Question about Quasar VHQ401 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Internally change channel 3 to 4 on VCR

The closest model VCR I have is the one listed above. The model number on my VCR is VHQ41M. I purchased in 2001-02. In order to hook up to my TV, I need the VCR channel on 4, but my VCR is programmed for 3. I could not locate any buttons on the back or side to change it from 3 to 4. I tried to manually change the channel to 4, but the VCR reverted back to channel 3 and, thus, I cannot get it to play tapes on the TV. Is the VCR programmed internally somehow? And if so, is there any way to change it internally to channel 4? Can you assist in any way -- other than recommendng the purchase of another VCR?

Hi, In most VCRs, as you have posted, there is a switch at the back where you can select the output to either Ch 3 or 4. In some cases, the switch is deep inside and you have to remove a small squarish rubber covering to expose the hole. It is normally close to the antenna input/output. More often than not it is a simple sliding 2 position switch. You would need any tool that can reach and sturdy enough to slide the switch. Internally program output channel selector is very possible, I would guess that its selectable via the menu set-up tabs. A question pls, How did you "I tried to manually change the channel to 4, but the VCR reverted back to channel 3..." Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up or further information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,
    If you can't still find the selector switch, maybe you need to open the VCR. If you are comfortable working with a screwdriver and work very carefully, then it is possible to do it yourself. Otherwise, you might be better off asking a qualified service professional.
    Should you venture opening the VCR, the switch should be located in a rectangular shiny block component towards the rear of the unit and possible interfaced with your antenna connector and your RF output connector (the one that goes to your TV). The RF modulator is roughly 1cm thick by 2-3cm high and 4-5cm wide. only 1 connector with 4-5 wires is attached. You have to poke around that RF block to locate and move the switch.

    and Hello again,
    It may also be possible that you have a European/Middle East version that uses UHF and not Ch 3 or 4, just a thought
    Cheers

I need a code for RCA remote RCR311STR for a Durabrand television model BH2004D.


In order for the 4 component universal remote to control your TV, you must program it with the TV code that matches your TV. These instructions explain the preferred method of programming the remote-the Direct Entry method.
  1. Manually turn on the TV.
  2. Locate the enclosed TV Code List. Find your brand of TV.
  3. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH key until the indicator light illuminates. Then release the CODE SEARCH key.
  4. Press and release the TV key. The indicator light blinks and then remains lit.
  5. Use the number keys to enter the first code listed for your brand. After you enter a valid three-digit code, the indicator light turns off. Note: If you enter an invalid code, the LED flashes rapidly for two seconds. Start over at step 3.
  6. Aim the remote at your TV and press the ON•OFF key. If your TV turns off, you have found the correct code.
  7. Write the code down for future reference.
  8. If your TV doesn't turn off, repeat steps 3-6 above, entering the next code for your brand. If none of the codes work or your brand is not listed, use one of the Code Search methods to program this remote.

Hello,
Please hook up VCR with TV through RF cable and check picture of VCR playback in TV.

Now you can hook DVD player video-audio out in VCR input and can have dvd playback picture in TV via VCR modulator.

If you want to listen sound via receiver then hook audio red-white cable between VCR audio out and receiver audio in terminals.

Let me know exact model numbers of units to help you out more.
Thank you.

VHQ41M VCR


Quasar VCRs at least used to be manufactured by Panasonic. I googled for a cross reference (Quasar model to identical Panasonic) but didn't come up with what looks like a quick cross. I'd go to Panasonic's site and look: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Video/VCRs/VCRs.list.75431 Did you also get the matching remote? If so, advanced setup should be easy. If not, obtain a remote with the needed capabilities, as advanced functions cannot be done with the VCR located buttons (most late VCRs anyway).

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.

I am not conversant with VCRs sold in the United states, but - a VCR is a VCR is a VCR. So, can i suggest an alternate solution to your problem? Why not use the AV out sockets of your VCR and hook them to the AV IN sockets of your TV? In this manner, you you also get a better image. And of course, you feed In the signal source (Antenna, cable Box, etc) directly to the TV, and use your remote to switch to AV mode whenever you desire to watch movies or Tape.

VCR model VHQ 41m


I have not heard of one that doesn't have the selector switch to change to 3 or 4, Could it perhaps be in the front behind a door or just somewhere else?
