able to recieve the Channels being recieved by the dish - DIRECTLY - on the TV. And when you wish to view your VCR, select 'video' on the TV's remote, and play the VCR, and you can watch the Tapes from the VCR. Input selection - TV program or VCR - is done through the Remote Control.

The remote model number for the Quasar VV2008 is VSQS1570 and can be ordered from Panasonic at 1-800-221-7262 or Go to a Family Dollar store and purchase the grey RCA universal remote for $6.00 about 6 inches in length. When you are ready to program it for the Quasar VV2008 push the code search button then the VCR button and enter 0162 then push enter. The red light should go off and the remote should turn the TV/VCR off and on. It worked for me 4/19/2013

Internally change channel 3 to 4 on 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.

Connecting older model quasar to dvd/vcr player (magnavox)

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
  • yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
  • red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;
  • modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
  • TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
  • if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Use of tv channel 3 or 4

You either have to choose either 3 or 4 or - instead of connecting to your TV through its tuner, go directly to the Audio/Video inputs using A/V cable (also known as RCA cable - probably has red, white, and yellow ends) Connect it from the color coded outputs on the VCR to the similar inputs on the TV. The TV may have several sets to choose from. Take you choice, but set the TV's input selector to this same designation when you want to watch the VCR. Sometimes its is called "VIDEO" sometimes A/V, sometimes "AUX"

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: 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).

VCR model VHQ 41m

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?

Quasar VV-2009

Here is the link to the manual if you need it; check page 26 item 4 - vcr lock - just a possibility this may solve the problem, long shot. Let us know which remote you have and we may be able to find out how to program it for your tv. page 37 gives you contact details if you want to buy the correct remote. I suspect that with the correct programming, your universal should work fine though. Hope this helps :)
