If you are connecting the cable to the VCR, and using a cable TV type wire (CATV wire) from the VCR to the TV, this is not the same as an A/V connection.

The VCR should have a built in modulator. In some areas the VCR uses channel 3 or 4. In other areas they are using channel 5 or 6. You will have to refer to the user manual for the VCR to know the channel that is being used for the VCR. On some, it is written at the CATV output connector.

Turn on the VCR, and set the TV to the proper channel for the VCR. Select in the VCR's options to put its output to the CATV, or its channel output. Refer to the book on the VCR for details.

I have sound but not picture when I play vcr. I


I believe that channel 00 switches the set to the A/V inputs on the rear panel. You may have a bad cable or loose connection. Make sure the RCA plugs are firmly in the jacks at both ends.

The trouble may also be in the VCR. Sound but no picture is often a symptom of dirty heads. Try using a wet-type cleaning cassette and see if that brings the picture back. Wet-type cleaners come with a bottle of cleaning fluid which you apply to the strip inside. It's much more effective than dry type cleaners.

What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

TV channel sound from a different channel


I just unplugged the tv from the power source and disconnected the cable connection and then reconnected them back after sometime. The TV started auto programming after turning on and that resolved the problem.

PICTURE IN PICTURE TV RCA


The PIP puts a smaller picture on your main picture. Usually, the smaller picture is generated by a second source, such as a VCR. The VCR must be connected to the main cable signal and connected to the TV through the red, white, yellow RCA jacks. The VCR picks the smaller picture whilt the tuner in the TV picks the main pucture. The PIP circuits digitally add the smaller picture to the larger picture. The PIP cannot be used to veiw 2 different channels at once on satellite systems because the satellite receiver sends only one channel to the set at a time.
