Re: vcr taping using rca

Connect the VCR's audio/video outputs to the TV's audio/video inputs. These are the red,white,yellow connectors. get the same colored type cables and it is real easy. Switch the TV to the corresponding input selection. Of course, the signal source needs to be connected to the VCR's input

I bought the vcr quasar vhq 940 used and it keeps spitting the tape back out. How do I fix it?

It means the unit has either a bad belt or belts or a bad drive wheel--if the tape goes in the unit opens the cassette and feeds the tape out--if broken or loose belt it will not make it fully out against the video heads and will spit tape out.

Used to be by model number belt packs with a idler included to replace all at one time.

Use or hours does not matter as if the unit sits a long time or is rarely used the belts and idler (rubber) will degrade and cause problems.

Black and white on my tapes

Is the vcr sitting directly on top of, or underneath the TV? If so, this could be causing magnetic/static interference, and that's not good. It's good practice not to have anything that uses tape near speakers or TV's. Hope this helps.

Another possibility is the signal you are recording is coming from a cable box/digital cable box/satellite cable box. Try recording using the RCA cable inputs and outputs, instead of 75 Ohm cable, if applicable.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?

The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

My quasar vcr does not show my tapes clearly

I should go inside and clean it by hand, using Cotton buds and Servisol VIDEO 40.
Clean any surface the tape touches. Make certain it's dry before trying a tape again.

If there is no coaxial cable input on VCR, then it should work by RCA cables. Which is the Yellow , red/white cables. On the back of the VCR. Take a set of RCA cables Yellow for video, red/white for audio to the VCR output.Then do the same to the Television input. Next use the television remote to turn the TV to Video input this will allow you to view what's playing on VCR. Then take another set of RCA cables and reverse the first setup. Attached Cables to VCR input and cables to TV Output. This will allow you record what's on television. Now make sure the cable is screwed to coaxial cable input on television. This will able you to access cable programming on television, view vhs tapes, and record programming directly from television.Good Luck

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""]

I need to find out how to record on theVHQ940. I bought a used VHQ940 without a manual or remote. My son used a universal remote to turn it on to my Magnavox TV, but don't know how to program it to record. I need a manual.

Problem is with a Quasar VHS 960

This is probably part of the cassette carriage (the unit that loads & ejects the tape). You could possibly post a couple of pics- of the loose pieces, and the carriage mechanism- perhaps a tech here could point to where the pieces fit. Hopefully, nothing on the carriage (or elsewhere) is broken. VCRs of the last 10+ years are made to break easily- thin metal, thin weak plastic.
