Getting regular channels to come in on VCR/DVD unit after channels scanned

I have gone through the scan process and the local channels came up. When I went to live mode, the channels were gone. I went back to the channel setup and the channels were still listed but the small sample screen did not show the channels coming in either. My father likes to record from regular tv and I can not (for the life of me) get the unit to do what he wants it to do. HELP!

Try pressing the input button on the top row and go over to the right icon for the tuner input, to make sure it has not gotton switched to one of the other inputs, front or back.
You might try completely unpluggin the power for
30seconds or so to get the deck's computer to reset;
If this doesn't help call the service number and get the
THOMPSON number to make sure it is not a defect in the
unit. SOunds like folks are sending alot of these back to the
manufacturer? Mine was tollerable for its glitches until my soon to be 2yr old's favorite tape is now stuck in it !!!!!!! We have only played about 6or 7 tapes in the thing in 3months?

How can i tune all my sky channels to my dvd/vcr combo box


Hi sounds like the remote may be in the wrong mode , you can scan channels into the sky box or the TV/combo.
Make sure you are scanning them into the box not the combo.

Unable to operate recorder at all.


When you are turning the recorder on it is blocking the signal for cable going to the TV. Your TV will need to be on channel 3 or 4 depending on what the dvd/vcr player channel output is set to. This is why your tv is asking you to re-scan. It is losing the video signal because the dvd/vcr is taking over. The reason why the vcr with the button on the remote is because the vcr button is changing the function of the buttons on the remote to vcr. Even though the dvd/vcr is one unit they still will act like two seperate components independent of each other. They have seperate power buttons and the dvd player part may need to be hooked up seperately with rca cables to work.

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.

Since they switched to digital TV, my VCR/DVD player will not record a TV program.


The DR-MV150B has both a digital tuner and analog tuner. Since the digital conversion you more likely have not run a channel scan for the new digital channels. Plugging in a digital tuner would work, but is unnecessary. What you probably have to do is run the 'auto scan' feature through the recorders menu. Hit "Home" button go to the "TV" icon and select "Auto Scan". It will take a few minutes, but recorder will scan for digital channels and memorize them.

Can not play video in dvd/vcr player


Well yes whether it be a DVD/VCR it has to be played on the AV-Channel. If you don't have that yet just scan your tv via remote control, but do it manually because automatic skips the av channel. otherwise check that the video itself is not damaged

No Channels


Hook you VCR/DVD up with A/V cable. The Red. White. and yellow cables. When you do that you use the Television remote and click the TV/Video button to select the input you wired the A/v cable to from the VCR/DVD.. Then Program your VCR/DVD channels. This should work great.

Not able to scan stations


I don't understand why you would bother to scan channel when you have directv or dishnetwork???
directv or Dishnetwork required their units in order to watch any channel,which means:
A. Depending on your TV setting,if you use RF connection from your basic directv to the tv,you would have to leave the TV on Ch.3 or Ch.4.to view the rest of the channels,you have to change it from the directv or dishnetwork box. You are NOT able to scan the rest of the channels from the TV,bottom line!!
If you have comcast or your local cable provider,once you have activated,you could use the RF signal coming out from the wall plate straight to the tv and go to TV auto programming,it will auto scan the available channels for you.
Don't waste your time on directv.
If you are thinking about recording from your BASIC directv or dishnetwork box, you would connect SAT. signal from the wall plate to the directv box,then use composite video/audio output and connect straight to your VCR/DVD player under composite video/audio input. Now you could record the viewing channel to the VHS.
Good luck!

scanning the channels would not have done damage, the tv probably just sensed the unplugging of the power as a ''spike'' in the power line. Just let it sit unplugged for a while and then plug it back in, should turn back on again. also, if you are on cable or such, the scanning of the channels should actually be done, in ordr to see all available channels when the vcr is not in use, or if not, just set it to channel 3 or 4 to see it through the cable box. ps.. In the future, don't buy tv/vcr / dvd comos, the main reason why most peole buy those things is so the kids will leave the bigger tv set alone, problem with that is- kids will be kids, and sooner than later they will stick something the player's slot and screw the unit up- that leaves the tv by itself, which they will not want to see if the player is not working. so you are out of both and the kids are back taking the bigger tv away from you. best thing is always to buy separate units (vcr/dvd player combo's or separate units are usually cheaper to buy separately along with a dedicated tv than one of those all in one units. something goes wrong, just fix or buy a replacement for the system. and you get to keep your own tv.
