It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.
Yes you can do this.
You just need to make sure that the TV outputs its picture on the scart lead that you have connected to the Pioneer unit, and you need to set the Pioneer unit to record from that scart input.
Once this is done, it will be able to record whatever you have on the screen.
Be aware though, if you turn off the TV it stops outputting its picture to the recorder, and if you change channel, it changes what what the recorder see's too.
I hope this helps you. :)
This sounds like you may have a bad color wheel. If you want to change this yourself you need to be aware that even with the tv unplugged there are still dangerous voltages in the set. Changing the color wheel is an involved repair the wheel it's self is very fragile to handle, they can be purchased on line from many sources.
The cost from a service center would be a normal service charge plus about $150.00 for a color wheel. If you have a service center come out to your house explain your problem clearly and they will know they need to bring a color wheel, it will prevent the tech from having to make a second visit.
I've had a couple of these. The panel control board is going bad, but there may be a way to make it last a bit longer. If you go into the MENU of the TV, and turn off all the color correction, all the whistles and bells that come inside the tv to "make the picture better," it usually helps. Any kind of motion correction, or any kind of noise reduction (picture noise reduction) should be turned off. If the picture has a cloud of green pixels that seems to pepper the screen, then after you turn off all the stuff in the menu, unplug the TV for 5 minutes, and then plug back in. It should help the picture some.
I have just run into the same thing, prior to the picture not coming on there was a loud whining noise, I thought it was the fan in the back, but, what I tried was removing the lower back panel, LIGHTLY tapping the light wheel assembly just left of the Bulb housing, and using a shop vac to first, **** the assembly around the edges and then reversing the air and Blowing it out. After much dust and dirt flying around the TV came on. It now only makes a little noise now and then, but, I will try this again today and then put the back panel back on. Since it would probably cost as much as a new TV for the color wheel, I gave this a try. For now, it is working.
