Re: No VCR picture

Nip to the website and ask them as you don't give much detail on connection side some use rca connection others use scart connection and others go through rf leads to tv. on samsung always try manufactures webpages before coming here some solutions we find are posted on the company who built the pruduct others are from experiance from having product itself. sorry for not helping on this one it may be the vcr out picture tuner has gone may be another factor.

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...

Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

I have a surround sound Zenith model # ZHX313 (vcr,dvd and turner). I turned on the progressive scanner while in menu but now I can't turn it off. I've tried unplugging and also tried holding down the stop...

Hi there,

It's unlikely that you've broken it - you appear to be using the wrong method for switching it off.

Correct instructions for turning Progressive (P) Scan off:

1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray.
2. Wait for the "NO DISC" message to appear on the display
3. Press and hold the "STOP" button on the front of the unit for at least 5 seconds then release.

The video output should return to the normal setting and "P/SCAN" should disappear from the display on the front of the player.

If you are still unable to switch P/SCAN off, please post back for further assistance.

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo

With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

I had the same problem, so I took it back to basics. Hooked cable into VCR/DVD player and another cable from player to TV. S cable too, plus red/white audio. Plays DVDs on AV1 and VHS on Channel 3 on TV setting.

When I press the TV/VCR button on the remote, the picture on the TV becomes fuzzy and we see no signal from the DVD player. The first sign we were having trouble was that we couldn't set the time...

The TV/VCR button is usually not a function of a DVD player itself.

Normally this is a button on VCR remote controls that allow you to switch between whats playing in the VCR or whats coming in from the 'air/cable signal' from the cable or antenna wire on the back.

If this is a VCR/DVD player combo unit it would appear that the TV may be on the wrong channel for proper operation of the VCR functions (ch 3 or 4 are usually the selectable option on the back of the unit).

Make sure your DVD player is plugged into the correct input on the TV(video 1/svideo/or component ) and the TV is tuned to that same input. If the TV is on the correct input then the TV/VCR button shouldn't do anything at all which is normal operation when watching a DVD. If this doesn't clarify please reply with the model # of the unit. I would be happy to help more.

VHS won't work

Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.

Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.
