When I place a vcr in my machine all I get is a snowy picture. Why would this happen? The DVD player works but not the VCR


Make sure the tape you are trying to view has something recorded on it. Also insure that the tape you are trying to view is not recorded at a speed your DVD Recorder/VCR combo can not handle. If it is a pre recorded tape and it will play on another unit, then your VCR heads are dirty. Try using a VCR head cleaner. If that doesn't work the heads may need to be cleaned by hand or possibly may be bad, a trip to the repair shop would be call for then.

I have 2 DTV converter boxes - one for TV and one for VCR. The wiring is exactly as prescribed by manuals and FCC. VCR does NOT record programs from TV - altho it plays back pre-recorded tapes OK. I have...


Use only one box.
Connection should be:::Video Source(cable, antenne) connected to converter box:::::Converter box connected to VCR:::VCR connected to TV.
Try this connection and let me know how it goes.

Snowy picture on VCR with only certain channels


In all likelyhood, you have a bad ground somewhere in the cable. Try other channels through the VCR. If the ground is the problem, there will be a cluster of channels that are snowy with the rest being clear. Check the cable itself and all of the connectors along it.

If the cable and connectors are good, the tuner or power supply of the VCR could be faulty and cause this as well.

No movie picture


If you want to record from cable to your vcr the usual configuration is either cable to cable box, cable box to vcr, and vcr to tv. If you want to get rid of the snowy pictures, you can plug the cable box directly to the tv and separately to the vcr, and you can also plug the vcr into the tv. but the tv has to have two inputs
the best configuration will be the black, screw in, coaxial cable from the cable box to the television and the red, white and yellow RCA plugs from the cable box to the vcr in.
then the vcr our red whit and yellow cables to the back of the tv.
To watch vcr, switch the tv to video mode
to watch cable, switch tv to channel 3 or 4, depending on the cable service.
please let me know if you have questions.

Can't record from my digital cable tv to my sylvania dvd/vcr ..........


Depending on the unit your going to need to check the back of the DVR for video out ports... My DVR has VID/HDMI/VCR/1394/SaTa and IR ports I use the VCR out to record with... because on my DVR I can say "Play this movie... now record to VCR and it will only play the movie on those VCR ports not on my TV so all I gotta do is hit record on my VCR... As long as you have audio/video jacks on the VCR. Then even some have it blocked so you can't do that... depends on model. So try recording on the VCR using the video ports instead of the COAX cable.
