Question about Quasar VHQ401 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Quasar VHQ41M I purchased the VCR in 2001-02. It appears to be internally fixed on channel 3 and I need to use channel 4 for it to work on my TV. I searched for a button on the back andsides of rht VCR to see if there was a way I could switch the channel from 3 to 4, but there is none. I tried to manually change the VCR channel to 4, but it reverted back to 3. Can you give me any way of getting the channel to 4 so I can use it on my TV? Any assistance is most appreciated.

    I do not feel the my question was answered. I do not wantto disengage my dish connection to the TV every time I want to use the VCR. I am interested in knowing how to connect the VCR to the dish equipment so I can switch from TV to DVD to 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.

    Madam,
    In my solution, you will have not have any neccesity to 'disengage' your dish connection whenever you wish to view your DVD or VCR.
    It is a one time exercise - feed the signal from your dish directly to the Antenna socket of your TV (at the rear ofthe TV). Use AV inputs on the TV to connect to VCR and DVD. So whenever you desire to watch broadcast programs from the Dish Antenna, all you got to do is select 'TV' on the TV's remote and you will be able to recieve the Channels being recieved by the dish - DIRECTLY - on the TV. And when you wish to view your VCR, select 'video' on the TV's remote, and play the VCR, and you can watch the Tapes from the VCR. Input selection - TV program or VCR - is done through the Remote Control.

Internally change channel 3 to 4 on 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.

Thanks but i need more help


Don't be panic.
Check the batteries of your remotes control. FIRST
Be sure to aim the control to the sensor of your tv.

Usually you have one remote for your tv and the other to control the cable box or digital box.

You have to set the RMC10 again using the code of your tv Silvania (like the first time)
Then set your tv on channel 3


Another thing, be sure that you are hitting the right buttons.
The control doesn't work if you hit on the top any key instead of cable
What i mean?

The remote has on the top 4 key usually (tv, cable, vcr, aux, etc).
You must hit first cable to set the control to cable

1, Manually turn on the device(TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold the code search button until the red indicator stays on, then release the code search button.
3. Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, ect.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press the Channel up button repeatedly(up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks off with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press channel down button to backtrack through the library until device changes channel. Pressing Channel up changes direction forward again.
5. Press and release Mute to install code.
1, Manually turn on the device(TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.

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?
