I purchased a Funai model F2820M VHS player/recorder from ebay that did not come with a cable to connect it to the television. All it had was the power cord attached to the VHS player. Do you know where I could buy a connector cord for this? Would appreciate your help. Thanks, Helen Burgess.

please note in your vhs dvd manual it tells which dvd (maxell, tdk etc.)are compatible with the recorder okay do you have a cable/satellite box connected to tv/monitor? yes or no
yes- is the the tv on ch 3? cable connected to cable box in, cable box out connected to dvd in,(on dvd set up menu make sure broadcast is cable) dvd out connect to tv... ? please note some dvd recorder will not record HBO (you can record on vhs tape)
no connect antenna to dvd in, dvd out goes to tv.....
You need to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the digital converter box is set to broadcast on) to record a program. The digital converter box has to be set to the channel you want to record the show from.
Connect with RCA cable to RCA jacks\plugs::
output [player] audio to INPUT [recorder] OUTPUT [player] Video to INPUT [recorder]
Place blank tape in RECORDER, Tape that you want to record from into PLAYER.Press Record [recorder machine], wait one second, press PAUSE.( thats to give record tape "breathing" space.) Set up your player tape to start playing. When you know what you want to record, press PAUSE again to begining recording. Press PAUSE after the recorded section to install 2nd tape, etc. etc.
NOTE:: some VCRs use PAUSE 2nd time to release and continue recording, while some machines you must press RECORD button again to release PAUSE. you must expirement before begining your project.
first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

Probably cabled wrong.
Make sure the VCR is getting a signal to record.
Put in a movie and get the TV set up to watch it.
Now put in your blank tape and switch the VCR to what you want to record and make sure you can see it on the TV.
Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.
If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.
Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.
You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US).
The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder.
Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example:
Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want
