How to change video line without a remote

We're trying to connect a new Sony dvd/vcr unit to an old zenith television. spoke with sony and cabling seems to be done correctly. neither a vcr tape or dvd was playable. also tried setting the clock to no avail. they asked me to make certain television was set for video 1 or 2. but without the old remote for this tv, we don't seem to be able to do this through the "menu" button.

any suggestions?

    Have a 1995 model zenith sr2552s and it will not accept signal from vcr or dvd. There is some question as to whether auxillary channel is blocked out with parental control, have tried to access thinking pin for par. control must be factory default without success. Have tried 0000 and 1234 without success. Can not find tv manual, if any one has suggestions, will listen.

How to change sylvania tv to video without remote


I was able to get the Sylvania TV to accept a different input (the remote was lost) by connecting the DVD to a Sony VCR using composite RCA jacks then connecting that to the TV. You'll need two 3-jack (yellow, white, red composite) cables - cheap at any store. Here;s how:
1. Connect RCA output jacks from the DVD to the input female receptacles of the VCR (first cable).2. Connect output jacks from VCR to the female input jacks on TV (second cable). 3. Turn on all equipment (VCR, DVD, TV)4. Switch the VCR to "Line 1" (for my Sony VCR, this shows up as "L1") by pressing the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote (which I did have).
Your system should now work.
The principle is to "fool" the TV into thinking that it's primary input is through the RCA composite A/V jacks rather than the cable connection. No need to disconnect the cable at any time. Any functioning VCR should work well as long as you have the remote for that device. Remember, connect output on the DVD to the input on the VCR, then the output on the VCR to the input jacks on the back of the TV. If you have the connectors on the TV, VCR, and DVD, component cables should work as easily. Remember, output from the DVD goes to the input of the VCR. Theoutput from the VCR (for which you DO have the remote) goes to the input side of the TV.
Good luck!

Trying to connect a new Samsung Bd-C5500 to my old Sony tv. Can't even get the set-up screen to come up on the TV. All we have is a TV, a Cable box and this new Samsung. We bought it because it is...


That depends on the connections your Sony TV has. If it has only the coaxial connector (the cable looks like this: http://www.w-l-t.org/Pix/Coax%20w-F%20connector.jpg), then you'll connect a VCR to that, and then the blu-ray player to the connections on the VCR using the composite cables (yellow, red, white). Switch the VCR to channel "L" or "Line" (usually below channel 2), and it should pass the video through to the television. Of course, if the TV itself has the yellow, white, and red connectors, you should just be able to connect the Blu-ray directly into that.
Also, it may be possible to connect your cable box as an intermediary like I just described with the VCR, depending on your model of cable box.

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work


The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

2002 zenith console television


If you lost the remote for a zenith television and want play a movie on an input, use the channel up/down buttons to navigate. Ususally if your on ch 2, press the down button. Line 1/2 will appear on a blackscreen if the device is off. Otherwise, I have had great success using a GE universal remote with my Zenith tv/vcr combo unit. (by the way, I work for the technical support department for my city's local cable company)
