Can's play VCR, get "no signal" on screen Just suddenly, my VCR player of my GoVideo DVR4000 player does not play. I get "no signal" on the screen. I've checked all the wires in the back and they are still in the same place they were 3 years ago, no changes have been made. And yet, my DVD part of the player plays my DVDs O.K. This is strange? Can one part of the combo malfunction while the other plays? I appreciate if anyone can help me with this problem. I am not particularly tecnical-minded, but I do know a few things. Please email me if you think you can help. Thanks, Rhima

To answer your question I need to know and certify that the following steps are followed
1.connection if your dvd is playing and your vcr is not
Therefore your focus is the connection
2.use the rca or svideo output to the tv for the vcr
3 the connection wires the wires even though look good will break in replacement may be necessary
4.the signal of the vcr tape does the tape spin does it have anything on it
DO NOT ASSUME ANYTHING IF NOT TESTED ON ANOTHER T.V. OR VCR YOU WILL WASTE YOUR TIME
