Question about GE VG2050 VHS VCR
First of all the model I have is not listed so this model is the closest one to it. The Model I have is GE VG2016. I know it is an older model but hope you can help. I am having a problem with the cable signal going through the vcr. I get a snowy picture on the TV. Especially the lower channels it is hardly visable. I disconnected the VCR and hooked up to cable directy to the TV and it works great. This has coming on for a long time but recently it is getting worse. Any suggestions? Chas
You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.
