Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo

3 Answers

I have a Go Video DVR4300 DVD/VCR which I originally had in my bedroom connected to a standard definition TV through the composite video/line out audio jacks. A couple of years ago, I put the unit in the living room connected to a Philips HDTV through the component video and audio jacks on the DVD section, and the composite video/line out audio on the VCR side. Everything worked fine. Last night, I decided to move the unit back into the bedroom and connect it to a standard def TV. When I did so, I found that there was no audio from the VHS section on playback. There WAS audio from the DVD side (it's connected through the DVD/VCR composite video and audio line out jacks). The owner's manual mentions that if there is no audio on VHS playback, "you may be watching video through the component video or S-Video jacks". No, I'm not; the unit is connected through the DVD/VCR composite video and audio line out jacks. The TV I'm using doesn't have component or S-Video inputs. I even tried connecting the unit using the RF output. The quality was terrible and the audio was still missing on VHS. What do I do?

    It certainly could be a bad IC on the audio section, but the VHS playback was working just fine less than a week ago, and only failed when I moved it into the bedroom. I didn't drop or bump the unit. Is it possible I did something wrong in connecting it?

    No, there is no factory reset in the menus, and there is no reset function mentioned in the owner's manual.

Did you try scrolling through the different audio modes? Stereo, Mono, SAP etc.,? One of them should do the trick.

    I did. There is a button on the remote marked "Audio". In VCR mode, it switches between (supposedly) Stereo and Mono. But when I press it while the tape is playing, it shows an up arrow, a down arrow and the word "MONO". Nothing I press changes this, and after a few seconds it goes away.

    If he player has a headphone jack then you can just plug external speakers into it and solve the problem. It sounds like the best possible way out of this mess.

  • up_to_eleven Aug 04, 2010

    Well, that, or take it to the local repair shop to see if it really is the audio IC, like the first guy said.

Hi.

Check if in the menus there is a factory reset and try the factory reset.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but there's no factory reset mentioned in the manual or available via the menus.

    Also, there is no mute button on the remote, but there is a volume control, and it's all the way up, so it's not that.

Hello,

if the sound does not come up when you connected it via RF output, then it means the sound IC of the player is defective. Electronics could be funny sometimes, it might work now and later develop fault.

I would also advice you check if the player is not on mute.

Take care.

How do I connect old school dvd/vcr combo to LED HDTV?


The general rule of thumb is that R-W-Y outputs from the VCR/DVD combo plug into corresponding color coded inputs on the TV. I think the Y(ellow)/VIDEO designation indicates where to insert the Y cord. It's worth a try.

Sharp Aquos LC-37D44U only shows B&W images from DVD & VHS source


First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place? Anyway- If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong: 1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or.. 2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.

No video audio connecters


If you have a VCR with RCA inputs and coax (cable) output to TV, try plugging the DVD players RCA outputs (L/R audio, composite video) to VCR RCA inputs. Then select the DVD input on the VCR and it shoud play just as a the VCR does. If you don't have a VCR, an RF modulator might be needed, but a VCR would probably be cheaper.

Be advised that this unit, the Go-Video DVR4300, is a combined VCR (video cassette recorder) and DVD Player; it does not record DVDs. Only a DVD Recorder unit will serve your need.

Instructions for recording to VCR from TV is in the manual.

This is easy in a nutshell. from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote. Now for the cords: 1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial 2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable 3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable That is it. If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub. Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable) DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)

You will need a Composite video to RF convertor, this plugs into the antenna socket on the TV and then converts the signal from Composite Video into RF signal that can be plugged into the corresponding socket from ya target device. Try Ebay? look for an composite to RF convertor.
