I can not accrss either a VCR tape or a DVD.

Is the TV saying no signal? Are you on the correct input? Is it SCART or composite? Are you getting sound? If no sound then it might be on the wrong input on the TV

Our new Toshiba SDV398KC2 will not play a DVD. It is like it is on the wrong channel. It shows the DVD playing with the counter but does not show it on the TV. Can you help?

I've seen this behavior before.

For this model, I *think* that you need to use the component connections/input in order to view the DVDs. If VCR shows ok when using the cable, but not the DVD (and it seems to work since it goes up as if playing), try to connect the component (blue/green/red connectors) and it should work.

Don't forget to switch input on your TV to component.

P.S. If you have HDMI on both this dvd/vcr & your TV, it should work with that too.

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black

There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

you may have the outputs hooked up correctly however you may need to set the inputs to the selected type of cable you are using. S video 1 cable or video input witch is an rca adapter yellow in color. you will find these setting in the "setup section" on the remote set up button will get you there and then input or source.

Record tv with Panasonic DMR-E75V DVD Player / VCR

Not sure about this, but my guess would be that you don't have the correct channel set on the DVD recorder. It has to be the channel that you use to receive your signal, NOT the channel that you necessarily want to record. For instance- if you use channel 3 to receive your signal from dish, cable etc but want to record a program on (hypothetically) CBS which is (again hypothetically) channel 24 from your dish or cable provider you would go to "Prog/Check" on the remote, highlight the "New Timer Program" line and press "Enter", and then use the numeric buttons to select channel 3 (the channel you use to receive your signal, NOT 24, the channel you want to record). You will have to program your dish/cable box to provide the channel with the content you want to record, in this case- 24.
Not sure if that was your issue, but hope this helps.

Mom was hitting buttons and now DVD plays Blue and White!

I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".

Hope this helps.
