When attempting to load a tape into the AG-DV2000, the cassette door does not open and the display reads F07.
i had the same issue with my ag-dv2000, a fun problem to solve without a service manual. first verify we are dealing with the same issue.first open hopper fully and apply power. you should get an f06 error(failure to close in required time), now close hopper and apply power, you should get a f07 error (failure to open in required time). if this is the case the bad part is the motor drive ic. ic 1 on the motor drive board mounted to bottom of dv mech. it is a 10 pin ic labeled xra6887. i have not located a source yet but you can confirm the chip is bad by replacing it with ic6502 on the same board. if you put the bad chip in place of ic 6502 you will ground power supply and will not have power, leave it out. it controls threading motor, not needed to verify problem. the door should work now. dont put in a tape untill you replace bad chip. if you find the panasonic part number for this part please post it. happy desoldering!
