Guide Rollers Won't Engage

I submitted the problem "Cassette loading process won't complete" and indicated that the cassette basket (not "carriage", sorry) won't drop. After working with it further I found out that this is only true when I push on the basket manually. When I actually insert a cassette, the basket DOES drop but the guide rollers don't engage. Ocassionally the roller, guide, or spindle on the swinging plastic arm to the right side of the basket catches the tape and pulls it out but not always. The VCR inevitably spits the cassette back out, pulling a bit of the tape out as it slides back over the stationary guide rollers. Throughout this process the cassette door (if that's the correct term for the entrance to the cassette basket) never closes. As before, there are no unusual sounds - whirring, clicking, or otherwise - associated with the problem. Thanks.

Reset vo-9850


This is usually caused by frayed wires in the cassette carriage. There is a bundle of colored wires that take the sensor outputs to the harness from the carriage. After many loads, they eventually break and need replacing. They are brown, red, orange and yellow from memory in a bundle of four, about 2 inches long and are soldered at each end to small circuit boards at the back right hand side of the cassette carriage (assuming you are standing at the front of the machine).
Otherwise you could have a dusty or faulty opto-coupler in the carriage. Another problem is when the cassette slips back when loading starts. Try keeping a finger on the back of the cassette as it loads into the machine to keep it engaged. Don't jam your finger, as soon as the tape goes forward enough and then begins to drop down, get the hell out of there!

Cassette wont go down


This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette does not loads it is a fault on the loading mechanism as once the cassette is put into the hodler and pressed down the load motor must take up to forward the mechansim and mode..
2. Defective loading motor, loading drive mechanism or carriage alignment.
3. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
4 Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.

I have a Panasonic NV-FJ600 VCR which ejects every cassette which is loaded , and the two guide rollers remain at the rear of the machine and do not move forward to engage the tape .


If you mean the guides are on either side of the head drum, and the carriage is in eject position, the mechanism is out of alignment. Re-alignment and re-timing may require a workshop service by a professional Panasonic agent.

The bad news is the likely cost(s) involved if parts are replaced.

The NV-FJ600A VCRs were good models a few years ago, one of the first 'super long play' series Panasonic launched.

They use the Z-mech series of decks. These are not impossible to re-align/re-time, unlike previous mech designs, but depending on the extent of wear/damage, can prove uneconomical for a budget VCR which would now be close to 10 years old.

Panasonic NV HD630 is showing error f06 when the eject button is pressed. The tape cassette seems to be locked in and does not rise. I have removed the top. The tape is withdrawn back to the cassette....


You have a K-Deck mechanism. F06 means the mechanism locks after unload. The cause of this is the load motor or the carriage alignment.
If you enter "Panasonic K-Deck" into google you should find service information and a guide to getting the tape out - all free!

Vhs tape won't load completely


I assume the cassette flap lifts fully, allowing the tape to go into the deck as this is a small lever mechanism. When the tape goes so far in, it activates a switch to start the loading motor this is usually a metal or plastic pin on the deck depending on the make of VCR (as you do not mention the model of your VCR, I can only give you an overall explination of a carriage mechanism). The pins at the side can incorporate a start sequence as well & will guide the deck into position. It looks like your machine has gone out of alignment & to solve the problem you would need to remove the cassette housing & re-align the pin at the side so that it follows the correct path, this can sometimes be a tricky & awkward thing to do as you can break parts of the deck if it is not aligned correctly. My advice would be to take it to a service repair centre.

I am getting a supply Rec Paper Cassette alarm error. How do i fix this and have it work again.


Hi ..

This error comes when the paper is not loaded properly in the cassette ... Follow the below instructions to load the cassette and I am sure you will not get the error again.

  1. Grip the cassette handle, and pull it out towards you until the cassette comes to a stop.

  2. Open a package of paper, and remove the paper stack. small_note.gif black_dot.gif If the paper is curled, uncurl it before placing it in the cassette. Failure to do so will cause paper creases and a paper jam. black_dot.gif 17 lb to 20 lb bond (64 to 80 g/m2 ) paper is acceptable. black_dot.gif The cassette holds up to approximately 500 sheets of 20 lb bond (80 g/m2 ) paper.

  3. Load the paper stack beneath the cassette's length guide (1) and width guide's claw (2).
    load_paper_in_cassette.gif small_note.gif black_dot.gif Make sure that the paper stack does not exceed the length and width guides' claws in the cassette. Failure to do so will cause a paper jam. black_dot.gif Do not load extra paper when there is still paper left in the cassette. black_dot.gif Only load one size of paper into the cassette. Do not load different sizes of paper into the cassette at the same time. black_dot.gif Do not load labels or transparencies into the cassette.

  4. Gently insert the cassette as far as it will go.
small_note.gif black_dot.gif The cassette is for plain paper, colored paper or recycled paper only. Loading other paper in the cassette may cause a paper jam. black_dot.gif If copies are curled, or a paper jam occurs, remove the paper stack from the cassette. Turn it over and then place it in the cassette. black_dot.gif If you load paper while making copies, do not load a different paper size.
Closing the cassette When closing the cassette, make sure to push it in completely as far as it will go. If copying is performed when the cassette is not pushed in completely, it will cause a paper jam.

If copy paper is sticking out of the cassette Sometimes, when you pull out the cassette, paper may stick out, as shown in the illustration below. Make sure that the paper is neatly loaded into the cassette, before you push the cassette back into the main unit.

Loading tapes


I had a similar issue where the tape bay would not lock in and engage the motor mechanism to load the tape. I removed the battery from the unit and let it stand for approximately a minute then reinserted the battery. The tape drawer closed first without a tape then reopened with no issue. I then inserted a new tape with no issue. I guess it needed a hard reboot.

Cassette loading process won't complete


This is a problem with the process called 'tape loading' - pulling the tape loop out of the cassette and wrapping it around the spinning video drum, engaging the capstan and pinch roller and reel rotation. If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the VCR and Check all the belts above and below the deck. Belts can appear to be firm but if they do not return immediately to their relaxed length when you stretch them 25%, they will need to be replaced. With the cover off, observe the behavior when you hit play. (You may need to put a piece of cardboard over the cassette to block external light from interfering with the start/end tape sensors). Assuming this is a basic VCR (no instant start features), you should see: 1. The video head drum begins to spin. 2. the roller guides move smoothly on the tracks, wind the tape around the drum, and stop snuggly pressed against the 'V-stopper' at the end of the tracks. 3. The pinch roller moves into position and presses the tape against the capstan. 4. The tape begins to move and is wound up by the takeup reel. 5. The picture and sound appear on the TV. With a 'rapid or quick start' (or it may be called something else) transport, the tape moves to a half-loaded position when the cassette is inserted. This is at an intermediate position partially pulled out of the cassette but not wrapped around the drum. On VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape will be in contact with the control head. With an 'instant start' transport, the tape will fully load around the spinning drum when the cassette is inserted but the capstan will not engage and no tension will be applied to the tape until you press PLAY or REC. (After about 5 minutes, the drum will stop and it may unload to the half loaded or unloaded position.) Note that for VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape must be in contact with the control head (but not the video heads) for all relevant modes. These VCRs (which include many modern units) must therefore pull the tape at least partly out of the cassette. In all cases, the completion of the sequence results in approximately the same mechanical configuration during PLAY.
