How do I set up a VCR to operate on my analogue TV. Everything I've looked at says 'refer to manual for tuning in the channel' but my manual doesn't tell me anything. Did have everything set up but something went wrong and lost all channels. Have since tuned in the TV channels OK

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would depend on how the VCR is connected to the TV. If it is using a single coaxial patchcord, then it would be Ch 3 or 4 for US versions and a UHF channel for most European models. If an audio / video cable is used, then it would be an AV mode such as when RCA plugs/cables are used or even SCART.

Offhand, postback the brands and model numbers of the TV and VCR as well as how they are connected. It may not be a VCR issue as tuning is more of a TV concern.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

    To "tune in a channel" for the VCR on the TV, put in a tape and press play. Then set the TV into auto tune mode and it will "find" the channel that the VCR operates on and include that into your channel presets.
    Once you have the TV tuned into the VCR's particular channel, you can then (or they may already be there) tune in the TV stations on the VCR as well.



    You can also use the Video and Audio connections on the rear of each unit to connect them together using an RCA A/V lead( get from a TV retailer or electronics hobby store)


    • video out(yellow) on the VCR to Video IN on the TV(yellow as well)

    • Audio out(red and white) on the VCR to Audio IN on the TV(same colours)
    Then select AV on the TV and you have access directly to the output of the Video. Happy to answer any questions that you may have.


    regards

The picture doesn't hold. The picture shows just snow on the tv.


VCRs are analogue. So their tuners won't pick up digital TV signals, and their output from the aerial socket is analogue too. You'll have to make sure your TV is on the analogue TV tuner and then tuned to the VCR output channel if you want to use the aerial connection for viewing. It's probably a lot simpler though to use the VCR's AV output to the TV.

If you connect a TV receiver (Aerial/cable/satellite) to the AV input on the VCR, then switch the VCR to that AV input, you will see and be able to record programmes.

I have an older but operable Sanyo VWM-700 4 head hi-fi VCR to connect to an older but operable 13" TV just to watch workout video cassettes(via cable, no cable box necessary).How are the connections made...


You connect the Antenna to the VCR, you connect the AV OUT from VCR to AV IN on TV.(Yellow, Red & White) (Doesn't matter as long as color to color) Then you TUNE the VCR to the channels and the TV simply acts as a monitor. You must tune the TV to the OUTPUT from the VCR. If ya play a tape and look for the signal on the TV, to "Tune it in" to the VCR. first. then go to tuner.

HOW DO I CONNECT A VCR AND WHAT DO i SET THE INPUT ON.


If you have connected using the coax (aerial) ten the problem will be that the vcr is analogue and the tv is digital(if you have an older digital tv it should have an analogue tuner so you can set it to analogue and tune to the vcr) I suggest using a scart cable from the vcr to the tv, then you just press av on the remote(on some you can just change the channel down from 1 to the av inputs).

I am unable to pick up sky and set it to a position on analogue tv settings. The Tv is sanyo ce26ld90b.


Hi there,

If first we could ensure some connections are tight before moving into TV settings.
You have told me that you are using sky over an analogue connection. Make sure that these are plugged in at both ends (sky box and TV) and that your sky box is on.
Now using your TV remote, enter the TV settings (there should be a button for this specifically on your remote), and opt for Tuning and manual tuning. The layout for most TV settings are similar.
By manual tuning, you are able to select the number on which you want to view a channel (in the analogue case, Sky as a whole is considered one channel on your television)
Now you should be able to use the left and right keys on your remote to tune up and down a range of frequencies, one of which Sky will be on. Once you have found this frequency, you should store it to the channel you have selected.

To my mind, the only thing that would then cause this to reset is if you turn off your TV from the mains each time you finish using it.

How to tune an old Television


If you are in the US, the TV set has to be on channel 3 or 4, if your in the UK, the TV would have to be on a UHF channel. It should say on the RF output of the VCR what station you must tune to ,or in the instruction book of the VCR. Good Luck
