JVC AV42PD20ES HI, our tv was working fine until an engineer came and connected our video recorder, we now have the vcr, sat digi box and a dvd recorder connected, it appeared to be working fine until we turned it on the next morning and were met with red glittery screen and then it turned black, we have sound ok. Sometimes if you leave the tv on the picture appears and seems to be ok! The engineer came back and said out Tv was faulty and we needed to buy a new one, all was ok before he did the connection work. I do hope you can help. Capprii

    HI, yes, it looks red and glittery for a while and then the screen goes black, do you think is can be repaired?



    Thanks for taking the trouble to reply.

I was able to create the same condition on my plasma tv by disconnecting the upper and lower y-drives. only red pixels are lit up and it looks like glitter.

    Yeah it can be repaired but it's not worth it. The parts and labor would cost very close to a new tv. Most technicians won't even look at it without having you pay them first. Maybe some nice technician can give you a quote over the phone if you tell him/her the symptoms.

    i would go with lcd's next time...they last and have been around much longer.

How Can I record a TV program using my SD-V295KU. Where Can I chose the chanel number? Can You hepl me please? This is a DVD Video Player & Video Cassette Recorder.


The SD-V295KU has no tuner. You will need to connect it to a set top tuner, a cable or satellite receiver box. One of the digital-to-analog converters would work for OTA programs from a digital station. The basic ones that were available with the government coupon give SD output; this is sufficient since composite video is limited to SD.

Then connect the composite (audio and video) out from that box to the DVD/VCR composite in (the rightmost jacks). Then set the channel on the box and record content on Line 1 (Press Input Select on the DVD/VCR's remote to get to that input after you set the recording speed.)

Most TVs do not have a composite out option so the tuner in the TV can't be used to feed the program to the DVD/VCR.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I need instructions to record from vhs video player to dvd recorder


Connect the vcr to the dvd recorder via scart. Set TV to your usual dvd channel and power on dvd. Power on vcr and scroll through input channels (AV etc) on dvd recorder until you find the signal from vcr. Prepare the recorder ready to record, then play the vcr and start the dvd to record.

You indicated you have a DVD PLAYER, not DVD recorder. You cannot record on to a DVD on a player, you need to buy a DVD recorder/player. Unlike a VCR which stands for Video Cassett Recorder which can record and playback video. DVD recorder technolgy much more complicated.

Tv has only snowy screen. Used the remote to


What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

I'm trying to get my dvd recorder and vcr hooked up to my new flat screen tv. How do I connect them and what channel do I put my tv on (flatscreens don't have channel 3 or 4) to recognize the dvd recorder...


DVD players do not connect using regular cable connections Your flat screen TV should have separate Audio and Video connections. These are the connections that you should use to connect your VCR and DVD player. If you have a combo unit, that is a single unit that has both DVD and VHS in one box, you might be able to get your VCR to work on the cable connection. However your DVD will not be able to work as the cable connection doesn't allow enough information to pass through. If you go to your local Audio Video store and tell them what you want to connect they should have the cables you need for less than $10.00. Good luck.
