    There is a connectivity diagrams solution on the Sony webpage. You didn't state whether it was a dvd player or recorder you had. Assuming it's a recorder then the connection diagram should be something like this :

    If this is NOT your setup go onto the Sony home page and enter in your equipment you need to connect.

    The sound fault is possibly a bad connection on your scart leads or a faulty lead. Try a new lead containing a fully wired (all 21 pins) connection.

    It could also be a faulty sound head connection on the vcr - especially as you say the tape was jumping about a lot.
    The tape should have a smooth crossing across both the video and sound drum heads. If not then expect some faults to be evident on tape playback.

    No sound on a SCART wired setup often means the SCART cable has become partially dislodged from its socket at one end of the cable - ie VCR or TV.

    Try checking the SCART plugs are both firmly pressed home into their sockets and the cable plug's edge looks 'parallel' to the socket - ie that physically and visually it appears pressed in correctly.
