    I have powered rabbit ears; how do I get it to tape using the converter box channels (it now keeps taping from the fuzzy channels with no antenna)?

  • historyguy Jun 03, 2008

    Nope, when I try to tape,  it insists on going through the antenna instead of the converter box.

    If I try to set a timed taping, for example, it will tape channel 10, but it will be fuzzy and not the clear picture presented on the converter. However, if I start taping using the remote, it tapes whatever channel is on the converter, in other words, channel 10 (really 10.1) is really clear.

    I hope I have explained this better.

    1. The Toshiba is a tv/vcr/dvd combo, does that matter?
    2. There is no "f" connector, there is an "RF" connector.
    3. I used to tape using timed settings before with no problems.

First of all, you will only need a box if you are currently using an exterior antenna. If you have sable or satellite, no box is needed. If you need the box, it will allow normal operation of the set. That means that however you tape now will continue to work.

    WIth the converter box, the HD digital broadcast signal is converted to an analog signal that the TV can understand. If your reception is better with the digital signal, the VCR will still be receiving the analog signal through the "F" connector on the back of the set. If you are currently having problems with taping, these problems are independent of the conversion. In essence, the converter box will present similar signals to your TV as exist today.

I have a Sylvanis VCR/DVDcombo and a Standard TV.


The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).

Hope this helps,
Dan

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape


The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

High definition box


if you mean the digital set-top box (freeview) then it connects to the tv via scart just to deliver a signal but the vcr uses ordinary aerial input to record it's programs.. you cannot get a 'HD box' to plug into a tv the tv is either HD ready or it is not

Tape won't play


Hi hwgs,

The "DEW" warning appears if a VHS player or recorder has built up humidity. This, much like dew found on the grass on a cool morning, is the result of condensation building up, ususally after a temperature change. Once the moisture has evaporated the unit should work properly.

Be sure to keep your TV away from sources of humidity, such as a window or a bathroom/kitchen door. Also, make sure it is in a climate-controlled room away from drafts so the temperature does not change rapidly.

Thank you,
Jason,

Tape stuck in VCR


could be that you're looking at a blown cartridge for that vcr tape. You may need to cut the tape, to extract that from the unit.

The play head would usually retract when the cartridge is removed, BUT could be compromised by some tape getting into the play head mechanism, and jamming.

be particularly careful with anything pointy or sharp, as the tape head does NOT like those objects near the read surface.

VCR Tape stuck and I can't remove it.... it is an important tape so I don't want to break it.


Best to take the unit to a shop. The unit can be taken apart and the tape removed manually.

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem


Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.

Vcr trouble


this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.

TV shuts off when VCR tries to eject cassette


This is a hard call man. Some combos have to be laid down when taking the back off or it will collapse when you do take off the back, falling over backwards as they are top heavy. These units are so tight inside by means of no room to work so alot of maufacturers have extension cables to attach to componets ie vcr deck and main chassis. After they take them apart. If you really feel confident then lay the set down on its face and take off the back and after the back is off look to see in the deck part if the tape has come out of the cassette or if it all looks normal. If you see the tape out of the cassette ,cut off the tape on both sides and see if the tape will eject. It it does then go back in after and remove the remainder of the old tape. Now it could have been a bad tape but most likly something is wrong with the mechanism. If you cant see anything out of norm, dont try to force the tape out as you WILL cause more damage and most likely unrepairable. Really there are no user serviceable parts inside these buggers so the best advise I can give ya is to disconnect the thing and take it into your repair shop for an estimate!! Good Luck
