Make sure the cables going from the cable box to the vcr are not loose as well as the ones from the vcr to the tv.

How do i setup my tv through surround sound without a cable box?


Unfortunately Without the cable box you will have to screw the coax cable into the coax input on the tv or You can screw the coax cable into a vcr and then plug the Audio / Video RCA plugs from VCR out to TV RCA input (You will have to control the channels from the VCR and the volume from the TV remote)

How do i record a show onto a tape?


lets say you are hooked up correctly (cable to VCR in (from cable/sat box) & cable to TV from VCR out) and the VCR is set to Ch 3,, (PLEASE NOTE THE TV MUST BE ON CH 3)

program a recording
the VCR clock / date must be set and not flashing 12:00
then you go to menu, program a recording by imputing the start time / end time of the show and the date it will be recorded and Ch 3...(you might have to set your cable box for the same date/time as the VCR or manually turn to that ch you wish to record that morning or before you go to bed) put a new tape in the machine....

manual recording
a show,game or special comes on and you sitting and want to watch and record and even edit (no commercials) put tape in... press record button get the remote so you can pause (on commercials) and press pause again to resume recording

Sounds like there is too much voltage going into the same outlet. Please keep in mind cable boxes as well as your tv hold a higher amount of voltage then your dvd player. If your tv is plugged into the back of your cable box, unplug that and just plug it directly into the wall. If not, get a power strip and plug it in that way.

When i record spanish satalite station the recorded program goes black and white on a regular basis


Well, if the program is showing in color on the TV, then the TV is fine. If she's recording using a VCR, then I presume she doesn't have a cable box? If she doesn't have a cable box and has the cable from the wall going into the VCR and the VCR connected to the TV, then the problem is the VCR if the program appears in color when showing "live" on the TV but black and white when played back on the VCR. Does that make sense? Let me know if you understand what I'm telling you.

It seems to me that you have only got one set of RCA Cablec between the TV and VCR ( from VCR Video out to TV Video In), as such the VCR only works in playback mode, you need a second set of RCA cables (from TV Video Out to VCR Video In) then select the appropriate input (Video) for the VCR. make sure to follow the colour coding on the RCA plug / socket arrangement

Vcr/dvd combo recording problems


You can use a normal set top box, plugged into the AV inputs on the combo, you could even use a seperate VCR for this, as long as it's recieving the signal you want to record.

Toshiba Model: SD-V295 DVD/VCR Combo Setup for TV recording


The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.

With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.
