Error "04" on display & tape won't eject

I got this deck 2nd hand (or maybe even 3rd) and don't have a manual. I was playing a tape tonight and suddenly it stopped. The LED display only shows an "04" (without the quotes, of course) and I can't eject the tape. I unplugged the deck for 10-min (which was suggested to somebody else who was having tape-eject problems) but obviously I'd like to solve the problem itself (the reason it held the tape and stopped playing) and not just the symptom (the fact that it held the tape) Can someone tell me what error "04" is? I'm assuming that's an error code. If I'm off base there, let me know.

Error 04 is a reel servo error. The micro in the deck cannot control the motors that pull the tape past the heads. I've seen bad reel motors, bad reel servo boards, bad cables, or even a bad tape cause this problem. _Most likely_ is a bad reel motor.

You have bad capacitors in your power supply. i would suggest you take your unit to a good shop in your area and request a power supply re-build and mode switch cleaning.

tape is probably caught in the reels, you might have to force it out of the deck, i forced mine out with my eyebrow tweezers, the tape was obviously ruined cause it ripped, but better the tape than the deck...

I put a tape in and it keeps flipping sides without playing and pops out and says Error. It even does it with a CD-Cassette Adapter. Before the Cln came up and I pressed on the eject button and that...


Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

Combi TV/VCR When video tape is inserted TV immediately goes onto "emergency mode" and won't play the tape. Sometimes ejects it str away. TV was 2nd hand so I don't have a manual for it.


The Video portion of the set requires a belt and possibly a drive pulley.
When the tape is inserted, the deck moves it forward then back and if it can't because it has lost its drive due to a belt broken stops dead. Hence "Emmegency mode".

Can't eject tape from deck


On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape - disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...

greetings from berlin, matt.

I just found this post on another site :
tsvservice- 29th Jun 2007 14:0109-221 is "failure to complete threading within the specified time". in plain talk, the mechanism in the deck that threads the tape around the heads is not working. this could be a bad motor, bad gear, or even a bad tape.
