Re: how to change systems on the Old telefunken MP204 TV

Sounds like your vcr out is chan 3 or 4 try switching the tiny switch to like 4 and then put your tv on chan 4... make sure your afc swith on the tv is on also if the set is not digital fine tune in 4 with the knob.

I have an old school Curtis mathes TV for my son Xbox 360 can not get right channel no code works any suggestion

The XBOX360 does not connect via any RF channels (TV aerial). It connects through either the analogue video & audio inputs e.g. SCART or PHONO connectors, or via HDMI (which will not be supported on your old TV). If you have connected via the SCART or PHONO type then you can select 'AV' or 'EXT' via the remote to get input from the SCART/PHONO.

You need to give more info. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

We had our ps2 hooked up to an old rca tv and was using the satelite remote for it channel had to be on 00 for the ps2 to work. We got a new tv and hav moved the rca and ps2 to another place but don't...

New tv's don't use dead channels like 00 anymore for there inputs.. They use sources to change from different inputs.. Make sure you have your ps2 hooked up into input plugs on the tv and then turn it on the ps2 then look on the new controller for the tv & find a button saying source .. Press that until you see your ps2 on the screen. If not check your connections try again.

Universal remote works for basics but won't change input


good day , what button can you see infront of your TV screen?

Not familiar with this model but if you'll manage to locate a button marked as "TV/AV" or "AV" press this button until it the display switch to A/V mode (audio/video). Or if this is a really old model, from Tuner mode or channel model. set the channel station to 1 then press the " - channel " button and see if it will change from tuner mode to A/V mode

JVC television-lost old remote-have universal /can't add channels

I don't have an answer for your question.

However, I do have a suggestion. You can hook up a vcr to your tv, then put the tv on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the vcr is set for) and change the channels through your vcr. You have to have the cable go first to your vcr and then out to the tv.

Son pressed something and now DVD won't work

well there could be two things going on here that i can think of, one the scart lead between the dvd and the tv is not i properly vica versa for the dvd player, the other thing is the button which changes the av channels could have been pushed so simply push the button while the dvd os on and find the av channel, the button looks like an arrow going right hope it helps.

TV, freeview, DVD and video set up.

Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.

Connecting PS2 to an old TV

Plug the Red, Yellow, and White cords into their respective "IN" ports on the VCR. Run a coax line from the "out" port of the VCR to the coax port on TV. Some VCRs require you to tune to channel 3 or "LINE" which is typically the channel before 2 for this to work. To make things easier, you may want to purchase a modulator. This would allow you more easily set this up. The Mini-modulators aren't very expensive and can be purchased at virtually any electonics store.
