That might be the TV output channel. I found these instructions in a Sanyo manual:
How to set the DVD+VCR's RF output channel 1. Set the TV to the VCR channel (3 or 4) depending upon the selected channel. 2. When the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel for more than five seconds. It will turn itself on and "RF03" or "RF04" appears in the dis-play window. 3. Press CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel or CH/TRK(v/V) on the remote control to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or CH 04). 4. Turn off the DVD+VCR.


It might solve the problem!

SOURCE: vcr does not respond to tv/vcr button on remote

You will not know from looking at the VCR if it is in VCR mode or TV mode. This is more likely a TV issue of whether the TV is monitoring the VCR or not. Make sure you have the TV selected so that it is monitoring the VCR.
That VCR/TV button has caused more confusion for the average person than anything else.
Hope Ya Fix It!

SOURCE: JVC HR-D337MS Multisystem VCR - NO SIGNAL

Connect RF out of VCR to Antenna IN of TV. There should be a Test Signal switch at rear of VCR. Push it to ON. JVC VCRs generally generate a RF signal in the UHF band, around channel 36. Scan all channels on your TV, you should gete a Test signal of 2 parrallel black bars around channel 36. That is the Channel on which you can view tapes. Switch off 'Test signal' at rear of VCR, and press play. you should be able to watch your tape.

I founnd my answer again:
Try pressing down the vcr or Aux button for a long time. Then try pressing down power button on remote for a long time. Try info or display button for long time. After I fiddled around with these for a long time it worked.

SOURCE: VCR Lock activated-Can I turn it off?

Turn the VCR on and remove any tape. Press the record button and the VHS/TV button simultaneously. You should see a message saying the VCR is unlocked. It worked for me.

I have an older but operable Sanyo VWM-700 4 head hi-fi VCR to connect to an older but operable 13" TV just to watch workout video cassettes(via cable, no cable box necessary).How are the connections made...


You connect the Antenna to the VCR, you connect the AV OUT from VCR to AV IN on TV.(Yellow, Red & White) (Doesn't matter as long as color to color) Then you TUNE the VCR to the channels and the TV simply acts as a monitor. You must tune the TV to the OUTPUT from the VCR. If ya play a tape and look for the signal on the TV, to "Tune it in" to the VCR. first. then go to tuner.

Plays on wrong channel


ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .

While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.

The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on
the front panel display

Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output
channel (CH 03 or CH 04).

Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on

Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF
output channel you selected.
Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3
or CH4 of your TV

PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.

Thanks for using Fix Ya .

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.
