Well the dvd mechanism is probably broken now and that is the reason the system shutdown, philips can offer you a out of warranty exchange price to get it exchanged but they probably don't carry repair parts for this unit anymore, I would buy a new system

Hello,

I believe you are using a RF wire Connecting a VHS, then searching TV station is an old way. I would recommend you use a RCA wire. By so doing, you won't need to tune any station on your TV. All you need to is select Source (AV) on the TV and the VHS would automatically display on your TV.

Below is what the RCA cord looks like:

The yellow stands for video (display), while the red and white stands for audio left and right (sound).

Purchase this cord from any electronics part store within your area, it's not expensive at all.

Look at the back of your TV, connect the yellow cord to "Video IN", connect the red and white to "Audio IN". Then connect the other end of the cord to Yellow: "Video OUT", and red or white to "Audio OUT", at the back of the VHS.

After the above connection, turn on the VHS, insert a tape, and press play. While the VHS is play, turn on the TV, select Source (AV) on your TV and your VHS will start displaying and you will hear sound.

I hope the above is clear. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards.

Have surround sound only when play dvd..


if you have a sat/cable box it may have audio outputs that you can connect to the input of the surround unit or if your tv has an audio uotput it can be connected to the surround unit. The audio outs of the tv may or may not adjust with the tv volume. This will not produce a true surround signal because th tv does not output a true surround signal. But yo can adjust the surround unit to get a nice sound.

I have the same A/V receiver and in my setup there is an audio output (red and white able) coming from DVD player directly into Zenith Z763B. The video from DVD Player goes to TV input (yellow cable).
There might be alternatives to the setup mentioned above but I like to watch movie in a surround sound, rather than output from TV.

VCR Not Accepting Certain VHS Tape


I had this happen once and all I did to correct it was to fast forward it just slightly or manually wind it past the leader strip (the clear or white part at the beginning). To do it manually, there is a small hole you must insert a toothpick (or something else as small) to push the pin in and then advance it with your finger while holding the pin in. Hope this helps.

VHS side doesn't have pictures


the connection from your player to TV is only single output not separated DVD and VHS. If there is picture when used on DVD then you should be having problem with your VHS player. Question.... is your unit new? Is this the first time you encounter this problem? what is the brand of your player?

No sound Problem - Philips VR550 VHS VCR


If your pre-recorded tapes also play without sound, then check the scart lead is in straight.

If not, then it's more likely to be a dirty audio head.

Try a VHS head cleaner tape.

VHS to DVD


You would need a tv tuner on your pc's graphics card, then you could hook up the vcr with an adapter and record the vhs to your pc, then you would have to burn that to dvd. I don't think you can go directly from vhs to dvd, without an actual device (where there are those that do that.) ADS Tech's $100 DVD Xpress DX2. The DX2 has a video converter that can accept composite or S-Video signals. It converts these to digital format and sends them to a PC via a USB connection. It comes with Ulead VideoStudio 9 SE DVD software for editing the video.

Good luck!
