Memorex television is not working with my new Phillips DVD/VCR combo

I just bought a new Phillips DVD/VCR combo and it is not working with my Memorex television. I hooked it up exactly like the book says and it is not working. I did lose the Memorex remote a long time ago and I am just wondering if that is the problem. Do I need to buy a new remote for the two to work together? If I do, what remote would you recommend? My tv is about 7 years old but in great condition.

    How can I use the a/v input if I don't have a remote to change it? There isn't an option on the television. If I need to buy a new remote do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Depending on how you hooked it up; if thru coax cable the you have to use channel 3 or 4 on the tv to use Philips. If you are connecting with video and audio cables then you have to select a/v input on tv to use.

    Most universal remotes when coded will let you switch a/v inputs. Look for a universal remote that has Memorex in its list.

I need to get a universal remote for the Disney VCR/DVD Combo Player, any recommendations?


Yes, do not bother with a Universal----at best it may turn set on/off and work volume but it will be missing many key features needed.

"Universal" remotes are hardly universal in this sense.

Best suggestions would be to GOOGLE the model number of the set with "original remote"----not a universal.

If you have the original but it does not work most repair shops for a tiny fee (we charge 5-10 if fixable) can deal with the repair.

If lost try to find an original unless you want VERY BASIC functions and you are gambling that the universal will even program for this unit.

Let me know if questions----GOOGLE IS YOU BEST SOURCE FOR RESEARCH ON THIS ISSUE.

Phillips dvdplayervideorecorder connect w/zinwell converter box


First off get the TV on the right channel. It will either be ch3 or ch4. If you are using a cable box the dvd/vcr combo will have to be on ch3 or ch4 as well. OK, Make sure the input connector on the combo is hooked to the output connector of the cable box and the output connector of the combo is hooked to the input connector of the tv. Deal with one part at a time. First hook the combo to the tv and get the tv on the right channel (ch3 or ch4) so that you can see a pre-recorded dvd or video play. Then you will know what channel the tv is supposed to be on. When you find it don't bother the tv channel any more. Stop the dvd or video and hook up the cable box and turn on the cable box and set the box to a known good channel. Now put the combo on ch3 or ch4 with the combo's channel selector buttons until you see the cable box playing on the tv (remember you already set up the tv channel). Change channels on the box but don't bother the channels on the tv or combo anymore. You can put the box on whatever channel you want. The box will be your channel selector. I certainly hope that this helps. I know it can be confusing but don't give up. Just remember that the tv and combo have to always be on ch3 or ch4 (which ever one you found before). Good luck and thanks.

We are unable to get video (picture) on our TV, when we hook up to our new DVD/VCR combo. The combo doesn't have an S-video port and our TV does. We get perfect sound though.


Your TV should also have a regular composite video input jack (yellow) in addition to the s-video input. Use that input instead of the s-video. The video won't be quite as clear as with s-video, but you have to work with what the combo gives you.

Problem with old TV


The channel is almost always 3 or 4. Be sure you have the VCR connections correct. Just hook up the TV and VCR alone to start with and try both the VCR and DVD. Also the output of the VCR should show a blue screen.

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.

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.
