Sony VCR w/ no audio

I have a sony VCR that no longer processes audio.
I have tried using the VCR as a tuner, using both coax, and RCA outputs, and no audio is sent to the TV.
I have also tried playing a tape through both a coax, and RCA output, and no audio is sent to the TV.

You have not mentioned the model no. so I can only talk generally.
Most common reason for this would a fault in the vif module or audio processor IC.
Not a DIY fault.

Coax to RCA plugs

You need a tuner. For example, you might try a vcr. Most vcr's have a tuner built in, and have rca outputs. Tune the vcr to the channel of the converter box output.

How to set up vhs taping

Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

Having trouble hooking up vcr

I've never seen a VCR use anything other than Composite, S-video or RF analog outputs. That's because VHS uses the NTSC or PAL analog video standards. (In the US, it is NTSC; in Europe PAL is the old standard.)

To use the Composite output, get a triple RCA cable (red, white and yellow connectors). Connect one end of the cable to Video Out (yellow), Audio Out right (red) and Audio Out (white) on the VCR. The other end of the cable goes to the corresponding Composite Video In jack and the adjacent Audio In jacks on the TV. If you are using S-video, (both units must have S-video jacks), the S-video cable replaces the Composite section of the triple cable, so you only need an audio patch cable (two RCA plugs on each end). Be sure to use the audio input corresponding to the S-video input. Note: S-video is generally better quality than composite, although HD digital is still superior.

If you wish to record from the TV, the TV must have a composite video or S-video output. This is not very common. If you wish to record programs from an RF source (cable or antenna), see the next paragraph.

In the days before digital, a typical connection scheme was to run the cable or antenna RF source to the ANT IN coax connector on the VCR, then run a short coax cable from ANT OUT to ANT IN on the back of the TV. This may not work with a digital source. Pre-HD VCR tuners would not be HD compatible, and may even filter out the digital signal in bypass mode (VCR off). You would need an HD to analog converter box at the VCR input to retain this setup. I have no information on your TV's support for NTSC video through the tuner (especially since you did not mention the model : /).

Have Sony VCR model SLV-N80/N70 . Cannot get it to record using Samsung TV model SLV-N80,N70.

The television has nothing to do with recording. It is only required for playback. There are a number of possibilities depending on what equipment you have. Do you have cable, satellite, antenna? Your signal source has to be connected to the VCR either through the cable connector, or RCA video jacks.
If you have straight cable, connect the cable to the "ant in" connector on the VCR. The VCRs tuner will select the channel you want to record. If you are on antenna, you will need a Digital set top box (STB) to receive any channels.
If you have a satellite, cable box or digital STB, you must go from the output of the box to the input of the VCR. You can use the standard coax cable,but I would recommend using the audio/video cables for better quality. If using coax, the VCR will have to be set to either channel 3 or 4, depending on the boxes output setting. Using A/V jacks, the VCR will be set to "Line" or "Video" input.

Need an RCA Adapter for a TOSHIBA D-VR610KU

If the RF Modulator will convert a coaxial signal to an RCA output signal, fine however, you still need a tuner to select the channel on the TV you want to record. This unit is primarily for dubbing or copying DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD. There is no tuner in the unit to get the cable signal. Try hooking up an additional VCR, that probably has a tuner in it and use the RCA out of the 2nd unit to the RCA in of the Toshiba. Hook the coax to the input coax jack of the 2nd then RCA out to RCA in of the Toshiba. Choose what channell you want to record on the 2nd unit. You may have to choose Auxillary mode on the toshiba the press instant record on the Toshiba. Again, this unit is a Player or Dubber. Not designed to record TV shows without an external tuner. I hope this helps. If you use a 2nd VCR just to get the TV Signal, you won't need the modulator.

Coax Cable

You need a cable box if you have channels that are digital (mustly the channels above 74). If you do not have those higher channels you can use a vcr or a dved player that has a tuner in it. Put the cable into the vcr and then use the Video and Audio jacks (A/V jacks) and the back of the vcr that say "OUTPUT" and hook them up to the same type of jacks on the back of the tv that say "INPUT".

Convertor box and Sony Wega with PIP (2 Tuners) and new Digital DVR/VCR

I wonder if the RF interference from the digital tuner. That box will only allow ouput either through the coax or the AV ports. If you do both you will not get a picture.

If you switch them you have to tell the box what your using for output by going through the setup process.

Is the Zenith 901 converter box for your cable TV.

New TV hookup

You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
