Sony VO5850 VCR playback is B&W


This is usually the first indication that the head drum assembly needs attention. Usually, the circuit that controls the speed of the heads is not able to keep the speed constant. This creates noise in the signal that causes the loss of color. The circuit in question here is the servo. This is often fixed by replacing the capacitors in that circuit (there are usually 3). Simple fix with a parts cost of around $6 or so.

No picture


I assume this symptom appears when attempting to play a tape? If the picture is mostly snow, VCR may need video head cleaning. To do this, take the top cover off- You will note a cylindrical shiny aluminum drum- the actual heads are at the lower edge of this rotating drum.

Anyway, use a lint free cloth or special wipe moistened with rubbing alcohol, or product specifically made for such, carefully cleaning those heads as well as the drum itself. Occasionally, it may take 2 or 3 cleanings.

If the VCR has lots of hours, or abrasive head cleaners have been used, the head could be worn out. If so, toss the rig and purchase a new one. Head replacement is non-economical unless you have a high end machine.

Head Hours


Nope it's in the user menu and you have to have video going into the deck to read it on the monitor video out put. Head hours are the time the tape actually is in contact with the drum and the most accutate easy indication of drum ware. 3/4 Umatics don't eat heads as a rule. I think I only replaced 1 out of hundred for thousands and thousands decks. Brokers love head or durm hours tipically it's T2 on the menu.

VCR Play Back is OK, but Recording produces Blue Screen on playback


If the heads are TOO dirty, a head cleaner will not help. If you are cinfident enough to open up the recorder, then they can be cleaned manually.

Disconnect the VCR from the mains.

Remove the screews from the side and back (if applicable) of the lid.

Remove the lid.

Look at the large drum (set at a slight angle) If you gently rotate the drum you will see 2 or 4 small sensors set into the drum.

Tear of a clean piece of A4 paper about 1inch square.

Hold between thumb and first finger and rub the centre of the paper against each sensor in turn. Make sure the edge of the paper does not catch the sensor.

After each sensor check the paper for dirt (black marks) and change paper if need be.

Try a recording / playback.

Repeat if necessary.

Sony DSR-45 Error Code C3140


C:31:40 is "FG fault when starting drum." In plain terms, the video head assembly is not producing a feedback signal that tells the control circuitry that the heads are spinning. Most probable cause is a bad drum assembly, but check to make sure the flex cable going to the drum is properly seated.
