If there is a cable box hooked up to this vcr, the vcr needs to stay on channel 3 to record.the output of the vcr either hooks up to the tv from the coax out , or from one of the other possible outputs such as rca cables [red, white, yellow] to one of the tv's aux/video/line in or source inputs.

I can't get the VCR mode off the TV screen in order to watch TV.


try looking for either "source" button on the remote or ""input" choice. also you can try using the channel changing buttons, sometimes you can get out of vcr mode by just going up or down on the channel selector

I have a Toshiba TV/VCR/DVD combo, remote WC-FN2. I can turn the TV on,change volume but can not change channels. Help! Thanks,


Some tv remotes will do this if the TV is programmed to skip all but one channel (or the last scan for channels had only one active channel - like a tv connected to a set top box (3,4,60)).

See if you can navigate to other channels by typing in a channel number. Also check if the Tuner is the current source of the video signal by pressing the Source or Input button. If you have a menu button on the TV or the remote, try rescanning channels or editing the channel list.

I hope this helps.

Need to know what channel my TV needs to be on to watch DVD/VCR


The channel you use depends on how you have the vcr/dvd player wired to it. If you used a co-axial wire, then your tv should be on channel 3. If you used RCA wires, then you will have a button, either on the front of the tv, on the remote, or both that says "input" or "source". Pressing this will change the TV to the rca connectors. Try this and let me know if it helps :)

How to change vcr input from channel 4 to channel 3


On the Zenith, turn the power off. Hold down the Channel up or down button on the machine itself (not the remote) for 5 seconds, it will say RF03 hold down until it says RF04.

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!

Daewoo DVN-14F6N


Same problem...Went to Goodwill Store, they usually have a large basket of remotes. I found a Daewoo remote for a TV only, HOWEVER on the bottom it has a AIR/CABLE button. The remote doesn't say Daewoo on it only..."Remote Controller R-25B03". The rest of the button of course work with the TV portion of the DVN-14F6N.

Connecting VCR/DVD combo to TV


If that is the only input that the tv has it's still usable. Just plug the Cable TV or antenna cable into the DVD/VCR coaxial input labeled "in" (instead of the TV's) and hook one from the DVD/VCR's "out" to the "in" on the tv. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (depends on DVD/VCR settings) and use the built in TV tuner on the DVD/VCR to change channels.
