Screen will be blue. It Is known as video mute
What happens when you play a cassette now?
If you are still getting sound, and no picture, then the video heads are dirty.
Get a good Wet Type Cleaning cassete and clean the Video heads. Do 2-3 runs of the tape, and check if picture is now visible.

Hi. Switch off (mains switch) the VCR. Then see if you can change channels with your TV remote. Blue screen mostly means that no channel has been programmed. If there is , you should at least have the sound. So, if you have sound, there is an internal problem in the TV. If no sound appears, try to get into setup mode (button Menu)
and programm your channels. I suppose there is signal on your normal areal connection. Check this out with another TV set, or use the tuner from you VRC. I know there are a lot of possibilities, but you can sort this out, step by step. Good luck.
blue screen indicares that there is a problem in blue cathode circuit.
1 blue video output supply.
2 blue video ckt defective
3 signal from chroma ic to blue cathode missing.
4 loose connector
5 crt base loose.
6 chroma ic defective.
I think sound will be ok .
On some TV's the screen will go blue if there is not a strong, solid video signal present. This is to prevent the showing of very snowy or all snow channels, or garbled, mixed-up external video signals. This is normal. On some VCR's the video signal changes when the FF or REW search feature is used, and this could trigger the TV to go to blue screen. The only way around this if you can enter the TV's menu and turn off the blue screen feature.
