SOURCE: HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.

Clean the tape path, that any thing the tape come in contact with. there is a roller that presses the tape against a metal guide. The roller should be dull not shining.

Im having problems hooking up thru vcr/dvd player


Hi,

The correct setup depends on whether you have a cable/satellite receiver and whether you want to record to and playback from the VCR. If you are using a cable/satellite receiver, this needs to be connected to both the TV and the DVD/VCR if you want to record. The DVD then needs to be connected to the TV via the video and audio out sockets on the back of the DVD/VCR for playback.

I can let you know exactly which connections to use and where they should all go, but I need to know the following details as otherwise I don't know which sockets/connect you have available.

1. Brand and model number of TV
2. Brand and model number of DVD/VCR
3. Brand and model number of any cable/satellite receiver if you are using one.

Please confirm these details and I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

No video; audio OK. Hooking up to new (used) TV.


Hi... The 3 plug cable is better as long as you match all the colors at both ends.

If there is left over stuff on the laser lens , it wont read the disk

I need to find Universal Remote Code for Sylvania DVC840G Player


Check www.remotecentral.com for the manual and codes. Also try scanning universal remote codes to see if another brand code that will work. Otherwise you will need a newer remote or a updateable one.

Sylvania vcr/dvd installation


!st) The antenna INPUT::RF (black wire usually from "cable TV", "Dish TV", even ANTENNA air wave reception,etc.) into INPUT of VCR\DVD, OUTPUT of VCR\DVD to TV RF input.
2nd) If you have INPUT\OUTPUT to what are called " RCA " jacks on your TV, on the front or on the back, then any & all output jacks from VCR\DVD goes to INPUT\OUTPUT of the TV.
In other words:: output of audio on VHS\DVD to input of audio on TV( RCA jacks). Output of video on VHS\DVD to input of video (RCA jacks)
Hope this helps

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.
