Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The television turns on, and the cable is hooked up. When the vcr is turned on we can see the images from the incoming channels, but when the vcr is off there is no image whatsoever, er rather there is a delay sometimes before the image shows up. Other times the image doesn't show up at all. There was no delay before.

    Turns out the television, wasn't working itself. Ended up finding another small tv that worked and set it up the same way the broken one was and it worked perfectly.

Hi,
Your cable signal going to tv through vcr that is why when vcr is off, tv gets no signal.
Please hook cable directly in tv to avoid vcr power interruption and delayed picture problem.
Local tch will help you for correct connection setup.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Proper vcr connections to operate on a television


Since the cable is connected to the VCR and from there to the TV. The TV should be tune to channel 3 or 4. Using this connection, the VCR tuner will be changing channels when is ON, if you want to change channels on the TV; the VCR should be on standby.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I hook up a VCR? There is only a portal for the cabel on the back. mpartridge


You will need to have a VCR with a cable connection on it. You will need to remove the cable connection(if connected) on the TV and connect it to the "cable in" connection on the VCR. Then the coaxiel cable will connect from the "cable out" connection to the cable connection on the television. You will then need to turn the channel on the TV either to channel 3 or 4. Then turn on the VCR and you should be able to watch a tape on the VCR. If your VCR does not have a cable connection on it then you will need to buy an adapter that turns the cable connector into RCA style jacks.

How do you hook up the dvd player to the tv with a vcr hooked up to the tv


Leave the cable box powered on but disconnected from the TV or VCR. All other components should be disconnected and unplugged, giving clear and easy access to all connections. If components sit in an entertainment unit, make sure all A/V cables can reach the RF modulator and the cable from the modulator can easily reach the television.
  • Step 2 Hookup the first coaxial cable from cable box output, usually labeled "TV," "TV out" or "Out to TV" to the cable "In" on the VCR. Connect the second coaxial cable from the VCR's out to "TV" to the coaxial input on the RF Modulator.
  • Step 3 Connect the third coax cable from the coaxial cable "Out" jack on the RF Modulator to the coax cable "Input" on the television.
  • Step 4 Take one A/V cable, connect the red (right audio channel,) white (left audio channel) and yellow (video) from DVD player's "Output," to the corresponding DVD "inputs" on the RF Modulator. Place components as desired but still disconnected from power. Plug in all power cables including the RF Modulator's into the surge protected outlet strip.
  • Step 5 Make sure the Channel select switch usually found on the back of the VCR and the Channel select switch on the RF Modulator are both set to Channel 3. This channel is used on the television to view your components.
  • Step 6 Turn on the power strip and turn on the TV. Cable reception should come on as usual. Set the TV to Channel 3 and turn on the VCR. With VCR on test it by playing a video tape. The RF Modulator should sense the signal and automatically switch to "VCR."
  • Step 7 Switch off the VCR and with the television still on channel 3, turn on the DVD player. As the RF Modulator senses the DVD player signal and switches to DVD, its welcome screen should be seen on the television. Play a DVD to test and once you're done with the DVD turn it off and the cable should come back on.

    How do I connect an analog VCR + converter box to a digital TV?


    first of all does your television and/or vcr have a cable connector and/or a set of rca outlets? if they have a cable connection in the back all you have to do is hook the cable from the antenna to the "in from antenna" on your cable box and then connect a cable from "out to tv" to "in from antenna" on the vcr and a cable from "out to tv" on the vcr to "in from antenna" on the tv. then you need to make sure on the converter box and the vcr and look for a channel selector and see what channel they are on. most vcr's have a selector for either channel 3 or 4, look at what channel it is set to and if your converter box has the same thing then match it with the vcr. then tune your tv to that channel and you should be able to work your vcr as long as the vcr/tv button shows that you are on the vcr. now if your tv and/or vcr have rca outlets and your converter box has the same then just hook the cable from the antenna to the cable box and substitute the rca cable for the regular cable and tune your tv to video or line input.

    Connecting VCR/DVD combo to TV


    If that is the only input that the tv has it's still usable. Just plug the Cable TV or antenna cable into the DVD/VCR coaxial input labeled "in" (instead of the TV's) and hook one from the DVD/VCR's "out" to the "in" on the tv. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (depends on DVD/VCR settings) and use the built in TV tuner on the DVD/VCR to change channels.
