Sonic/blue dvr4400

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.

Re: sonic/blue dvr4400

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

There is no sound on my Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player / VCR Combo. The only section that works great is the VCR, but the DVD player sound just went out for some reason. I've changed the RCA cables, and...

Hi, As long as you have the picture it means that DVD's Laser Eye is Ok.. Pls Check your connections to make sure the audio and video cables of both VCR and DVD are properly hooked up to the television. Color coded cables should be matched with the jacks of equal color. Yellow corresponds to video while red and white are both audio.

Ensure the DVD is in standby mode if you are not getting picture from the VCR. The DVD cannot be running at the same time as the VCR is playing when you want to see the VCR picture.

Connections with combo units are often inconvenient, forcing you to use separate video hookups for each section (DVD, VCR), a problem for older TVs. This player has it figured out: a single RF or composite-video connection to a television will display either the DVD or the VCR signal, depending on which format you're viewing. If you want to view DVDs in S-video or in component-video (either interlaced or progressive-scan), you will need to use two inputs. though: any component- or S-video-equipped TV will offer sufficient inputs for both of the SLV-D350P's formats.
It's a different arrangement for audio: you can listen through a single set of stereo analog-audio cables for each component or--if you want to enjoy DVDs in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound--you can send the DVD's audio to a compatible audio/video receiver and a multichannel speaker system through a digital-audio interconnect (either optical or coaxial,). The unit also comes with an RF cable that will transmit DVD/VHS audio and video to your TV.
In conclusion,for a best tech solution I prpose you to connect DVD audio directly to your Stereo and listen as separate audio source.while Video goes to TV as usual. Hope this helps! if you need more help pls contact me..Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)

Magnavox dv225mg9 dvd/vcr player. Hooked it up to TV/Cable receiver/combo and I get great dvd reception sound and picture, but on the vcr I get only sound

I had the same issue. You probably have your unit connected with the newer cables that are red, blue and green. These are more sophisticated and offer better quality for the DVD portion. However, they will not carry the video for the VCR, only the audio.
You need to connect a *yellow* Video Out cable from your DVD/VCR to the Video In on your TV, this should carry the video for the VCR! Hope this helps!

Mom was hitting buttons and now DVD plays Blue and White!

I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".

Hope this helps.
