Picture going dark then brighter

I have an older Ge than this model however this one looked the closest. the DVD is hooked through the VCR and when played the picture gets dark for about 10 seconds then gets light and then back dark again. It continues in this cycle throughout the movie. This only happens when the movie is palyed not when you are in the menu screen.

I had a similar problem on a different DVD player and found that if I plugged it into the TV the problem went away.

This is due to the copy protection on the DVD that prevents perfect copies of DVD onto VHS. By hooking it up directly to the TV, of course it will go away because it's not going through a VCR.

My Ecco TV is playing but the problem is pic is not clear it's dark . Please help

The screen may become dark if Picture mode is set to Cinema or Custom. If the screen continues to remain dark after changing the picture quality mode, go to the Backlight, Picture, Brightness menu and adjust the brightness to your liking. When Power Saving is fixed to Low or High, the screen becomes dark. Some TVs have a Light Sensor so the picture will just become brighter or darker depending on the lighting in the room.
You can also try programming from a different source, like a DVD player or VCR to check whether the problem is caused by the device that sends the signal to the TV.

I have a maganovox combo system, converter box, older model zenithe tv and rf modular. How do I connect all this to record and look at vcr on combo? I need step by step of hooking up all cords and plugs....

You dont need the rf modulator. Use a female to male rf, antenna cord and plug from the RF out on the back of your combo to the TV. Now you need to tune your TV on analogue mode until you find the dvd/vcr picture. Have the combo on when you're doing this.

Can't get my VCR to work

It sounds like you need to purchase a converter box from a place like Radio Shack. This box converts the signal so that your televison understands. I think this box is around $20.00. Just call Radio Shack our a place like walmart and tell them what is going on and they will fix you up. Then you can use channels 3 or 4. I hope this helps!

Can't get my VCR to work

FIRST!!! Make sure you have the coax or AV cables plugged into jacks marked out on the machine.....then....

*If you have it hooked up with a Coax cable, you should immediately have picture and sound when you turn it on. Make sure you have a dvd/vhs running and switch between channel 3 and 4. if this doesn't work, make sure that you have the cable connected to the one marked 'in' or 'cable in' or 'ant in'. then retry the previous steps.

*If you have it hooked up through A/V cables (Red/Yellow/White), make sure you have them all connected to the same set of jacks. They should be labeled Aux 1 or something similar and are generally surrounded by a box molded into the TV's plastic casing. You will then have to use the TV remote to switch TV/Video settings until you get to the one that matches the Aux jacks you have it plugged into. Again...make sure a dvd or vhs is running and keep flipping until you find a picture.

Hope this helps!!!

Fading dvd picture

DVDs are recorded in Macrovision* format which distorts the video when playing through a VCR. This is an anti recording device to prevent duplication. You can try finding a decoder that connects between the player and VCR to override this

Not a good signal

You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.
