First make sure you are hooked up in back. You can go either way. Cable out to tv, Cable or RF in from antenna should be from what you are using like cable, satellite, or just antenna. Then you should have set put on channel 3 or 4 and you can switch that in back of VCR also. Then if you don't see picture on screen with vcr on then find channel that you are coming in on like for satellite you need it to be on 3 or 4, cable you can just put it on the channel you want to record. The other way are from Video Jacks the red, white, yellow. If this is the way you are hooked in then you should look for video 1, 2 or which ever you are hooked into and find on set. then look on vcr for video or aux 1, 2 or depending on the one you are hooked in to. Hope this helps. If not then tell what you are using and what you have done so far!

How do i record a show onto a tape?

lets say you are hooked up correctly (cable to VCR in (from cable/sat box) & cable to TV from VCR out) and the VCR is set to Ch 3,, (PLEASE NOTE THE TV MUST BE ON CH 3)

program a recording
the VCR clock / date must be set and not flashing 12:00
then you go to menu, program a recording by imputing the start time / end time of the show and the date it will be recorded and Ch 3...(you might have to set your cable box for the same date/time as the VCR or manually turn to that ch you wish to record that morning or before you go to bed) put a new tape in the machine....

manual recording
a show,game or special comes on and you sitting and want to watch and record and even edit (no commercials) put tape in... press record button get the remote so you can pause (on commercials) and press pause again to resume recording

Black and white on my tapes

Is the vcr sitting directly on top of, or underneath the TV? If so, this could be causing magnetic/static interference, and that's not good. It's good practice not to have anything that uses tape near speakers or TV's. Hope this helps.

Another possibility is the signal you are recording is coming from a cable box/digital cable box/satellite cable box. Try recording using the RCA cable inputs and outputs, instead of 75 Ohm cable, if applicable.

Volume loss after VCR recording

Try adjusting tracking to detent Sounds like audio heads are miss aligned . Does your unit have audio levels if so turn them up when recording. Try adjusting tracking or try patching recording unit to the tv .If it has L/R video inputs use the same deck you recorded on for playback. .

Memorex MVD4544 VCR will not record

Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

Recording problem on Sony SLV-R1000

The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.

Recording from DVR to Cassette using this?

Well, generally, you simply need a Cable of the RCA 3way A/V cable variety, usually with Red, Yellow & White RCA plugs on the end... there should be corresponding RCA Sockets on each machine.. Plug the leads in colour to colour, then insert tape in VCR and select the Auxiliary Input (Or whatever input it is actually called) to Record from... start "Recording" Then on the DVR start "Play" and ya should be all up & running. What I do first, is set it up on my TV first, using the RCA sockets, set it up so it is all playing clear picture etc.. then I connect up to the VCR. NB: There are "Other" types of "Inputs & Outputs" among them ones called "Composite Video" "S-VHS" "SCART" ALL of these have standard interconnect leads, so if on your machine you DO NOT have the RCA Sockets.. but have one of those "Other" simply procure a Male to Male Cable of that type & then simply substitute the alternate "Cable" for the "RCA" & the rest is the same.

Taping shows on a jvc vcr.

Well from memory... you have to Plug in the Antenna to the Video, then from Video to TV, then ya Tune in the "Tuner" section of the Unit.. that outputs on ya TV, then you can simply press the record button(s).. also there is the option of Timer Recording... There was also a TV/VCR switch that had to be toggled on some models... But ya really need a manual I believe the manual is at the below link... www.sharefx.com/archive2.asp?offset=174400
