Ok If you are connecting the VCR through the cable or antenna fitting on the TV set, you will have to see what channel the TV set has to be on. Look at the back of the VCR at the RF output and there should be a small channel switch. You also must tune the VCR in to recive cable channels unless you are using a cable decoder box. Good Luck

Blue screen: Not Support!

It sounds like you have no signal being detected by the TV. Check your connections to the TV from your cable box or satelite reciever to be sure they're plugged in tightly. If you have a DVD player or VCR, try watching something from one of them to see if you get a picture. If you do, then your problem may be with your cable box or satelite reciever, and not the TV.
Good luck.

How can I get audio and video out from my tv if it only has audio and video in.I'm trying to connect a dvd recorder to record programs off the tv but tv does'nt have output signal.

connect dvd input cable (three banana plugs red, white, and yellow) to the video and audio output on a vcr, then take a screw on cable from the Ant. to the vcr. you will have to tune the vcr to the programs channel to record the picture. The vcr manual should tell you where the signal will be going, The picture should also go to the tv on ch 3 or 4 as when you play a vcr tape.

My akai receiver to my vcr

hi my name is mark, if you have cables. first unplug the power cords to the vcr and the receiver. on the back of the vcr there will an input and an output audio and video connectors. if your vcr does not have them you will need a new vcr that does. if you just want sound, find the Output connectors. there will two. they will be idenified as Audio OUT. plug one end of the red plug into the one labeled Audio R OUT, then the white in the one labeled Audio L OUT. if you are connecting the video up connect the yellow plug to the connector labeled Video OUT. the other ends connect to the receiver, on the back of the reciever find connectors labeled vcr or dvd AUDIO IN. then connect the red plug to the connector labeled R IN and the white plug to the connector labeled L IN.if you are just hooking up sound you done. to hook up video find vcr dvd Video IN and connect the yellow plug to the Video IN. on reciever. if you want the reciever to switch the TV you also need to run a yellow video cable from Video Out from receiver to Video IN on back of TV. when finished plug in vcr and receiver. select dvd or vcr on receiver to listen ot vcr on the receiver i dont know what model you have or it features i hope this helps thanks for your question.

Again, I don't know how to find the AV mode.

Madelaine,
I had the same problem just now trying to get my Tivax STB-T8 converter to work the 1st time I tried to set it up. I couldn't see anything on the TV or VCR that indicated what "external AV mode" is or if either unit had it.

The ONLY change I made -- on both the TV & the converter box -- was to switch the "ch 3 or ch 4" from ch 4 to ch 3. (I'd always used my TV & VCR on the ch 4 setting.) Once I did that, I got the menu & was able to proceed w/the next steps & it appears to work.

One caveat: I have yet to figure how the VCR works in all of this. I have it hooked up in the mix, but have yet to attempt to have both the VCR & TV on. (Maybe I don't need to do that anymore -- I may have done that cuz my external antenna was hooked up to the VCR & then the VCR to the TV & that's how i got a decent signal.)

I have no clue as to what the difference is betw ch 3 & ch 4 or if it would solve your seemingly similar problem on your particular TV & converter combination, but it would be worth giving it a shot.

If it works, I'd be interested to hear your feedback.
Fingers crossed -- Jim

Different sound to picture

When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.

your set has a coaxal DIGITAL output so you must have a coaxal digital input to your reciever and that input must be assighned in the reciever to the selected input. page 10 of your manual explains how to hook up to the tv. your receiver's manual will tell you how to assighn the coax input.

Multiple video inputs

Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
