One or more sections of the power supply are not coming on. This unit has both fuses and ICP's (integrated circuit protectors) in the power supply that may open up causing your symptom. You will need to check and/or replace any open fuses or ICP's. If they immediately open up again, you will need the manual to figure out what is loading the power supply, or what component in the power supply has failed.

How to fix code F60 problem?

Defect of Digital P.C.B. processing board and needs to be replaced. F60 is a result of a low or missing voltage on the digital board. Often the culprit would be capacitors that have leaked.

But first try a "cold boot". Unplug the device, wait 2 minutes, then plug it back in. When the 00000 display starts, hold down the POWER button for at least 10 seconds which puts the device into "standby mode". Wait another 10 seconds then press the POWER button.

TWO VCRs stopped working.

Yes, try to look inside (not in play) when you hit fast forward or rewind--are the reels turning too slow or jerking etc?

It indicates a problem with the transport part of the unit---bad drive idler or even a slipping or bad belt or belts if used.

Accordianman--Dual deck VCR not responding...

No. Sound like the Switch mode power supply is or has failed, to repair this would involve replacing capacitor and or some componets, Many repair shops these days have discontinude repairing VCR's becuse most of the time you can replace the entire unit for the cost of repairing it

No power to unit

Hi when you switch it on does anything light up like the display or standby light if not then it is going to be the internal fuse needs replacing these are cheap to buy it is located where the powe lead goes into the unit and it is a glass fuse take it to shop to make sure you get correct fuse let me know how you get on.
If the video lights up and you get standby light or any light check that the lock function on the controll isnt activated as this will cause the controll to fail let me know how you get on ok

No Power

Power supply problems are a good possibility. If you have a DC voltmeter, you could check the outputs. In standby mode, you should see at least a +5 volt supply. This standby line is necessary to power the logic circuitry, particularly the microprocessor. In the full on mode (VCR power on), other voltages should be present in addition to the +5. You should see a +12-14 volt, (powers the capstan, video drum, & other motors if present, & possibly a supply for the LCD display of somewhere around -35 volts. A common cause for a non-working power supply in early VCRS ('80s & early '90s), such as Panasonic manufactured rigs, is defective electrolytic capacitors used to filter the above noted supplies, especially the in the +5 & +12 volt lines. Sometimes a capacitor in the primary side of the supply will go bad, causing the dead symptom. Obviously, a schematic is beneficial especially if you are a novice. If by chance bad electrolytics are the cause, and you wish to repair it, I'd suggest using capacitors designed for these switching power supplies, such as the Panasonic FC series available from Digi-Key and other suppliers. If by chance you do have one of these early rigs, these were excellent units. Most early VCRs were made like tanks, very unlike the "made to break" junkers of the last 10+ years.

VCR automatically goes into standby mode

If this unit shuts down after you turn it on, it is going into stanby because the microprocessor is not seeing the proper pulses from the mode switch. this could be due to an out of time mechanism because of a broken gear, bad mode switch, the loading basket is out of time or broken, or the capstain motor or the cylinlinder motor is not sending the PG and FG pulses to the microprocessor. These can also be due to a power supply voltage missing. You can check the voltages with a service manual and make sure they are not low. You will also need to get the mechanism manual and check the timing of the mechanism. Then check the mode switch you can get a manual from here Good Luck
