Hello,

First, you need to check if the cables are properly connected to the television. Then you also check if you have your television on the appropriate channel that is to work with the DVD player/VCR combo for instance the AV channel. Then you can further try to change the cord used in connecting the DVD player to the television, if it does the same, then the problem is most likely from either the DVD's Audio Video port or from the Televisions Audio video port.

Have them both checked to detect which is faulty, and replace with the same type of port where fault is detected.

Take care and good luck

My vcr plays commercially-recorded tapes fine, but tapes recorded on it or another VCR play with the sound distorted. The picture seems fine.


Sounds like its mechanism need some alignment. Guide pole alignment. Contact any service technician. This is technically skilled work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Recording from VHS to DVDR was going fine,then I stopped getting a picture. DVD player is fine plays back recordings etc. However tape player starts to play shows picture then stops showing video and...


Possibly dirty video heads. I would suggest that you run a head-cleaning tape through the VCR deck to shift surface dirt off the heads. If that doesn't work, or it sort of works, but not satisfactorily, unplug unit, carefully remove top cover, and with the VCR deck in view, gently clean the heads with a soft cloth or special cleaning stick (these look like flat q-tips but are intended for VCRs - available from electronics/hobby stores) and some alcohol (methylated spirit will work if that's all you got - but isopropyl alcohol is recommended - available from the same places as the sticks) clean the guides (gently so as not to disturb their alignment) clean the pinch roller/capstan shaft - CTL (on the right-hand side of the drum) and FE (left side) heads as well. The whole tape path should be carefully cleaned. Refit top cover (carefully), plug unit back into power, wait until it completes its startup/loading procedure, then put a tape in. You should now have a playback picture with the sound. You only need to do this as required if head-cleaning cassettes don't work properly.

If none of the above cures your problem, then the heads are abraded/worn - let's hope that isn't the case here. This model does not use a built-in head cleaner.

VCR playback sound and pciture don't match


That is a tape path issue. The new VCR has the problem, usually the guide post for the tape sticks out when it shouldn't making the sound late for the picture because the gap between the video head and audio head is wrong.

Won't play tapes, just stays on the blue screen


ok. what you need to do it hit the side where the tape goes in...start out slow and then gradually hit harder and harder...not too hard though...because it sounds like a hardware jam...you need to unjam it by shaking it up a bit.

No picture


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

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.
