Re: Audio on recorded tape

You could try a wet type tape head cleaner but I doubt if that will help but it couldnt hurt. These combo units are built so tight together I wouldnt recomend that you try to open it. I would though look through the front door and look toward the right side and see if something got inserted into the machine and is blocking the audio head. If this dosent get you back audio then you have a curcuit problem and you are gonna need to take her in for an estimate Good Luck

No sound from pre-recorded dvds in tv/dvd combo

Check the sound setup to TV. Refer its user manual for details. Check whether the audio format to the recorded disc do match with to that of TVs.

Yes. SP is "Standard Play" and LP is "Long Play", while EP/SLP are short for Extended Play/Super Long Play respectively.

VHS Recording Tape

not much of a help but sounds like your record head is bad on the vhs heads,

use cleaning tape try that, if that fixes great, if it helps but not fully there, you might have to clean them by hand with very soft paper town and rubbing alcohol rub side to side very easy , if none of the above work you have a bad record head or record board, not worth repair vs cost
good luck

No sound on tape

hi , many faults for that 1- have you tried to play an old tape with sound to check that the video plays sound ?? if you have the sound of a previous tape then move to 2- from where you are recording if you are recording from tv rf channels then move to 3 or if you are recording from dve chek the audio connection that are coming from dvd to video and change it 3- the remaining last fault is you have a dirty audio head needs cleaning and if you don't know how to do so go to qualified person and if you are familiour with that open case and clean and if no refer to 5 5- the audio head it is a chrome cube with a black two thins lines in the right of the mechanism near the pinch roller rounded thing that draws the tape to move get a clean cloth and spread alchohol on it and rub the rectangle cube audio head up and down ovewr the two thin black things inside it please don't forget to do excelent rate cause i here to help you regards

Records......without sound

recording in a video tape requires 3 tracks. one is for video, the other is for the sound and the last one is for the control trrack. it means that sound recording is being done separately. there is an audio head inside the vcr that looks like an ordinary audiotape head, clean it with a cotton swab with a little alcohol on it. let it dry and try. if the problem persist, a problem in audio circuit during recording is the culprit, considering playing is normal. but if in both ways is the same, maybe the head itself is the problem

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes

All you can do by yourself unlesss you are a tech. Is run a head cleaner tape through it. It sound like a dirty head to me. Here is something a lot of people do not know, The video head and the audio head in a VCR are two separate heads. thats why you can loose picture and not sound. Best taken apart and cleaned manually with rubbing alchol but not advisable if you are not experienced due to high voltage and if cleaning improperly you can damage the unit worse. Good Luck
