Question about Televison & Video
I just bought a 42' HD Flat screen TV for my family. When we try to play VCR tapes, we get an error message: "No Program or Weak Signal" flashes on the screen. We are able to watch just a few seconds of a movie then it goes black and the above alert comes on the screen.
We can watch a DVD movie no problem, it just the VCR. We can't record anything with a VCR tape because we get the same message. We did not have any problems with our old TV which we replaced with the new JVC.
Any advice would be helpful because my daughter cannot watch some of her programs.

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.
