    I will go take a look and see if the yellow cable is direct into the tv is that what you are saying...thanks I will try it

  • mrichardson Feb 03, 2008

    Okay, I went and checked and there were three plugs to go into the back...yellow, red, and white/gray...I put them into the back of the VCR in the same order as they were previusly plugged into the dvd unit I had sitting on top of it....I now have the "sound" to the movie I put ini, but still a blank/black screen...otherwise the sound is clear so at least I know it is now hooked into the Dish TV...can you give me more tips now on what to check or if all three of these are needed as they were in the dvd player??? I wrote on that problem too, but at this point prefer to get receptin on the VCR....they are from left to right yellow, red on top row and then white/gray is below it...thanks for any expertise you can offer./

I have Dish network. I want to record TV onto the VCR, but cannot get channels to record. i can playback videotapes and the record works, but cannot figure out how to get the signal to record.


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.

Hooking VCR to DISH Network Reciever Box


In order to diagnose the problem I need your help.

Have you hooked the dish receiver directly into a tv or another device and had it working?

Have you tried a different cable at all?

Have you tried pressing the ant. button on the remote or tv/vcr button?

Please update me with as much info as possible and I will figure out where the problem is coming from. thanks

I insert a tape to play and I can tell from the front panel that it is playing, but does not show up on the screen. Everything seems to be working fine, I just don't know why the tape does not show on the...


Make sure your cables are on the out jacks of the vcr to the in jacks on the tv. Also, you will have to make sure that you have selected the proper external input on your tv to where your vcr is hooked up. Example: If it is hooked up to video one on your tv then you have to select video one on the tv when watching your vcr. I hope this helped.....

Quazar Model VHQ520/VHQ540 cannot record after inst Digital Conv


You need to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the digital converter box is set to broadcast on) to record a program. The digital converter box has to be set to the channel you want to record the show from.

Sharp VCR hooked up to cable tv, i/p to vcr then out to tv.


I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

VCR shows "PLAY" on machine but doesn't show on TV


Hi,

If even the sound aside from the video is not reproduced on the TV, then your description "connect" indicates that the TV is not set to receive the audio/video signals from the VCR. Initially, pls try:
  • set the TV to Channel 3 (or 4); or
  • set the TV to A/V, Video 1 or Aux 1.
Additionally, you need to confirm how the VCR is hooked to the TV unit, bu a single coaxial cable or 3 cables with RCA connectors (yellow, red & white).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

First, have you doublechecked the video hookup? It sounds like you are using the video/audio inputs to the TV, so make sure you have VCR video out cabled to TV video input, and the TV source/input selection set to that input (video 1 etc.). If this checks out, check for a dirty video head on the VCR, though a dirty head usually results in a blank or blue video display (older VCRs, snow). You could do a process of elimination by hooking VCR to a different TV and see what is displayed then. Lastly, I assume you've tried multiple tapes, just in case a home recorded tape was incorrectly recorded?
