Question about Sony SLV-660HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

Sony SLV-660HF I had a eject problem and took the unit apart to try to fix it. In putting it back together I now have a Jack "6J97" that I don't know where it goes. It fits into an long piece but I can't determine where the long piece goes into the board. Can anyone help me? Bill

    Thanks for the help. Ifound out where the connector goes. The connector is on a black & white wire that runs from the electronics circuit board to the mechanism board with a connector on each end the connectorthat I was referring to plugs into a black piece about 1 inch long which slides into a white plastic piece on the right, after part, of the transport mechanism board. the piece looks like some type of a switch I can see a coil inside and on one side it has a shiny surface. I believe it must operate when the mechanics passes it but I am not sure. At this time I am just learning about the unit. Now That I found where the connector goes I am ready to continue putting the unit back together. Thanks again.

Hmmm... it would be great to have a schematic, or a personal peek at the VCR. I assume by jack, you have a connector of some sorts with no visible place to go. There are connectors present on both the printed circuit board(s), and on the mechanical section. On the mechanical, there will be connections (in some cases a thin ribbon cable, other times a multi-wire male or female connector) to the video drum assembly, audio/control head, capstan motor, spindle (reels) sensors, and often, carriage sensors. On older VCRs especially, there are multiple circuit boards, many of which have wired connectors as you describe. These same machines will have connections going to the power supply. I wish I could be more specific for you. If you could send me a of the "long piece" pic @ it might help. Hope giving out my email address is cool.

I took my car seat apart to wash it and I don't know how to put it back together

We would advise you contact the manufacturer of the carseat as the likelihood is that the unit will need to be sent to specialist engineers to inspect and put back together correctly. Due to safety implications of the harness being incorrectly fitted it may not be possible to do this yourself.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one will no

Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

Will I be able to convert from VHS format to DVD using the SLV-660HF assuming I have the converter cable and software?

Don't see why not. Search E-Buyer.Com for something called Videomate C100 Video Audio Capture Card, that will set you on the right track to record on to DVD, software included to make DVD's.

Eject tray belt broke

Opening the DVD player tray is not as hard as you would think.

1. Remove three black screws holding the outer cover on the unit (located on rear of unit)

2. Carefully remove front panel trim by gently prying six clips (3 on top, 3 on bottom) away from unit and pulling panel away from unit.

3. Locate opening at the front of the DVD player that houses a larger white gear.

4. Using a finger, gently move gear until DVD tray begins to move outward.

5. Continue until DVD is fully ejected.

6. Try plugging the unit back into AC outlet and attempt to Open/Close the tray using the provided button on the Front Panel Circuit Board.

7. Reverse steps above to put unit back together.

SLV-660HV Will not load

If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
