Open Question

Sound but no picture on TV w/ built in VCR when playing a video

I started a video and noticed it was at the end (everything was working fine.) So I decided to rewind the video on my TV with built in VCR and when I pushed play it gave me the sound but no picture. It looked all static. I put different tapes in the VCR and all did the same thing. I checked to see if it needed to be on a different channel (even though it never needed to be berfore). It still continued to give sound but no picture.

SOURCE: vcr will not accept video tape

A common problem on this unit is the Mode Switch. It gets dirty or sometimes breaks and must be replaced - definitely not a job for the unexperienced. If you mess up just a tiny bit, especially during re-assembly, your VCR unit will never work right ! Sorry for the bad news.

SOURCE: Trying to help this older

The TV should be on channel 2, 3, or 4 to work correctly. There might be a small switch on the back of the VCR that lets you select the channel that it wil play back on.

Also, look on the remote control for the VCR and see if there is a button labeled TV/Video, and press that while something is playing. This switches back and forth between the TV signal and the VCR signal and it could solve your problem.

SOURCE: Everything works but the picture; even on screen programming

try pluging cable wire directly to the tv to see if you get a picture you may have shorted out the rca connection may need to be repaired good luck.....

Magnavox dvd recorder/vcr

It sounds like you may have your vcr connected via composite cable. Check the back of your VCR and follow the cable to your TV. You should see a Red, White and Yellow connection on both ends. The Yellow connector is the video.

Here is an image to help you find it:

VCR sound works but no picture

It could be that the video heads are just clogged.
Get a known good video tape and put it in the unit and let it just play and play and play. Quality video tapes have head cleaning substances built into the tape. If this does not work, get a Scotch Black Watch tape head cleaner. If that does not work the the heads are bad or some other problem.

Goodmans Tv wont show dvds

Usually with DVD players, picture & no sound, or sound & no picture is caused by the scart lead not being plugged in properly.


Sound pins are at one end of the connector and audio pins at the other.

If you are using scart make sure that the plugs at both ends are pushed in all the way. The plastic part of the plug should just touch the socket.

If you are using S-Video (Round connector with 4 pins) you also need to connect a twin phono-phono (Red & Black or White) lead to carry the audio, as S-Video only carries video.

Picture

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.

No picture while playing DVD or VHS tape

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck
