Question about Quasar VHQ960 VHS VCR

1 Answer

I have a Quasar 940/960, and want to hook up dvd to it &use both

I have a Quasar 940/960, which is connected to a REALLY old Zenith (mid 80s model, believe it or not). I'd like to hook up a DVD, but if possible, preserve the vcr function for some old tapes. Can I connect a dvd to the vcr, and both will work? If so, how?

Thanks!

I am looking at the manual for your Quasar VHQ960, & can see how it has two coaxial cable connections, one for antenna input & one output for the television. You certainly can connect a DVD player to your current gear by using an RF modulator between the DVD unit and the VCR. These were common cables that used to ship with every 'legacy' video game system such as atari or nintendo, and replacement cables were readily available.

You might luck out at your local electronics store if you find someone over thirty - they'll know exactly what you are talking about. The cables have a little box with a coaxial screw connection on them, and then a cable with an RCA connection at the end. Better ones will have both an input and an output coax connections on the box, IN for your antenna cable and OUT to the TV.

This cable will 'broadcast' your DVD on channel 3 or 4 while the rest of your antenna channels remain the same. I suspect you can find one for just a few dollars at your local 'thrift' shop.

Alternatively, places like Future Shop sell boxes that do the same thing for about $50.

I hope that helps.

Look on www.youtube.com for a video of some pulling a radio on a mid 80s olds/buck/chevy. there are thousands of car repair videos there. that way you see someone pull one out and can do it yourself. you can buy a replacement on eBay or at a junkyard/recycler. parts for cars more than 10 years old are hard to find, poke around at flea markets and garage sales, always old radios someone pulled for an upgrade laying around. most likely any mid 80s GM car radio will fit.

You connect up a DVD to a TV via the Audio Visual leads, they go into the Red White, the Audio, & Yellow, the composite Video. In & Out. They wire color to color. Then you select AV on the TV. & press Play on DVD.

The unit did not come with the separate Audio and Video connections that you need. You should be able to go to a Radio Shack and tell them that you have an older tv that doesn't have the proper connections for your dvd player. They have a couple of units that will allow you to connect the DVD to your TV. Unfortunately that type of connection will not give you the quality of picture that you would get with the proper type of TV.

Connect your video source [cable, satellite, etc] to your dvd and connect your dvd to your tv. Get back if you still have a problem.

Hooking up a dvd player


as you say that it is old tv so there is a possibility that there may not be audio video socket where dcd player can be connected. OR You will have to purchase one video RF converter.RF converter contains one video input in yellow color & two audio input in red & white colour & one cable connector as output. Connect the dvd output to this converter & tune tv program in which place you receive dvd signal.

Hey


You can find the owner's manual for this set online at: http://www.zenithservice.com/gcsc/b2c/hpi/main?tc=owm.command.OwmCmd It says that the BOTTOM four connectors are: 1. S-Video IN 2. Video IN 3. Audio (Right) IN 4. Audio (Left) IN Above the Audio IN connectors are two audio OUT connectors, which you could hook to external speakers, your stereo, etc. But these are not needed for hooking up your DVD player. From your DVD player, you need to hook up either the S-Video or Video connection (Video is typically the Yellow wire), plus the Audio connections (Red and White). If your DVD player has an S-Video output, this will give you a better picture than the standard Video connection. S-Video cables have a different plug, with four or five wires in the connector, and are keyed so they only fit into the socket in one orientation. Be careful to line it up properly and not force it in the wrong way.

Hooking up a cd player


I'm assuming you mean a DVD player, not a CD player? 1. You can get an input splitter (basically an A/B switch for the cable), and connect to that, manually switching between the two sources. 2. You can replace the VCR and the DVD player with a combination DVD/VHS unit. Although it would seem logical, it is unlikely that you can hook the DVD player to the VCR, since the VCR will refuse to let the signal pass though it, as part of its MacroVision copy protection. (This is the same sytem that prevents you from recording DVDs onto VHS tapes.)
