Question about Panasonic AG-DV2500 DV/Mini DV VCR

1 Answer

Can the Panasonic AG-DV2500 play 90 minutes Minidv tapes?

I use the DV2500 to record videos from minidv tapes on my computer, using QT Pro. I never had problem doing it until recently. What happened is that when I put the tape in the DV2500 and press play, it stopped after only 2-3 seconds. On the screen, I get the message that the recording has stopped because the video has come to its end, which is not true. I believe these tapes (Fujifilm DVM60 60/90) were set up by our camera to record 90 minutes, instead of 60. With another tape deck, I've been able to read these tapes without any problem. And when I use any other tapes with the DV2500, believed to be 60-minutes tapes, everything works fine. My conclusion: the DV2500 has problem with 90-minutes tapes. Is it the case? Thanks.

    Thanks for your comment, it seems to confirm my observations. Do you know if this is written somewhere, like in the owner manual or on Panasonic's website?

The DV2500 will not play LP (90 minute) tapes. when an LP tape is inserted, it will play for 2-3 seconds, and then eject.

Error F03


F03 is a loading mechanism error. look for something obstructing the loading arms in the mechanism - a label from a tape, a piece from a broken cassette, etc.

You have signalling errors that come from, more than likely, a bad ribbon cable linking the mechanism to the CPU. Good luck on this as it is a service headache.

Digital jitter during playback


The random audio/video breakup sounds like a tape path alignment issue. Best done by a repair shop.

Is there lp playback?


no - only sp tapes. if you try an lp tape, it plays for about 2 seconds, then the deck ejects it.

the "dv sensor"is actually a mechanical lever built into the cassette housing that moves the reel tables to match the reel spacing on mini or full-size DV tapes. check to see if this assembly is free to move. if it binds up, the reel tables may not move as far as they need to, and can cause problems similar to the one you're seeing. to inspect the mechanism, you need to remove the cassette housing. if you don't have a service manual, get a tech to help -- it's a delicate procedure for the inexperienced.
