Re: 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

My four year old was messing witht he bottons on the front of my Apex AT2702 television set, and not all it shows is a blue screen with a key symbol in the bottom left hand corner.

There are 7 buttons with its front panel including power ON/OFF switch button.They are; From left to right:- Video, Menu, Volume(-ve), Volume(+ve), Channel(-ve) and Channel(+ve). If these buttons are not there, it will be difficult to operate this set without a remote control. If you haven't the remote contro with you now, buy one universal remote control. The universal remote control suited for this set is COMCAST ON DEMAND CUSTOM-3 UNIVERSAL REMOTE control. The setup codes are:-
0748, 0765, 0767

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
