Question about JVC BR-S822DXU VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
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.
