I having recording programs for a long time and never had this problem. After recording a movie last night on a new VHS tape, I have a picture and no sound. Doesn't matter if I adjust the volume on the TV. I partially recorded over another used tape (with sound recorded) to see if it was just a bad tape cassette. Nope. I read through the instruction guide, and the only two solutions given are either check if the tv is in line mode (not) or adjust the volume. What shall I do?

Re: No sound on tape
many faults for that
1- have you tried to play an old tape with sound to check that the video plays sound ?? if you have the sound of a previous tape then move to
2- from where you are recording if you are recording from tv rf channels then move to 3 or if you are recording from dve chek the audio connection that are coming from dvd to video and change it
3- the remaining last fault is you have a dirty audio head needs cleaning and if you don't know how to do so go to qualified person and if you are familiour with that open case and clean and if no refer to 5
5- the audio head it is a chrome cube with a black two thins lines in the right of the mechanism near the pinch roller rounded thing that draws the tape to move
get a clean cloth and spread alchohol on it and rub the rectangle cube audio head up and down ovewr the two thin black things inside it

Is the VHS tape you are trying to record a commercial VHS tape (movie)? If so, it may have copy protection on it. The recorder is probably programmed to prevent you from making and using DVDs of commercial copy-protected VHS tapes.
U play another movie like a Hollywood movie DVD disc play on it have no squealing noises wright?Yes,than the blank DVD discs batch u have is bad.Tries buy another batch DVD blank discs,tries recording again should solved this problems.
You already have Movies on TDK E-HG 120 VHS tapes; All you want is to Transform the media on the tapes into another record Media or on DVD.
The following process would make possible the project
1. A DVD Recorder device would transform the movies already on one media to another media.
Note: The recorder that would be acquired should have a feed area for the VHS tapes on one hand, to be played, while on the other hand, a DVD disk area from which disk medium would be recorded.
The devices required to make the process achievable includes
1. The DVD Recorder or Player alsoo known with multi perpose functionality for signal convertion capability
2. The DVD recordable disks on which to record a movies onto.
The process of recording would require selection features determinable on the recorder device else would produce movies with undesireable features
For example; VHS movies are appear in decodeable formats integral when displayed on VHS players. The caution is to select a signal conversion format suitable for movies that have to transform between recordable media.
1. A DVD disk medium has formats as design specification and on which requires consideration when attempting to transfer multi media or motion pictures.
Type of formats of decodes
Whenever the option is available, select NTSA or PAL for appropiate code transformation
Your DVD RECORDER DEVICE SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION TO RECORD CONSIDERING MOVIES ACROSS MEDIUM TYPES
consult professional advise before acquiring an devices and mediums
If any consultation is required, refer to user guides or manuals of the devices in question.
Consult a technical expert when the need requires it.
Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only things I can think of are:
- Make sure the disc is a blank one.
- Try a different disc.
- Make sure the tape you are trying to dub is not encoded with Macrovision copyguarding. If it is a home-made recording then you are OK, but a factory recording on a store bought tape may cause some difficulties.
If you are still having troubles try a complete 15 minute reset by unplugging from the power source.
Hi, try getting a VHS Head Cleaner; if that don't work? try ajusting the tracking system on the remote. Modern VHS Cassette Players, and or recorders, usally have (Auto Tracking) built-in. Thanks paul7of9
Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.
It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours
Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.
Most VCRs of the last 10+ years are programmed via the remote box. If you have the matching remote, there should be a button which brings up an on-screen menu where you can select various functions such as setting the time/date, tape speed, channel programming, and the unattended recording you desire.
