Re: svhs

S video connections the one with 4 pins on it and a square plastic pin in the middle only go into a special connector on the monitor or TV set and if you have an S video input on the TV thats the way it works. If you have regular video out of the deck and no S-video jack on the TV and no special input selection on the remote or input button your out of luck. You cant adapt this easily as S-video is luminance and chromance on seperate channels and regular video is all on one wire.

Why am i getting No picture only audio when vcr connected to tv?

If you are using 3 RCA cables to connect your VCR to your TV, make sure you have the video cable (usually yellow) well connected at both ends. Video Out from VCR to Video In on your TV (also usually yellow).
Also, depending on the brand of VCR, make sure you don't have an option for external speakers connected. This would eliminate the video too.
Hope this helps.

Panasonic DMR - HW100ebk.......... with both coax

So you have looped the coaxial through the Panasonic to the TV and have a HDMI from the Panasonic to the TV, right. When you turn on the DMR select the appropriate HDMI connection with the TV remote and you will be OK.

Videorecorder videodrum replaced

I would say that it's because you haven't used the original test tape. Where the recordings that play up done on the model before the problems started? If so then that would prove that the tape is just slightly off. I can't see it being a fake head, nobody would make any money doing fake VHS heads these days!

Having trouble hooking old VCR up to new LG TV and Integra Receiver. Feel like I'm missing a step...

Look at the back of the tv. What is it labeled at where you plugged the VCR into. Should probably say composite in. After that's verified, go into the tv menu and make sure you have selected composite input. Should be no need for any settings on VCR, it has to be settings on tv

He svhs outputs two vertical white lines on blue screen, what does this indicate please

It sounds like you are describing a test signal used to help tune the vcr to a TV. There should be a switch somewhere marked "test signal". Find it and switch it to off. It should go then. It could be on the back near the aerial connections.

What cables do i use to connect to the tv...the vcr has yellow and white areas to connect and the tapes, but i do not get a picture when i play it

First off, you need to hook up audio and video by using either an A/V cable or a coaxial to connect the VCR player to the TV, for the A/V cable, the yellow, white and red jacks are coded, match the jacks up with the wires, put one end of the A/V cable to the VCR player OUTPUT jacks and the other end to the INPUT jacks in back of TV. For the coaxial cable, connect the OUT TO TV or OUTPUT jack of the VCR to the ANT. IN or INPUT JACK of the TV. Connect the power cables of both units to wall outlets, and then you're set. Good luck to you!

LXI VHS - No Video on TV

Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

Tv/vdr/cable box

Your hookup is correct- Your VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4, to match the cable box.

Also, the VCR channel output needs to be matched to the TV. If VCR menu options are displayed on the TV then this part is right. If not, then set either the VCR or TV to the correct channel.
