hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

Most dvd recorders will only accept dvd+r's or dvd-r's, if yours will not accept dvd+r's then try dvd-r's.

This usually means that at best the DVD lens needs cleaning, so use a DVD cleaning disc and / or air duster to clean it or that there is a serious error with the DVD recorder itself an it will need replacing. Unfortunately this series of Tosh machines have had many issues with the DVD reliability.

Can not get the DVD player to record to our new LCD TV. Worked fine with the older CRT model. It will play OK. Do I need an upconcertter to make this work?


What kind of connection (wire) are you using to connect the DVD player to the TV? Is it composite (RCA, yellow), component (3X RCA, blue, red, green), S-video (Mini-DIN, like a computer keyboard or mouse connector), DVI (Like a wider computer monitor connector), HDMI (Wider and thinner but like a USB connector)?

Connecting DVD recorder to TV and SKY box


A simple solution - aerial input socket error - wrong socket!!

There are too many choices on the DVD record/play machine. When the plug came out - it was pushed back into the wrong socket.

Cannot tune -in my panasonic vcr. it plays tapes but will not record. I have wired together the tv, sky box and vcr in what seems the obvious way (and every alternative) but no joy so far. can you help?


The main aerial goes into the vcr,a fly lead then comes out of the vcr into the tv,a scart lead from av1 on the vcr into the tv.If you want to record from sky and the vcr has two scart sockets then connect a scart lead from the sky into av2 on the vcr,when you record from sky you select av2 on the vcr as your record channel

I have a philips dvdr70


From the Sky box, plug one SCART lead to your recorder and plug another to your TV. Then plug a SCART from the TV to the recorder.

You can then select the SCART connector for the sky box to record programs.

This will work after the digital switchover. The switchover is only for 'normal' tv signals from your tv aerial
