We have a Panasonic VCR model NV-MV20GL and I am having trouble tuning the VCR into the TV which is also Panasonic. All the cables are correctly fitted, the VCR obviuously works mechanically as it will fast forward, rewind tapes, etc both with the remote & pushing the buttons on the VCR itself but obviously with no picture coming through as following the instructions I cannot bring up the menu on the TV by pressing the menu button on the VCR remote controller to start the process of tuning the VCR to the TV. I am sure it will be an obviously simple solution to this problem but I'm dumbfounded at the moment & look forward to hearing what the simple solution is.
I have a panasonic analogue television, and I cannot tune in a Goodman VHS VCR to the television. I have no remote controller for the television, and use the buttons on the front of the set to change stations 1-5. I have however found AV on the television screen and the indication is that the VCR is trying to come through when switched on. I have got a remote controller with the VCR. Can you help me please ??

Re: How Do I Tune VCR to the TV
You have have to use your input button on your tv remote until you get to your vcr. For instance some tvs will show on the screen component 1 for for cable, component 2 for your DVD player and so on so on depending on which jacks you have it plugged into.

Don't know if this was the problem, but I was trying to go through the tuner for the saterllite stations. I tried going through the VCR/DVD unit and now all the channels are tuned. Only problem now is how do I tape a channel through the VCR? I can't seem to tune in the VCR.
1992 tv has an electronic tuner, if it doesn't tune, then you need to replace the tuner, or you can bypass the tuner by hooking up an external tuning source, vcr, cable box, sattelite box, to the audio video jacks and putting the tv on video 1 or 2 whatever input you hook it to.
hopefully you have a menu button on your TV, if so you should be able to access auto program (you might have to search to find the auto search)but before you auto program make sure you set your TV to a cable setting then auto program. If you do not have a menu button on the TV, you could also try buying a universal remote. If you don't want to do that you could always use a VCR, just set your TV on channel 3 and do a auto program on the VCR ,using the VCR remote you should be able to tune in the channels your missing through the VCR.
Press and hold Set until the green light on Tune In blinks once, pauses and then blinks twice. Now release the Set key.
Enter the first three-digit TV code for your NEC from the list which follows: 030, 056, 019 These codes are listed in order of popularity, and the green light will blink twice if you perform this procedure correctly.
Aim Tune In at your TV and press Power. Your TV should turn off. If it does not, repeat steps 2-5, trying each code listed in step 4 until you find the one that operates your TV.
Now Test Your TVWhy test? Many times more than one code appears to work. Testing is desirable to be sure you have the correct code for your TV or the other devices you are setting up.
Press the Power key to turn on the TV, then press mute, channel scan ("CH") and volume ("VOL") keys. Tune channels 7 and 11 by entering the number followed by the Enter key.
If your TV does not pass the test, return to Step 2 at the top of this page. Enter the next three-digit code and repeat the process.
sometimes if the tuner is not damaged then a technician can put it back on... the other option is to tune the channel through a vcr.. essentally bypassing the tv tuner and useing vcr tuner. hook the cable to vcr then using rca jacks yellow red and white connect it to you tv(if it has rca jacks ...most have them these days.. sometimes on front and sometime on back or even on the side.. tune your tv to that input(video 1 or something like that.. then using your vcr remote change channel...its not a perfect solution but it will save you the 130 buck most charge to repair that connector
