Easy Vhs To Dvd Problems

Question

I hope someone on here can help me.

 

I have Easy VHS to DVD build no: 201B23A ENU

 

I have a Toshiba laptop with Vista.

 

I cannot get any video picture or audio up in my preview screen. I only have "No Video Signal".

 

I have connected the audio cable and s-video cables to my VHS player and computer, but nothing.

 

Can anyone help me shed some light?

 

Thanks,

 

Stacy

Look and see if the drivers are installed correctly in Device manager with the USB Device plugged in.

 

Try a composite video instead of S-Video it's the yellow one.

 

Have you tried all USB ports on the Toshiba laptop and are they all enabled?

Thank you both. I will try and check in device manager today and see if that's any use.

 

I had used a composite cable before but that didn't work.

 

Jim, what do you mean by scart issues?

Are you capturing with a SCART adapter?

I'm sorry, I might be being stupid here, but I'm not sure what you mean by capturing with a Scart adaptor?

I also don't appreciate the rolling eyes comment. I am someone who is simply asking for help. I am not a computer wizz, so came here to seek help.

No scart adaptor. Just connecting an audio cable and s-video cable.

Compare it to the pic in post #2, two drivers needed, when The USB Device is plugged in.

I have since tried checking the drivers, which acording to the picture you supplied on here, is right - they are both installed.

 

I have tried again, and now have a blue DVD image appearing on the preview screen instead of "No Video Signal", but there is still no video image or audio when I try and play the video on my player? Any ideas on this?

Try a different S Video cable or component 'white red audio' 'yellow video' and try a DVD player as the source. See if we can get a signal?

What is the Make and Model # of your VCR?.

It is a Hitachi DVD/VCR Combo. Model No: DV-PF4E(UK)

 

 

You can't use the S-video jack for VCR mode (page 8 in Manual), its only DVD mode, that why you were getting the blue screen you mentioned earlier.

You will have to use the Scart output (AV 2) (page 12)

Here is one example http://www.amazon.co...O/dp/B0017M16WG

Ok, that has me stumped then :( Can you perhaps shed any light on what I need to use in that case - should I be using a scart adaptor instead?

You can use either one of the 2 suggested in post 17 or you can get a scart adaptor http://www.amazon.com/Lindy-35570-SCART-Adaptor-Switch/dp/B00008A956 then use the cable that you have, its up to you.

 

You would connect AV2 scart jack on the VCR, then plug the other end into your Roxio unit.

Thanks very much. Hopefully now I can finally get it sorted!

 

I was in Skipton last October, could have dropped in to help you.

 

Visiting relatives in Crossflats....her 50th birthday.

Well I got the scart adaptor today, and have just tried it again, but I am back to getting "No Video Signal". I have checked that the drivers are installed properly, and have connected the cable to the scart adaptor that I need. But still nothing. I am completely stumped - any ideas?

Just to double check....you have got the scart plugged into the AV2 jack (see diagram in post 17) and the other end (the Yellow/Red/White) into the Roxio device.If not, how do you have it connected.

Yes, I have the adaptor plugged into the AV2 (Decoder) socket on the back of the video player, and then connected to the roxio device. There is an "in" and "out" switch on the scart adaptor, and I have tried it on both settings.

Your in the AV2 jack for sure (the top one on the back).

 

The switch should be in the Out position.

 

Just to review ....you have a tape in the player, press play, select VCR mode (the VCR green light should come on).... you should get a picture on your computer screen, and if your TV is hooked up to the VCR it should be there.It should also work if you put a DVD in,(instead of a VHS tape), just select DVD mode.
