Question about Televison & Video
Hi Your problem is Copy protection on your DVD's! Without going into techno-bable, your DVD player detects that you are connected to a VCR, (You have no choice in your case as it is built-in), there are methods such as "Copyguard" and "Macrovision" that try to stop you from copying your favorite DVD onto VHS. The audio is left alone, but the video will go bright and dim, and the colors will be messed up, making the result un-watchable. You will find that the cheap DVD's you get for a couple of bucks at the discount store will play fine, as it would be too expensive to protect them. There are "little black boxes" available as "video stabilizers" that will cure this problem, (but you didn't hear that from me!),otherwise you must connect into a t.v. without a built-in VCR. P.S. Make sure the t.v. you switch to has RCA type A/V inputs on it, as you will have to purchase a separate RF modulator otherwise. Good Luck!

The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.

If you were using RCA cables, you may have had them hooked up wrong. I know this may sound like an easy fix, but I still hook them up wrong from time to time. Especially if there are more than one set of RCA hook-ups on the back of the unit. If you were using a S-video cable you shouldn't have to use RCA cables, if you had both hooked up that could cause your DVD/VCR unit to not work properly and only get a partial feed to the TV. I hope this helps a little. Good luck.
