Question about Philips VR550 VHS VCR

1 Answer

550 I have just bought the 550 and I want to connect the tv, video, freeview and dvd together. When the video is turned on all I get is a blue screen. I have rechecked all of the connections and they seem fine. I have used another video and it works. Any ideas??

The blue is usually the video, chances are you have no channels tuned into it or its on an av channel. anyway put a tape in and press play.(assuming you have av1 connected to tv by scart lead) failing that try wriggling the scat in the back of the vcr while on play---failing that tune it to an analogue station on the tv via the ariel (rf) leads

How do I hook up this flat screen tv to my dvd


TV,s and DVD,s usually provide wiring diagrams to connect them together. Basically the "output" Connections of the DVD will go to the same "Input" connections on the TV. Most are colour coded. Red to red, blue to blue, yellow to yellow. These connections are usually marked Sound Left, Sound right, and video. If the DVD and the TV both have separate sound and video connections, or an "s" video output / input , use those as you will get a better picture and sound. For the standard RCA plug connections all you will need is the standard 3 colour lead to connect them. If you have the fancy S Video connections , you will need the special cable for this. Any good TV sales or electronic sales shop will have them.

I bought a freeview box, My tv has only one scart socket. how do i connect my dvd player to combine with this?


You need a video switch box, that has two video and audio inputs and a video and audio output that connects to the video and audio connections on the scart cable.
Then you can switch between the DVD player or the freeview box.
These devices are available on the Internet, use Google to search for these devices.

I cannot connect the dvd, freeview and tv wires so that they all work. I only have one scart socket at the back of the tv but have bought a scart adaptor to solve this problem. I cannot get my dvd to work...


If your freeview has two scart sockets,connect a scart from the freeview(marked tv)into the tv,then one from the dvd into the other scart socket on the freeview,the main aerial should go into the freeview and a flylead out into the tv.Hope this helps

Which channel do i put the tv on, and which do i put the dvd player on in order for them to work together? I have a sanyo flat screen tv and a sony dolby digital dvd player, and i don't know how to get...


You do not put your TV on any channel. DVD players need to connect to a TV with video cables and not a RF cable. This means 3 connection options on how your DVD player should connect to your TV. First, since your DVD player is NOT a bluray player, then HDMI connection is not needed. 2nd, the best choice would be component cables. These are the RED/GREEN/BLUE RCA connector that are on the back of your DVD player. They got into the input of your TV that has the RED/GREEN/BLUE RCA connectors. These are your video connector. Now, you need to connect the audio. Look for the RED/WHITE analog audio connectors out of your DVD player. Connector those to your AUDIO RED/WHITE input of the TV. Power on the DVD player and then power on your TV. Press the SOURCE or INPUT button on the remote for the TV until you see the DVD on the TV....The second option is the connect your DVD player up to your TV with composite video, YELLOW/RED/WHITE cable...

Recording Problems


Hi.

Yes.
Most tv sets with freeview built in do not allow you to record it.
Check your tv instruction manual to see if it is at all possible.

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


Hi.

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).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

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.

Wharfedale DVDRHD400 Set up Issue


Hi I had the same problem. The answer is to use a scart lead on the freeview box and connect it to the input/output scart on the DVD. Then connect a scart lead from the TV out on the DVD to the TV. You then press Video source on the DVD remote until 'scart' is displayed to pick the freeview channels. Hope that helps
