Question about Sony SLV-940HF VCR

1 Answer

DVD/VCR combo Hi...I'm really hoping you can help me! We have purchased 2 different TVs and 3 different DVD/VCR players and still having the problem of the VCR not playing clearly. Our current equipment is a Dynex LCD flat (Best Buy's brand) and a Sony combo player and when you put a tape in, it will play for a few seconds then it appears to start having tracking problem then the sound quits...then to complete static then "no signal" displays on the screen. This last for a few seconds then the picture/ eventually comes back, but this repeats over and over. I have tried countless different tapes, so I know its not the tapes. I realize we purchased an expensive TV ($250), but the Sony player is pretty good, mid range ($130), and after 3 attempts I just want this to work!!!! This set up is for the kids play room and all they want to do is watch Power Rangers and Barney!!!...which of course is on VHS!!!! I've returned equipment to Target 2 times and Best Buys once..... If you could suggest a remedy for this problem OR suggest some equipment (inexpesive) the would work for us, I will be so grateful!!!! Please help before they send me to the crazy house!!! Thanks!!!

My DVD/VHS combo remote control no longer activates the unit. I have replaced the batteries (2 times). What should I do next?


Hi,

Good day. You might need to purchase another remote control so that you can access your dvd / vhs combo. I'm afraid that the remote is already broken due to normal use. You can also try to have a technician to check it for you but i suggest you bring it to a samsung authorized service center. Hope this give you a bit of help. Have a great day.

Im looking for codes for a sylvania tv


The codes to try for Sylvania TVs are 0054 0030 0171.

The manual and codes are available from the One For All support site: http://www.oneforall-na.com/remote.php?type=URC%203021 . The link for codes is at the bottom right of the page.

However, most remotes are limited to codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed. If your TV is newer than your remote, then you may need to get a newer remote.

I hope this helps.

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo


With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

Hook up tv/dvd


All you need is A/V cable. These are yellow, white, and red. If you have an old model TV that doesn't have these, you can get an RF modulator from any electronics store, which will enable you to connect the DVD/VCR combo.
