Question about Panasonic AG-DV2000 Mini DV VCR

2 Answers

Stuck tape I have a AG-DV2000 I bought new some years ago. For the first time a full size DV cassette jammed when inserted. I removed the top of the unit. How to Remove the jammed tape is not obvious. I don't want to remove or dissasemble more than necessary. Anyone have experience removing a jammed full size DV cassette? Thanks in advance for the help. Bob71913

You can try to get the tape out by unplugging the unit and connecting a 9 volt battery to the motor on the left side of the cassette housing. Try both polarities to operate the motor; this will eject our tape unless the cassette housing has a broken or jammed link. I've been able to get the majority of stuck tapes out of the AG-DV2000 this way.

If you haven't already done so, don't get overly forceful to avoid bending or breaking something. Often the cassette carriage mechanism is gear driven, and by moving the gear one direction or the other will unload the tape. You may need to disassemble the machine further to gain access to the drive mechanisim. Sometimes the carriage mech. can be entirely removed from the VCR by removing the attachment screws. Other times, these screws are made inaccessible by the tape itself. Look down on the right side of the carriage. If you do remove the carriage, mark the gear positioning first! as the gears must be positioned back exactly as they were from the manufacturer. You might need to employ the services of a technician if things are complicated.

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!

AG-DV2000 output is black & white only -- no color?


I fixed it! It was a menu option that could only be changed using the remote. (I never use the remote)

Q: Why did it change from color to black & white to begin with?

A: Maybe when I unplugged the unit to move it after 8 years of being in the same place.

Error F03


F03 is a loading mechanism error. look for something obstructing the loading arms in the mechanism - a label from a tape, a piece from a broken cassette, etc.

Panasonic AG-DV2000 Mini DV loading problem


the "dv sensor"is actually a mechanical lever built into the cassette housing that moves the reel tables to match the reel spacing on mini or full-size DV tapes. check to see if this assembly is free to move. if it binds up, the reel tables may not move as far as they need to, and can cause problems similar to the one you're seeing. to inspect the mechanism, you need to remove the cassette housing. if you don't have a service manual, get a tech to help -- it's a delicate procedure for the inexperienced.
