Question about GE VG4040 VCR

1 Answer

VG4043 We actually have a VG4043. We have two cameras in a room, with feeds into another room. They are hooked to the TV. We have the TV and VCR connected with the appropriate cords. However, when we put a tape in the VCR to record, the VCR won't record, fast foward, rewind, etc. The only things it will do is: power on/off, TV/VCR, and eject. We had another GE VCR that did the exact same thing, so we switched them and now this one is having issues. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

How to connect and record on a VCR when you have a Digital Cable Box.


Do you want to still be able to use that trusty ol' VCR to be able to record your TV shows but can't seem to do so now that you have gotten a Cable Box?
Well here are some simple tips on how to connect all the components and not compromise the quality of the incoming signal of the cable signal feed.

First here are the cables you will need.
3 sections of Coax cable (preferably RG-6 quality)

or

2 sections of Coax cable (preferably RG-6 quality)
1 RCA cable (Yellow/Red/White)

Now here is how you will need to hook up the cables properly.
1) Connect one Coax cable to the incoming cable signal feed. Usually a screw on connector on the wall or line coming up through the floor.
Now connect the other end of this cable to the "Cable in" or "Input" located on the Cable box.

2) Now, connect one end of another Coax Cable to the "TO TV" or "OUTPUT" on the back of the Cable Box. Now connect the other end of this cable to the "CABLE/ANT IN" or "INPUT" connection on the back of the VCR.

3) Now, connect the last coax line from the "TO TV" or "OUTPUT" on the back of the VCR. Now connect the other end of this cable to the "Cable IN" on the back of the TV.

***** ALTERNATIVE OPTION FOR THIS FINAL CONNECTION******

Using the RCA cable connect to the "VIDEO OUT" RCA connections on the back of the VCR and connect the other end of this cable to the "VIDEO IN" on the back of the TV.

Now this is how you will need to set your VCR and Cable box to make your recording.

1) Tune your VCR to Channel 3 or set your timer to record Channel 3. (The actual channel you are going to be recording is controlled by the Cable Box)

2) Tune your cable box to the channel you wish to record.
*** Note: Some cable boxes have an auto tune feature that will tune your cable box to a channel while you gone. Contact your cable provider to see if this is available on the model that you have***

I have this TV that is a 2008 samsung but i cant hook up the cable line because i dont have a cable box i only have the coax cable line comming out of the wall in my liveing room, problem being is that...


If you have an older VCR, you can connect the cable to the vcr "in" , then connect the A/Vcables from the video and audio out of the vcr to the A/V on the set and put the set on av1 for source. If you don't have a vcr then you will have to get a box.

I have Time Warner cable. I have a Symphonic SR90VE vcr/dvd that I have hooked up to the main TV. The cable box services a second tv in another room. I can't seem to get the main tv and the vcr/dvd player...


Cable goes to vcr cable INPUT, then run cables from vcr OUPUT to tv INPUT or AV.

Then put tv on input or av channel or channel 4 and use put the vcr on the channel you want to record.

Hot to hook up cable


This monitor with a television tuner does not have a coaxial connection. I was able to get cable by connecting (buying if you don't have) to my dvd/vcr which had the coaxial connectors. Then I ran the video component cable (green, blue & red - had to buy that) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. Then I ran the audio cable (red & white) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. A little tricky figuring out where on the tv to actually connect but eventually got it. YUV2 on the side.

Adding tv to a dish network dvr


Your upstairs tv is connected via a coaxial cable and you can do a few things to get programming to the third room.

The first is to locate the wire that enters the upsairs room that currently has tv and insert a splitter by cutting the line to that room and running the out ports to the rooms and the in port to the other end of the wire that you cut. This will give you the same picture in both rooms.
If you have a system that does not use diplexers to backfeed the second TV you can backfeed the 3-4 cable going to the TV1 by cutting the line and adding a splitter with the inport running to the 3-4 port on the receiver and one of the out ports going to your tv1 and the other outport going into the UHF side of a diplexer. You will need to cut the Satellite feed into the back of the receiver on the back side of the seperator and connect the seperator to the SAT port of the diplexer. The IN/OUT port of the diplexer will connect to the end of the sat feed cable that goes to the wall plate. This will allow you to go into the attic of outside of the house and find the sat cable that feeds the TV one and break it there and put the IN/OUT port of that diplexer facing the TV1 room and the SAT port connecting to the other end of the cable you broke. The remaining UHF port will be the feed for the new room that you wish to connect. This set up will allow for viewing the same program as that at the TV1 location however you will need to change the channels at the TV1 location or buy an IR to UHF converter to allow you to be able to work the system independently from the receiver. Hope this answered your question. IF you need further assistance please contact me and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Connect tv vcr and dvd player to digital converter box


Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.
