Question about Sharp VC-H800U VHS VCR
The Power LED that is usually either red or green started blinking yellow and won't stop, even if VCR is unplugged and then plugged in again.
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!

Sound like the TV is in protection mode. This happens when a part goes bad inside. the TV turns OFF to protect the other parts from being damaged.
Most commonly it's a power supply related issue. A bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board is to blame.
For a do-it-yourself fixer with electronic experience, a Service Manual is the best for trouble shooting the problem down to the bad part. Normally, you can find it over the internet for less than $20.

I think it's capacitor issue on the power supply board. open it, look for power supply board and fine bloated capacitor and replace it.
