Question about VCRs
When I turn on the power for my VCR the TV image disappears, meaning
I can't tape off the TV. It worked fine for about eight years, then became an intermittent problem, now a seemingly permanent one. What can I do to fix this?
The vcr is connected in between the antenna (or cable) and the tv, and
when it turns on its tuner takes control of the signal. Either:
1) press the VCR/TV button on the VCR to let the signal go stright thru
2) Tune the VCR to the channel you want to watch and set the TV to the VCR's input.
3) If you use a coax cable connection to the TV, try switching the VCR to the other channel (3 or 4, switch in the back)
4) Change the TV connection to RCA cables on the A/V inputs.
Hope Ya Fix It!
