    Sorry, I'm so technically challenged....to clarify...I take the cable wire that was hooked up to TV and connect that to the output on back of VCR? Then do I connect cable back to TV? I'm really not as dumb as I must sound! Thanks for your patience.

How you hook up the VCR depends on the connections available on the VCR and the TV.

The simplest method is to use a cable from the VCR's RF (antenna) output connector to the TV's antenna input connector and tune the TV to the VCR output channel (3 or 4). You might need to purchase an adapter to switch from the standard plug on the cable to whatever kind of external antenna connector is on the TV. If the set only has a built-in antenna and no external connection at all (which would be quite unusual), you need a "balun" transformer. This has a connector on one end for the cable from the VCR and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Attach one of the terminals to the set's antenna with a clip-on jumper wire. Radio Shack sells the parts.

If your VCR does not have RF output but just audio and video jacks, connect those to the TV's a/v inputs if it has them. Again, an adapter cable might be required.

If the TV doesn't have a/v input available, you need an RF converter. This takes the a/v signals from the VCR and produces a channel 3 or 4 output that you can connect to the TV as described above.

It sounds more complicated than it actually is. Once you look at the VCR and TV, and remember that outputs always go to inputs, it's usually pretty clear what needs to be done. If you still have troubles please post a follow-up comment and I'll try to help more.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?


Hello,
The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

Sanyo TV


Hi,

If I understand your posting/description right, you have:
1, a Sanyo TV with only 1 video input;
2. you have a DVD player with only video output; and
3. you have a VCR (which I will assume to be with both video input and output).

Your query, if I may clarify, is how to hook them up so that you need not connect/disconnect any video cable when you want to switch video source from either DVD or VCR.

If that is what you want, then connect:
a. audio/video OUT of your DVD to audio/video IN of the VCR;
b. audio/video OUT of your VCR to audio/video IN of the TV.

The above described connection would allow you to:
i. watch DVD movies on your TV (your VCR must be powered ON and set to Video INput, your TV must be powered ON & set to Video INput);
ii. watch tape movies from your VCR without disconnecting/connecting cables.

Additionally, this arrangement would allow you to record DVD movies in your VCR. Further, connecting your cable/aerial to the RF INput of your VCR would allow you to do the same with a TV/Cable program.

Incidentally, if one of your units (TV, VCR, DVD) would only have a single audio input, it is still possible since some models uses the white audio RCA connector as either left or mono, the red is right. You can also use a 2 female RCA to 1 RCA male adapter as shown below to joint the red/white audio.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you require additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

How Do I hook up my Sanyo DVW -7000 To my Dishnetwork Box to record?


Connect the "Out to TV"video and audio on the DVR box to the "Video in and Audio In" on the VCR ...unless it's a single screw type connector on the DVR then hook THAT to the "In from ANT/cable" on the VCR
