Problems playing my Phillips DVD/ VHS with my new WESTENHOUSE HDTV
I just bought a Westenhouse 26";, model SK-26H240S, HDTV but I cannot seem to get my Phillips DVD/ VHS, model DVP3340V, to show on it. I have tried going white audio- audio, red video-video with my cables but I cannot get a picture on channel 3. Also, I have them all around and failed to get a signal with either a DVD or VHS tape playing. When I tried channel 4 it not a receiving channel. Am I missing anything besides my Phillips owner manual???

Re: Problems playing my Phillips DVD/ VHS with my new...
I notice this was made in 2008 and I hope you have found the answer. But if you or others have not here is my answer. Are using the RCA cable from the output on the DVD Player and you have plugged it into the RCA in ports then you need to use the remote to move through the on screen menu. My INSIGNIA has a Source List menu on the remote that shows on screen. I can scope through the MENU for TV, Composite Side, S-Video Rear, S-Video Side, Composite 1, Composite 2, VCR, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3. That is found using either the INPUT button on the upper left on the remote or the buttons; VIDEO, COMP, HDMI, AND TV across the top of the remote. Hope this helps.

1: Hi i would recommend trying the recorder on a different tv to check if the problem continues. If the green tint is gone then its the tvs inputs. If it is still green then its the player or the cord. Try a different cord if the green tint is still there then the player has a problem.
2: Now for the VHS to DVD. There are general a lock out encoded on the VHS if it is a store bought movie. This is to protect the content on the VHS from piracy and that would case the DVD to be blank. The VHS to DVD are made for converting your home videos like family vacations and stuff you record your self and not for commercial movies like the ones you bye at the store. If you want to convert old VHS movies to DVD you would have to get another VHS player and another device in between the VHS player and the VHS to DVD recorder.
You probably wont believe this but some DVD players aren't smart enough i had one like that in fact it was not working on the movies Underworld and the van helsing movie .
You might try using a RF Gainer walmart sells them install it as it comes out of the DVD player i hope this was some help if not you ll probably have to get a better line of DVD player i have a magnavox DVD/VHS daul recorder
Is the player new? If it's a new DVD player and still under warranty, I would return it, exchange it or possibly, consider changing brands: perhaps to a Phillips brand DVD player. After all, the Phillips corporation guarantees its DVD players will play everything, just read the box in which the player's packaged - it's the best bang for your buck. With DVD players being so inexpensive these days, the best option is to buy new. Keep computing Chomskyites.
you may not need a remote to dub a vhs tape to dvd.
look on the front of the recorder. see if there is a arrow showing dubbing vhs to dvd/ dvd to vhs. since you do not have the manual, you'll probably have to play around with it a while to figure it out. you will also need to know which format the dvd will record on. [dvd-r,dvd-rw,dvd+r,dvd+rw or ram] you can look up your recorder brand & model # online, then search for a manual you can download.
my dvd player does this (its a diff make n model from ur's ) i've found its the discs that it doesnt like, i had to go thru many diff brands of disc b4 i found 1's it will play without problems, hope this helps
The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.
