Re: input selection

Many of the late VCRs have very limited funtion from the VCR buttons. Power, eject, play, perhaps channel selection, that is about it for most. I assume you don't have the manual? Looked on Mitsubishi website, didn't list a manual for your specific model, perhaps another model would be close enough. Replacement remotes here:

I connected my VCR to a new Samsung LED TV with the white ,red and yellow audio/video cable connection. The VCR is working but I put the tv and the VCR on Cahnnel 3 and it does not show up on the TV, WHY?

Hi there
To answer your question;
You need to change the input(not channel) on your tv to video input. There should be a button on your remote and/or tv called input.
Otherwise you should find it in the menu under"input source"

Cannot get channels with remote stuck on AV2/3/4/5/6

The TV button on the remote is to select TV mode for the controller. STB, VCR & DVD do the same for their respective devices.

The A/V should select the external inputs by itself. If not try each of the Panasonic codes in turn:

0011, 0021, 0027,0029,0039,0072, 0102

Enter the codes as follows:

Press and hold TV for 3 seconds until the TV key flashes and then stays on.

Enter one of the codes (above)

TV key should flash twice. (if not go back to the beginning)

Try pressing the buttons on the controller. If all the functions do not work, try the next code.

Where do I find the input select? i am trying to connect a video game to my vcr which is a mitsubishi hs-u540.

Usually there's an input select button on a VCR's remote. You just press that, and it should work. It usually does.

How to connect a vcr for recording programs

1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote

* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

Connecting vcr to tv

Find Video & Audio Out pins at back of Combo player. This is output signal which will be connected at Video & Audio Input at front of TV. Watch out video pin will go to video input. Now select AV input of TV by remote. Usually its AV-4.
Have fun, or need more info, let me know the out comes.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings

Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?

This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

No signal on screen in VCR mode

I assume your plasma set has one or more auxillary (component) inputs, and to one of these is where you should hook in the VCR. You will have a video input jack, and a set of audio input jacks (probably 2 for stereo) for each of these aux. input sets. While exact setups differ, depending on your cable box(es), DVD players, and whatever other equip., a likely hookup is from the VCR video & audio outputs to one set of the aux. inputs on the plasma set. When you want to use the VCR for playback, you must select that particular aux. input with the plasma remote. Some of the hookups these days get complicated by all the equip. some have, but the above is at least a start. Thanks
