    I have the same problem, but with a small Audiovox 8" Kitchen LCD TV. These are made exclusively for Target, and it's a well known issue across the many customer reviews I read. It appearantly affects more people using Over-The-Air (OTA) reception, and only on certain channels, rather than channels received using cable or satellite sources, but I don't have any personal experience with it. Don't know what this could be.

"chirping" in the audio may be an indication of a tape path alignment problem. if the tape path alignment is off, the audio will "chirp" or drop out.

I have a logic tv which is just out of guarantee. Worked perfectly. Switched it off during the weekend. When I switched it on yesterday, I have sound but no picture. Any suggestions please?

Hi CJ,

First let's make sure you simply haven't pressed the MUTE button on the TV or LogicTV set top box (if equipped - I'm unfamiliar with LogicTV but most of these problems come back to a pretty simple solution). Adjust the volume down to 1/4 level.

If that is OK, make sure that you have selected the correct audio output mode for LogicTV. Typically, a Stereo Output is offered that uses a traditional Left and Right cable and jacks. The jacks are usually Red and White and labeled L and R. Other audio options include a Coaxial or Optical output over a single audio cable. This may be call a Digital Audio or Dolby Digital output. Finally, an HDMI output may be offered that sends BOTH the video AND audio over a single cable with a wider, flat jack that looks a *little* like a USB plug.

Determine which audio type your LogicTV uses and make sure that you have directed the LogicTV to use that same connection in the setup. Next, check that the A /V input for LogicTV is ALSO using the same audio type in the TV set up. If all is set right and there is still no audio continue below.

Next, we need to determine if there is no audio on ALL input sources of the TV. Try connecting an A / V device such as a VHS, DVD, video game console to one of the other A / V inputs of the TV and select it. Start the device and once you have a picture, check for sound. if you do not have sound, there may be a problem with the TV speaker or amplifier.

If you have sound, that eliminates a problem with the TV speaker and amplifier. Remove the VHS / DVD/ Game cables from the TV input. Move the LogicTV input cables to the input jacks that were just used by the VHS / DVD / Game and see if you can hear the sound in the new input selection. If not, there may be a problem with the LogicTV set top box.

Hopefully, you've found the problem! Good luck!

How do I connect a VCR to a Sony Bravia TV?

Usually video and audio outputs from VCR comes in composite (yellow RCA female connector) or S-Video outputs for video and L and R (white and red female RCA connectors) for stereo ouputs or black RCA female connector for mono output, you must look for the matching analog inputs at your TV set, the RF output can be used too, you only must tune the TV at the channel used by VCR.

LXI VHS - No Video on TV

Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

Different sound to picture

When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.

Sony VCR w/ no audio

You have not mentioned the model no. so I can only talk generally.
Most common reason for this would a fault in the vif module or audio processor IC.
Not a DIY fault.
