Issue with the toilet

The toilet in an upstair bathroom does not have water in the bowl but the tank is full of water. What could be the issue? Do I need to replace the whole set? Thanks.

What happens when you flush?

push that little handle over there on the left of the tank and water will go into the bowl.

just kidding.

your question is not very explanatory. Are you saying the bowl does not fill up after the flush? Does the small tube coming from the ball-**** valve point into the overflow tube? Does water run through it during the fill cycle and into the bowl?

give a bit more info to get a reasonable answer.

when flushed, water does flow from tank to bowl but after that, the bowl cannot hold any water. it is completedly dry.

well, you didn;t answer any questions I asked so without additioanl info;

if the water does not flow through the overflow tube as I asked about earlier, the ballcock valve is the problem.

if the water gets "sucked" from the bowl, you probably have a blocked vent stack and needs to be cleaned out (garden hose would do generally) if you use a hose and the stack fills up or does not fluch out whatever is in the stack, you would need to use a snake to dislodge whatever is in there.

just one last thought. is the floor wet? or the ceiling of the area directly below this?
