How are you outputting the audio and video? There is a built-in RF
modulator with an RCA connector that outputs VHF to a television, and there
is an 8-pin (5-pin on really old C64s) audio/video monitor connector that
converts the audio to an RCA plug that plugs into your monitor or an audio
If you're using one, try the other.
If you're using a monitor cable, it's possible you have a bad cable or
forgot to plug in the audio connection.
The RF connection is designed to connect to an RCA male-to-male cable that
plugs into an RF switchbox, but you can use a piece of coax cable with an
RCA plug on one end and a standard coax cable connector on the other to plug
into most modern television sets.
