This mechanism was shared by a number of jvc models and works great til it stops. It has been my experience that most often the entire mechanism is cheap enough it becomes the prefered method for repair. This of course is a shop repair issue. Time is more costly than the part. Entire repair about $150.00. Good luck, magic seadog

Put new ink in printer. got the message "carriage jam" checked ink to see if correctly installed...it was. tried to use it again and same message appeared. Did as was instructed on Kodak...


Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

F 04 - Tape stuck in recorder


F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading. You need to check the Load motor and it's timing.
You have by the way a K Mech model. This will help you find parts and other information on the mechanism.

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed


Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

You can press play and pause, but then you can't press down rec. help.


Is the erasure prevention tab missing from a commercial or previously recorded cassette? It would leave a little (about 1/8" square) hole in the spine edge of the cassette shell. That tab is there to prevent accidental erasure by allowing a small sensor lever to drop in and mechanically disable the recording mechanism. Compare a commercial cassette with a brand new blank one. You can place a piece of adhesive tape on the casette to allow recording, but take care to NOT cover more than the first 1/8" of the opening if it is larger as the recorder also senses tape type by the length of the hole molded into the cassette.
Word to the wise - don't scrimp on the tape if the recording matters to you. Spend a bit extra for better tapes. Store the tapes 'played', avoid fast forwarding and rewinding unless you'll be playing them through to wrap the tape uniformly before storing it INSIDE its tape box. Read the other warnings that come with the media. No heat, moisture, dust, blah-blah.

The tapes In my Panasonic PV-GS14 are stuck and won't run


you cannot move the spindles/cogs in a mini dv tape without pressing down a small lever on the rear of the cassette.
the lever is in the lower right, move the lever, then move the ribbon protector to the open position, then spin the cogs, the tape should be free.
if not, then you have a jamm inside the cassette, you can open these casettes by removing 4 small screws. ( this is a very fiddly job & you may ruin the casette, if you dont know how )
