Question about Sanyo Televison & Video

1 Answer

There appears to be no 'menu' button on the remote

I have been given a vcr but with no manual and I can't work out how to tune it into the tv. I've checked all the cables are in the correct place but it doesn't appear to be registering with the TV. FF, REW, play, stop, rec etc all appear to be working but we can't get a picture through the tv.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thank you.

    Thanks for that. We did discover that the TV was coming through on channel 5 and once we found that we were able to get the menu up on screen :o)



    I also had another look on the Sanyo webite and managed to download a free copy of the manual which I have saved in case it's needed again lol



    Thanks again :o)

First make sure the cables are truly in the right places. The antenna or cable goes to the VCR's antenna input connector, and there should be a cable from the output connector to the TV's antenna input. Sometimes people get the input and output cables reversed.

The VCR's output to the TV will either be on channel 3 or 4. Those are the only choices, so you should be getting the signal on one of them. On some Sanyo models there is a switch on the back near the "out to TV" connector to select the channel. On others you need the remote to select through the VCR setup menu. Check the remote for a button labeled "TV/VCR" and press that while a tape is playing. That button controls whether the signal from the VCR goes to the TV, or if it just passes the antenna signal through to the TV. Try both channels 3 and 4 on the TV.

If you are never able to get a picture from the VCR on either channel, its RF output section may be bad. This can happen. You can get around this if your TV has a/v inputs available. Connect the red and white audio (red is right channel and white is the left) output jacks and yellow video output jack on the VCR to the corresponding inputs on the TV. Then switch the TV to the a/v input to watch the VCR.

How do I set the clock on a fisher fvh-7600 vcr I do not have a owners manual


Also having no manual for a Fisher FVH-7600, I eventually guessed how to set the clock after finding a remote control (Fisher RVR-7600) that works with it.

With the TV and VCR connected and powered on, the TV set to channel 3, and the remote's FUNCTION switch and VCR/TV button both set to VCR, I see a blank blue TV screen.

Then I press the PROG. button on the remote, and a menu with instructions appears on the TV screen. CLOCK SETTING is item 1 on that menu.

How do I manually tune a Samsung P2370HD to my VCR so that I can watch videotapes?


Hello,

Do you mean to switch from TV to DVD/VCR input? If so, use the remote control and then toggle between the INPUT or the TV/AV key.

Make sure that the RCA cables from the VCR are connected to the TV correctly.

Kindly provide more information so that we can help you further.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
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.
bye.

Sansui TV/VCR/DVD combo


This solution is provided by one of our experts premtech


Child Lock

Combos
--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds


Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature


If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
OR TRY THIS..
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

CTC169AU
Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

CTC185's
If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

CTC203's
In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.
