Question about Sanyo VWM-800 VHS VCR

I Am Having Trouble Tuning My Channels On My VCR.

Hi, I was trying to tape a figure skating even on ESPN, and my VCR would not even recognize that channel. I tried adding all of the channels past 12 back, but I still got a blue screen . Can you help me find a manual for my model ? Or help me solve this problem? It was working great up until today.


Thanks,
Suzanne

Hey is the VCR set for cable? even if it's not a local channel
could try to come in. turn the blue screen off on the VCR that
might solve your problem. If the channel is weak the blue screen will come on and block it. you can turn it off by going into
your VCR settings. Also If the cable is weak a splitter will
cause this you might have to hook the cable up directly to the
VCR to record it and watch it through the VCR. that's was may
problem once.
also you can tune channel 12 to your VCR manually if it is too
weak because of a nearby local channel it won't tune in automatically.

Hi there, Having some trouble with the Sony SLV-SE830 VHS VCR. It should just work once the power is switched on and the SCART lead is connected to the back of the TV and the AV channel is set to the...


If you tv has more than one SCART connector.. ensure you have the cable plugged into the proper one.

Not sure what the problem is.. if you have a modern bidirecitonal SCART cable properly connected.. you should be able to view and hear the tape as it plays.. assuming the machine is in good condition.

Of course if you want to record a program other than the one you are watching you will ned to supply an independent broadcast signal to the VCR.. and yes you may have to program the tuner on the VCR if you want to record.

However if you simply wish to view tapes.. you shoud be set to use the machine as connected.

Best of Luck!

Sony SLV-640HF Problem


I would be inclined to say that there are only two likely problems that you may be encountering. Either you are getting a bad signal feed, or the connectors on the cable are getting old and need replaced. The connection to the cable can break down over time, especially if they have been connected and reconnected several times. I cannot rule out problems caused by the transition to DTV, but that doesnt seem likely if there are only a few channels affected. As far as "selective failure" of the VCR's built-in tuner, I would say that that is also a very unlikely source for the problem If the tuning components inside the tuner had gone out, I would expect to see a problem on all channels watched through the system. If you are having this problem on all channels of the sony, then the tuner could surely be the problem, but if you haven't used it much that would indicate a problem at manufacturing, however since at least one of the machines is working fine on some channels and not on all of them, I would suspect the connections or the signal from your cable company. Contact them first ands see if they are having signal issues, if not try replacing your connectors.

Dvds recorded on Samsung will ONLY play on Samsung


Hi,

Have you finalised the disc before trying to play it elsewhere? If not this could well be the problem. The option is the menu.

Hope this helps

Tuning in to TV with wireless headphones


I need more info on this. What type of tuner and receiver? Is the tuner plugged into the headphone jack on the tv? If you have a tuner for tv that tunes in channels 2,3,5,12,25,60 etc that would be an older tuner that used the older NTSC standard. Tv stations now broadcast using ATSC, channel 4,1, 4.2 etc.

I am having trouble channel setting and recording.


If you have a bad or fuzzy picture when viewing tapes on VCR then you need a new video drum. I think you can buy another that is for your brand on the internet. More VCR Repair -
