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.

Re: Quasar VHQ41M

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 Dish network. I want to record TV onto the VCR, but cannot get channels to record. i can playback videotapes and the record works, but cannot figure out how to get the signal to record.

The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR.
The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV.
The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.

It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input.
& VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.

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.

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?
