Toshiba 13 inch tv/vcr quits recording audio

My unit quits recording audio on vcr tapes about 45 minutes after starting to record. Sometimes it will restore itself and sometimes not. Happens on brand new tapes and when re-recording old ones. Have run the cleaning tape a couple of times. Naturally the owner's manual doesn't mention anything like this. Anyone got any ideas?

Does the audio "cutout" suddenly, or does it ''drift" off and on?...accordianman

    Does it do this while you are recording or does the problem appear during playback?

I cannot find my manual what is the speed to record on the vcr for 8 hours


Unfortunately, most VCR recorders/tapes don't have an 8 hour option. It is 2 hours on SP (standard), LP for 4 hours or EP (SLP, depending on the unit) for 6 hours. (The slower recording speed usually gives poorer video quality.)

You would need a non-standard VCR cassette to get 8 hour recording. If you do have a tape that would hold 3 hours at SP, then use an EP setting to get 8 hours of recording on your VCR. I don't think I've seen any tapes that do that recording length even when VCRs were popular.

I wish that I had better news.

Vcr will not record sound any more.


Try with another cable, the cable may either be loose or damaged. If that doesn't work it is a problem with the VCR itsself

Hello, you can go to the toshiba web site and download the manual from there.
The other option is to go into the TV menu, and select the timer rec set selection and access it there and fill in the times for the program you want to recording and that should do it.
I hope tihs helps.

Digital TV Converter Box


I have a Panasonic TV with built-in VCR, I had Comcast put in a converter box and was given instructions on how to set up the system to record my wife's programs, I had to select the program (in advance of scheduled time) to be recorded through the TV & converter box to the VCR. Next styep- select "Show" and I received a menu the first of which was "R" I clicked the "R" and a menu for selecting Repeat record start/stop times appeared Click OK and was then directed to to set up the VCR according to Panasonic VCR instructions. Worked for a day then the "R" menu on the converter box disappeared. Both the VCR and TV had to be set to Ch 3 to get it to work, But that's history. When it quit working ("R" menu), I had Comcast come get their box . PS The tech who showed up to pick up the converter box knew nothing about any "R" (record) menus except on the most ecpensive converter box. That cinched my decision, Oh Wel!. Sign me Tom with less trash to watch.

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes


All you can do by yourself unlesss you are a tech. Is run a head cleaner tape through it. It sound like a dirty head to me. Here is something a lot of people do not know, The video head and the audio head in a VCR are two separate heads. thats why you can loose picture and not sound. Best taken apart and cleaned manually with rubbing alchol but not advisable if you are not experienced due to high voltage and if cleaning improperly you can damage the unit worse. Good Luck

Audio on recorded tape


you could try a wet type tape head cleaner but I doubt if that will help but it couldnt hurt. These combo units are built so tight together I wouldnt recomend that you try to open it. I would though look through the front door and look toward the right side and see if something got inserted into the machine and is blocking the audio head. If this dosent get you back audio then you have a curcuit problem and you are gonna need to take her in for an estimate Good Luck
