Panasonic nv-sv120 power shut down

Noticed my panasonic video (nv-sv120) player was showing all its display characters on the units small screen one day. I attempted to put in a video but it would not take it in. Then it suddenly shut down all power and it has not worked since. Could this just be a power pack failiure in the unit and where could i source a new one if so. Please also note that the top of the video player is completely covered with other electrical devices (stereo, speaker! and digi box) which i wonder wether cased the unit to fail. Plug fuse is ok.

I'v had exactly the same problem with my NV-SV120. After replacing C1250 and C1260 (1000µF-16v-105°) ... It worked again perfectly.

Re: panasonic nv-sv120 power shut down

There cannot be any reason pin pointed for a Electronics Equipment failure. But from your brief description, it seems that there has been an Electrical surge, which has probably blown the Fuse in the Power supply of the VCR. The various extra equipments placed on the machine are not in any way responsible. But, it is not adviseable to place these additional equipment on top of the machine. Remove them ASAP!

Casette is stuck in my panasonic nv-hd 680 vcr and display shows F4.Could anyone tell me how to solv it -please !!

I believe F4 means the mechanism is locking up when unloading the tape. You should look into the operation of the loading motor.

Panasonic NV-Fj620 What's youThe turns it self off a few seconds after being swithched on. Display shows F 04. Please advise what the fault is.r problem?

This deck uses the K-Mechanism. Which you can find information by searching the web for it. F04 means the mechaism is locking up whilst it's unloading. The solution is to look at the Load Motor and the timing of the drive to it.

My Panasonic NV-HD660 VCR is not unloading/ejecting a video cassette, in fact turns off itself and shows error message HO2, please help!

Yes the most likely cause is the mode switch, you can spray it with Servisol Video 40 or replace it. But you will need the service manual for that. The good news I think your model uses a K-Deck, and there is plenty on-line about the Panasonic K-Deck.

Panasonic NV-SJ205 Changing Rf ?

ok. This is a really easy one.
All you have to do is hold down the menu button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds, If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds. If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the actual vcr unit for 15 seconds. The first method should work for Panasonic's fine.
This will then display your current rf output.
You can then change the output by using the up and down arrows or the channel up and down button on your remote or the vcr unit.
Press menu button to save or the same button you used to bring up the rf opposition eg power button on remote or the unit.

all the best. Top tech

Has VCR to TV hookup been changed? Cabling errors will result in no display from the VCR (no tape video/audio, no menu display). If you are using the TV aux/VCR input connections, you must select this input before anything from the VCR will be displayed. If you've verified hookup is correct, then perhaps something is afoul with the VCR. Try hooking it up to another TV.
