Question about Sony SLV-690HF VHS VCR

2 Answers

No Video and Audio when played a tape

When the player is played with a tape, there is no audio or video through TV. The connections are perfect. I clean the heads too. The problem still exists. I noticed that when I press menu from remote, I am able to get the audio from the tape but there is still no video. Also, when menu disappears after sometime audio also is going off. What will be the problem? I bought the VCR in US 8 years back. The authorised Sony centers in Chennai, India are not ready to service US VCRs. So, please tell me a solution so that I can resolve myself.

    Thanks for your immediate response.

    I checked whether sound system is not SAP. Yes! It is in Main mode. Other settings also are ON. My point is that sound is perfectly OK when Menu is displayed on TV. In normal play mode, there are no picture and sound. When I start playing a tape (I tried with many tapes including cleaning tape) ratser is displayed for few seconds and then TV displays "No signal".

Trying to connect my Aiwa VIDEOplus video player to tv to sort out old video tapes. Lost the manual re what goes where.


Video cassette players usually have three output leads: right audio (R), left audio (W), and video (Y). These connect to corresponding inputs on the rear of the TV. You will have to select the appropriate input source using the remote to be able to see what's playing.

Audio Problems playing VHS tapes with Denon AVR 1910


Did it EVER work as expected with VCR audio through the HDMI or are we working through that right now assuming it can?

I don't have a detailed manual, but the rear panel clearly shows some analog-only outputs (and NO digital ones) for the section called DVD/VCR. Internally, I'm sure there are proper analog-digital-converters for recording VHS to the native DVD-R, but VHS VCR's are NOT inherently digital audio devices so I'm pretty sure you need to run an analog RCA pair for the VHS video.

Hook it up just like any basic DVD player. Run the 3-headed RCA connector as follows to your receiver:

Tape 1 Play
Tape 2 Play
Video 1 Play
Video 2 Play < preferred

Yellow Video Out to: (you choose one unused)

Video 2 < preferred
or

Go video VR4940 VCR video recording has sound but no picture


You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.
