Question about Aiwa HV-MX100 VHS VCR

1 Answer

I am having trouble channel setting and recording.

I went in to menu then channel set and tried to set channels. When i set the channels, and tried to record i still got a blank screen. The tv i have does not have a tv/vcr button, it has a aux channel. When i turn the vcr on, it displays in the aux channel. The vcr is plugged directly into the tv not the cable.

    I havehad this VCR for 9 years, and have never been able to get this VCR to recognize the channels on my cable provider. I have carefully read and reread the installation instructions, double, triple, and quadruple checked my setup, and the machine steadfastly refuses to acknowledge the existence of any incoming signal from the cable. I can feed the same 75ohm coax into my Sanyo VCR, and have no problems. I can also feed the same signal to every TV I own, and have no problems. Only the Aiwa fails to detect the signal. This is not a huge problem, since I mainly use this VCR for playing European VHS tapes, but every time I've wanted to use it to record from the TV I have always encountered this failure.

If you have a bad or fuzzy picture when viewing tapes on VCR then you need a new video drum. I think you can buy another that is for your brand on the internet. More VCR Repair -

Unable to record any BBC channels on tvonics dvr

I had this problem and did 'Menu' then 'Settings' and 'Reset set top box'. This will lose your channels and timers, but the recorded programs will still be there. After I did this I could record again on BBC!

I have installed a converter box we have a rooftop antenna, now I cannot record, it does not seem to find channel 9.1, 12.1 etc only 9, 12 etc I went from antenna to converter to DVD MWR10D6 to TV. My tv...

If you have the converter connected to the recorder by composite or s-video(line inputs), you will need to specify which jacks from within the setup menu of the recorder. There are 2 sets of line inputs into the recorder, so you have to select the right ones. They are called L-1 and L-2. The L-1 jacks are in the rear and the L-2 jacks are in the front. The channel selection should also be on L-1 or L-2. If you are using the
RF input(fat cable) to the recorder, you should have the recorder on the channel number that matches the output of the converter (channel 3 or 4). The converter RF output is selected by a switch in back of the converter or by the setup menu of the converter.

Menu path for setting L-1 or L-2 inputs:
Setup > General Setting > Video > Video Input > L-1 or L-2 > Video In or S-Video In

Since all TV chanels went digital, the TV Channel reception and the Weather reception are lost. I only get a recorded message about the T.V. conversion to digital.

Try using the menu function to re-search for channels. The digital changeover moved many channels and you may just need to have the set search for them all again.

Doesn't give me the option to change the channel when timer recording

If you are recording something on the VCR, it won't let you change the channel. If not, you need to make sure the RC is set to the vcr in question (mine has VCR1 and VCR2)

You can set it up the way I've done for years...put cable line into VCR first, the VCR to then can watch and record 2 separate channels.

Cant figure out how to set TV to cable setting

The company's page for this set is here. There's a link toward the bottom to download the user's manual.

If I read the manual correctly, you're out of luck without an external tuner such as a cable box. This set was made for the European market and its tuning system isn't fully compatible with that used in the US. There's a "channel swap" function which lets you reassign the channels it finds to whatever channel number you want, and it's described in the manual. I assume that's to allow for the different frequency/channel number assignments in use in all the areas it tries to cover. The set's tuner just may not be able to pick up all the channels on your cable system. As long as it gets US channel 3 or 4 correctly, you can use the set with a cable box or video recorder that properly tunes the cable channels.

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish

Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

Channel stuck and can't record shows the same night

Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.

Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.

Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).

Good luck!

Programming Quasar VHQ940 for DTV converter box

I assume you're trying to record from the DTV box. You will have to set the DTV box to play through channel 3 then tell the VCR to record channel 3. So basically the VCR always THINKS it's recording channel 3, but in reality it's recording whatever channel the DTV box is on. You will be unable to used timed recording unless you leave the box on whatever channel it is you're wanting to tape.
