Panasonic aj-d230h I need to have this unit serviced.  Tapes won't rewind without an error message coming up.  Seems to play, FF, and record okay.  Also would like to enquire about the firewire upgrade.

Without knowing the exact error message, I can only speculate, but most rewind errors I have seen with the AJ-D230 are related to problems with capacitors on either the reel motor driver board or the system control board. the firewire upgrade (AJ-YAD230) is no longer available.

I have a panasonic dvcpro aj-d230h deck and i keep getting an E-00 error...does anyone know how to fix this ?


Err-00 lights when servo disturbances continue for
3 or more seconds during playback, recording or
editing.
I have seen this problem before, and it was due to a bad servo board.

Digitized picture playing out from Panasonic AJ-D230H


There are several PCB's in the DVC:

Input TBC
Video IO
Audio
Mechanical \ IF
Digital Core
RF
AVSYSCON
backplane

all of these boards have lots of, electrolytic can, surface mount capacitors:
upon researching the MFG specifications of the caps used by Panasonic, i found that they have a lifetime use rating in hours at a given temperature..

3000 hours of use at 100 deg c

these caps dry up and the power supplys get noisy and the caps that are employed in time constant circuit applications function out of spec ( if at all )

For about 3 months have been refurbinshing units successfully by replacing all of these caps

panasonic makes all of thes caps available as a service part kit

however the pcb's are very deleicate

I am only successful because I have 15 years of electronics engineering ecperience..

there is a tool call a Capacitor ERS analyzer ( Equivalt Series Resistance )
a good cap will measure .25 to 2 ohms and anything above 5 ohms is stale

I am getting set up in a new building for serviceing 230's and 255's at first and then i'll expand
I use a electronics assembly house to do the replacment of alll of the cap that go stale.

I have put together caps lists and digikey part #'s and generated my own re-capping kit that is much cheaper that the kit offered bt panasonic.

Panasonic AJ-D230H DV/Mini DV VCR


in the past I used a place called robbs repair; however they charged from 1000 to 2500 dollars to repair a machine that was only worth 3000.

So thats when I decided to bring the service of our 230's and 255's in house..

I have 15 years of electronics engineering experience and alot of that focused in broacast audio and video.


I am getting set up in a new building to do this as a business now: I used to be a TV station engineer but decided I try making a business of this.

I have experience completely refubishing the 230 and 255 models.
I have already coordinated with an electronics assembly house and got excellant pricing quotations for the sevice of replacing all of the capacitors on the boards in the unit that go stale after 5000 to 8000 hours of use ...

This is only one of the major problems the all dvc's encounter:
reel motors, captsans and elevator\ejector assemblies, cleaning rollers and pinch rollers all need replacement for a complete refurb.


500 bucks for a complete recapping, and a quote would have to be provided for the replacement of the other parts based on the units needs...

Bit error rate tests are done on recorded playbacks, so that I dont just send you a machine that plays video; because the machine employs 'forward error correction' in the recorded digital video ..
meaning you can have a machine that is barely working with lots of errors, but still plays back fine..

And we dont want this: we want to return a machine that is robust with lots of margin and very little bit error.

AJ-D250 PANASONIC E-62 PROBLEM


E-62 error on AJ-D250 points to a cassette housing problem. either replace the cassette housing or have it rebuilt (replace gears on the sides that raise and lower the cassette). "replace belts" won't work - the AJ-D250 doesn't have any belts.

Yes you need to use th AJ-CS750P on the 230, I have had it work with almost every type of DVCpro machine.

Error E-11


most common cause for this problem is defective electrolytic capacitors on the mechanical interface board. a good electronic tech should be able to replace them.
