The tracking needs to be adjusted. Sometimes it's a knob on the VCR, and sometimes it's a control on the remote. Adjust it for the best picture, and the sound shoud be restored.
Good luck, and hope this helps..
if you get sound from anther recorder that tells me that the head on the current vcr is working, which leaves just the output, if using a antenna switch to channel 4 if using 3 (theres a little switch in the back) if you are using 4 change to 3, if your using audio output cables swap them with a good working pair. if all is good it would require service (unless the mute is pushed) good luck

the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
OK here we go,
The system is connected in the following manner:
Might I suggest a simple test?
from the VCR to the TV use the Video and Stereo RCA outputs. The reason I want you to do this is to see if the Audio signal is being processed by the VCRs circuitry. I think it is. If it is then you problem might be the modulator that is used from the VCR to the TV when the VCR is on. You see when the VCR is off the RF connections are basically a switched pass-thru, when the VCR is on the switch send the signal to the VCR circuitry and the back into a Modulator and into the audio and video output RCA jacks.
If the test works then the signal is being processed by the VCR and it might be a modulator problem, if not then the issue might be the actual RF input circuit prior to the demodulator.
Another test would be to play a tape to see if the tape plays. If it does then this narrows down the trouble area between demodulator and the audio and video detector stages.
If there is an internal proble you may want to take your unit to a radio and Tv repair shop.
Unit might be picking up 60 cycle hum or other electromagnetic field. Is VCR sitting on/under another piece of electronic equipment? If so, it could pick up such from the power supply circuitry of that other device. Try moving the VCR away from other equipment and see if the unwanted sound disappears.
The problem is the tape mechanism is malfuctioning. It trys eather to load or play a tape and a sensor inside tells the microprocessor to shut down this mechanism before damage is done to the tape. BUT sometimes a malfunction causes a damaged tape too. this unit has NO user serviseable parts inside itself, so its time to take this puppy into a repair shop to see if its worth the repair , Unless this units more then a few years old?? then its time to buy a shiny new unit. Good luck
