Question about Televison & Video
Hi! I have a Quasar VCR Model VHQ440. When I record a program it will record the video but not the audio of the program. However if I play a tape that was recorded in my other VCR, the sound works.
I did run the head cleaner through the VCR thinking it might just need to be cleaned, but that didn't do anything.
Some VCR have the ability to record sound from another source. Check the sound settings and record settings to make certain it has not been switched to another sound setting.

If the heads are TOO dirty, a head cleaner will not help. If you are cinfident enough to open up the recorder, then they can be cleaned manually.
Disconnect the VCR from the mains.
Remove the screews from the side and back (if applicable) of the lid.
Remove the lid.
Look at the large drum (set at a slight angle) If you gently rotate the drum you will see 2 or 4 small sensors set into the drum.
Tear of a clean piece of A4 paper about 1inch square.
Hold between thumb and first finger and rub the centre of the paper against each sensor in turn. Make sure the edge of the paper does not catch the sensor.
After each sensor check the paper for dirt (black marks) and change paper if need be.
Try a recording / playback.
Repeat if necessary.

Simple. The Cassette's 'Prevent Erasure' tab is missing. Just cover with Scotch tape and reload. Now try recording.
