Question about Sanyo Televison & Video
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.
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.
