[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DMR-ES35V - DVD recorder / VCR combo. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]As you can see, I have a DMR ES40V, not a ES35V, it was the closest product number I could find.
I am at ground ZERO. I can’t even get a picture to show on my TV from a video playing in the VCR portion of the unit. I’ve been connecting devices up for years, and this one has me totally stumped.
I have connect per instructions: I am NOT worried about connecting to cable, all I want to do is some dubbing, which only requires a TV and the DMR unit.
I have connected the TV and DRM via RCA plugs with the video/audio male plugs going into the RCA female jacks for OUT on the back side of the DMR and into the TV female RCA jacks. The TV has a blue screen and I’ve tried setting it at VIDEO, Ch 3 and CH4. I can not see the picture from video, which seems to be playing in the DRM, to show on the TV. I also tried using the coaxial cable connection between the DRM out to the TV IN, but nothing.
I know the TV works, I use it all the time. The DRM belongs to a friend and I’m trying to help her dub from her videos to DVDs. Ha, I can’t even get the simplest step to work. No copyrighted material here!
There is a VCR/TV button on the remote, but it is apparently for use when one codes in the TV in order to use the remote for TV/DRM, as the buttons do not work at this point.
The DRM’s display lights up, shows the video playing etc. This is not rocket science, where am I messing up, PLEASE? When I tried to play a DVD, all I got from three different DVDs, is error:sad:
