New dvd/vhs player but old tv

I bought the RCA new vhs/dvd player combo(DRC8335) with built in tuner.
However, I have a G26285PN RCA TV which I bought in 1990.

The VHS player I had would play my tapes when I set the TV to channel 3.
But this does not work for my new player.

My problem is I cannot get the TV input to change to the dvd channel so I can program the dvd player and play my dvd's.

Any suggestions? Do I need to get a new TV?

The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

Do they make a DVD/VHS Combo with a built in decoder that will connect to my Analog TV using only a coaxil cable?


99.99% of the combo units that have a tuner inside have been phased out.
You do need an external tuner to get cable through to the combo unit. The only combo units that I have seen that has a tuner in it already and hooks up to the coax is one that is a vhs/dvd RECORDER and not just a vhs/dvd PLAYER. You pay extra for the built in tuner and also for the dvd recording features.

Jail bars in picture on analog cable tv only


this kind of intermittent noise has to be researched in the bench specially because the lines are there and then go out. it can be any component false contact, or solder joins.

Poor viewing with VCR


how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

By the process of elimination I determined that the 1998 TV I was working with was to old to accept digital signals. Thanks any way D. G.

Can't view DVD's burned from the tv on a DRC8335 RCA DVD recorder


If you do not finalize the disc then you can not play it back. Go back to your instruction manual and look under 'setting options'. There should be a choice to 'finalize disc before ejecting'. The recorder will not finalize a disc until it knows when you are done recording, so you have to tell it somehow.
