When you can open it, , try that. First unplug the VCR. Open the device and help the tape to come out. It won't be worth trying to go for a repair of it. Most people are giving away their vcr's or you can buy one second hand for 5 dollar. btw. The tape can be broken, or hooked in the machine. When the tape is removed and it is good, try winding it in the casset, when the content is important to you. To be able to wing the tape, put the cassette up side down end press a pencil in the hole in the middle of the cassette. Then you carefully can turn one of the spools to get the tape in. Try winding both sides, till you see the tape coming in.

SOURCE: Setup VCR to TV, using RF plugs & coaxial cable

The solution was both simple and elementary - why didn't I remember it sooner?
The TV needed to be 'tuned' to the video just as it needed to be tuned for each TV channel.
I selected channel 12 on the TV, went into the tuning mode on the TV and with the video playing, cycled through the TV tuning process until, Voila, there was the video showing on the TV.

SOURCE: the code is a rf-35

It's asking you to set the RF for the TV channel. This should be on a menu under something like TV Output.

SOURCE: Everything works fine, replaced RF tuner, fixed

Try cleaning the mode switch with Servisol Video 40. When you fixed the carriage also, you did get put it back right, in the correct position, otherwise the VCR will think it's in the wrong mode, even if the mode switch is fine!

That might be the TV output channel. I found these instructions in a Sanyo manual:
How to set the DVD+VCR's RF output channel 1. Set the TV to the VCR channel (3 or 4) depending upon the selected channel. 2. When the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel for more than five seconds. It will turn itself on and "RF03" or "RF04" appears in the dis-play window. 3. Press CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel or CH/TRK(v/V) on the remote control to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or CH 04). 4. Turn off the DVD+VCR.


It might solve the problem!

My atari 2600 4 switch was working yesterday but today somethings wrong.... i'm guessing it's the RF unit 'cause it still powers on. any other suggestions


Well it might be the rf switch so you should buy a new rf box for it then. If its plugged into a digital tv it won't work unless you plug it into a vcr or a dvd player.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
    Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
    CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five

    instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
    DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
    To view or record a CATV channel:
    1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
    2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the

    Plays on wrong channel


    ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .

    While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.

    The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on
    the front panel display

    Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output
    channel (CH 03 or CH 04).

    Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on

    Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF
    output channel you selected.
    Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3
    or CH4 of your TV

    PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.

    Thanks for using Fix Ya .

    Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?


    This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

    The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

    If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

    I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

    Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

    If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

    No sound - no video on TV


    if you're hooking your VCR via analog video input of your TV then check that the yellow colored video wire goes to yout TV video input, will also be colored yellow inside the terminal. The white and red color inputs are for audio. Likewise the output of your VCD will have the same colord code Yellow for video, red/white for audio (stereo). After setting this up, select your TV function to video in, be sure to check your video input channel as well if you're having more than one video input. Video 1 or 2 or 3. Make sure your VCR is powered up when you start to setup your TV function select.

    if you're hooking your VCR to your TV via RF signal (over your TV tuner) You need to scan the right frequency to get it tuned to your TV channel. Cabling willbe via RF antenna input of your TV and RF antenna out of your VCR.

    This is easy in a nutshell. from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote. Now for the cords: 1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial 2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable 3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable That is it. If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub. Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable) DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)
