    Hello there,

    I have an old Nicam Matsui Model VP 9700 VHS - without the remote. The VHS works, however, I am having issues connecting it with my Freeview TV. Using a SCART connector I have managed to get the sound working, but I cannot get any visual.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    If by "SCART connector" you mean a standard scart to scart lead symptoms like that are usually caused by the scart plug not being pushed fully home at either end.
    Other than that, what brand/model no of Tv and type of scart connector?

    I am far from technologically savvy.
    Basically I have a LG 19LE3300, with a AV1 (RGB) which I insert a double ended SCART plug into and connect the other end into the VHS.
    On the LG there is a AV IN2 (yellow [video], white [L(mono)] and red [audio] inputs) and a component (green, blue, red [all video], white, red [both audio]).
    The VHS has a white and red input and a SCART input.

    Does that help?

    When you say you cannot "get any visual" do you mean while playing a tape?
    If so you may or may not have a blue screen displayed on the Tv, this is usually caused by dirty heads on the VCR. You can buy/try a tape head cleaner if you can source one. VCR's, tapes and accessories for them are thin on the ground these days. You can probably pick one up (a VCR) for peanuts in a charity shop, and as I stated make sure the scart plugs are fully inserted at both ends.
