Hi, You need to look on the cable itself to see if it is an RG58 or RG59 or RG6 or RG9. On an RG6 cable the center conductor is larger than on an RG58, The RG6 cable is used for incoming cable, satellite ect. An outside antenna is not usually equipped with an RG6 unless it is of the new HD variety, which is meant to go to one of the newer tvs. You can remedy the problem a couple of ways, use the ant out on the tv if you have one or use an adapter that fits 2 coax cables together and use a RG 58 jumper from the adapter to the vcr. Good Luck!
Hello. Have you tried unplugging the power from the VCR for more than 24hrs? This may resolve the "safe-mode" feature going back to "default" and permit regular use after this amount of time elapses. That is kind of unusual for the stepping upon the remote to cause this?
This is the problem with combo units. When the VCR develops the
usual drive problems due to the rubber parts wearing, the whole thing
is inop. They are a real pain to work on too. Be real nice
to your VCR fix ya shop and they should be able to save your unit.
Try cleaning the optics with one of those DVD cleaners.
When that probably doesn't work, you can hand clean the optics if you
can figure out how to get at them. (easy on some, hard on others)
If that doesn't work, it is prbably not worth going any farther
I just had this same problem. I thought that the timer was stuck and was the reason why the VCR wouldn't play. I just moved and thought the unit got broken in the move. However, I think it was just not hooked up properly to the TV. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and got it hooked up properly and it started working again (I tested the connection with a DVD player first). The flashing timer light went off as soon as I reset the clock. It seems odd that having it not hooked up properly should stop the VCR from playing, but that is what seemed to happen in my case. Hope this helps.
If you have tryed this with your VCR then Im guessing that there is a power supply issue. In most cases, a VCR would not be worth the repair or the diagnostic fee to inform you on how much the vcr will cost to repair. If you really want to playback VCR format buy a new one with a built in DVD recorder, buy some inexpensive DVD blanks, and put those Video tape onto the DVD format and they will never ever fade.
