Question about Quasar VHQ400 VHS VCR

1 Answer

NO picture showing on screen even though the VCR is running and hooked up properly

I have DISH TV and a Quazar VCR is hooked up to it-is there a specific "settting" I must change on the tv menu itself...When I put the VHS tape in I can rewind, fforward etc so I know its working but when I hit play on the VCR although I can hear it is running I get no pic on the screen--Help!

    I will go take a look and see if the yellow cable is direct into the tv is that what you are saying...thanks I will try it

  • mrichardson Feb 03, 2008

    Okay, I went and checked and there were three plugs to go into the back...yellow, red, and white/gray...I put them into the back of the VCR in the same order as they were previusly plugged into the dvd unit I had sitting on top of it....I now have the "sound" to the movie I put ini, but still a blank/black screen...otherwise the sound is clear so at least I know it is now hooked into the Dish TV...can you give me more tips now on what to check or if all three of these are needed as they were in the dvd player??? I wrote on that problem too, but at this point prefer to get receptin on the VCR....they are from left to right yellow, red on top row and then white/gray is below it...thanks for any expertise you can offer./

I have Dish network. I want to record TV onto the VCR, but cannot get channels to record. i can playback videotapes and the record works, but cannot figure out how to get the signal to record.


The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR.
The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV.
The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.

It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input.
& VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.

The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

I can play DVD's but not VHS tapes. I hav checked all connections and several tapes to no avail. Thank you ! Ol' Fred


Hey Ol' Fred...
One of my good friends is an ol Fred so I felt compelled to stop in and help!
I'm not sure of your setup, but if you've got a combo DVD/VHS unit, make sure that you have out puts to the TV for Both parts separately... You can designate by accessing the TV's onscreen menu and setting up a separate source for DVD and one for VHS. I've found on my projection TV that it's best to use the Coax cable connections for the VHS to TV.
Then once it's setup with separate hookups to the Tv, you should have audio and video for VHS...

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc


hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.
