You can try switch scart's!! Then try to record on DVDR or leave as it is and look out for picture on your VCR!!! If you do (B) you will lose a picture quality!
good luck

Hello wookie300,

This sounds like a convergence problem. The convergence amplifiers in these projection TV tend to malfunction and cause this problem. Here is a way of dealing with this if you choose to repair this problem yourself.

I posted this earlier but it applies in your case:

The problem is your Convergence Amplifiers, they are usually marked with a STK392-110. You will have to also change out the fusable links connected to the STK392-110s. Desolder the pins and unscrew the ICs and remove both of them. Then desolder the fusable liks and replace them with the new ones, then insert the new ICs and solder them in (being careful not to create solder bridges). Then you will have to perform the convergence on your TV, Try to use Auto-Convergence to do this.

The STK392-110 look like two flat 6 sides rectangular boxes with screw holes on each side and they are attached to a large metal heat sink.

I hope this helps,

Will the TV go to channel 3? if not you need to reporogram the TV to sence channel 3 or go into the setup and undelete channel 3. Channel 3 is the channel your digital box is set to boradcast to the tv itself.

In case we are talking about an LCD TV, try to understand if the problem is related to connections and/or connected devices.

If prolem is not input-related, then you may have an inverter board that is starting to fail.

Also ensure that problem is not input source selection. This is done using the remote.

To check if problem is input-related.

Test the TV with only one of the two connected device. Test for one day or two (depending on how often the problem occurrs). Test for example with only Virgin box and HDMI connection.

If problem does not occurr, then replace cable and check devices connection settings. Test using different cables and change the way you connect the devices.

If the problem occurrs with different devices (stand alone) and cables, then the problem is the TV.

When an LCD has sound but no picture, and problem doesn't depend on input signal, that usually means that you have a defective inverter board inside the TV.
In that case the inverter must be tested and replaced.

Tv dvd and sky box

isn't there any manual/ book?
To connect TV to Sky Box VCR, connect the SCART lead from the AV1 socket on the TV to the TV SCART socket on the Sky Box. Connect another SCART lead from the AV2 socket on the TV to the AV1 socket on the DVD player and an RF cable from VCR to the aerial in socket on the TV.

The aerial port does not work.

It is possible the tuner or antenna connection is bad---If you can call up the menu with the remote set needs to be switched from cable etc to air or antenna and channels programed------not on the rear input connection but for the tuner in the set (presume it has a tuner if antenna connection of any type is there.

I have a JVC RM-C60 TV. I'm trying to tune it in to my Virgin Media HD box using a standard SCART lead but having no joy. It's completely failing to find the cable channel (or any other for that matter)....

Tuning of the TV not required when using scart lead, just select external input that the scartis connected to, ie AV1,AV2 (EXT1,EXT2) etc. The problem is possibly to do with the Virgin box, it may be set to HDMI out in which case it will not output anything via the scart lead, you would need to connect via an HDMI lead (small socket on the rear of the unit looks a little like a USB socket). Problem is if your TV is a CRT television its unlikely to have this socket. Your Virgin box can be reset to output via the scart but you would need to contact Virgin for this process.

I have lost my remote for my sansui tvm1916a and i want to still use my dvd player, how do i change the imput? pushing the two buttons at once brings up a menu but input isnt an option


If your DVD player is connected to your TV with a SCART cable, your TV should switch to DVD input when you insert a DVD and press' Play'. If you are connected with a standard co-axial aerial cable (fly lead) this wont work and you will need to buy a SCART cable (or new remote) if you wish to continue using your DVD player with this TV.

Hope this helps,

Tv with built-in digital tuner not receiving any channels

Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:
Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels.
This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard) signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial.
make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out.
The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable.
If you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these.
If the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the signal.
please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will only make it worse.
try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.

What plugs in where at the back of model 32AV633D Does single scart go to ext 1 or ext 2 Where does outside aerial plug in, there are so many ? Sorry but I'm a complete technophobe who is hopeless at...

If you have a cable box or freeview box, your main aerial lead plugs into the box. Then you connect a scart lead from your cable box/freeview box/ or dvr box to ext 1 on the tv. Where the aerial lead plugs into your cable/freeview/dvr box, there may be an aerial out socket too. You could connect a patch lead from the box to your tv as well so you have UHF direcy from your cable/freeview/dvr box to the TV as well as scart

Since digital switchover yesturday loss of digital channels

It may well be your aerial despite the success with your DVD recorder.

Digital signals are very much weaker than analogue ones, and when multiple devices share a single aerial you can get this kind of problem. You also lose about 60% of the signal at each point in your aerial cable where there are signal splitters.

There are a number of possible solutions:-

First, look at every bit of coaxial cable you have between the aerial and each appliance. Check especially at the aerial end for corrosion or poor shielding/installation and especially for evidence of rain water penetration. If the aerial is on the roof then it will cost almost as much to get the aerial inspected as it will to have it replaced, so skip to the next option. But otherwise, check along every bit of the cable for any cuts or splits in the insulation and properly remake every junction or joint if there are any doubts about them. If the cable is in poor condition then consider option three instead.

The second is to try to see if you get a better digital signal from another transmitter, this will involve trying different aerial positions so is impractical if your aerial is roof mounted but is worth trying if it's in the loft instead. It doesn't always follow that your best digital signal will be from the transmitter which you used for analogue transmissions.

Thirdly, if you're still using the same aerial as you have done for years then it's worth upgrading to one optimised for digital reception. When doing this it's foolish not to replace the cabling as well as you need it to be as good as possible. With analogue, many installers got away with using cheaper cable intended only for very short cable runs from the wall socket to the tv.

The fourth option is the budget option but can work as well as the third option: fit an additional analogue style aerials and run a separate cable down to each appliance. If these are fitted in the loft and you have the space, then there's no aesthetic or planning concerns. Normally the extra cables can run partway down through the house alongside existing cables, but for best signal quality keep them separate and ensure that the cable runs as as short as possible.

One further thing which you may want to try before all else: connect your digital box directly to the aerial cable which currently feeds your dvd recorder. Leave all other tv devices disconnected from the aerial. If the box retunes correctly then it's definitely a supply of signal issue as outlined above and if not then you should add the exact make and model of your digibox as a comment to this answer as there are a large number of earlier digibox models which cannot retune correctly due to evolving standards.

Stereo Sound on new LCD Samsung Series 5 TV

Hi there,
It appears you may be using a cable type which isnt compatible with stereo. The Coaxial output on a lot of the old VCRs dont always support stereo so that may be your problem right there. i suggest you try connecting the cable box directly to your TV using a scart cable. Scart definately supports stereo audio so if this doesnt give you stereo sound the problem lies within the cable box's audio settings which you should be able to access with your remote.

ope this helps you solve your problem :)
Good Luck.

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
