Sony EVO 9850 error messages

When I load a tape and hit play I get an error 20. I cant get it to play. I tried what the other post suggested and no luck. Now I am getting an error 90 as soon as I power up.
This was a great machine and is in great condition  except it doesnt work :).
I would like to fix it so I can dump all my Hi 8 footage to a drive and then I plan to sell it.
Any ideas about where I can get the deck at a resonable rate? I am in the SF bay area.
Thank you Aarin

Tape loads into Sony DsR1500P but will not play or rewind/fast forward. No error code shown. Time code does not turn over.


Dear
Please play a head cleaning cassette and after using it for few seconds then play a normal tape.

Then it will show the picture.

Sony evo 9850 error code 20


From what i've read an Error-20 on a Sony BSP deck is a tape transport problem. Someone with the same error code (on a BSP model) said the actual tape loading mechanism was bad and they had to replace the hardware inside the machine that loads and ejects the cassette.

What is an error 20 message on a Sony VO 9850?


Remove the bottom cover and flip the circuit board out of the way.
Check to see that the capstan drive belt is not loose or broken.
Also, open the top cover and check the drive belt for the cassette transport.

Loads tape then stops - won't play rewind fast


Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

F11 error message in ag dv2700 during play.


Hi,

I've been working for hours on this machine, cleaning and lubricating the mechanism and trying various adjustments to fix related problems. If I recall correctly the F11 error is due to tape mistracking, indicating damage to same. Someone posted a suggestion that the F08 error indicated a drum relay problem, requiring professional servicing; but it also comes up on my machine if the tape tension is too high and the mechanism cannot overcome it when loading the tape. I only realised this after finally tracking down pretty well all of the bearings needing lubrication; then adjustments to the tape tension could be detected. I've got to the stage that my AG-DV2700 will accept tapes that have been recorded on that machine; playing them instantly, after the usual auto tape tensioning where the tape is FF a few seconds and then RW a similar amount, if the safety shutter is enagaged; and merely accepting them in the normal fashion otherwise. Up until this point it would throw up the F08 error whatever tape was put in; if you switched the recorder back on instantly the tape would slow FF, ie not its usual whirlwind winding, and be available for use after auto rewind at the end. If a tape NOT recorded on it is put in it still stops with the F08 error. I would suggest that trouble with this recorder is likely due the loading mechanism becoming stiff. All you have to do is dismantle it - but there's lots of tricky bits and bobs in there to watch out for.

Error 20 is "Cassette compartment motor lock" this is meaning the cassette loading mech is not accepting the tape It could be miss-aligned in it's position or one of the sensors is defective or the motor is bad

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
