Will not connect to tv channel


  • Connect the existing Aerial/Cable TV
    signal (or from the Cable Box/Satellite
    Receiver {RF OUT or TO TV}) to the
    ANTENNA-IN socket on the
    recorder.

  • Use the supplied RF coaxial cable to
connect TV-OUT socket on the
recorder to the aerial input socket on
your TV (VHF/UHF RF IN).

Helpful Hint:
- Depending on how you have currently
connected your TV channel (directly from an
off-air aerial or Cable box or VCR), you will
have to disconnect some of the cables before
you make the above connection.

If you have a main aerial,plug it into the vcr then take a male to female fly lead out of the vcr into the tv.You then need to tune in the tv to the vcr and then tune in the vcr.

Sony VHS model no: SLV-SE710G isn't recording now that we have a freeview box. It just keeps changing back to L1 whenever i try to record anything!! I only want to record channels 1,2,3,4 !! HELP!!


Its hard to work out without looking at your cables. I assume the problem started when the freeview box got set up. I would guess that the aerial cable is now in the set top box instead of the vcr as the vcr sounds like it is unable to record when there's no signal (a common feature) so there shouldn't be a fault with the vcr,

just unplug the aerial from the set top box & plug it back into the vcr. Ch 1 2 3 4 should be back on vcr but set top box wont have any Ch.

most set top boxes have an aerial output, so you'll need another aerial cable, plug this into the aerial input on the vcr & ch 1 2 3 4 will be there but these will be analog (if your area has stopped analog transmission thats the prob rite there)

If you plug the matching cables from the set top box into L1 on vcr you'll be able to record digital tv as L1 use a signal from another tuner eg set top box, dvd player whereas the vcr channels 1 2 3 4 use the vcr's built in analog tuner. so it shouldn't be a biggie another cable should fix it,

Hope this is helpful, ask if you need more info

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.

    Cannot connect zenith vcr to zenith tv thru cable box


    Hello mcgillicu390,

    From your VCR you should have an (RF OUT) and an (RF IN) Connector (these also might be marked as ANT IN and ANT OUT, or CABLE IN and CABLE OUT).

    The same goes for your TV (RF IN), (ANT IN) or (CABLE IN).

    Now, take your Coaxial Cable (Cable with screw on or Push on connector with a wire in the center of it) and connect it to the TV (RF IN), take the other end of the same cable and connect it to the VCR (RF OUT).

    Then connect your cable TV set top box or antenna to the (RF IN) of the VCR.

    If you are using a cable box set your VCR and TV to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on your area)

    If you are just using the VCR and an antenna set your TV to channel 3 or (depending on your area).

    That should do it for coaxial connectivity.

    If you are using the composite video and Audio cables to connect to your TV here are the directions for that.


    Looking at the back of your TV you will see Three RCA type connectors colored as Yellow, White, and Red. Yellow is Video, White is your Left Audio, and Red is your Right Audio. They should be marked as (Video IN), (R Audio IN), and (L Audio IN). *note these markings may not be exactly like what is written, however the indicators should be close to what you are seeing.

    Now look at your VCR, you may see a lot of RCA Connectors (up to 6 of these connectors) don't worry, you are only looking for the ones that say (Video OUT) (R Audio OUT), and (L Audio OUT).

    Once you find the connectors on both pieces of equipment, take the Yellow, Red, and White tipped cables and plug the in their respective jacks Yellow tipped cable connects VCR (Video OUT) to TV(Video IN). Red tipped cable connects VCR (R Audio OUT) to TV (R Audio IN), and finally White tipped cable connects VCR (L Audio OUT) to TV (L Audio IN),

    Once the cables are connected you will be able to use the composite selection on your remote to view the images from your VCR, the VCR in this case will be acting as the tuner for your TV with out you having to set the TV to channel 3 or 4, you will just have to use the AUX or whatever setting on you remote that allows the composite video to display.

    I hope this helps,

    Thank you,

    Connecting VCR/DVD combo


    If you are able to you can connect to the RF connector (F Type Conncetor) on the TV. This should work. The layout is from the VCR (RF to TV) to the TV antenna F type connector from your Cable box to the Antenna in of the VCR that way you have cable through the VCR, and access to you VCR and DVD all controlled by the Cable and VCR remotes (set TV to Channel 3, set VCR to Channel 3) and use the Cable box as the tuner, Use the TV remote to switch between Cable and VCR inputs then use the VCR remote to switch between the VCR and DVD input.

    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)
