    The DSR-1500P starts up normally and all front indications are normal. however i carried ot the following experiment: I switched off the machine, loaded the tape in the cassette compartment manually (up to cassette compartment load end position). when i switched on the machine the tape guides took up the tape normally and I could play the tape normally. however when I eject the tape, it will not load it again(acts the same way as if the sensors are dead) except that i know that the sensors are ok!

There should be smoe indication on the front of a problem. If not, then the load sequence is not completing and the unit should be sent in for service. These are pro decks that should only be serviced by trained personnel. There are a number of reasons why a taoe would not load. Without seeing the unit, it is extremely dificult to determine the cause. Are there any other details you can provide that might help me to determine possible causes? Can you observe the loading to see how far it gets?

Thanks,
Dan

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

Error code 09-028


Servo and tape path system error.
0 : Mode cannot be identified, or mode identification is
not necessary.
2 : Threading motor/FG/sensor
8 : Abnormal current detected.

If it’s not just a simple tape jam, then you have a problem with the loading mechanism. The best solution is to take the deck to a service center.

The DSR11 will allow a tape to be loaded then it turns off. The tape loads and ejects OK but keeps powering off Any ideas?


since the tape loads, that rules out the cassette housing; the problem may be a defective reel motor, defective gear, defective tape sensor, etc.

The part number for the cassette assembly is A8312671F and it is around 500.00 NOT 200.00 as quoted in the article, and this price comes from the store that is reccommended in the article.

The service manual with the part numbers and prices is 9-977-696-22.

DSR 1500P problems loading tape


Are there any indications on the front panel at all? There should be an error code of some sort there. If not, I'll need to research this a bit. Please update this with any codes.

Jamed tape


This happens often in my business. Sony DSR is the most delicate cassette compartment out there. It also sounds like the unit is in auto off mode(electronic proublems as well). Please for your sake take this unit to Sony or some one qualified to repair this. You should expect replacement of the compartment and what ever damage occured while removing the tape. Parts for these decks are not cheap, If you had taken it to a service person with the tape stuck inside the monitary damage would far less. The one good thing is this is a consumer unit, if it where a DSR 1500 two models up it would pro and they share parts price for repair x3 across the board.

Sony DSR-45 Error Code C3140


C:31:40 is "FG fault when starting drum." In plain terms, the video head assembly is not producing a feedback signal that tells the control circuitry that the heads are spinning. Most probable cause is a bad drum assembly, but check to make sure the flex cable going to the drum is properly seated.
