Our tv/vcr combo has problems.
The unit DOES have sound when we operate the built-in VCR and/or operate a connected (thru the video/ audio input jacks on the front of the unit) DVD player.
BUT, when we operate the cable television stations, there is absolutely NO sound.
I have unplugged the unit and reset everything. I have checked the cable connection. I have checked the mute button and the volume itself.
No one at Sears or Sylvania has been helpful in troubleshooting this problem.
I do NOT want to send the combo unit to the repair shop, as the repairs will most likely cost as much as the unit did when it was brand new. If I can't fix the unit myself, I will probably just buy a new one!
Can anyone help me or steer me in the right direction?
I fixed the problem by throwing the TV in the garbage, and buying a new one.
(I received no answers from "Fix Ya" members as to instruct me how to attempt to fix the problem, so I solved it the only way I knew how!)

You haven't specified whether it is a TV/DVD combo or TV/VCR combo.
Four digit universal remote codes for Emerson TV/VCR combo are:
0227 0233 0254 0264
0265 0266 0310 0325 [0039 0252]
[0147 0250] [0147 0257]
For TV/DVD combo is: 0456
Where the code is listed as [### ###] the first is for the TV and the second is for the VCR. Otherwise just the one code operates both the TV and the VCR
For Combo Devices, in many cases a single code operates both parts of the device (e.g. the TV and the VCR). In other cases you need to set up two codes. For example, one for the TV and one for the VCR. Where codes are shown below as [### ###] the first code operates the first part of the device's name, and the second code operates the second part. E.G., for a TV/VCR device, the first code operates the TV and the second code operates the VCR
the very first thing to do is clean the vcr heads you never said weither the veiw was fuzzy from tv recep or video if its from vcr have the heads cleaned you can buy a head cleaner for about $5.00 if its main steram tv then you need to have the units curcuits tested and the faulty parts replaced
remote codes are set by the manufacurer of the remote not the tv. if there are any others not listed in instructions for remote, the manufacturer of remote would have them. most combo unit are not able to be programmed into universal remotes due to the fact that there are alot of specialized function buttons on original remote. you can obtain a replacement remote thru toshiba
Viewing the user manual above, the only inputs are on the front of the unit. (1) video - yellow
and (1) Audio - White
You can watch the DVD, but it will only have MONO sound.
Connect component RCA cable RED YELLOW WHITE (minus red in your case) to the front of the unit.
To view from that source, Change the channel to 2 then hit the down arrow one more time to get in AUX mode.
I had the same problem programming my directv remote to recognize the ssc719c. What finally worked was programming AV1 (not 'TV') with the sylvania DVD code 20821. This allowed me to turn the tv on and off and change tv channels, but wouldn't allow me to mute or change the volume. To fix this, (at least in my case) you have to program your remote to recognize the volume and mute buttons in the AV1 slide setting. I assume other (non directv) remotes similarly disable the volume and mute buttons when the remote is not in satellite or tv mode. Anyway, here are the instructions that activated the volume & mute buttons on my remote: "Depending on how you set up your remote, the VOL and MUTE may control the volume only on your TV, regardless of the position of the MODE switch. This remote can be set up so that the VOL and MUTE keys work only with the component selected by the MODE switch. To enable this feature, perform the following steps: 1. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice, then release both keys. 2. Using the number keys, enter 9-9-3. (The green light will flash twice after the 3.) 3. Press and release the VOL+ key. (The green light flashes 4 times.) Now the VOL and MUTE keys will work only for the component selected by the MODE switch position."
To sum up: if you find a code for your remote that will turn your tv on and off, but doesn't seem to do much of anything else, it's probably the right code; your remote is probably set up not to recognize volume or mute inputs in AV1 or AV2. You change that using a remote-specific code that's probably found somewhere on the remote maker's website.
I had this problem with my TV/VCR combo unit (Samsung CXC1972) after losing the remote while in the dorms. I tried a few different universal remotes and dozens of codes before I tried the Philips 3 device universal remote as pictured below with code 037 programmed into the VCR/DVD button. I can't change the volume with this code but the input key switches between line in and tv. You can also change the channel, access the menu and operate the VCR functions with the code. I bought the remote for less than $10 at Walmart so it might be worth a try, and if it doesn't work you can always bring it back. Hope this helps.
