I cannot record a TV show on my DVD-VCR375, niether to a VCR tape or DVD disc. Nothing but static results. The recording mode of my machine works OK in dubbing from tape to disc.


You have to be sure you are running your video source THROUGH your VCR. Just because it's on the TV doesn't mean your VCR can see it. How are you hooked up? Cable? Satellite? If you are on basic cable you have a tough problem. This VCR does not have a tuner built into it. You will have to use a television or other device that has a tuner and a "MONITOR OUT" or "VIDEO OUT" plug in the back of it. This is usually a composite, or yellow-colored cable. You will run this cable into the yellow plug in the back of the VCR that says "IN." You also need "AUDIO OUT" jacks from your television or other device. These are usually red and white cables. Plug these cables into the red and white "IN" plugs on your VCR by the yellow one. If you are using something like satellite where you have a box, you will want to plug in your satellite receiver to your VCR using the same colored cables. If you have to plug in the cables that once went to your television, you need to turn your television to the input you normally use to watch your VCR. You may need to change inputs on the VCR. You should then see your satellite or cable box on the television set. It is now running THROUGH your VCR. Hopefully, at this point, you are hooked up correctly. If you are using the "MONITOR OUT" method, you just have to have faith that it's working. If you're using the other method you can actually see it on the screen. Now tune to whatever you're trying to record and press the record button. Be advised, however, that many DVD/VCR recorders have protection detection built into them (particularly on the DVD side) and your recording may stop part-way through and tell you that "this content is protected." If you have other questions post back. Best of luck.

How do I hook up my vcr to my dvd recorder so I


You will need one RCA video cable it will have a yellow, red and white plugs. On the back of your VCR locate where the color inputs are find where it says VIDEO OUT hook it up there. On the back of the DVD Recorder look for the same color input jacks NOW find where it says VIDEO IN hook it up there. You may have to turn on your TV,DVD recorder and VCR to get the right channel. your Recorder may have one or more video inputs if it does turn on all three. Use the channel on your TV you use to watch DVDs make sure you see your DVD screen. Now to record to a DVD. Change the channel on the DVD Recorder. Look for the input channels It may be Video 1 Video 2 etc... depends on the inputs you have. ( A great way to tune your DVD Recorder is to play a prerorded VCR tape. Turn the channel on your DVD Recorder unil you see the prereorded tape playing. )

Different sound to picture


When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.
