I am to set up my Phillips DVD/VCR. It is hooked up to a Phillips TV. The instructions say to press the DVD button on the remote control, then press theSet Up/Menu button and the main menu will show up on the screen. I am not getting the main menu.
Do I have to have the TV on a certain channel?
The model numbers for the TV and DVD player are: DVP3340V/17
1. Connect the composite AV cable on the DVD player's DVD/VCR OUT and on the TV's AV2 or on the side. Select AV2 on the TV by pressing the SOURCE button on the TV remote control. Select SIDE if you connected it to the side. When the DVD player is on and set to DVD mode, you will see the Philips logo on your TV screen. You can then put it on VCR mode to set it up.
2. FOR RECORDING PURPOSES...since your DVD/VCR is tunerless, you will need an external tuner in the form of cable box or satellite box. You have to connect the cable/satellite box to the DVD/VCR also using composite cable. Connect another set of composite cables from the cable/satellite box's AV out and to the DVD/VCR's VCR IN.
Then you can follow the DVD/VCR's instructions for setting it up for recording.

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:
1) Turn on the unit 2) Insert VHS tape 3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW 4) Using remote, press VCR 5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording. 6)Using remote, press DVD 7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording
When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!
You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.
Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.
Hi, I am not sure if you unplugged all the cables from your VCR to your TV, If so double check the hook up. When you unplugged the POWER to the VCR the memory was lost. Try and find the menu or set up on the remote. Again the audio out from the VCR needs to be hooked to the audio in on the TV and the video out from the VCR needs to be hooked up to the video in on the TV. Keep trying !!!
1. Switch your TV to Video mode (the one you use to watch VCR tapes) 2. Press VCR on the Allegro remote control. 3. Press Setup/Menu button. 4. The top item in the main Menu on the screen is Clock. 5. Follow the instructions on the screen using the gray triangular buttons on the remote to navigate
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.
All you should have to do is press the dvd button on your remote to go to the dvd player. Then press the vcr button to go back to the cable tv, if it is hooked up the same way as mine. And you can tell if it is by putting in a vhf tape and you can start watching it play. Otherwise you will need to press the input button on your tv remote until you see the vcr or dvd main screen. from there press the dvd button on your remote for the dvd player or the vcr button for your vhf. After you are done with watching your movies and wish to go back to the cable or tv programs use the tv remote and press input until the shows come back on
Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?
If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on
which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one
at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR
(not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR
remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure
your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the
VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.
If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown
on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape,
select the channel you want to record and press the record button.
If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the
TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change
When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back
onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press
the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view
