Turn the VCR on and remove any tape. Press the record button and the VHS/TV button simultaneously. You should see a message saying the VCR is unlocked. It worked for me.

    Holding the record and VCR/TV buttons seemed to activate the lock. Holding the stop/eject button unlocked it.

Hold down the stop/eject button for about 10 seconds and it will turn the lock off.

Need tv code for Quasar LSSQ0227 its a comcast


had this problem myself and I assure you that a) Comcast is populated by idiots without training, and b) that Quasar hasn't 'deliberately designed' their tvs to not work with Comcast remotes, which is what Comcast will tell you.
Solution: Add a 1 to the code, ie 10250, 10051 etc. Quasar is a 5 digit code, not 4 as Comcast believes.

Connecting older model quasar to dvd/vcr player (magnavox)


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the only reason you would need/use a modulator is when the DVD/VCR has no RF OUT and the Quasar TV has no Audio/Video IN. If this were the case, then connections would be:
  • yellow Video Out of DVD/VCD to yellow Video IN of modulator;
  • red/white Audio Out of DVD/VCR to red/white Audio In of modulator;

  • modulator RF Out to RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar;
  • TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4;
  • if Modulator has no RF OUT but instead has a small antenna, still the TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4.
If however, the DVD/VCR has an RF OUT, then a coaxial patch cord from this could be connected to the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the Quasar. The TV has to be set to either Channel 3 or 4. There would be no need for the modulator.

VCR DOES NOT WORK WITH NEW CABLE BOX


If you can get some of the stations without the box (often the case for those who subscribe to digital cable or movie channels), then one setup is to split the raw cable and feed the box and the TV, then have the box feed the VCR and hook up the VCR composite video and line level audio outputs to the TV. The VCR tuner would always be set to the VHF frequency your cable box RF output is on, usually ch. 2, 3 or 4. This setup allows PIP to work, with the TV tuner limited to unscrambled analog stations, and it also allows you to tape anything coming through the box, while watching unscrambled analog stations on the TV. However, it requires the VCR to be on and the TV set to the external video input to simply watch what is coming through the cable box. There are other ways to set this up with more flexibility using splitters and A/B switches, or you can look for a special switch box that handles the job. The above assumes your TV has composite video and line level audio inputs. The only way to have full flexibility to watch any scrambled or unscrambled station at the same time as taping a scrambled station is to have 2 cable boxes. The only way to have your VCR control the cable box and record different programs by switching the box by itself is to have a VCR with a cable box controller, also known as a cable "mouse". Hope this helps
