Question about Insignia IS-DVD1001 DVD Recorder/VCR

Stand Alone VCRs do not play pictures on my Insignia 24" TV

I have tried 3 different VCRs hooked up to my 24" Insignia Color Flat Screen TV and can't get any of the my VHS tapes to play on them. The VCR's all worked well with older TVs and when I tried to return the Insignia TV to Best Buys and tried to explain my delimna they tried to blame me, my VCR's or my sanity. . . anything but their stupid TV. Am I crazy or is the newer Insignia TVs not compatible with VCRs by themselves? I need help with this. I bought the TV in Dec. 2007. Thank you so much

    Ok Geno69:



    I run the cable TV cord from the wall straigtht into the VCR to use it as the tuner, while I connect the white/yellow/red cord from the TV to the DVD player. This doesn't work. So I take the cable cord straight from the wall into the TV set; attach one set of red/white/yellow cord set fromt the DVD player to the back of the TV and a second red/white/yellow cord set from the side of the TV to the VCR and that doesn't work either. I don't subscribe to th premium cable stations so I don't need a cable box. That is why I run the cable from the wall directly to either the TV or the VCR. Any ideas why the picture of my VHS are distorted using perfectly good VCRs with the Insignia 24" TV?

    My 19 in Insignia is connected to a panasonic vhs/dvd player/recorder The dvd's work perfectly but with my vhs tapes the color and picture are badly distorted. The work perfectly when I hook up an older tv so its not the tapes. Have you any ideas about what can be happening.

Did you try using teh SV cables supplied or the RF cable?
Easier to use the AV Cables. 100% should work. Connect Video OUT of VCR ro VIDEO IN of TV and AUDIO OUT (L) and (R) of VCR to AUDIO IN (L) & (R) of TV. Select AV or VIDEO on TV using TVs remote. Play a Cassette. should work!!

I have an Insignia 42"


First, I would check the connection to see if everything is in it's proper place and plugged in nice and snug.
Second, I'd try watching something else on the TV and see how it looks, I'd also try watching something using the same cable/input the DVD player is using. If that fails, try a different cable.
If your TV checks out, and it's your DVD player, it might be time to upgrade to Blu-Ray or buy a new DVD player.
Hope this helps, cheers.

It sounds like the electronic ciruitry tha fire the Blue Gun of your CRT is not working. It could be as simple as a cold solder joint in the circuit (very common) or a malfuntioned component. I wouldn't advise repair by yourself due to the High Voltage and the risk of CRT Implosion. Any reputable PC or TV Repair Shop should be able to repair pretty cheap.

I just hooked up my 37" insignia and am not gettting full screen


Your tv is likely in a different aspect mode (it will probably have 4:3 which is standard for tv, 16:9 which is widescreen). The remote should have an aspect button. Try pressing that at see if the results are what you are looking for.

SHARP aquos 1080p HDTV: VCR image flickers when playback


I have the same model TV and the following worked for me. I am using A/V cables attached to Input1 on back of the TV.

On your Sharp TV remote control:
1. Select the Input (1-5) that is attached to your VCR.
2. Go to the menu and select options.
3. Change your color system to NTSC.

This should stop your picture frome flashing on and off.

You still may have a issue with the screen colors. I don't know of a way to address this, other than to make the picture monochrome.

Hope this helps.
