Help!
Have not used use this VTR that much recently, has low hrs. and I'm attempting to transfer tapes which apparently have slack issues. 1st 2 of 5 tapes gave a slack warning. I had to take loading mechanism apart to remove tapes twice. Now tapes won't load and I get Error message 32-000 Tape End Sensor Error and going further into the diagnostic menus I also see S-Reel Error. Any suggestions would grreatly be appreciated.

These error codes point to possible problems with one or both reel motors.

Sony HVR-A1U "Reinsert Cassette" Error pops up frequently


I have had this error on my 3 year old Sony A1E and it has resulted in glitched picture and audio, despite not showing a poblem whilst recording. It came up with C:31:23 error. Start of the tape seemed ok and the end seemed to get pixellated. A friend said the PD170 had the same issue and had to have her tape heads changed. I've tried cleaning mine but problem still there. I'm looking at getting new NXCAM as I've spent a lot of money last year getting it fixed.

Sony UVW 1800 error code 02-403 - tape is out, code won't go away


Error 02-403 is "tape slack in ff/rew". Although you were able to get the tape out, the threading ring may not have returned to the unthread position. With the power disconnected and the top of the deck off, look at the mechanism; on the right side, there is a small gray motor with a black wheel in front of it. By turning this wheel, you will be able to make the threading ring turn; turn it so the ring goes clockwise. When the ring has gone as far as it can, it will be in its unthread position, and the deck will probably work normally.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view tape...no time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????


If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

Tape stuck in sony uvw-1800


02-874 error code signifies a defective takeup reel. The reel is not winding the tape in, so the deck won't go through the eject procedure. Check the connection to the takeup reel motor; if that's OK, the motor itself may be bad. Rarely, the takeup reel motor assembly will need to be replaced; usually it's a connection problem.

UVW-1800 SONY VTR - s-reel error


Both these error codes indicate a problem with the supply reel motor.
The first code (02-058) indicates that the reel motor is drawing too much current, which could be caused by a bad motor, defective driver circuit, or even a bad tape. The second code (02-803) indicates tape slack, caused by the defective supply reel motor. FIRST thing to check would be a possible bad tape. Try different tapes and see if the problem persists. If it does, it may be time to find a technician.
