You appear to have a K Mech model. F06 is the code for the mechanism locking after unload. The cause being something to do with the loading motor or the way the carriage is aligned.

I have a VCR Panasonic NV - FJ623 and when I insert a video cassette into it for playback or recording purposes,it always ejects the video cassette.Can you help, please?


I'ts likely that the record sensor that pushes on the tab on the tape is bent or broken. Making the VCR think you are trying to record on to a protected tape.

You can purchase a VCR cleaning tape that will do the job. However the best way is to buy a can of Servisol Video 40 (small one will do and it will last a long time) then remove the top cover of the VCR. Spray the VCR heads. Shinny Silver things and any moving parts that the tape touches. If your not certain what to clean, with the cover off insert a tape and press play. Remove the tape and spray small amounts on the surfaces. If you can see a lot of dust you can wipe the heads etc with a cotton bud. A VCR housed in a smokers house will need extra work to get it clean. Once dry you can test a tape. If you see flecks or spots the VCR will need further cleaning.

I have a panasonic nv-hd640 i can't eject tape, when i try to eject give me a error f06 and turn off the video thank you


You have a K-Deck model there's lots of information on the net about these so check it out.
Meanwhile F06 means that the mechanism is locking up (getting stuck) after unloading the tape. The cause of which is either something to do with the loading motor or the carriage (where the tape fits) alignment.
Just type "Panasonic K-Deck Mechansim" into Google for the information.

VCR Model Panasonic NV-J45:- Until just yesterday, it worked fine, only last night I tried to play a tape, the green auto-tracking light flashed a few times as usual, then the tape just kept stopping, no...


The problem is caused by the idler assembly which controls play, record, rewind, and fast forward. If the take up reel stops, the vcr senses a problem and will stop the tape. The only other thing it can be is the drive belt, sometimes it will stretch and fall off or break. I suggest a tv technician or somebody that knows their way around a machine.

Hi F06 appear on screen;cant eject cassette


You have what's called a Panasonic K-Deck machine. That code means the Mechanism locks after unloading the tape. The cause of this could either be the 'carriage' where the tape fits, or the Load Motor. Plenty of free information on line just type "Panasonic K-Deck" into Google.

I'm getting nothing but snow when I press play on my VCR. Everything is plugged in, the sound comes through clearly but no picture. Any ideas?


It sounds like you have a dirty video head, you can try a wet or dry cleaning tape, I recommend a dry tape because it is easier on the head. The second option is run a brand new T120 tape and set the speed at sp (2hrs) let it run the full time.

Panasonic NV HD630 is showing error f06 when the eject button is pressed. The tape cassette seems to be locked in and does not rise. I have removed the top. The tape is withdrawn back to the cassette....


You have a K-Deck mechanism. F06 means the mechanism locks after unload. The cause of this is the load motor or the carriage alignment.
If you enter "Panasonic K-Deck" into google you should find service information and a guide to getting the tape out - all free!

Panasonic NV-SD236B VCR Error code "F 06" Whats the problem? Tape will not eject.


You appear to have a model that uses the K-Deck Chassis. If you enter "Panasonic K-Deck Chassis" into google you will find loads of service information on it.
However back to your problem F06 means the mechanism is locking up after unloading. The cause of which could be either the Load Motor or a problem with the Carriage (where the tape goes) and it's alignment.

VCR Tape Stuck


Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
