Hey my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see where you want to run the SanyoDVW-6000 DVD/VCR Player to the DISH Network receiver. You can run the SanyoDVD/VCR directly to the TV and pick the channel you want to record and it willrecord the channel showing.
The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR. The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV. The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.
It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input. & VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.
The vcr is fine.
buy a cleaning tape. people say dry cleaner tapes wear out the heads, but it fixed my problem when my vcr only showed snow. but try a wet tape first. follow the instructions that came with the tape and run it a few times.
You might have an INPUT going to an INPUT, or vice versa. Always make sure that an INPUT goes to an OUTPUT and an OUTPUT goes to an INPUT. If this is not the problem, then you have a faulty cable somewhere, test it and if faulty, replace it. Good luck to you!
bring the tv out to the main tv and hook it up to that connection to determine if it's the TV or the connection. Or try hooking up a VCR to the tv while the TV is set to CH 3. Do you get a blank picture or a snowy Picture?
Such a simple job. First check if the cables are connecred properly 1. Audio OUT from VCR to AUDIO IN of TV. 2. Video OUT from VCR to VIDEO IN of TV
Then switch the TV ON. Select 'Video' on the TV/Video selection button on the TV's remote control. Your TV screen will show a display like 'Video' or 'AV' Play a cassette and you should be able to see the picture... Happy Viewing.
Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.
Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok 1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr 2. then other scart from vcr into tv 3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr. you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr. If the channels change then your on the right av channel. Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through. You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead. say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems. Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
