SOURCE: Hook up vcr

The new Sony does not have the coax connections. It is crazy! If your cable box doesn't have the Audio/Video cable, you have to get a different box from the cable company. I find this new Sony annoying! I am trying to connect it also and when I attempt to use "Setup," I am getting a message that says "no S video detected." Somehow I get the Setup screen sometimes but when I attempt to use the up/down arrows to set stuff up, it changes my tv setting to VGA or HDMI. I am very frustrated with this! Help!

SOURCE: I am trying to hook up this VCR to a digital TV

Well I will tell you what the colours mean first. RED is right audio and WHITE is Left audio. YELLOW is Video.
I don't think it will matter if you plug the white or red into white, but the yellow must go into yellow. Is the device with white & yellow mono and not a stereo device? As that would explain why it's not got a red terminal.
Wouldn't it be better to connect via the scart socket, they must have both got one. If you are using the scart on the TV for something else, you could get one of these switching boxes from Amazon.

Red light blinking won't accept tape


If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

My vcr plays in black and white only...why isnt there color on the tv


Assuming that you're not playing a B/W tape, perhaps you plugged your AV video cable with a RCA port intended for component. Don't mix the colors... yellow plugs into yellow... not red, not green, not blue.

The litle green light blinks all the time.


Tries the unit unplug,replug it back like about an hour.The unit should be resetting itself.Now the green power light should be stable again now vcr should be work again,still blinking green power light mean the unit have power circuitries issues,not worth trying to fixed the unit.Because VCR devices are pretty cheap these day,can buy a new one like $40 bucks.

Black and white only when playing a DVD or VHS hooked up to my Sony Bravia 32" LCD TV.


What type of connections are you using?

If you are using coax cable check to make sure that the TV is on the proper channel that the DVD/VCR is switched to i.e. 3 or 4.

If you are using Componant video (red, green, blue, and red, white) verify that the green is plugged in all the way on both the TV and DVD/VCR and try connecting it to a different Componant input on the TV.

Note: the TV may be YCbCr, and DVD/VCR YPbPr or vice versa these two types usually are not compatible with each other. YCbCr is a digital signal and YPbPr is an analog signal.

If you are using A/V video cables or (yellow, red, white) check the DVD/VCR video setting to see if it is in progressive scan mode, as this can cause a problem with some TV sets that are not compatible.

I would like to know how to connect a dvd player through my samsung vcr the inputs in the back i am not familiar with there are two sets of yellow white and red connections with one side for output and...


Connect from dvd OUT to vcr IN
The yellow connecter is video, red is right audio and white is left audio.
You can purchase converter leads (scart to phono(the red/white/yellow connecters) or many other combinations) if needed.
If you have scart connections ( a block of 21 pins) then use that if possible as it will give a better picture.
Connect the dvd out to vcr in and vcr out to the tv in.
NOTE. if you connect this way you will find that the copyright protection will make viewing dvds quite poor quality and may even be black and white or even the picture may "roll"
You may want to buy a scart block to connect more scarts to the tv then it has, also you can get these with different connections.

VHS to Easy capture to computer


The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

Different sound to picture


When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.

Hooking up a d.v.d player to a vcr/tv combo?


RCA plugs (the yellow, red, and white outlets you speak of) consist of a video plug (yellow) and stereo plugs for audio (red and white). Just match the colors from the DVD RCA colors to the RCA hook-ups on the TV (ex. Yellow the Yellow, White to White).

You don't need to worry about the red one, it just makes the DVD player play stereo audio. Instead, you'll have mono, which is fine, and most modern players can detect mono and switch it for you so don't worry about changing settings and what not (unless you're missing sound on one side.)

Can't get my dvd/vcr to tape and play back


Color codes for A/V cables:

Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)

Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?

If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.

If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.

You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

How do you connect the VCR Mitsubishi HS-U446 to record a TV show?


Usually the standard color coding for those connections are yellow, red and white. Yellow for video, red and white for audio left and right if it is stereo. Also pay attention on the the label of your vcr if it is input or output. You need need to connect it from output of your vcr to the input of your tv set. TV have also the same color coding. By the way the cable you use for this purpose is what we called RCA, which is also color coded. good luck!
