Question about Philips VR540 VHS VCR

Open Question

Philips VR840 Video Cassette Player

Sorry to be a nerd, but having disconnected the player and re-connected it with a new TV & DVD player, we can't get the clock to switch back on.

Having lost the manual, put new batteries in the handset, we still can't seem to find the "clock". (screen shows: --/--)

Ideas would be appreciated - thanks for being so understanding! GP

the blue is usually the video, chances are you have no channels tuned into it or its on an av channel. anyway put a tape in and press play.(assuming you have av1 connected to tv by scart lead) failing that try wriggling the scat in the back of the vcr while on play---failing that tune it to an analogue station on the tv via the ariel (rf) leads

Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

This unit does not have a tuner to receive TV broadcasting. If you have the owners manual on page 26 it explains this. If you do not have the manual here is a link to one.

you can buy scart splitters to give you extra scart sockets and leave the cables plugged in or if you have 3 phono connecters (red/white/yellow) on the side or front, connect to that.

Hi dennis176,

Unfortunately, I am not aware of this kind of setup. This kind of solution would not be very efficient. For this to work there would need to be an insert to the VCR (similar to that which is used in a cassette player to convert CD audio) attached to a DVD player. Because you would require a device to play the DVD and send the video/audio to the insert (if it existed) it would actually be more efficient to simply connect the DVD player to the television. The reason inserts exist for cassette players is primarily that it prevents replacement of an entire car stereo system. This is not the case with a VCR. You may consider purchasing a DVD/VCR combo if you wish to maintain the ability to play VHS tapes. If you own a TV/VCR combo, your least expensive option would likely be to purchase a separate DVD player.

Thank you,
Jason,

VCR, DVD, TV Connection


first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

Recording Problems


Hi.

Yes.
Most tv sets with freeview built in do not allow you to record it.
Check your tv instruction manual to see if it is at all possible.

DVD Player/Video Cassette Recorder


Hi It sounds like possibly there is stray RF getting into your video signal from your DVD/VCR combo to your tv. Check that your cables are ok, but also, if you can, try moving the unit in relation to the tv, if it is underneath, try putting it on top or beside the tv, I've seen the effect you describe be cause by lack of sheilding in both the tv and DVD/VCR, and moving the unit could cure it. Good Luck!
