Question about Broksonic CTSGT8118T 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes

The TV works well. However, when I put in a tape, all I get is static on the screen. I can hear audio but there is no picture. I've made sure that there are no foreign objects inside. I've plugged up another VCR to the TV and it will play tapes fine however; I cannot record from the TV using the other VCR. I get nothing. If I record from the built-in VCR I only get audio again. Please help! This has been going on for a few months now and I do not know if I need to take it to get it fixed or if there is something I can do myself. Thanks!

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

TV has static but no picture. When I turn on the TV, I hear 2 clicks and static. Pushing the power button again, static stops and red LED light turns on. After 15 min. TV automatically shuts off.


Check your antenna is plugged in the right place.
Switch TV on then goto it's menu setting, if the menu appears then at least you know the screen works.
As a test, plug in a DVD player to one of the HDMI ports and try to play something. Make sure you select the proper input source from the source menu and see if you get a picture.
If you do then it narrows the problem down.
Next, from the menu, select TV source to see if picture comes.
There are a number of other sequences depending on what decoder or Viewer box you have, if it's just Freeview antenna then you may have a problem with that.
Make sure you've done the auto tune procedures too.....

Pip working but main screen not.. model pcl541r


If the main channel input is not giving you a picture, you need the tuner checked out or replaced. a good indicator is when you select a channel with the remote you will get just snow(sometimes followed by static in the audio)you do get the picture in picture thru the auxiliary inputs on the tv because they go directly into the audio and video drivers and bypass the RF circuitry. One way of making sure that the tuner is the problem is by hooking up the coaxial out of a vcr or dvd player to the main in or cable in of the tv and selecting channel 3 on the tv and then try a tape or a disc, if you get a picture then suspect something crossed in your installation between pip and main in of your tv set.please your feedback if i answered your question.thanks!

High audio static on all but one channel of my RCA TV


had this problem for a while only just found the cause, its either your tuner flipped out which means you just neded to retune the tv and it should be fixed if not that there was this setting i found still not sure what it is or means but you could select these letters i think there was S, BG and some other ones but i changed it to the top one which was BG and it fixed the static sound with the clear picture problem just stuff around with the channel settings and see if you have that setting hope that helped

Static but no pic , only audio


The tape you were watching was probably worn and left a little of its oxide surface on the VCR's heads. This is pretty common, especially if you ever play rented tapes or tapes that have been around for a while. Plays great, then the next time, no picture.

A head cleaning cassette may solve the problem for you. Make sure you get a wet-type cleaner. Radio Shack has one on their website, and you can probably find one locally. If the VCR hasn't recently (or ever) had a good professional cleaning, it might be time for one. The whole tape path (everything the tape touches, and not just the heads) need to be cleaned and a cleaner tape can't do that. Video rental shops used to offer cleanings. Maybe one in your area still does or there's a shop you can take it to. We charged $20 some years back when I worked at a shop. Today it might be cheaper to replace the VCR than to clean it.
