DVD produces a great picture with sound - but the VCR is not producing a picture? is it snowy? or a black screen? if it is a black screen, the video output from the VCR is possibly faulty, this is not economical to repair. If it is just snow, and there is slight evidence of a playback picture from your tapes, try cleaning the video heads with a head cleaning cassette (available from eBay and electronics stores as a discontinued stock item).
Since Hi-Fi VCRs have the left and right stereo track on their head drums, and this drum becomes worn or dirty, the sound deteriorates along with the picture - mono sound usually with lots of snow.
This is a combo unit - it has a VCR/DVD common output section on the rear - allowing DVD and VCR pictures to be viewed when the respective drive is selected. When you checked your input connection, did you check the rear of the unit? you may have connected 'DVD priority out' instead of the VCR/DVD common out. If you did connect the common out, and still have no VCR picture, try the head cleaning suggestion as above. If that fails, consider replacing the unit as a last resort.

This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.
