No sound Problem - Philips VR550 VHS VCR

I have had my philips VR550 VCR for just two years, but last night I recorded a program but it didn't have any sound on playback. I tryed the cables at the back to see if they were loose, I also tryed the mute button and recorded something, but I still get no sound.

Thanks. Christina.

If your pre-recorded tapes also play without sound, then check the scart lead is in straight.

If not, then it's more likely to be a dirty audio head.

Try a VHS head cleaner tape.

We live in france so we have got sattelite tv.The philips vr550 is a follow tv video,the problem is it needs tobe connected to an airel for it to work.But we have got scart leads i have tried connecting...


I am a bit confused? A vcr will only need the aerial to pick up signals for TV signals broadcast by a transmitter. As long as the vcr has two scart sockets you can connect your TV to AV1 and the sat box to AV2 and it should record the sat picture and you can watch it by switching your TV to the AV channel. Of course the video will only be any good to record things from sat if your out or in bed. Because you can't watch one channel, record another with the vcr.
I suggest you have a word with your sat company about the record a program service or provide you with a multi room service so you can record channels whilst viewing others.

Can't record from tv


You did not mention the brand and model of the TV so it is unlikely we can answer your question.

If the TV is equipped with outputs for audio and video or a composite output, this should be difficult.
Many sets of all kinds involved with A/V use a fairly standard set of color coded in/outputs to simplify interconnecting them.

Playback sound


Unit might be picking up 60 cycle hum or other electromagnetic field. Is VCR sitting on/under another piece of electronic equipment? If so, it could pick up such from the power supply circuitry of that other device. Try moving the VCR away from other equipment and see if the unwanted sound disappears.
