Re: problems playing vhs tapes

Have you tried the VCR on a different TV? Could be a faulty VCR and not the TV.

With what kind of cable do you have the VCR hooked up to the tv with? Composite or Coaxial?

No video signal comes on screen when watching movies and playing games in video 1 signal

Look for any loose contacts in RC jacks/sockets/Cable. Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

1. How do I watch the same movie on both screens on the Philips PET9422 37 9 in. Dual screen DVD players? 2. I bought a refurbished model but did not get a user's manual. How do I get one?

You can do the following to watch the same moving in both the screen.
1.Connect the AV out of both the unit together. with supplied av cord

2. If you want to watch the movie played on the first unit then put the DVD/AV IN switch of first monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of second one to AV IN.Now you can watch the movie played on the first monitor on both monitors.

3. IF you want to watch movie played on the second unit then put DVD/AV IN switch of second monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of the first monitor to AV IN. Now you can watch the movie played on the second monitor on both monitors.

Tv as a whole is working but display keeps changing into excessive red then blue then green then normal then again the same in a few seconds. please provide solution

Good day!

Try to play a movie using DVD players to determine if the TV have a problem or not.If the movie you play is normal and not changing color.Your TV is in good condition and the problem is in aerial antenna or on the cable.If you are using aerial antenna you have to relocate it on the place with high signal,it is usually on the top of the roof.And if you are using a cable,please contact to your cable service hot-line.

Thank you and good luck.

I have an LG47le5400 tv and a LG blu ray player bd570. While using the player with any kind of dvd I start to get picture drop out after 30 minutes play time. The screen goes blank for 1 to 2 seconds...

I have the same problem! Viewing regular t.v. is fine, as is any VHS tape. But when playing DVD or Blu-Ray, I get dropouts. I've tried three different players and two different HDMI cables. So it must be the HDMI receiver within the actual LG t.v. Would love to know how to fix this without having to replace the television.

Without the manual !!
1)VCR INPUT:: [Cable_antenna In] the coxial screws on from "output" of cable box or ( airwave )antenna.
2) VCR output:: connect another coxial into input of TV. You should be able to keep all the other wires connected from SONY theater system.
note:: your VCR has a switch for VCR\TV. When u have a VHS tape playing a movie & switch from VCR to TV, you will see the channel that is on the VCR not the cable box\ antenna input.
example:Cable channel is on Ch.122, & your TV must be set to Ch.3 to view cable.If your VCR is set to Ch/5 you may not see that Ch.122.You will still be able to see your VHS tape when u place the VCR\TV switch back to VCR.
I am going to share wt.u a $100,000,000.00 trick:put any ch.on cable box.Switch VCR\TV to TV,change channel ON VHS tuner.When u come to the [picture] that the cable box is on,Then that is the Ch.u can see cable ON the VHS.
U owe me!!

Bought a new 42' flat - "No Program or Weak Signal"

Hi,you have not said weather you are using a scart lead(euro connecter)or an RF lead,if you are using the later don't,please connect the vcr to the tv via the scart to scart euro connecters,use a good quality scart lead(the thicker the better)as the thicker ones generally are 21 pins connected meaning it should be auto switching so as soon as you play a tape it will come straight on.
