Since you have a VCR built into the same unit and it plays normal, the problem you are having can only be in the DVD circuitry. cleaning the lens won't help, if it plays the video it is reading the disc just fine. Cleaning the disc won't help either, because just like the lens, if it is playing the video it is also reading the audio track. The laser does never reads only the video and not the audio. It gets all the data in a single data stream of digital data. It seperates that data in a series of IC's on the DSP board. The laser is good, all things associated with the laser are good.

all cable connections are good, the VCR is playing fine, there are no other audio outputs for the DVD player to cause the audio not to play on the audio output the VCR is using.

The real problem you are having is nothing that can be fixed by the end user. It could be a digital to analog convertor ic, it could be the codec IC, or a muting transistor in the DVD circuit. There is absolutly no way to troubleshoot this problem without an O-scope, multimeter, and some very, very good troubleshooting skills.

I have been repairing electonics since 1990 and I think I am pretty darn good, I have repaired hundreds of DVD players. I can assure you that the only way to fix this problem is to take it to an authorized service center for your product.

Sorry you had to wait this long to get the right advice but I just started using this website a few days ago.

Run a DVD cleaner (available in the computer supplies section of your local Wal-Mart) through the DVD and see if your results don't improve. It could very easily be a dirty reading lens causing the problem, especially since you report no problems with the VCR, otherwise we'd look into the possibility of a bad cable connection between the TV and input device itself.

Can not get sound playing a vcr tape but can get sound playing a dvd please help


What connections are you using for the DVD and VCR output for both the video and audio?
If you are using a "digital" signal (such as optical audio/HDMI/etc) the VCR audio will not pass through these outputs. You will need to connect up the analog (red/white) RCA connectors on the back of your unit to hear the VCR audio
I hope this help, Magoo

I have a vhs/hq ..i have visual but no audio for a program i recorded last thursday. I tried recording from tv now and still no sound but picture. I played other movies or previous recorded things in vhs...


Try first to ensure that the scart lead at the back of the set or any AV leads that you are using are secure and tight.

Sometimes if the scart lead is not pushed home correctly it will lose audio. Try then to record a sample of video and try playback.
If there is still no sound try another scart lead first.

It will be a process of elimination I'm afraid.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.


Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.

Sounds really broken. Unless you can find a replacement DVD drive for low money , you may have to junk it.
