I having recording programs for a long time and never had this problem. After recording a movie last night on a new VHS tape, I have a picture and no sound. Doesn't matter if I adjust the volume on the TV. I partially recorded over another used tape (with sound recorded) to see if it was just a bad tape cassette. Nope. I read through the instruction guide, and the only two solutions given are either check if the tv is in line mode (not) or adjust the volume. What shall I do?

Re: No sound on tape
many faults for that
1- have you tried to play an old tape with sound to check that the video plays sound ?? if you have the sound of a previous tape then move to
2- from where you are recording if you are recording from tv rf channels then move to 3 or if you are recording from dve chek the audio connection that are coming from dvd to video and change it
3- the remaining last fault is you have a dirty audio head needs cleaning and if you don't know how to do so go to qualified person and if you are familiour with that open case and clean and if no refer to 5
5- the audio head it is a chrome cube with a black two thins lines in the right of the mechanism near the pinch roller rounded thing that draws the tape to move
get a clean cloth and spread alchohol on it and rub the rectangle cube audio head up and down ovewr the two thin black things inside it

Recorded from tv shows to DVD Disc have to hookup AV RCA component cables to both to Tv and DVD recordable player model connections together.Yes,u will able to recordable VHS tapes to DVD Discs.But ur DVD player model u have it is must be a recorderable DVD player model?Not just a DVD Discs and VHS tapes player only model.Check ur owner manual all are in there.
Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. Usually that tracking function is used as follows. While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.
If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.
If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.
The TV is usually set to Channel 3 or Channel 4. You may have a switch on the back of the VHS recorder near which is marked Ch3 Ch4.
Once you correct this, try the following procedure.

Are you asking how to get the tape back? Partial disassembly of the case (UNPLUGGED) would allow removal of the tape.
If you are asking how to repair a VCR, no one can tell you how to do that on a forum. VCRs have quite a number of moving parts, mostly driven by rubber belts. These stretch with time and the mechanisms quit working. Since a simple belt replacement costs as much as a cheap DVD player most people change to DVD at this point.
If you have high-personal-value videotapes (home movies) , these can be converted to DVDs by any local photo service and would last a long time in the new format. They will NOT copy commecial videotapes for you.
I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.
When you are recording, do you hear the vhs tape(motor) moving? Is the tv\vcr combo connected to the same power(electrical) plug with ANYTHING else ? On the SAME wall outlet with anything that generates noise?. Do you have ANYTHING ( electric clock ) WITH a motor connected to the same line\wall\outlet\power adapter?
2nd) Any loose ground [wires that go to any menal part inside TV\VCR will cause problems. Be very carful inside electronics parts and when they are alive [pluged in & turned on], Some times loose VHS rubber bands cause problems by slipping and jerking the tape recording.
not much of a help but sounds like your record head is bad on the vhs heads,
use cleaning tape try that, if that fixes great, if it helps but not fully there, you might have to clean them by hand with very soft paper town and rubbing alcohol rub side to side very easy , if none of the above work you have a bad record head or record board, not worth repair vs cost
THERE IS A SENSOR SWITCH THAT TELLS THE MACHINE THE TAPE IS LOADED ... SOUNDS LIKE IT IS STUCK.
PROBLEM IS ACCESS WITH COMBO'S. THEY ARE A PAIN TO GET AT. THE WHOLE BACK COVER TO THE TV MOST OF THE TIME HAS TO BE REMOVED,...
I KNOW ITS NOT MUCH HELP BUT THE MANUFACTURES KNOW THAT... HOPE YOU CAN GET TO THE TRAY INSIDE.
