Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I am having difficulty when I try to program the VCR to tape a TV show that I am not watching. When I go through the nine steps that are outlined in the manual on pages 24 and 25 the TV will tape for me but only the channel that I was last watching before I turned it off. It does not tape the Channel that I programmed in. Please advise. Thanks

If you are useing a cabel box you need to split your cable before the cable box with a two set coupler and run the second cable line to the VCR input and this should solve your problem. if you want to record the chanels from your cable box and not watch a diffrent chanel you can leave it hooked as is and select the chanel you want to record with your cable box tunner and leave it turned on, set the vcr to record channel 3 or 4 which ever is the channel you leave your tv tunner on and record that way.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

I am wondering how to record a tv show on a blank VCR tape. The VCR I have is a Memorex MVR2031 VHS VCR. Can you help with step by step directions?


Cable from Programming source to TV. Tv OUTPUT cables to VCR INPUT. You will need to check the VCR Manual if you still have it. retrevo.com doesn't have your model listed since it's classified as obsolete, even though many people still have VCR only units.


You have to set your recording channels on the TV to match the switches on the VCR. May have to do it by menus, remotes or both and or just switches on the back of your units.

Here are some basic how-tos:

Setup varies based on source of programming (ie satellite, cable, etc) Good luck. Hope this has helped.

How do i record a show onto a tape?


lets say you are hooked up correctly (cable to VCR in (from cable/sat box) & cable to TV from VCR out) and the VCR is set to Ch 3,, (PLEASE NOTE THE TV MUST BE ON CH 3)

program a recording
the VCR clock / date must be set and not flashing 12:00
then you go to menu, program a recording by imputing the start time / end time of the show and the date it will be recorded and Ch 3...(you might have to set your cable box for the same date/time as the VCR or manually turn to that ch you wish to record that morning or before you go to bed) put a new tape in the machine....

manual recording
a show,game or special comes on and you sitting and want to watch and record and even edit (no commercials) put tape in... press record button get the remote so you can pause (on commercials) and press pause again to resume recording

How do I get from cable TV to DVD player


All you should have to do is press the dvd button on your remote to go to the dvd player. Then press the vcr button to go back to the cable tv, if it is hooked up the same way as mine. And you can tell if it is by putting in a vhf tape and you can start watching it play. Otherwise you will need to press the input button on your tv remote until you see the vcr or dvd main screen. from there press the dvd button on your remote for the dvd player or the vcr button for your vhf. After you are done with watching your movies and wish to go back to the cable or tv programs use the tv remote and press input until the shows come back on

How to connect a vcr for recording programs


1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

Recording


Does it record when you are simultaneously watching a program? if yes, then recording circuits are OK. It is definitely a problem of settings. Try doing it again step by step. And before you program for timer recording, make sure that the VCR clock is set for correct time.

My Tv is turning off by itself


if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
