Question about Sony Televison & Video

VCR transmits audio but no video to TV following lightning strike

Since a major electrical storm in our area, my Sony SLV-EZ717 VCR is not transmitting video to the TV, only audio. This happens whether playing back a recorded video or merely accessing live TV via the VCR. The VCR is connected to the aerial and then the TV connects to the VCR. The TV and DVD player have been unaffected - the problem is confined to the VCR. Is it now scrap metal or can it be economically repaired or is there even an easy quick fix?

    It's an Audio-L, Audio-R and Video config. I tried using the cable from my DVD player in case the cable simply short-circuited. I still had sound but no picture. The DVD player works fine though.

    I'm using a Sony SLV-EZ717 VCR with a Panasonic TH-P42X10A Plasma TV. All was fine before the electrical storm.

How to record on a SOny SLV-N77 with a cable box


Hello
If the cable box you uses has audio video OUT sockets, then you can connect that sockets to the audion video IN to the VCR and can record the signals which you want. If it has no such audio video OUT with it, it will be very difficult to record programmes. But there is an other possibility; It is, if your TV has an AOUDIO VIDEO OUT sockets with it, you cn connect that to the AUDIO VIDEO IN to the VCR and can record the programmes. But in this case, you must switch ON all the devices, that is, Cabel box, Tv and VCR. OK.

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 :)

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717


It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.
