Your videoplayer(vhs) heads are dirty, use a vhs cleaning tape, buy from your local music store, or ask them where to get one, or your the videotapes you are using are worn, try other newer less used tapes if they work fine then the tapes your trying to play are worn, otherwise dirty play heads are the problem.

This is actually an easy fix what you do is you take off lid the VCR cleaning everything with a Q-tip and a little alcohol all the gears accept the head with the head you use a cloth 4 eyeglass wear that's for anti reflective lenses and a little alcohol this will not scratch your head on the VCR
Then next you take.and use white grease and grease everything that has a track area being careful not to touch heads . You even do that tracks on the side of the VCR the ones that go in to the machine
Then towards the front of machine you will see two round gears lift those up slightly and check to see if white tape is in tracks if not push it slightly with a cuetip.
Then put machine back together as tape won't work with top of machine off
Plug in and hook.up IT should work now.
Good luck
Do this before you replace a ton if part

Describe your Panasonic PV-D4743 DVD Player / VCR Combo Problem I DO NOT HAVE REMOTE FOR THE DVD/VCR. WILL A UNIVERSAL REMOTE SOLVE THIS? I HAVE A SHARP TV WHICH ALSO LACKS A REMOTE.


Universal remote may give you few controls like power on-off, FF, REW etc but Menu may not open.
Substitute remote for this Combo is available in Remotes.com and original remote is available in Panasonic Parts under part number LSSQ0374
Same thing goes to your Sharp tv.
Thanks.

Try resetting the unit. Push and hold the on/off button for 10+ seconds. --or-- Look for a reset button behind the drop down door, and gently depress it with a pen point for a couple of seconds. If this does not work, try calling Panasonic.

Remote code


Some remotes, such as the Sony RM-VL600, have a learning function that will "learn" the code for your set.  I used one for my combo unit, and it worked OK for the TV functions, but I couldn't get it to work for the DVD player.

Panasonic PV-D4743S combo DVD/VCR player won't eject DVD


This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
