I have a Zenith dvd/vcr combo connected to a Insignis hd flat screen tv. The dvd part works fine but when I put a vhs tape in there is video but no sound. I have it connected by composite and audio cables. Is there another cable I need so I get vhs sound? Thanks.

The audio output should be the same when playing either DVDs or VHS tapes. It could be that your tape heads are dirty (running a cleaning tape may help), or the particular tape you tried is defective (tapes degrade over time), or the device itself is defective.

Good luck.
