Retuning a VCR

I have recently acquired a Finlandia VHS-HQ Vcr but need to tune it to new local stations. I have no handbook with instructions, and cannot find any model number on it!
Can you please help.

Re: Retuning a VCR

If you have the original remote, find the menu page that sets up the tuner and either set it manually or use the auto tune feature. If not, get a universal remote with a menu button and do the same.
Finlandia is just a brand name, I'm sure teh VCR is made by one of the usual manufacturers and will work with a universal remote but you have to tediously try all the codes until you find the right one.

Most likely you will need a scan converter to change your signal from a Video to a VGA. The signals are mismatched.

Yes a VCR can recorrd another program of your favourite channel while you are watching another. This is the reason why a tuner is incorporated into the VCR. You will need to tune the VCR tuner accordingly so that this function can be made use of . Also you can use the timer too record any TV program when you are out of house/station. I think that must have been what you had in mind? good day

Finlandia VHS, No Manual

Without the model number nobody on Fixya can send you a manual. Though I can tell you that it is normal for the VCR to shut down after being on pause for 10 mins. I seem to recall that Finlandia where made by Ferguson for Granada TV rental company. Who don't now operate.
