Question about Televison & Video

How do I set my Emerson VCR EWV601B to "timed recording". Since purchasing a new TV, it just won't work. I connected everything just as it was to the old TV and both the TV and VCR are on channel 3. Nothing........the 'timer' button on VCR is blinking and won't turn off.

    Azraelsri, thanks for the prompt reply, but I being a complete newbie at this, don't understand quite how to accomplish my goal. Could you please start at the beginning and tell me where the cable coming from the TV goes, and step by step from there to get the VCR operating like it should. Sorry for my incompetence, and I really do need your help.

    Thank you, I have the owner's guide that came with my VCR. Everything is connected properly according to the schematic. The problem is with the VCR and it's ability to record timed recordings. I can record LIVE from the TV. It just will not click on for timer recording. I just cannot figure why it won't work with this TV when it worked fine with the old TV with the exact same cables and connections. All I did with the new TV was to insert the cable from the VCR into the back of the TV as it was on the old TV. One cable is all I disconnected and reconnected to the same spot just on a different TV. It must be a VCR problem. Are there any settings on the VCR that need to be changed when changing TV's?

Hello Cadomom. We have all had this frustration at one time or another. Thanks for choosing Fixya! Since your VCR is blinking, check these items:

If a tape is not in the VCR or does not have the safety

tab, the TIMER indicator flashes and timer recording
cannot be performed. Please insert a recordable tape.

Double check the safety tap on the tape youhope to record on. If that tab has been broken out, to save the previous recording, you have to cover that little hole where the tab was with scotch tape in order to record on that casette again. Joe

PS here is a free download of your VCR's manual if you need it http://www.devicemanuals.com/guide/Video%20Cassette%20Recorder/Emerson/Emerson-EWV601B-Video-Cassette-Recorder-User-TmpJd09UTT.html

First of all the vcr must be correctly connected - my guess is that in your case is not: the cable must be inserted in the IN connector on the VCR and from OUT use another cable to the tv. Now tune in the tuner from the VCR and save that channel - you must do that because the VCR doesn't know to do that by itself. After that just follow the procedure from the manual. If you don't have one here it is

    This is the manual for your vcr - in it you will find everything that you need to know, with detailed pictures of the connections and the Menu sections. You must copy/paste it in an empty browser window then, when the download is complete , click on the Save button (to keep a copy of it) Even better, after you save it you should print it.

    No, no setting to change, it's definitely a problem with the VCR. This is a "hardware" problem - most likely when you have moved the cable a small static spark occurred and it has fried the chip of the timer. The VCR is easily fixable - all you need to do is to replace that chip - but the price of the part plus the labor of repairman will be more than what you would pay for a ne unit. Shite happens, sorry.



    Either you will use it as is or you will have to buy a new one.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

Trying to help this older lady with a emerson tv/vcr combo. She has no manual with set. Setting up to record same station everyday at same time. VCR will record but when playing back she only gets sound no...


The TV should be on channel 2, 3, or 4 to work correctly. There might be a small switch on the back of the VCR that lets you select the channel that it wil play back on.

Also, look on the remote control for the VCR and see if there is a button labeled TV/Video, and press that while something is playing. This switches back and forth between the TV signal and the VCR signal and it could solve your problem.

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

woody



  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

If you have the instruction book that came with your remote you may find your VCR listed in it. If not, the book should give you the procedure to put the remote in the "search mode" which should help you make it operate the VCR.
