Question about RCA DRC8335

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?

Turn off the progressive scan mode?


is this question about the progressive scan when going to dvd mode more than likely the switch to control your p scan is on the back of your vcr/dvd player near the center look on the back and flick the switch to off usually the switches are just black moving left and right if not go into your menu and look for progressive scan mode if its not directly on the menu it is more than likely in the settings folder.Also if your remote is like the one i posted just click the p.scan button

Hello

If you do not have a Progressive Scan television, the picture will be

distorted in Progressive Scan mode. To reset the unit to its normal
factory settings:

1* Eject any disc from the DVD disc tray.

2* Power the unit off and back on.

3* Press and hold the FF and REW keys on the front panel for

five seconds.
4* Power the unit off and back on to return to normal operation.
OK.

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.

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

Progressive scan


I had the same problem once and the solution is to reboot the DVD player. to do this you need to unplug the unit for 3 or more minutes and then you will have to go through the setup process again but everything should work fine and interlaced (not progressive) should be the dvd format again.

Can't go above Channel 20 when input on Video.


I was told by Sanyo and Toshiba that I will have to have a Sanyo remote in order to change the tuner from TV to CATV which he said is causing me to be unable to get above a certain channel and also to change the settings in order to use the Progressive scan cables, so I have emailed a remote finder site and they are trying to find a Sanyo remote for me.

DVD player wont show picture


to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.

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!
