Generally it is cost effective if you repair the board,
if the cost of repair is almost same as the new board then you should go for new board

    better you try repair the same audio board itself.........if it is new one then you can apply for warranty

  • balachander megavarnam

    because if you repair the board ........it may void the warranty

    for Sony, Panasonic and Canon the audio board is usually costs around
    $195..........so it is better to repair the old board itself

    if you have $195 you can go with the new board itself..........if you have then you can go with repairing the old one

I have an old Sony CCD TR55E Handycam, I bought from new. Now I want to transfer my tapes to DVD, and seem to have lost sound output playing tapes to TV/Recorder. Tried running tape cleaner, no succes


What is your signal path? The question you need to answer is, "Where are you losing the audio?" Are you losing it between the tape and the playback head, or are you losing it in the cable, or are you losing it at the TV/Recorder?

Does the camera have an audio out into which you can plug ear buds to test the audio from the camera playback?

How to clean a VCR tape machine.


You just rented a tape and your VCR will not track properly or you tried to record a tape and it would not play back. You have a dirty machine.

Remove the power. Remove the top cabinet by removing all the screws on the back and probably a few on the bottom. Once the top is off look to see where the video tape comes into the machine. Directly ahead of the input is the video drum assembly. It should be about 2 or 3 inches in diameter and be directly in front of the tape slot. It is very fragile and should never have any cleaning device moved up and down on it.

Once you locate the video drum you should saturate a cotton swab with a 100% alcohol solution and while turning the drum slowly with the swab pressed against the video drum you should be able to clean the heads.

The heads are very small and very fragile. Any vertical movement will break them. After cleaning the video heads move to the erase head, CTL head and audio head.

The erase head is located to the left of the tape path entry to the video drum assembly. The CTL head is located with the audio head on the right side of the tape exit from the video drum assembly. Using a swab saturated with alcohol clean all these heads.

You should also clean the tape path and load mechanism ( the tracks that the tape guides slide on). Clean the pinch roller and capstan.

All cleaning supplies such as 100 percent alcohol and lint free cleaning swabs are available at http://www.mcminc.com .

This should complete the cleaning of your VCR. If all went well the unit should now work.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Heads and tape path need cleaning


if you don't know what u are doing u shouldn't mess with video head. U can easily damage the head. If cleaning tape does not work have tech do it. Should be relatively cheap.

Go video VR4940 VCR video recording has sound but no picture


You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

Audio drops out every few sec.(3 sec.) then ok for about 5 sec. it seams as i shake camcorder lightly side to sides the intervals changes too +1 -1. i have red here problem as tape misalignment which is...


Thats a possibility. I don't know why it costs so much since all you have to to is take a small screw driver and adjust the audio head. You might try cleaning it with a DV tape cleaner and see if that makes a difference. It's cheaper than the repair shop.

VCR acting strange with audio and playing


It sounds like the audio control head is at fault.
If all prerecorded tapes (movies) play with audio level jumping up and down, is is likely that the audio head is dirty. The audio head in the VCR looks very similar to a head of an old audio cassette player.
First, try to clean the audio head by running a VHS head cleanning tape. The cleanning tape will usually clean the path of all tape mechanisms..

Good Luck
