Emerson VCR/DVD player - can't get tv (cable tv) to play anymore
For years we have had our Emerson VCR/DVD (EWD2203) player hooked up in
our office to a very very old 13 in. All of a sudden today I
played a vhs tape for my daughter and afterwards we could no longer get
regular tv programs. I tried all of the normal steps: making sure
the VCR/TV button was on VCR (We have to have in on VCR in order to
watch our cable tv), and that "VCR" mode was selected (not DVD).
All we get is blue screen. If we turn it to "TV" we get snow because we
don't get any working analog tv signals around here. When I tried
reprogramming the TV Channels, I got stuck at figuring out how to
"add/delete" channels. I want to do it manually because the auto
verson did not work.
QUESTION: When you are in the Channel set up screen, under Manual set
up, how do you "enter" the channel when the word "ADD" is
flashing? I keep pressing the Enter button, but nothing happens.

I have the same problem with my Emerson VCR. When the ADD button is flashing, just press the menu button to exit the menu. It will add. That's the only thing I know to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Put in a disk, press the dvd button, and play. Then put the TV on the correct input that the dvd is hooked to. Normally input Video 1 or 2 if using red-white-yellow cables. Channel 3 or 4 if using a Coax cable.
If you mean record from one tape to another, you'll need two VCR -
outout from first with the tape you want to play to the input of the seocnd with a tape to record.
Hit play on the first one and record on the second and off you go.
you're not telling much besides the fact that it doe'snt work.
One thing to try offcourse is cleaning the lense inside, remove cover and gently brush dust off etc.
If there's no dust build up, then I guess its just another emerson gone bad, NOT a rare occasion.
Use the warranty if valid, otherwise consider if the repair cost is worth it, or if you rather getting another DVD player that you can count on.
