And fall back to composite. Remember I take your word about component vs. composite.
As the signal is NTSC analog you can run into tracking errors that worsen over time plus some TVs are less forgiving (like this Samsung.)
I have Panasonic DMRES30VEB DVD Recorder & VHS combination, it is connected to my Samsung Series 5 UE32J5500AKXXU Smart TV with a component cable.
When I play a DVD disc everything works correctly, however if I try to play a VHS cassette nothing happens, I have tested the DVD Recorder & VHS with another TV and both the DVD & VHS work correctly.
Why is VHS is not working with the Samsung TV and how do Icorrect the problem.
Thank you in advance.
