Tape format playback for AJ-D250

Can the Panasonic AJ-D250 mini deck be set to play a regular DV186 tape? DVC Pro tapes are no porblem, but I did not know if the menu setting could be changed to play DV. The deck's manual is with our engineers, and they are out today.

Where does USB from DVC Pro deck to into Mac hard drive?


AJ-D230H doesn't have a USB connection. A firewire interface is an option, but they're very hard to find; have been discontinued by Panasonic.

My Panasonic AJD230 is spitting out some but not all, tapes


The capacitors are old and need replacing. And what I mean by caps is ALL the caps. These decks are known for failing capacitors - even if the deck hasn't logged much play/record time - time is not kind to them. Panasonic have ready made capacitor sets for the decks and even though you might be able to fix your transport problems by replacing only a portion of them, it's advised they all get done at once. That's between 10-20 hours for an experienced tech and it will cost you. What can you do?

Where do I get a list of Panasonic DVC Pro Tape Deck Error Codes?


The operators manual has most of the codes; however, there are error codes that can arise that are not listed in the manual.

I personally have encountered this: I was able to get answers fro panasonic online once.... But had trouble getting consistant web support.



Here I uploaded my SD 255 operators manual to my yahoo folder
http://ca.geocities.com/artiedc/SD255man.pdf

the codes are the same as the 230

It acts like the heads are dirty but they have been cleaned


4000 hours is not bad for a clean machine that is fresh

they reset the drum and capstan run time meters when the machine is serviced: so you can have circuit boards that are getting tired.. The boards have lots of Surface Mount Electrolytic Can Capacitors... the parts used are rated for 3000 hours of use at 100 deg Celcius.. they last longer as the temperature goes down..

they have a chemical inside that dries up...

so the machine may need overhaul.

but an old tape can cause this, a worn & dirty pinch roller can cause this also...

AJ-D250 PANASONIC E-62 PROBLEM


E-62 error on AJ-D250 points to a cassette housing problem. either replace the cassette housing or have it rebuilt (replace gears on the sides that raise and lower the cassette). "replace belts" won't work - the AJ-D250 doesn't have any belts.

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.

Audio Problem with Firewire


The input select switch on the front of the AJ-D230H needs to be in the "OPTION" position, not "LINE". That may help if all the other settings are correct. You will also have to make sure that you have selected the right codecs for the deck that you are using in the software. I am speaking as a Final Cut Pro user so only offer this as a suggestion as these are the things that work from out of Final Cut.

Good luck. It can be very frustrating, but awesome when it all comes together and works right!!!
