New sanyo hdtv and old vcr...can't get menu to appear on screen

We have hooked upour vcr to our new tv with rca cables as per tv manuel instructions...we cannot get menu to appear...
do we have to put the tv on a special channel or what...
we just returned a new Emerson tv that we had a different problem with (not because of vcr though) on that one we had no problem getting the vcr menu on screen and no problem with recording or playing...
Is there something special we should do with this one...this tv is a Sanyo
any help would be a blessing...
thanks

Did you select video input 1 when you installed the vcr?
It should be in your tv's menu.

There is an input or input select button that gives you cable,hdmi and video composite,to run the vcr. hook up cable and put the tv on channel3 to make sure that works first,then play with the rca cables. keep in mind a tape has to be playing,the new tv have a signal sense circuit,if there is just "snow" you get a blue screen

How do I hook my Sanyo DVD/VCR player to my slyvania TV


Wow - lots of info needed about your tv for a good answer there. But I can assume you only have a cable TV hookup on the back of your TV - and dont have a RCA input. So I will go on that. I had an old TV and had just this situation... I used my VCR to interface the DVD player for me.

So I ran the DVD player output to my VCR ( that had the typical RCA cables ) - Vidieo - Right channel- left channel - and then ran the VCR output COAX ( standard cable TV cable ) from my VCR to my old TV. once I selected channel 3 or 4 on my tv, I could see my VCR and my VCR would send me the DVD output, if I set the VCR to do that. Now I could record a DVD onto VHS ( for my personal use only of course ) good luck...

Trying to hookup old dvd/vcr to new flat screen. have cable box hooked up nad working. dvd/vcr no hdmi connections. what cable hookup do I use


You need to use composite inputs. They have three connections, yellow for video, white for left audio and red for right audio. It does not matter which input you go into. I would imagine there are about 7 separate inputs like the ones I described, just remember which one you use because you will have to set the input to that number to see the VCR/DVD later. Get a phono or RCA patch cable and connect the same colors from out on the vcr/dvd box to in on the tv. Turn everything on, set the tv to the proper input using the menu or input selection and you should be able to view video tapes or dvds. Let me know if you need more help.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

Not really a solution....RCA customer services (from India, I think), says that there is no way with that VCR because both the front and back (red, yellow,white) ports are input, and the only other jack on the tv is the one for the antenna. Since the digital converter is inside the tv, a splitter would do no good.
I would still have to get either a new VCR with the digital converter in it or get another converter box. An atmosphere of bait and switch is covering this hdtv scheme....

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

Reading rca cables


Hi!

There is obviously a lot of background that is missing form your question, most specifically the kinds of equipment that you are using and the exact way that you have wired the components. However, I can tell you that a common problem when changing the "source" for DVD/VCR units is to also change the source settings inside the unit, which are usually accessed through the setup utility, which is usually in the menu of the DVD/VCR. To access the menu, you may have to have the coax cables hooked up, just until you change the settings to the RCA (component) cables.

Good luck, and let me know if this helps!

I too just bought an RCA remote for the same television. The button to access other video screens is the A/B button on mine (next to the last channel button).

I need help with my tv and dvd/vcr combo


Hmmmm...I dont understand exactly what you are saying, but it sounds like your TV doesnt have RCA ports and you want to hook up a newer DVD player that uses RCA ports. If you have only a cable port (silver threads with a hole sticking out of back) on TV and RCA ports on DVD player, you have to buy a converter. You can get one at Wal-Mart for 20-30 dollars. Or you can just update your TV which it sounds like you badly need to do! :)
