Question about Goldstar GVR-DD1 VHS VCR

Goldstar KMV-9012 (year 1990) TV/VCR Combo

Main power button turns on both the TV & VCR. I power on, the vcr makes a running/slight grinding noise for about 5-10 seconds, then shuts completely off. VCR will not load a new tape either, automaticially or manually. It only will push in so far, but no reaction. When I power on, I can see the cogs, that would drive the tape, spinning ... but again, after 5-10 seconds it completely powers off. I would even be happy just using it for the TV, as it's hooked up to satelite, however it will not stay on for more than a few seconds, without powering off automatically.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Re: Goldstar KMV-9012 (year 1990) TV/VCR Combo

This is the problem with these combo units. When the VCR has trouble (this sounds like a mechanical one) it inhibits the TV from working as well cause they share the same power supply. It needs a VCR expert to fix ya up.
I tell people all the time not to buy these combo units unless they really need the conveinience cause you get to throw away the TV when the VCR goes bad.

How to connect flat screen t.v to vcr

Easiest way is to connect the TV & VCR using a Scart connector. The VCR should automatically switch over when play is selected. To go over to the VCR channel then select AV1 on the TV input select. ( This may be named different depending what make of TV you have eg. AUX 1)

Can only get DVD audio when hooking it up to Goldstar VCR...

The DVD must be connected with the RCA jacks-plugs [usually black & red] to the INPUT of the VCR, not to the RF connector. You must press the VCR\TV button to VCR so that the VCR takes control.When you place a DVD movie or AUDIO program it could be copied to the VCR. or played through the VCR.

No movie picture

If you want to record from cable to your vcr the usual configuration is either cable to cable box, cable box to vcr, and vcr to tv. If you want to get rid of the snowy pictures, you can plug the cable box directly to the tv and separately to the vcr, and you can also plug the vcr into the tv. but the tv has to have two inputs
the best configuration will be the black, screw in, coaxial cable from the cable box to the television and the red, white and yellow RCA plugs from the cable box to the vcr in.
then the vcr our red whit and yellow cables to the back of the tv.
To watch vcr, switch the tv to video mode
to watch cable, switch tv to channel 3 or 4, depending on the cable service.
please let me know if you have questions.

Hitachi F361 VCR Digital Auto Tracking (not 631!)

I had the same problem when I got the TV from someone and I didnt have a remote. I went out and got a ONE FOR ALL remote and once I got it set up I had it in VCR mode and hit the AV button and now I can get to the channels. Hope it works for you.
