Question about Panasonic AJ-D230H DV/Mini DV VCR
Be sure that whoever is replacing the elevator assembly ( transport module ) is putting in a NEW part and not an old part that is still works.
I would start doing this repair yourself... there are only:
2 cables: one that powers the cassette load\unload motor
and the other is the tape sensors cable
once you pull the cover
they are very small phillips head screws: you NEED a very good, long, small Magnetic tip screwdriver.
Tthere is a manual screw drive near the loader \ unloader motor: it has a Red plastic phillips head drive screw.
This manually moves the Loader assy in and out: you will need to move it to uncover the two screws that are near the front of the machine.
when you find these screws: its a good idea to mark them with a red Sharpie, for easy finding next time..
If the machine is getting heavy use, then 5 months may not be that bad, if the machine is babied should last alot longer.
either way you can get a handle on the situation and save youself some money by bringing this particular service 'In House'
I did this fix last week on this unit.
it took me 15 minutes.
