Question about RCA VR634HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

Settings Not Sticking - Always Downloading

Hi there. I have a VR634HF that I got from a relative who said they were having problems with it. I have found that it seems to be fully functional so far but it has the following symptoms: I ran through the initial setup the first time I turned it on and entered my Postal Code and setup the time zone and DST settings and all the other stuff. After the initial DOWN LOAD of information the next time I turned it on, it said it found 7 possible channel lineups for my postal code and asked me to pick which one it was. Then it asked me to turn off the VCR so it could download more info. I thought this seemed reasonable and I've left it overnight doing the download thing but now EVERY time I turn the VCR on it makes me pick from one of the 7 channel lineup choices and requests that I turn it off. Why is it doing this and can I fix it somehow?

This may indicate a problem with the persistant memory of the chip that holds the settings information. This might be caused by a capacitor that is not holding proper voltage during the setup phase or some defect in the memory itself. I would suggest getting a schematic of the device and using a multimeter check the pinout voltage levels of the section that sets and stores the settings, and the associated memory. If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest that you take the unit to a qualified TV repair shop in your area. Thank you, Shuttle83

Having problems with changing ring tone do i have to download ring tones i just carnt find anything

Almost every phone should be able to change ringtone without downloading them from the internet.
I haven't come across a phone that specifically has to.
Changing your ringtone varys between phones, as they have different operating systems.
However, usually you can change it from the "Settings" menu.
In the settings menu, the ringtone options can usually be found with a name that is related to sound, for example "Audio settings", "Sound and Display". It might also be under "notifications" or something relative.

It is really quite hard to qive step-by-step instructions without knowing what phone you have.

I have RCA VR 646HF. My remote fell between sofa

I could not find the Users Manual for the VR636HF, but I did stumble across the Users Manual for the VR634HF. Find it here:


Page 49 talks about the Pro-Tec Plus Locking "Feature" whereby holding the VCR button for six seconds will lock and unlock the "SAFE" mode.

Page 38 & 39 are instructions and programming codes for the VR634HF remote. Maybe they will work with your VR636HF to get the TV control working again.

I've already downloading the latest yahoo messenger but i can't install it... i try to install again and again but it still messing me...the result is "YM is unable to download files needed for...

hi, it may be due to low bandwidth problems yahoo just gives u a small installation file, and tries to install the rest of the messenger program by downloading them when required, after all the files are downloaded, ur installation is completed. if ur net gets disconnected, or yahoo server lags(very rare case, but happens), then u lose all that u have downloaded..simple way is always try to download from filehippo.com, when it comes to yahoo messenger, as that site provides a full fledged messenger, without the need for downloading before installing..

Internet settings, picture messaging

You can download settings from here...


just fill in required info from drop down boxes and S/E will send settings to your handset like a text message. It should prompt you to save/install, and then may ask to set as default? Select YES. Finished.
These settings will set up mobile internet which is used to download/upload the pictures, and MMS settings that enables your phone to handle the message for your network.
If you still have problems after doing this you may need to speak to your network provider as they may need to change some settings that you cannot see?
Hope that helps?

Netgear DG834PN: websites won't load

It's possible that this relates to your MTU settings. A clue to this is if you cannot access secure sites, or sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Google News, MSN, Hotmail.
If this does sound like your problem, try downloading the TCP Optimizer from Speedguide.net. This gives you an interface to examine and change your MTU settings (choose 'custom settings').
You might want to experiment by reducing your MTU, either in stages, or straight down to (say)1450.
For a full explanation of why you would do this, and how, check this page at the Netgear knowledgebase.

This may solve your problem, if MTU settings are the cause. However, if you choose to go ahead, please check out the warnings on the knowledgebase beforehand.

You are an expert user, so you will have set a rollback/system restore point in case the program or settings do not work for you.... :)
