Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo
No sound on vcr or when viewing the tv through the vcr unit. The dvd player
works fine with sound. I've hit any and every button that might have to do with the player. I unpluged the unit overnight thinking it might reset itself. I tried to call the numbers listed in the book and neither of them works any longer. Please help.
Same thing with mine, I think the tape head is bad. I tried adjusting the azimuth and still have no sound on VCR Mine also has an issue if I push on the yellow component RCA too hard it will short out with the sound RCA and I can hear the video noise through my left channel sound. If I pull it out just a tiny bit it will stop. But that's a problem due to something that smacked into the RCA Plug stack. Mine was like that when I got it (used). I resoldered the pins back onto the board since they were all broken loose. i thought that was the problem but now I think it was bad and someone got sick of messing with it and smashed or kicked it before they got rid of it.
I'm not going to mess with it anymore, I'm going to try another audio pickup head from a working machine and see if that's what the problem is. VCRs are a buck at thrift stores just pick one up for the head if its bad. look for a sony or similar brand I've seen some sony's that were identical to go video's guts, same boards and DVD players different outputs and front covers. They have 2 models that are supported by the same boards. they have a check mark on the go-video for model 4300 and sony uses the model 4400 I think but the only difference is the extra outputs on the sony. The chassis and covers were identical also. Just a different piece of plastic surrounding the output section to accommodate the extra connections. If you have no service skills then just sell it for the DVD player to someone who might be able to fix it. It will cost more than it's worth to fix
