With that info it will be mostly guessing, if you can provide the connections you are using or trying to use that moght help, sort of like this:
Antenna ----> Digital Converter ----> TV
Do you need to hook the antenna in on your TV or does the TV have other inputs, like Video/Audio in (they would typically be RCA connectors, Yellow(Vid) and Red/White (Audio)
VCR RF (Channel 3/4) ----> TV?\
VCR RCA Composite Video(Yellow)/Stereo ----> TV
No matter which it is, the first thing to try is just the VCR, seeing as that is the one that is not working. Pull everything else off, and hook the VCR directly to the TV. If you are coming in on the Antenna input on the TV then you need to TV to be on Channel 3 or 4 usually.
If you can get a picture and sound then you know the VCR is working and it is the rest that is an issue.
If it is all on Coax (antenna wire), then you likely need something like this:
Antenna ---> Digital Converter (RF Out) ---> Ant In VCR RF Out----> Ant in TV on Channel 3 or 4.
In this case the VCR would also be on Channel 3/4 to record.
If you can give brand and model numbers of the TV, VCR, and Digital converters the manuals may be available on-line and I can take a look and tell you for sure how to hook them together.
If you know the types of connections that would do it also, so that is the type of in and out connections on the VCR. There are mostly likely only two types you will have, or both, that is RF that is one cable with a screw on end, or RCA which on the set side look like a small button with a hole in the middle and usually color coded Red, Black, White, and Yellow.
The conections of most interest are on the back of the TV and VCR.
As I said though, if you want to give it a quick test try your VCR to the TV and no other stuff hooked and make sure your TV is on Channel 3 or 4. (On the back of the VCP it should have a switch for lecting ch 3 or 4 to output on.
Before TV and everything else goes over balcony...lol!
I don't have cable and have a ton of tapes that grandkids love to watch.
After about 100 attempts and no luck...trying every combination possible I still can not get picture. I have sound.
I have to connect the TV, the Digital Converter box, the indoor antenna and the VCR. I have switched these cable back and forth more times than I can count.
Any help would be appreciated very much. Hopefully this is the correct forum. Thanks.
