Re: dvd/vcr combination

An easy first step is to check and make sure that you don't have any other rf interference. make sure that all radios, laptops, pcs, routers, etc.. .are not nearby. they can cause interference. A second idea requires knowing how you have it connected and what other types of equipment you have connected to the tv itself

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized

Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

How to hook up vcr and dvd together ?

|DVD| -> |VCR| -> |TV|

1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)

2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.

(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)

3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)

You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.

If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.

Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.

Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.
