Re: Vcr and DVD combo for my television
The manuals and an FAQ for connection questions are available from Philips website (they do Maganvox as well).
Make sure you have a Red, white, yellow (A/V Composite) cable going from thsi unit to input of TV. If you are using coaxial (F-connector or "screw-in") cable going from this unit to TV, make sure you have an RF modulator between dvd and TV, or you may have problems.

As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok..
Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.
Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.
Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats. It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV. In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual.Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks
Try cleaning the video heads - assuming you got a 'snow' image with audio, see if it helps. Otherwise the VCR might require a head replacement/mechanical realignment, which could be expensive/uneconomical.
First, you need to check if the cables are properly connected to the television. Then you also check if you have your television on the appropriate channel that is to work with the DVD player/VCR combo for instance the AV channel. Then you can further try to change the cord used in connecting the DVD player to the television, if it does the same, then the problem is most likely from either the DVD's Audio Video port or from the Televisions Audio video port.
Have them both checked to detect which is faulty, and replace with the same type of port where fault is detected.
I found the problem - on the back of the VCR/DVD unit there are 3 outputs: L (Wht) & R (Red) Audio + Yellow Video out. The cable from it to the TV was labeled Red/Audio,White/Video, and was connected to the R & W outs, but actually the Wht should have been connected to the Yellow Video out. There is so little space in the TV cabinet/stand that even though I turned the unit around to see the connections, I couldn't see the other (Yellow - Video) out until I pulled the cables out. It's working fine now - I'm not sure how things got connected wrong, since it was working OK before - possibly when I signed up for AT&T U-Verse & the installers moved things around. I'm very happy with that service, by the way - better than Comcast & cheaper, and didn't mean to imply the connection problem was their fault. I may have moved things around in the new cabinet & not realized I hooked up to the wrong outs...
Is simply. get the audio/vido cables and look on the back of the TV and connect from the audio video outputs from the combo to the audio video inputs on the tv. remember the colors of the terminals and connect them that matches the red, white (audio) and the yellow (video). Using the remote locate the button "input" or "source", and select video 1 or 2, depending where you connected it.
On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video
(yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component
jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because
the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than
component quality video. Thank you for rating this solution.
