Re: conversion to hd
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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).
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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
