It may not be on the right channel. If you hooked in up by RCA cables (the red, yellow, & white colors) then you will have to change the TV to the correct input. Look next to where you plugged the cables in and it should say input? where the "?" is replaced with a number. Either use a button on the TV or your remote that says "TV/Video" or "input" to change to that input. If it is the old single black cord (which I doubt) then it will be either channel 3 or 4.

Good luck

How to hook up vcr and tv using digital adapter


You can hook up the VCR directly to the TV; you don't need to hook up the VCR to the adapter. If you already had the VCR hooked up to the TV, you don't need to change those connections.

How do I hook up the Retro Duo nes/snes system to an older tv that has no a/v connections. I do have a Direct tv cable box but when I hooked the a/v cables to it absolutely nothing happened


Do you have a VCR that can hook to the TV that has the proper hook ups for your game system? Be sure your TV is on proper channel for your VCR to work (test it with a VCR tape and see if it plays) then change your channel on your vcr until it shows your game you have in your system hope that helps good luck

Having trouble hooking old VCR up to new LG TV and Integra Receiver. Feel like I'm missing a step...


Look at the back of the tv. What is it labeled at where you plugged the VCR into. Should probably say composite in. After that's verified, go into the tv menu and make sure you have selected composite input. Should be no need for any settings on VCR, it has to be settings on tv

I have a Sa-ex900 amp hooked up to Television ,vcr and dvd player. When I turn the amp on and want to play the tuner , the television bleeds through. In fact TV plays through all buttons except VCR1


Hi,
it seems to be ,you have a possible wrong connection..I
may I recommend you to check the connections in accordance with my model connection procedures given below and correct if something is misconnected..

I believe Your Television ,vcr and dvd player all connected to each other thru Technics Receiver itself (not directly connected to each other ) and whenever you want to listen/watch any of it ,you make a selection thru Receiver..
** in order to do this both DVD and VCR 's "2xRCA audio" and "1x RCA Video" cables for "IN" and "OUT" should go to Receiver separately ..("IN" goes to "OUT" of other ..pls remember,Always reverse connected )
** Additionally your RECEIVER's prefably only "1xRCA Video Output " should go to TV to watch the video of both DVD and VCR (audio will come thru Receiver.)

Ok, now Since you successfully connected your Receiver to play video on TV (one way only ) ,here is the second reverse action to listen your TV on Receiver
** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " of your TV .( every TV has different type of Audio out jacks )
** to "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
of your Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the necessary cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
There you go..Tv sound are on the
Receiver .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Can't find where to hook up tv coax.


As far as I can tell your TV is just a monitor. You would have to buy a separate tuner. I had the same problem with mine and found it was cheaper just to use an old VCR. I hooked up the coax wire up to the VCR and hooked the VCR to my TV with composite cables and changed my channel through the VCR. That will only work now if you're using cable because of the switch to digital. If you're using an antenna you will need a digital tuner.

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.


Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

How do you save from your Tivo to your vcr


For the best picture you can run RCA video and audio cables to the video and audio inputs on your VCR. Another way would be to connect your TV out to your VCR Ant in and then the TV out from the VCR to your TV. Tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 (set on the VCR) Turn on the VCR and you should see a picture. This should work without any problem. If it doesn't, then it is possible that your VCR has anti-copy firmware installed to inhibit or stop the copy process when triggered by a code from the program being aired. (GO Video has this) Many older VCR's do not. Try copying directly off the air or a commecial and see if your VCR can record that. If it can, then your VCR is equipped with a Macromedia Anti-piracy chipset and firmware. If it can't copy ANYTHING, then there is a problem with your cables or VCR. If you try replacing the cables with different ones, and it still doesn't work, then you VCR is defective and may require servicing.
