Question about Goldstar Televison & Video

1 Answer

No movie picture

To whom it may concern:
The actual VCR is functional, but the movie will not show on the tv screen. I need to know which wires to look for and where to plug them in.
Also, should I connect the VCR with the cable box so that the tv screen does not go snowy everytime I press the VCR power button? How?
Thank you,
Jacqueline

If you want to record from cable to your vcr the usual configuration is either cable to cable box, cable box to vcr, and vcr to tv. If you want to get rid of the snowy pictures, you can plug the cable box directly to the tv and separately to the vcr, and you can also plug the vcr into the tv. but the tv has to have two inputs
the best configuration will be the black, screw in, coaxial cable from the cable box to the television and the red, white and yellow RCA plugs from the cable box to the vcr in.
then the vcr our red whit and yellow cables to the back of the tv.
To watch vcr, switch the tv to video mode
to watch cable, switch tv to channel 3 or 4, depending on the cable service.
please let me know if you have questions.

Does the VCR shut its self off after you press play or is it just not showing on your TV? I have an older model TV and I have to put it on and AUX channel by pressing input on the remote then I am able to play any VHS. If it is your VCR that won't let you even press play then it may need to be cleaned or repaired.

Time shows on the screen while the movie is playing


You could look at the Toshiba website to see if they have the manual. Otherwise you need to look at the menu for something like "on-screen display". And see if it is set ON.

The VCR is playing and functioning, but the picture won't show up on the TV. I have all the channels set and it should be working, but the TV is the black and white static. Could it need dusted? It hasn't...


make sure the tv vcr button on the vcr is selected to vcr and that you have the tv on channel 3 or 4. try pushing the tv vcr button a few times back and forth on channel 3 then on 4. if that doesnt work try hooking the vcr up to the tv with the rca jacks. they will be yellow, white and red or maybe only two from the vcr yellow and white. hook them up the the correct input on the tv and change the input on the tv. if that doesnt work, your vcr may be done.

I cant record TV


Proper setting is required. This time i don't know what connection you have, in case you use RF IN, fine tune your VCR's Tuner to the desired channel you wish to record. If you connect via A/V IN, select proper input on your VCR. Good Luck

I have certain movies for my grandchildren. There


I assume the picture after viewing your "certain movie" you have a snowy type of picture with sound? This is because your "certain movie" will have a bad section or worn section of tape & is making the heads dirty. Is there a part of the "certain movie" that gives wavy lines or the picture breaks up? If a tape is constantly used it causes the oxide coating of the tape to flake & dirty your heads. You could try a head cleaning tape although these sometimes do not do a thorough clean.

Can't get vcr to record


Make sure you are giving the VCR a signal.
If using a RF source (cable or antenna), make sure the VCR's tuner is set up for the right type and channels.
When trying to record put the TV's input to the VCR to make sure it is getting what you want.

Since you have had this problem with other VCR's, it is very likely to be a problem with the connecting cables. Defective cables, or too many cables (daisy-chaining more than a few devices) can cause ghosting, which is what you're experiencing. Try a new set of cables from the TV to the VCR, and also from the VCR to any cable, satellite or outside antenna.
