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.

Where does USB from DVC Pro deck to into Mac hard drive?


AJ-D230H doesn't have a USB connection. A firewire interface is an option, but they're very hard to find; have been discontinued by Panasonic.

My Panasonic AJD230 is spitting out some but not all, tapes


The capacitors are old and need replacing. And what I mean by caps is ALL the caps. These decks are known for failing capacitors - even if the deck hasn't logged much play/record time - time is not kind to them. Panasonic have ready made capacitor sets for the decks and even though you might be able to fix your transport problems by replacing only a portion of them, it's advised they all get done at once. That's between 10-20 hours for an experienced tech and it will cost you. What can you do?

Tape deck no longer plays large DVCpro tapes


the tape compartment elevator has switch senors that tell the machine what size tape is in..

does the tape load all the way.. you need to tell us
is there an error code ?

either the sensor or the reel motors the feed and uptake the tape,,
they ride on rails and slide into position to accomodate the tape side they could be having trouble moving, dirty, broken actuator

Where do I get a list of Panasonic DVC Pro Tape Deck Error Codes?


The operators manual has most of the codes; however, there are error codes that can arise that are not listed in the manual.

I personally have encountered this: I was able to get answers fro panasonic online once.... But had trouble getting consistant web support.



Here I uploaded my SD 255 operators manual to my yahoo folder
http://ca.geocities.com/artiedc/SD255man.pdf

the codes are the same as the 230

I am getting set up to do complete service on these machines
lista
i have done complete refurbs recently,,
I use an electronics assy house to replace all of the capacitors on the set of boards in the unit and have experience replacing head cylinders, capstan, ejector motors, brakes, etc..

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.

if you are interested in my services I am Ed

It acts like the heads are dirty but they have been cleaned


4000 hours is not bad for a clean machine that is fresh

they reset the drum and capstan run time meters when the machine is serviced: so you can have circuit boards that are getting tired.. The boards have lots of Surface Mount Electrolytic Can Capacitors... the parts used are rated for 3000 hours of use at 100 deg Celcius.. they last longer as the temperature goes down..

they have a chemical inside that dries up...

so the machine may need overhaul.

but an old tape can cause this, a worn & dirty pinch roller can cause this also...

Tape format playback for AJ-D250


menu item 107 can be used to select dv playback

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Audio Problem with Firewire


The input select switch on the front of the AJ-D230H needs to be in the "OPTION" position, not "LINE". That may help if all the other settings are correct. You will also have to make sure that you have selected the right codecs for the deck that you are using in the software. I am speaking as a Final Cut Pro user so only offer this as a suggestion as these are the things that work from out of Final Cut.

Good luck. It can be very frustrating, but awesome when it all comes together and works right!!!

Error Codes E-2, E-41, E-61


If you're experienced in capacitor replacement, check the capacitors on the mechanical interface board. When these caps fail, you get mechanical errors like you described. I generally replace all the capacitors on this board as a precaution; I've never had a callback when I replace them all.
