Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi, I have tried all 4 "input" channels on my tv but get no image from the turned-on toshiba vcr-dvd combo. All the connecting cables seem to be in the right spots so I don't know what else to do. As usual, the explanations in the manuals are not clear at all.

Hello,

Try RF connection. There should be an RF at the back of the VCR-DVD. Connect an RF cord to the RF Out of the VCR-DVD, then connect the other part to the Antenna space (RF IN) at the back of your TV, then search turn the TV station in other to get the display of your VCR-DVD. Make sure the VCR-DVD is turned on in order for there to be a display.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then it means the we need to know precisely where the problem is coming from, whether from the TV or the VCR-DVD.

Connect the VCR-DVD to another TV and observe if there will be a display, do the same from the TV, connect another player to the TV. This will enable us know where to focus our attention.

Let me know the outcome so that I can direct you on what next to do.

I hope you understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

How do I hook up dvd to tv


If your TV has the standard analog audio and video inputs (yellow, red and white jacks) or for better image (S-Video rounded 4 pin jack or component video red, blue and green jacks), you'll only need the corresponding cables, and also your TV could have HDMI port (digital video and audio signals), you should use this connection, all depends of what type of outputs provide your DVD/VCR, in the case your TV set doesn't has any of mentioned inputs, you still could use the antenna input and connect its matching output from DVD/VCR , tuned at VHF channel 3 or 4.

Connecting VCR to TV


Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

I have a 30 year old tv w/cable. I want to install a dvd/vcr combo player. What kind do I need? I've tried one and it didn't have the right connection.


If the original TV doesn't have audio/video inputs, you'll need a DVD/VCR player that has a built-in RF modulator. A RF modulator takes the audio & video and modulates a RF carrier to one of the channels that your TV can receive. In the U.S., this is usually channel 3 or 4. If the DVD/VCR player has a built-in tuner, connect your cable to the RF input of the DVD/VCR player and the RF Output of the DVD/VCR player to the cable input of the TV. This way, you can receive your cable channels through the DVD/VCR player and watch movies as well. If your DVD/VCR player does not have a built-in tuner, you can put a RF switch inline that will allow your TV to either receive the cable signal or signal from the DVD/VCR player.

Good luck!

to connect a DVD player to your TV/VCR combo is :

DVD A/V output to TV/VCR Combo A/V INPUT In the back of TV , if TV doesnt have an auxilliary A/V input , then

Connecting dvd/vcr combo with tv and digital cable box.


You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.

TV image goes off when VCR power turned on


The vcr is connected in between the antenna (or cable) and the tv, and when it turns on its tuner takes control of the signal. Either:
1) press the VCR/TV button on the VCR to let the signal go stright thru
2) Tune the VCR to the channel you want to watch and set the TV to the VCR's input.
3) If you use a coax cable connection to the TV, try switching the VCR to the other channel (3 or 4, switch in the back)
4) Change the TV connection to RCA cables on the A/V inputs.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Connecting VCR/DVD combo to TV


If that is the only input that the tv has it's still usable. Just plug the Cable TV or antenna cable into the DVD/VCR coaxial input labeled "in" (instead of the TV's) and hook one from the DVD/VCR's "out" to the "in" on the tv. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (depends on DVD/VCR settings) and use the built in TV tuner on the DVD/VCR to change channels.

Connecting VCR/DVD combo


If you are able to you can connect to the RF connector (F Type Conncetor) on the TV. This should work. The layout is from the VCR (RF to TV) to the TV antenna F type connector from your Cable box to the Antenna in of the VCR that way you have cable through the VCR, and access to you VCR and DVD all controlled by the Cable and VCR remotes (set TV to Channel 3, set VCR to Channel 3) and use the Cable box as the tuner, Use the TV remote to switch between Cable and VCR inputs then use the VCR remote to switch between the VCR and DVD input.
