Question about Sony DVP-NS530 DVD Player

1 Answer

No Audio: I play either VHS tape or DVD for about and hour or so and the Audio cuts out. This was occuring at regular intervals. I was of the belief it was an internal thermal issue as this is how it was responding at regular intervals during watching. (I am an Electrical Engineer of 30 years so I am fairly aware of electronic failings) Then the other day the Audio cut out completely so now there is no Audio at all. Does any one have a solution for this. I remember reading somewhere the 530 did have Audio issues in the early production units? Do I need to replace an Amp and heatsink it better than it currently is? Heeeellllpppp!!!!! Regards, Ron

Re: No Audio:


it sounds like a dry joint to me. Look at the obvious places first, such as the amp as you mentioned. Anything that heats up and cools down will give problems, as I am sure you are aware. It could be a thermal issue. Has it always done it since new? thanks ST

VHS plays for 5 to 10 seconds then power switches off

I think you might have a problem with the VHS mechanism. Perhaps damage to the mechanical parts. If the mechanism can't perform the task it has been set after a very short period it will send a message to the electronics to shut down. This prevents further damage to the tape or system.

Audio noise on some, but not all VHS tapes


First thing i would say is go for the HI-FI audio would go in and out and pop etc. Adjusting the tracking would bring in the audio, but sometimes the video would get fuzzy. Get the picture right and the audio goes out. Switch to Linear (mono on some VCRs) and the audio should be fine.

Finally if this doesn't solve your problem then i would suggest you to give it to repair and they will fix it.

How to convert VCR to DVD

no easy way to do this unfortunately. You either need to connect your VCR to a DVD recorder and record it directly onto DVD or use a device such as this to connect your VCR to your computer and record it onto your computer that way.

Will a VHS from America play in my LG V181 video/DVD player

All American VHS recordings will be in NTSC system. If your player is compactable with NTSC system, you can play the VHS in your system. If it has no NTSC syste, the tape will play, but colour problems and vertical rolling will occur. OK.

I've had a DR-MV5S DVD video recorder & video cassette recorder for years to transfer DVD over to VHS tapes. Something has recently happened where I can't record VHS tapes. Can't play VHS tapes on the...

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?

Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

VHS to DVD: audio and visual dont match on playback

Hi, this is a problem with cramming too much info onto dvd.
For a good quality dvd, it needs to have about 1.5 to 2 hours of video on it. The more you put it the lower the quality it becomes. Don't forget though , it will never be better than the original.unless you have some specialist software to tidy up sound and flickers in the video.
So I would stick with one tape to one dvd if you want to keep the quality.
DVD's are cheap anyway, you can buy a spindle of 50 Verbatims for £10.

I hope this has helped you understand a little better, but if you need more assistance, then please ask.

Regards - Anthony

Transfering vhs to dvd

Is the vhs tape copy protected? I think you can only copy your own vhs tapes or what you record on tv. I could be wrong though.

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.

Video image problem- Blue screen?

If your unit is fairly new,your VCR part might be the problem.Take it back!
If you have this unit for awhile,two things:
1. You need a professional A/V repair guy to clean up and check your VCR head.
2. The rental VHS tape is dirty.
Good luck!
