Re: no picture

There are so many different ways of hooking up video components nowadays that you shouldn't feel bad about having this trouble. Can you describe how you have the cables connected and what input on the TV is selected?

Sony SLV-ED818 black and white picture

Is the TV a USA model? In which case it will use the NTSC system of colour and not the PAL one. You will need to check if the TV can be switch to PAL system for DVD or if the DVD can output it as NTSC. Or you need a convertor box.

You're going to need to use your menu button and do a channel scan.
When it completes use the save option if present and exit the menu.

Do you have a picture with just normal playback of VCR? If the answer is no, then it sounds like the head might need cleaning. Use Servisol video 40 see image below:

Troubleshooting vcr

Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]

Durabrand dvd/video combi

There could be at least two ways to hook in your VCR. The common way is to hook your VCR inline (between) the sat box output (RF or antenna) and the TV RF/antenna input. This will allow you to play the VCR/DVD & record whatever channel the sat box is set to. I'm not real familiar with the newer sat boxes, but I assume they output one channel at a time, thus, you can only record that channel. On the older cable or outdoor antenna systems, you could record one channel while watching another. Perhaps some sat boxes have this capability. You might do a Google search with the box Model number to see if an online manual can be found. The other hookup possibility is if your TV set has audio/video inputs & outputs. Hook these to the matching input/output of the VCR/DVD.
