Most likely a tuner issue with the VCR.

Works on occasion.


I believe this set has two relays in the power supply. One for standby power and one for full power. I have seen cases where the full power relay drops out or not energise causing the same symptom you describe. Lightly tapping on the relay sometimes identifies the culprit.
Hope this helps

How do I scan the channels on a Panasonic 1080i HDTV? This is for the conveter box hooked up to the DVD/VCR to the Panasonic 1080i HDTV'


The cable to the antenna and another cable from the TV needed to be hooked up and THEN follow the directions that came along with the converter box.
Channel 3/4 and scan., be sure the antenna is strong enough.

There was no need to touch the DVD/VCR box.

these are not cross compatible an rca hook up is a base band signal basically raw data, and coax(cable line) is a frequency with a carrier best suggestion I have is to buy a vcr with a coax out put and rca input that way the vcr can pick up the video signal then remodulate it onto a channel frequency and send it to the tv

How do L set up the converter with a TV , a vcr and "Dish" satte


It sounds like you need a three way splitter.
You need to reverse the connections; the splitter has input and out. Hook exterior antenna, converter box, and satellite to the three side terminals (out). Hook the single sided terminal to VCR input. Connect the VCR out to the TV input. This configuration assumes that you will be using the VCR to record from all inputs. The TV has to be set to channel 3 to act as a monitor for your other devices.
Hope this solves your dilemma.

Cannot connect a VCR/DVD player to Zenith SY1959Y


you don't need a code for the vcr/dvd combo to work on your tv. You need to make sure you have hooked up the cables correctly. remember that the dvd can be hooked up with the component cabels and the vhs may need to be hooked up thru the tv cable hookup.

DTA800B1 how or should I say why can I not see channels on the VCR when the converter is hooked up to it and the tv works just fine but will not set the channels on the vcr


instead of putting the converter box on ch4 ,put it on ch3 same as the vcr . set the converter box channel for the channel to be recorded, program the vcr to channel 3 for the channel to be recored. set the time and date on the vcr progam.tv does not need to be on for the program to be recored but the converter box needs to be on.

Hooking up a tv


Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok
1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr
2. then other scart from vcr into tv
3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr.
you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr.
If the channels change then your on the right av channel.
Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through.
You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead.
say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems.
Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok
