Have a samsung DVD-V1000 VCR/DVD combo unit. DVD player works fine. been experiencing gradual decline of the VCR and now it won't play at all. will **** tape into the machine but can't get it out. any...


Always frustrating when a videotape gets stuck in a failing/failed VCR deck. Since all decks use a loading motor and gear system, it would be a simple matter of gaining access to the terminal pins of the loading motor (assuming you can see these from the top of the deck) and applying 9V DC voltage to 'unwind' the loading mechanism - you may get a little bit of tape outside of the cassette, but at least it's ejected. If the DVD deck works as you say, you may be able to continue using this for a while.

If the loading assembly is toward the underside of the main deck, you may need to remove the entire VCR mechanism - then you can apply the 9V to the motor to unwind the gear (it is easier to apply a low voltage to the deck rather than use physical force to unwind gears - as you may damage them) - while leaving the DVD deck in the unit untouched. There should be 2 separate mechanisms in this combo - 1 being for DVD the other being for VCR - as long as you are careful when removing the VCR deck, you should have no problem retrieving your tape (with maybe a little creasing but otherwise undamaged) from it. Be careful when removing the top cover and front panel assembly; you don't want anything broken.

Since VCRs are becoming obsolete these days, it is hardly worth getting this one repaired by any service centre (unless you want to pay a fortune, which is usually more than the retail price of a new combo unit). It's up to you.

NOTE: you cannot operate this unit with the VCR deck disconnected from the motherboard (you will get an annoying error display with the VCR removed). Once you have successfully removed your tape from it, reconnect the VCR mechanism to the board - but do not use it - just use the DVD part if that is still OK. Refit the covers, plug machine into power. Done!

You need a lot of patience to undertake the abovementioned action. Fingers crossed.

Have Panasonic omnivision VHS PV-D4743S-k 4 head Hi Fi stereo and am having problems setting the timer. Could you help please?

To set record DATE,
press
to select:
1~31= one time, or
DAILY= MON~ FRI, or
WEEKLY= same time
each week and
press SET.

To set remaining items,
press
to select and

The “Timer” Indicator lights up on DECK.
• You can do Timer Recording with the power on or off.
• “TIMER REC WILL START SOON” appears on-screen for 2 minutes
before Timer Recording starts. If DECK is in DVD mode, no message
appears, but the VCR REC Indicator, the VCR mode indicator and
“REC” will flash on Multi function Display.

Hope this helps!

VCR tape loads and runs about 5-10 sec; then ejects


you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

Panasonic DMR-EZ47V Error Code F03


I saw this same issue. I would unplug and plug in the DVD and it would still show error code F03.

It turns out that one of my kids had shoved a couple of small objects inside the VHS opening and it was blocking the operation. I removed the objects and it works fine.

This error code is not listed in the manual that came with the DVD player.

Try resetting the unit. Push and hold the on/off button for 10+ seconds. --or-- Look for a reset button behind the drop down door, and gently depress it with a pen point for a couple of seconds. If this does not work, try calling Panasonic.

Error Code F03


What worked for us when we saw F03? Taking the toothbrush out of the VCR! I kept resetting the unit and nothing worked. Finally, I decided to see what would happen if I stuck a tape in. It wouldn't go in because of the toothbrush! I took it out, reset the unit again and it was fixed.

Maybe the error is not F03, but FO3 meaning there is a FOREIGN OBJECT stuck in the VCR.

VHS will not eject tape


So open up the casing and retrieve the tape. I have done it a few times and it is not hard. Not sure if fixing it is worth it. I just buy a new one for cheap.
