    Then there is no reason, not to load cassette in camera mechanism.
    Please check some thing obstructing the tape to be loaded as it seems some mechanical issue.

    Check, does video head rotate when you close cassette compartment with tape-in.

Have an RCA VR618HF VCR. Have cleaned the head and roller. Have problem with inserting tape, unit shut after about 10 sec. and eats tape. Took top off to watch. Tape goes in, two arms strect the tape...


Before you insert the cartage. Look to see if the carriage is all the way back. If it not. The unit is out of sync. A gear has slipped a tooth some where. I don't about this particular model, some vcrs have a belt drive, Take the bottom off and see if there is a belt. It could be slipping or broke.

The tape carrage wont load the tapes but it will go into the load position without.


I have a sony cam myself. If the cam is empty, you open the outer door(swings out), and the load/unload mechanism rises up and pops open allowing tape insertion. When a cassette is placed into the mechanism, you press where it says "push" and then the drive pulls the tape down and into the unit. Then the outer door is closed and you're ready to tape. IF YOU PUSH DOWN ON THE TAPE WHILE IT'S BEING PULLED INTO THE UNIT IT WILL STRIP GEARS INSIDE. The gears are made of nylon to prevent serious damage to motors and other circuitry. This transport setup cannot be forced at all. If any type of mis-alignment occurs, the mechanism is supposed to stop and back up--allowing the problem to be corrected. If it is damaged, the cam must be repaired. There is critical timing involved in replacing the tape carriage.---Rick

The ink carrage keeps slamming the the left over and over.


Clean the semi clear strip that runs from right to left and goes through the carriage. This tells the carriage position by a very fine amount of lines. If cleaning the strip does not work then attempt to clean the reader unit on the carriage. Just use a qtip/cotton bud slightly moistened in metholated spirits or light cleaner like windex. If your printer does'nt have a strip like I explain then it's likely a switch at the end of the carriage runner.
Hope this helps

HP designjet 430, the data and media light come on at power up


The sad part unfortunatly is that the sensor on the carrage is below minimum specification. The only solution is to change the carrage as a unit P/N C4713-60039 and its going to be expensive. Normally the carrage belt would be replaced at the same time.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
