We are trying to hook up a vcr to a philips magnavox tv. I believe I have it connected correctly but we cant figure out how to set the tv to play the vcr. the external option in teh menu for the vcr is selected but nothing is happening. Its only the vcr we are putting on this tv. We also have no remote for either tv or vcr.

The TV is a Philips Magnavox model number TS27 46 C101 and the VCR is a RCA Accu Search Model number VR637HF

Thank you for the welcome. I am really happy I found this site :D

You might be able to select the TV's video source by pressing the TV front panel's channel up/down buttons. You'll want to set the "channel" to LINE1 or LINE2 or something like that which is where the VCR is connected.

If that doesn't work or the TV doesn't have buttons you can push, then you'll need to find the remote for it.

I can't find manuals online for either the TV or the VCR, so if you have a paper copy, I suggest you read it.
