Question about RCA VR348 VCR

1 Answer

Can not tape from cable, blue screen

RCA VR509. another web page put my model and VR348 on the same line, so hoping they are somewhat alike. I had no problem taping until I
hook onto cable. I changed my VCR to channel 3 to go with channel 3
on the cable imput. So I can turn on the VCR and see the channels change on cable and have a picure. But I can not change channels on the
VCR as if I wanted to tape CH 7 and watch CH3. And when I press rec
on the remote, I am not taping anything. Just snow. So I can not tape
anything. Previous taped items playback just fine.

    If I leave the VCR on channel 3, I can watch any channel that the

    cable will get. But I can tape nothing. in the days before cable,

    I could change channels on the VCR and view different channels.

    But the auto channel on the VCR only brings up Ch 3 and Ch8.

    When I see what is on CH 8, it is a blue screen.

If you have a cable box connected now, leave the VCR on channel 3 all the time and use the channels from the cable box.
The way this should be connected is cable in to cable box and cable out to VCR, VCR output to TV IN.
Hope this works for you.

How can I make sure my Samsung SSC-1280 & SSC17WEB are recording? how can I view the recordings?


Regular rca cables should work. Connect from "video out" on the vcr to your monitor.

I have a panasonic pv 9451- is there a way to reset the auto programming for the channels? can i reset the vcr programmed information entirelyu and start anew?i think i programmed out channel 3 which is...


Should be able to use the remote to access the VCR menu, and setup the auto programming. If not automatically, then you'll have to do each channel manually. Just check all your options in the menu.

Usually all vcr's have the option of channel 3 or 4.

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.

No video out


Hi, All I get is a blue screen.  It does accept the tape, and I do get normal audio from the tape. I believe that I do get the words "play"  "fast", etc..., displayed on the t.v. screen  So I guess you could say there is that for a video signal - otherwise I would just get a static screen - I just get no video signal from the tape. Not sure what kind of soda (i.e. coke, pepsi, etc). Thanks again, Frank

VCR, DVD, TV Connection


first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

Diagonal lines


Hi It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set. Hope this helps, good luck!
