    Thank you for the advice. I ended up taking the machine to a repairman and it turns out that there was a defective gear. It has been replaced, and now, $60. later, it's working fine.

If I remember correctly, press and hold the power button for ten seconds or a little more. If its not the power button try any button but I am pretty sure you will not be discouraged.

Problem detected with this unit on the display won't function


Did it "seem" unbalanced, or "sound" unbalanced. Can you turn the unit on and then get the fault message, or is system locked in fault? You can download the manual at:

http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=WPGT9360EPL

Look through the troubleshooting section and see if it can answer your questions. Also, warranty information is located in the manual as well ;-)

Vhs tape is stuck and message reads "tape


Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

I have a FO-2080 fax machine and it is displaying a message system error (E1-00) and will not work at all.


Page 69 on operation manual suite Source: http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForBusiness/DocumentSystems/FaxMachines/Manuals/fax_man_FO2080_suite.pdf
Error indicator is lit or blinking.
SYSTEM ERROR [XX - XX] REFER TO USER GUIDE
When [L1-00] appears, the scan head locking switch is locked. Turn off the power, release the scan head locking switch, and turn the power back on page 13 on the manual
The machine will not function. Turn the power switch off, wait about 10 seconds, and then turn on the switch again. If this does not clear the error, remove the power cord from the outlet, and contact your SHARP service center.

Stuck tape


The tape won't come out when resetting the drive. Error 6 is serious.
To get out the tape you must open the drive. But IBM has a discription online (and in the user manual) how you can do this.

Error E3 on Mitsubishi HS-U795


Try this :
If your VCR malfunctions, try the following steps prior to contacting your Mitsubishi Dealer:
1 Check the Trouble Checks below to see if there is a solution to the current problem that you are
experiencing.
2 If the problem is not addressed on the Trouble Checks, the safety circuits in the VCR may be in
operation, thus please try the following: (the clock setting and the timer recording will be deleted.)
1 If possible, press EJECT on the front panel and remove the tape.
2 Press TIMER RESET on the rear panel with a pencil or a ball point pen.
3 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, wait about 1 minute
until the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
3 You may also try the following procedure if the above steps did not resolve the problem (All settings will
be reset to the default settings.).
1 Press POWER on the front panel continuously for about 8 seconds until the current time display on
the front panel shows "- : - -."
2 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, the tape protecting
function will work and "99" will appear on the front panel display to begin count down. Wait about 1
minute until it reaches "00" to show the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
If the problem with your VCR persists, contact your Mitsubishi dealer for assistance.

VCR Tape Stuck


Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
