Dvd is playing movies in black and white


Hi
use red/white/Yellow cables to connect to a loose hard diskon which I keep films, TV-serials and talking books. The colour is fine.

But I connect the DVD to the TV with a scart cable.

Hope you get your colour

The VHS tapes will not playback on the Samsung TV (flat screen)..the Samsung TV is a Syncmaster 2333 HD...the Samsung dvd/vhs unit is a DVD-V9800 The DVD discs will play just fine. How should I be...


On these combo units, the VCR will not play using component cables but the dvd's will play just fine.

What you need to do is run a pair of composite (Yellow, red and white) cables and use that for VCR and component (Green, blue, red, white and red) for the dvd player.

Make sure you switch the tv to the corresponding input.

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black


There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

VHS-C tape jumpy when playing back


My apologies, I overlooked the "-C" in your post.

This problem is due to a type ofcopy protection built into vcr's.

"Macrovision" copy-protection is merely a weakening of a particular part of the signal that makes up the picture and was primarily intended to prevent people from copying videotapes. I imagine almost everyone's seen it but probably didn't know what they were seeing: the resulting picture is a little jittery and is in black-and-white or alternates between black-and-white and color. The reason you're seeing a blue screen is because modern televisions, in the absence of a signal or a weak signal, will just show a blue screen instead of snow or a very poor picture. As mentioned above, you can get around Macrovision by inserting into your connections a signal amplifier that specifically amplifies the portion of the signal that Macrovision diminishes.

Can only get DVD audio when hooking it up to Goldstar VCR...


The DVD must be connected with the RCA jacks-plugs [usually black & red] to the INPUT of the VCR, not to the RF connector. You must press the VCR\TV button to VCR so that the VCR takes control.When you place a DVD movie or AUDIO program it could be copied to the VCR. or played through the VCR.

Bought a new 42' flat - "No Program or Weak Signal"


Hi,you have not said weather you are using a scart lead(euro connecter)or an RF lead,if you are using the later don't,please connect the vcr to the tv via the scart to scart euro connecters,use a good quality scart lead(the thicker the better)as the thicker ones generally are 21 pins connected meaning it should be auto switching so as soon as you play a tape it will come straight on.

Vhs to dvd burning


You cannot burn a DVD on the XBV243. It is NOT a DVD recorder. You CAN record onto a VHS tape from a DVD (copy-protected commercial DVDs cannot be recorded)
