Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?

If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR (not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.

If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape, select the channel you want to record and press the record button.

If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change channels.

When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view your recording.

Dvd picture works, vcr picture does not work. Sound works from both. is this a problem with the machine or the set up?


Try a cleaning tape in the VCR. If the pictures both come ut of the same connector then the VCR may be in need of cleaning. Also can you see a picture 'through' the vcr, if you wanted to record on the vcr? Have you tried recording?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.

Recording from my vcr to the dvd hardrive


It may be that the tape you are trying to record from is copy-protected. You will then get a "scrambled" picture

Proscan vcr psvr70


Sounds like it's wired up wrong...try this:
take cable line to VCR in, VCR out to cable/receiver box(if you have one) then box to TV...it sounds like the vcr is getting the channels from the box and not the vcr...you will need to have the vcr scan the channels (round in the settings menu) You will also be able to watch and record 2 different things.

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes


All you can do by yourself unlesss you are a tech. Is run a head cleaner tape through it. It sound like a dirty head to me. Here is something a lot of people do not know, The video head and the audio head in a VCR are two separate heads. thats why you can loose picture and not sound. Best taken apart and cleaned manually with rubbing alchol but not advisable if you are not experienced due to high voltage and if cleaning improperly you can damage the unit worse. Good Luck

Picture is jittery and voice is garbled with noise in background


I had the same problem recently with a Panasonic PV - V4521 which has worked for years for me. I tried everything including cleaning the heads with Q-Tips and pure alcohol. Nothing improved. I tried tape head cleaners. Nothing. So finally one day, as I was unscrewing the cables, this VCR fell down onto the bottom of my foot and drew blood. Now remember, I had been trying to fix this thing for at least 10 days.
So, I dragged it up and pounded the top of the VCR until the top caved in. Then, I opened my front door and tossed it so hard against the floor of my patio that pieces went flying everywhere. I gathered up the pieces and the twisted VCR, put it in a box, and tosses it real hard into the dumpster. It's fixed. I have no more problem with it.
