If your TV is an older model that has a scart socket, then you need to connect the VCR to TV with a scart cable, make a note of which scart socket you use and select the correct 'AV' input on the TV using the 'AV' button on the remote. Make sure the plugs are properly inserted at each end and (obviously) that the VCR is turned on.

Don't select any of the HDMI inputs, as those are for digital devices connected via HDMI cable.

Thank you so very much
All my own fault i had connected it all correctly with the scart lead but i kept insisting it should go to html2
I do not understand these things
I had deleted extr completely as it kept trying to go there funny lol
The reason it did not work there in the first place was it was at a blank place on the video
Silly me!
Thank you so very much for your answer i am grateful
