Question about Mitsubishi Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Mitsubishi HS-M58V(B) VHS recorder with a tape stuck inside. I'm not fused about the tape but would like some advise on removing it as the kids still have many tapes they watch from time to time. I have removed the lid for a quick look but not done anything else. Thank you

    Thank you very much for your advice, I have removed the duff tape now and will test the machine with another tape when I get home.
    If it plays up again I'll bin it!

Many of the older Mitsubishi machines suffered from the nylon tracks which are set into the metal becoming brittle and cracking with age there is not a lot that can be done with this problem and you may as well buy a new machine.another cause can be the mode switch becoming dirty and needs cleaning this is a rotary multi contact switch located under the mechanical deck.Hope this may be of help but the outcome is not good in any way.

Vintage VHS recorders can get quite messy. Probaly you need to take it to service. Presume it's time to convert your family tapes to DVD.

Plays for 3 secs, stops, and then ejects


This unit needs to have the "idler" changed as well as the belts. Over time, the internal rubber parts get hard ans slippery. There are safety checks inside that will stop the unit when problems are detected. With a slipppery idler assembly, the tape does not get wound into the cassette after passing the heads. Rather than have the tape collect inside and be destroyed, the unit stops. This is a relatively simple repair that any shop should be able to perform. Expect a parts cost in the $35 range. In my opinion, this unit is worth the repair as it will continue to provide service to you for years to come. New replacement units tend to last only a year or two.

E2 error


Just had the same E2 come up on my HSU-445. The only thing we could figure out was to try a different tape than the one that was in there when the error came up. That seemed to do the trick. Not sure how long that will work. Good luck.

Error message E4 and stuck tape


Yes with care. Simply remove the cover and with care unwrap the tape. If you must break the tape - but make sure all residual tape is cleanly removed. Re assemble and put a tape head cleaner through- following the instructions.
