Sony DHR-1000 problem

I have 2 Sony DHR-1000 vcr's with the same problem.

The recorders do not accept any tape's because they "say" there is a tape in the machine when there is not a tape loaded in.
I know that the problem is in the JC 13 board because i had the opertunity to change that board with a good working machine, and than it worked fine.
Sony is asking € 695.- for a new board ! so that's not an option.
I think it must be a standard problem because i have 2 machine's with the same problem someone told me it cold be a software problem in the JC13 board but i dont know if that is correct.
Can anyone tell me how to opload new software if thats possible in the JC13 board ?
I would be very glad if i could have them working again, any suggestions ?
Thanks in advance,
Willem, The netherlands

SOURCE: Pass Thru, Analog Signal Converter How-To

I wonder if this is a MacroVision problem. Try this; take a VCR tape that you have recorded from the tv, try to record a commercial and then play this tape through your setup, I bet you it works. (Now take what I say next in the sense that it is given and that is as advice)When you are trying to push signal that you get from an analog source from the VCR by law that signal has to be encoded with macrovision to ensure that the signal can not be copied. Now the funny thing is you can transfer tapes which have not been encoded this is normal, what you need is a piece of equipment that removes Macrovision, here is a link that might help: http://www.regioncodefreedvd.com/copyeliminator.html also look up the company SIMA

SOURCE: Sony PVW-2800 Beta SP Deck / Tape wont load - Error 20

Error 20 is "Cassette compartment motor lock" this is meaning the cassette loading mech is not accepting the tape It could be miss-aligned in it's position or one of the sensors is defective or the motor is bad

SOURCE: VCR keeps ejecting the tape

It needs Belts/Idler/Pinch roller.. If you UNPLUG IT, remove the cover you can wind the tape back manually....When you can get a DVD player.

SOURCE: VCR won't eject tape - timing of loading mechanism is off

Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep

SOURCE: VCR tape is stuck - will not rewind or eject.

There schould be a release buuton on the rear of the machine. It's usually recessed and may be difficult to see. Press this with the yip if a ballpoint pen and extract the tape. If the tape is wrapped around the record/playback heads your only option is to remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. Sounds difficult but if you take your time it's not too bad a job.

Testimonial: "Thank you! - no button - took the top off. I depressed a lever next to the tape switched the VCR back on and pressed the eject button - it worked!"

Unit will not come on after power outage, fuse is ok


I have just fixed one of these. The problem was C104 inside the metal shielded section of the PSU. It's a 2.2uF 50V capacitor. Sony used an 85?C version rather than a 105?C (which I've used).

The DHR-1000ux keeps blowing fuses


Blowing fuses are always an indication of a short circuit somewhere in the circuitry of you unit. Unfortunately, this will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the unit.

Sony DHR-1000


The timer/display control IC501, located on the FM 26 board (right behind the display tube) is likely bad.
the part number is 8-759-368-84.It will NOT be an easy part for an average consumer to replace. You would be better off looking for a complete FM 26 board A7066705A.

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.

VCR won't take tape


Is it ejecting the tape when you set up for timed record, or any record mode for that matter? If so, check for the presence of the record lockout tab in the tape. If tab is there, machine should accept it. If machine ejects tape with the tab present, then the sensor which detects tab present or absent is probably afoul. this sensor is often a small switch. This tab, by the way, is on the backside of the tape, on the left, looking at the tape from the back.
