My husband was able to fix the problem. It turns out that the sensor switch was jammed. He used a piece of duct tape to block the signal while putting in a tape. The tape went in and still worked after he removed the duct tape. I have recorded and played a tape, so all is well right now.

get a quality carboard box slightly bigger than the unit
wrap the unit in plastic
place a later of foam chips in tye bottom of the box
put in the unit and fill allaround and over the top with the foam chips
seal off with duct tape
Foam chips or the like can be got from removalists
a lesser product is to wrap securely in bubble wrap before placing in the card board box

Red light blinking won't accept tape


If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off


look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

The tape wont come out and i get the message unit is safeguard mode. How can I eject the mini dv tape


Ok, if the unit is in safeguard mode it thinks it has been dropped. since it is giving the message it is getting through the boot sequence to that so you are close to the answer. taking out the batery and attempting to turn it on will reset the sensor. then replacing a fresh battery will get you to a place where an undamaged unit will ejct the tape. A damaged tape mechanism will still not functin and you will need a VCR service place to replace the drive mechanism to get it going (Broken drive belt is causing the lockdown.

My panasonic dvx 100b is from 2004. it's always worked great but now when I put in a new tape the first 5 minutes or so the audio does not record consistantly. It drops out over and over then its fine.


HELLO!
this camcorder needs some adjustments in the mechanism,the drop outs in the beggining of tape shows that tape tension is unstable in the begin of tape.The mech unit if its cleaned and drops continues must be replaced,this unit is not easy to adjust..very small parts,TAKE UP T2 POST ROLLER NEEDS ALIGNMENT Attention.
