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

Re: Sony SLV-660HF

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.

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.

My tape was stuck in the unit, managed to free it up and noe I have an erro code of E3 on the LED screen, what does this mean?

First you must make sure you got all of the video tape out of the unit. Unplug your unit from power and check for any remaining tape. Any small piece of tape could jam your unit and give you error code E3. Once you know you removed all tape leave your unit unplugged for 5 minutes to see if it clears up the error code. E3 is a drum rotation error code and usually clears after plugging the unit back into the power. If this did not help then further repair will be necessary.

I hope this helped you out! Good Luck!

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.
