The power went off and back on early one morning. Now the tv will display the channel number on the screen but will not change channels. You must turn on the vcr in order to change channels. I took the batteries out for 12 hours and also held the number 1 down for over 60 seconds to drain the micropocessor. I have unpluged the tv, receiver, and vcr for over 12 hours. I have tried everything on the remote and even the controls on the tv does not work.

Leon, I believe models that are able to do this have a built in tuner, so that means cable would go into VCR/DVD player/recorder then to TV.
Your TV would be set on Channel 3 or 4 and the VCR/DVD would then be used to change channels and also allow recording of program.
cable box needs connected to the antenna in on the vcr..the setup is ..cable box..vcr combo ..tv ..unless your tv has multiple inputs like ours..most of the new ones require a digital signal..it may reqiure a converter box..
Not if the unit itself still works; that is, it still plays videotapes and DVDs (with picture and sound).
Check your TV, you may have the wrong input selected for your unit (and/or other connected devices), or the TV is on the wrong channel; hence why you can't see anything from the VCR.
As for the ComCast box, give them a call and ask about it - quote the box number, and ask if it is digital or analogue - if it is the latter, they should replace the box free of charge as part of your cable subscription.
You do not need a new combo unit, unless you want one later which has a digital tuner. All it means is that you have no analogue TV channels in your combo unit.

You will need to complete a channel scan from the tvs menu. I assume you have basic cable and that your cable company is still providing analog channels for you to be able to pick up any transmission on this telvision with the digital changeover and all.
Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?
If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on
which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one
at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR
(not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR
remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure
your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the
VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.
If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown
on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape,
select the channel you want to record and press the record button.
If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the
TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change
When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back
onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press
the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view
