Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps

Samsung DVD-V3650 Combo Player ejects most videotapes without playing them

You can only compensate for minor scratches. As for the vcr side the rollers could be dirty or the brake worn out. The tensioner may be too sensitive as well. Basically the mechanism probably needs servicing.

Why GE TV plays color DVD/VCR tapes in black and white

Some inputs on tvs won't process the color signal. Try one of the other inputs. Mine does the same. If u have already used the working ones on something else, U will need a switch to select one or the other available at Radio Shack if u can find one.

Hi,can i replace dvd reader in philips DVP620VR combo?Producing clicking sound inside disc made no difference,7 years old.Am in New Zealand. Regards Andy

The DVD Drive wasn't available as a complete replacement part so you had to purchase the Laser Unit as an individual part and replace it. I think that the Laser Unit is now discontinued but if you could find a replacement it normally isn't cost effective on a system of this age.

I have my Samsung model dvd V9800 hooked up to my RCA RT2906. The dvd side is showing a picture but the video side is not. The RCA RT2906 has have a hook up for a vcr player by it's self but I do not think...

VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output.
Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
