Panasonic is a leading producer of electronic products, including a wide range of televisions. You can connect multiple audio/video devices to their televisions, including VCRs. Although video cassette tapes are quickly becoming obsolete, you probably have a large selection of VHS tapes sitting around your home in a box that you don't want to repurchase in DVD or blu-ray form.

RCA A/V connection

Plug the RCA A/V cables into the RCA "Video Out" ports along the back side of the VCR. Make sure the color of the cables match the same color as the ports you are inserting them into.

Connect the opposite end of the RCA A/V cables into one of the "Video In" ports on the Panasonic television.

Power on the Panasonic television and the VCR.

Press the "Input" button on the Panasonic television and choose "Video." This brings up the picture and audio of the VCR. If you are using an older Panasonic television you simply press "Video" to choose the RCA cable connection.

Coaxial Cable

Connect the coaxial cable (a single cable with a metal pin at the end of it) into the "Out" port on the back of the VCR. The cable screws onto the connection port, so make sure it is tight, otherwise you can lose audio or video signals.

Attach the other end of the coaxial cable into the "In" port on the back of the television.

Change the television to channel "3" and you can begin watching your VCR programming on the Panasonic TV.
