Memorex television is not working with my new Phillips DVD/VCR combo
I just bought a new Phillips DVD/VCR combo and it is not working with my Memorex television. I hooked it up exactly like the book says and it is not working. I did lose the Memorex remote a long time ago and I am just wondering if that is the problem. Do I need to buy a new remote for the two to work together? If I do, what remote would you recommend? My tv is about 7 years old but in great condition.

Re: Memorex television is not working with my new...
Depending on how you hooked it up; if thru coax cable the you have to use channel 3 or 4 on the tv to use Philips. If you are connecting with video and audio cables then you have to select a/v input on tv to use.

The channel is almost always 3 or 4. Be sure you have the VCR connections correct. Just hook up the TV and VCR alone to start with and try both the VCR and DVD. Also the output of the VCR should show a blue screen.
5YRS OF USE?I WOULD HAVE TO SAY IT HAS PROBALY BOUGHT THE FARM(OR IS ABOUT TO)USE THE UNIT FOR ITS VCR FUNCTION,& BUY ANOTHER DVD PLAYER.YOU CAN GET A GOOD 1 FOR AROUND 40$ WAL MART HAS A NICE SELECTION.I JUST BOUGHT A PHILLIPS FOR 34$ AND IT WORKS GREAT.ANOTHER OPTION WOULD BE TO TRY A DVD LENS CLEANER & SEE IF THIS HELPS.EITHER WAY IT WOULD COST YOU MORE THAN THE UNIT IS WORTH TO HAVE IT REPAIRED.HOPE THIS HELPS
You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.
Hey I have the same situation Go to MR REMOTE.com and give them your tv model usually will have a new manufacture remote under $30.00 ( just add Batteries and it works)no codes to enter!)
I think the Memorex is lacking on the universal codes Especially for the DVD/TV/VCR combos
