Question about Televison & Video
I bought a new tv set. Hook up all necessary connections correctly. Still, I don't receive any picture. I went to ch 3 & 4 , press my input button on my tv remote, nothing.Tv set mention"No signal ". I also, try to see if it was on another channel.When I had my old tv. I always use my input button on my vcr remote. Now, that I have this new Sony Bravia. I don't have codes to use for this tv.For programming channels.So, what is the problem??

Hi This problem has been around for some time when connecting a DVD player to an older tv, and now has become a problem with newer VCR's. You must purchase a device called an RF Modulator which will allow you to connect to the older tv. We sell them at our shop for $30.00 but I have seen them quite often for $65.00 and up...so it pays to shop around. Good Luck

Usually one connects a RF [cable tv, Dish tv, antenna ] cable to the INPUT of VCR & a RF cable output to tv (antenna )INPUT .The reason is that if you are watching TV reception (Cable, Dish, etc) and you want to watch VCR tape, just push the tape in and it should start playing picture.
From what I understand that you are trying to say:: [ YOUR NEW TV ! ] you MUST connect to the RCA jacks, CABLE S with RCA plugs that come out of the VCR to the new TV [ INPUT & OUTPUT] jacks .When you ["" use input botton on VCR remote"" ] you are using a DIFFERENT input signal. You are not letting the TV know that you are changing the signal from RF(antenna, Cable, Dish,etc)to the RCA signal ["" I use my input botton on my vcr remote""]
