VCR doesn't work

Someone connected our VCR through the DVD to the TV. He said we should just go to Channel 3 (TV) and the VCR will play. It won't. What am I missing here?

The DVD has to be off so that it allows the VCR signal to pass through. Also make sure the VCR's output is set to channel 3 (little tiny slide switch in the back by the VCR's antenna jacks).

How can I play my Emerson vcr/dvd dual deck to play on my sylvania tvk139k with no remote?


Try pressing the channel down button repeatedly until the lowest channel is displayed. Now keep going to see if it changes to an external port like F1 or R1 If that won't get you a picture try going to shopjimmy website to get a new remote.

Need to select proper input on the TV when playing DVDs. For VCR, select channel 3 or 4.

For cable TV or satellite TV , change channels on the proprietary box and record channel 3 or 4 on VCR. You can also hookup RCA cables (3) from cable box etc. to VCR. Select LINE input on VCR if connecting RCA cables.

I cannot get the Vcr/ Dvd to play


The TV needs to be on channel 3 not channel 3.1 because is a digital channel and the signal from the VCR is analog. Tune the TV to channel 3 to get the analog video from the VCR.

It says "play" and my tv is on Ch.3 but there is nothing playing. I tried turning my direct tv off but it made no difference.


do you want to record programs on your vcr? connect the out to tv cable from your dir/tv box to antenna or cable in on the vcr, then connect the cable from out to tv on the vcr to antenna or cable in on the tv, you'll have to select channel 3 on the tv to get the vcr to show a picture and you will need to select channel 3 on your vcr to record the channel selected on your dir/tv box. confusing?thanks and good luck.

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.

    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.

    Cheers!!!!

    I have a samsung dvd vcr combo connected to a jvc tv but when i have press play i get no screen for either video or dvd the dvd runs but no recpetion


    If you are connecting the dvd/vcr combo to the tv with coax cable first make sure the tv is on channel 3 and also make sure you have the samsung dvd/vcr combo on channel 3 by using the remote that came with the samsung. You should get picture and sound then if not try channel 4 on tv instead of channel 3. If that doesn't work try to put the samsung on channel 4 as a last option to try. This is only recommended if the combo is hooked to tv with coax cable out of combo to in on tv. Make sure coax is plugged into the out jack on combo and in on tv.
