Question about Toshiba D-R400

1 Answer

After I record a TV program there is no video put there is audio

I cannot get a picture when I record. The sound is there but no picture. I am not sure if I have it connected correctly. There is not enough information on the set up for my configuration. I have a receiver and am trying to run it through it. Also on my TV I have Video and Audio "in" but no "out". How does the video from the TV get out to the DVD recorder.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

DVD-VR357 RECORDS VIDEO (FROM VIDEO1) FROM COX DVR, BUT NO AUDIO


well there the first thing i would check is the audio connection..

basically if you are recording from a playing media, like a dvf player

it would be like this

audio and video out from the dvd player to the inputs in the recorder.. then the out puts from the recorder to the input in the tv... (just a refrence)

upload your diagram, and state exactly what you want to record from.. if its the tv or another media type..

If its from the tv,, lets say you got cable and you want to record from cable,, Its

connect the out put from the cable box to the input of the dvr, then the out from the dvr to the input of the tv..

or

if its from an arial

connect the arial to the dvr,, now connect the dvr to the tv,, I guess you got the picture of what i am saying..

Basically all the out put from the media you wish to record from to the DVR and then from the DVR to the Tv..

Cannot get picture/menu on screen!


Hi,

The Sony recorder is connected to the TV via the RCA cables (for both audio and video)? How many inputs does your TV have? One cable input and one RCA line in (making a total of two? Did you eliminate the possibility that the recorder might be defective by trying it on another TV?

I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?


Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

I have sound but no picture on the screen.. What did i do wrong


Hello sir, hi, please check the video cable. If you are using the three color audio/video cable, the yellow one goes to the yellow input of the TV to the yellow output of the DVD recorder. Then check the TVs audio video settings, the TV should be in the video channel, if there are several video channel, check where the video is coming in. Make sure that the yellow cable is good. you can swap several cables to check.
If your TV is component input, put the red green and blue wires to their respective color port, one end is on the DVD recorder, and the other on the TV. make sure your cables are good. Do the same thing with the S-video and HDMI cable. if your TV has this.

Can only record sound not picture?


Make sure the Yellow RCA Cable is plugged into the Yellow port on the DVD recorder. People often try to plug these in without good lighting & will plug the White audio into the Yellow video ports. Also, check to make sure they are in the correct color ports at the TV as well.

Yellow = Video
White = Audio
Red = Audio

Another way to test the cable is to bring a smaller TV in next to the main TV. Use your RCA cables coming from the OUTPUT of your main TV that you want to record from & connect the other end of the cables to the INPUT of the smaller TV just to see if the cable is passing video. The cable could just be bad & you need to buy a new cable. Hope this helps.

I have a vhs/hq ..i have visual but no audio for a program i recorded last thursday. I tried recording from tv now and still no sound but picture. I played other movies or previous recorded things in vhs...


Try first to ensure that the scart lead at the back of the set or any AV leads that you are using are secure and tight.

Sometimes if the scart lead is not pushed home correctly it will lose audio. Try then to record a sample of video and try playback.
If there is still no sound try another scart lead first.

It will be a process of elimination I'm afraid.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

Go video VR4940 VCR video recording has sound but no picture


You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

Sounds like if you are getting the right Video and not audio then the audio are hooked in wrong. Unless you are on SAP (Second audio program) in this case take it off of Sap. If you are getting the sound that you are looking at once you change channels to view another program, then it should be easy. Just change audio jacks back to AV1, 2, 3 etc depending on which one you are using. Hope this helps!
