Sounds like your audio connections between the DVD/VCR and TV are unplugged, loose, or damaged. Try substituting an audio cable that you know is working correctly. Also, make sure you have everything plugged in to the right ports (output on DVD, input on TV).

If none of that works, you might have a damaged port on your DVD or TV. To check the ports: remove the cable plugged into it, then lightly wiggle it in all directions (do NOT force it to move if it has ANY resistance). If the port moves at all it probably has broken solder points inside the device.

If there is a bad one on the TV you might be able to just plug everything into a different set of input ports, if you have some. If it's on the DVD, you're stuck with either replacing it or getting it repaired (unless you know how to solder, but I doubt that you would).

Tracking controls for VHS should have no effect on the DVD player. If a pre-recorded DVD is distorting the picture, along with the VHS, then there's either something wrong with the TV it's played on, or the connection, between the two. Or there is a fault in the electronics of the VHS/DVD combi that deals with the picture.

Do you just get a snowy screen when you playback? I think the first thing to try is to clean the video heads. Either try a head cleaning tape, but these are not always the best thing, better still is to remove the lid & carefully using a head cleaning fluid (isopropal alcohol) & a thin piece of card or head cleaning stick (NOT a cloth), carefully & gently wipe the heads which are on the round silver drum. Do not use too much pressure or you will damage the heads, give it time to dry (couple of minutes) & then try playback.

I have a vhs/hq ..i have visual but no audio for a program i recorded last thursday. I tried recording from tv now and still no sound but picture. I played other movies or previous recorded things in vhs...


Try first to ensure that the scart lead at the back of the set or any AV leads that you are using are secure and tight.

Sometimes if the scart lead is not pushed home correctly it will lose audio. Try then to record a sample of video and try playback.
If there is still no sound try another scart lead first.

It will be a process of elimination I'm afraid.

Vhs playback problem


either extremely dirty heads or there is a tv/vcr button that needs to be toggled. Most have auto tracking, old ones have a knob or 2 buttons under a panel somewhere for tracking.
