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.

Re: Sony VCR w/ no audio

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.

How do I connect my Sansui 6010B VCR with an analog TV and a DTV tuner?

two ways of connecting VCR with Analog TV with DTV tuner.
DTV tuner (RF) output to VCR (RF) input,VCR (RF) output to analog TV (RF) input.
turn DTV tuner on (VCR should have a TV\VCR switch that makes signal coming from tuner BYPASS VHS right into TV) note:: change channel FROM tuner.You should be able to record by placing a blank tape and pressing RECORD.
2ND. DTV tuner, VCR, should have a RCA in\out connections...Audio & video.You need a RF\RCA bypass switch. It has a INput with RCA connections to a RF signal out that goes to the RF Input of analog TV

I want to connect our VCR to the new Sharp HDTV,but I do not find audio,video out on the tv.How do I link the two?

Some HDTVs can output analog video and audio but if you say your HDTV does not, then you would have to use some other tuner/box/decoder/converter such as a cable box if you have cable TV service or a DTV converter box for over-the-air TV or a satellite box. The VCR would connect to the tuner/converter box and record analog video and audio using the RCA yellow video and white audio jacks. Standard VCRs cannot record high-def video except as down-converted analog video.

The VCR would then connect to the HDTVs inputs (yellow, white) for playback.

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.

How do I connect a VCR to a Sony Bravia TV?

Usually video and audio outputs from VCR comes in composite (yellow RCA female connector) or S-Video outputs for video and L and R (white and red female RCA connectors) for stereo ouputs or black RCA female connector for mono output, you must look for the matching analog inputs at your TV set, the RF output can be used too, you only must tune the TV at the channel used by VCR.

How do I hook up a daewood vcr to a TV through a Direct TV

If you are trying to connect a VCR to your television and still have Directv, this is the way to do it. Disconnect your Directv receiver from your television, Then connect the VCR to the television either through coax or RCA cables. If using the coax cable connect the out to tv on the VCR to the television. If using RCA cables connect the RCA OUT to the television AV1 connection. Once that is done, connect tha Directv receiver to the VCR using either coax or RCA cables. the Directv receiver only has RCA outputs so, if using RCA cables connect to VCR in. Remember that in order to see the Directv the VCR needs to remain on and it must be on the channel line in. If using coax cable connect to the VCR where it says in from antenna. Remember that if using this method your VRC does not have th remain on to view Direct. If you're trying to record Directv, then your VCR need to be on the same channel as the Directv output channel either channel 3 or 4. If trying to record Directv using RCA connections the VCR needs to be on the AV settings. If you have any futher questions please feel free to call me at (361)510-0339

Hook up vcr

yes, you need to use an Audio/Video cable (red, white, yellow) to hook to the TV. I've never seen a VCR that doesn't have coax connectors for the antenna input and TV ouput, but maybe the new ones are starting to leave that out. Normally, you run the antenna or cable coax into the VCR's input, then run another coax from the VCR output to the TV's input (or use an A/V cable)

No sound from VCR

OK here we go, The system is connected in the following manner: DTV-----RG6Coax-----VCR-------RG6Coax-------TVset Might I suggest a simple test? from the VCR to the TV use the Video and Stereo RCA outputs. The reason I want you to do this is to see if the Audio signal is being processed by the VCRs circuitry. I think it is. If it is then you problem might be the modulator that is used from the VCR to the TV when the VCR is on. You see when the VCR is off the RF connections are basically a switched pass-thru, when the VCR is on the switch send the signal to the VCR circuitry and the back into a Modulator and into the audio and video output RCA jacks. If the test works then the signal is being processed by the VCR and it might be a modulator problem, if not then the issue might be the actual RF input circuit prior to the demodulator. Another test would be to play a tape to see if the tape plays. If it does then this narrows down the trouble area between demodulator and the audio and video detector stages. If there is an internal proble you may want to take your unit to a radio and Tv repair shop.
