SOURCE: AG-DV1000P that powers off when tape is put in.

I have seen a couple of these decks that had broken solder connections at the rear AC power connector.  the main board has to be removed to access the connections.

Have you push down the cassette tray before closing the lid?

SOURCE: miniDV tape stuck inside

sounds like a defective cassette housing, but i have seen problems with jvc decks and camera when tdk or maxell tapes were used. the lids on these tapes seem to get stuck in the cassette housings in jvc equipment. jvc even recommends that tdk and maxell tapes be avoided.

I had the exact same problem; my tape icon was flashing red with a line through it and the recorder would not record, no matter how hard I begged it to. After a full day of frustration, I called the videographer who had used it previously. There is a little trick.

1. Open the exterior tape door with the "Eject" button.
2. Wait, dont touch the tape. The little metal encasement will pop over and open within a few seconds.
3. To properly put the tape in, insert tape, push the little metal door that sais "Push this first".
4. Then push the exterior door closed.

Voila! Thats all there is to it!

Hi - I have a panasonic ag-7330 SVHS deck. It lights up but does absolutely nothing. The Video Rec Servo light is blinking constantly. Any ideas?


It could have a timer record present that needs to be cleared. Otherwise it could be the mode switch playing up. But that too can be caused by physical damage inside the unit, thus setting the mechanism in the wrong position. In other words it thinks it is in record mode when it's not!

Panasonic AG-DVC10 Startup Issue


Most likely cause for this problem is defective power switch and defective record start/stop switch. The DVC7, DVC10 and DVC15 all use similar switches, and I have repaired all three.

Vcr tape problem


It sounds like the tracking information is being lost for brief periods of time. Tracking is recorded at the lower edge of the tape, and if the tape is wrinkled or otherwise damaged in this area, playback will go out to lunch. A visual check of the tape would be in order. Have the heads been cleaned in these machines? This would be another area to check.... Also, there could be small differences in the tape path alignments, perhaps the control/audio head alignment is slightly different between the 2 machines.

Any have the Panasonic ag-455 SVHS manual?


Hey I think it would difficult to find a manual for a AG-455, though being very similar to the AG-456 (which seems to be more popular) would you be happy with the manual for that model? I downloaded the AG-456 manual from somewhere last year but unfortunately can't remember from where. I do have the PDF file if you're interested though.. Would be happy to send to you if you're interested. Cheers
