Hello L46k,

The fact that you sound is working when you use the VCR tells me that the Audio circuitry is working. So lets move back to the last point that the IF signal is present before demodulation into audio. If you have a tone injector set the IF point and the use the injector to see if you hear the tone out of the speakers, or I can ask you a question that begs to be asked here?
That question is did you check your SAP settings, this can cause the problems you are seeing. Do this go to your on-screen menu and in the audio section choose English and turn off SAP.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

    Hello L46k,

    I writing this not in disappointment with the rating, but to inform you about your problem. You have a VCR/TV combo unit, which is actually a misnomer because there is no such thing as a TV/VCR combo. In reality what you have is a VCR with a High Voltage section, a deflection section, and a section to take the composite video and matrix it into three signals which are R B (chroma) and Y(luminance) (Green is derived from the algebraic addition of the RB and Y signals). Now that being said, the audio out from the VCR and the audio out from the TV are from the same circuit (literally). So you troubles between with the audio playing in VCR mode vs TV mode can only be a function of the configuration since the VCR in tape mode does not use SAP, while the TV mode more then likely would use SAP. That is why I asked you to check your SAP settings, in fact check all of your audio settings since the VCR section is acting as your tuner, your Quadrature detector (where audio and video are separated), and your Video and audio output prior to the color matrix and audio amplifier. The audio however comes from the VCR/TV audio section (in both modes) So the only differing factor is the configuration of the audio output. Again I ask you to check your audio settings.

    Thank you,

Hi, Based on your post/description, it would appear that the TV tuner of the RCA is at fault. Chances are the the VHF Low is not working right but the VHF High is. This is an inshop repair probably requiring component replacement. You may want to confirm by checking your TV's setup in the menu, you should have Cable selected instead of Air or STd and do a Memory + (scan and add channels). If still a no go, then back to the tuner suspect. The VCR will not display any movie since it normally transmits in Channel 3 (which is VHF Low). If there are no other problem with the VCR then you might still be able to use it by connection it to the A/V inputs of the TV. If the VCR works in A/V mode, then perhaps you may want to save the repair expense of the RCA TV and use the tuner of the VCR to watch TV and switch channels. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Want play from antenna


May just not be good enough antenna to receive the signal--try to with the remote direct enter a channel you expect to see and if it works you can in the menu add that to the memory---manually enter and add each possible channel.

The bit error level is 10 on the Ch7 stations but ok on all other stations and the signal strength is around 50 Any idea how to fix. Plugged in a different smaller TV into the same coax cable connection...


Plugging in a different tv does not really prove much, tuners vary slightly in the way they handle signals It may just be that your aerial needs a very slight adjustment or has degraded slightly.
Can you plug the coax into another device (vcr?) and out of that into the tv and see what happens?
vote appreciated

The sound won't work on my tv unless it is a dvd or vcr tape is playing or my video game system is playing. other than that I get no sound out of the tv at all


If you are using a cable box to recieve tv channels make sure that the sound is not muted on the box, usually you get a small icon indicating that the sound is muted. The other cause of the audio loss could be a problem in the sound processing circuit(IF circuit) you will need to take the set in for an estimation in that case, some troubleshooting will be required. If you are using a cable box one thing you can do is to run some dubbing cables from the a/v jacks in the located in the rear and connect them to one of the tv ext. inputs(like you are connecting your dvd,vcr) this should give you audio when viewing your tv channels. please leave good feedback if i answered your question satisfactorily.thanks

Vcr will not record sound any more.


Try with another cable, the cable may either be loose or damaged. If that doesn't work it is a problem with the VCR itsself

Hooked up converter box and stations are all working but sound is coming out a hissing.


Use the volume control on the remote for the converter box to raise the sound level. Adjust the TV volume with the converter box turned all the way up then reduce to normal listening level with the converter box remote.

Trying to help this older lady with a emerson tv/vcr combo. She has no manual with set. Setting up to record same station everyday at same time. VCR will record but when playing back she only gets sound no...


The TV should be on channel 2, 3, or 4 to work correctly. There might be a small switch on the back of the VCR that lets you select the channel that it wil play back on.

Also, look on the remote control for the VCR and see if there is a button labeled TV/Video, and press that while something is playing. This switches back and forth between the TV signal and the VCR signal and it could solve your problem.
