Question about Sony DSR-11 DV / Mini DV VCR

I replaced the jc-20 board on a dsr-11 but the firewire still does not work. Is there another component somewhere that needs to be changed?

    We already replaced the firewire port but still it can not be detected by Final Cut Pro. We tried to replaced the JC-20 board and it works. Another problem is the malfunction of it's loading mechanism. The tape can not be threaded properly and there's a tendency that the tape wind up improperly during threading. We know that it is not a mechanical problem of the unit. The capstan is also clean and the mechanism is aligned. We tried to replace the defective jc-20 board with a good one and it is OK. Is the problem caused by the defective JC-20 board? Is there a workaround for this two problems? You know JC-20 board is so expensive and I'm very worried because we have 10 units of DV Decks and they're all quite old.
    Is there anybody out there who can tell us the cheapiest solution of the problems? Your help will be highly appreciated.

My DSR 45 Firewire port is fried. Any idea which Problem with the Sony DSR-45 Mini DV VCR


DSR-45's firewire port is held on a separate littlle circuit board, easily reached from the underside of the deck. Remove the bottom panel, unplug the cable from the Firewire board and there is 1 screw to hold the firewire board in place. The part is called DV-032 on Sony's Parts website and costs about £30 UK including postage to buy.

Transfer from DSR-11 to iMAC firewire 800 to use final cut?


You need a Firewire 800-400 adapter, among other sources you can get one from OtherWorld Computing for about $10.00: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Newer%20Technology/FIR1369AD/

DSR-1500 firewire port doesn't work. Any


It may be that the firewire cable has been inserted the wrong way round. Unfortunately this is a common problem as it is quite easy to do this especially when fumbling around with limited access behind the deck. Worst case scenario is that the Firewire circuit board has been fried! Firewire connection carries 30 volts, and if this connect to the wrong pins - pop goes the board. It's a £300 job to fix (I think). But first of all try pairing down any patching / connection to other equipement to a minimum to ensure that there is not something else in the chain that could be causing the problem.

Sony DSR-11 fire wire not working


When you say AVI, I'm assuming you mean the standard audio/video.

Unfortunately these decks are prone to eat their firewire chip. There aren't many options besides send it back to Sony and pay $500.

DSR-11 stopped outputting anything


I have almost the same problem!  Did you ever figure out what happened?  Here's what I had posted yesterday:
Tech Friends - 
I recently got a non-sony tape stuck in my DSR-11 (bummer) and was forced to extricate it using the "my tape got stuck in the DSR - 11" article's method of removing the top cover and highest level of circuit board:  
http://www.fixya.com/support/t178954-tape_stuck_inside

This worked for the tape removal, however, upon replacing the circuit board and cover, the deck no longer seems to be able to do anything with video or audio.  It still communicates with FCP via its firewire connection (ie FCP is able to control FF, rewind, play functions, etc), but it seems unable to read or write video.  Also, we use it as an A - D converter box between a Beta SP deck and thecomputer (actually, this is the deck's main function here).  Even when I switch it to the correct setting (video) and check to make sure that everything is plugged in correctly (trust me, I checked, it is), I get the "there is no video here" error message. 
Also, after trouble shooting the drive for a little while, I pressed the "reset" button the the rear.  I'm not sure if that matters one way or the other.  I don't think it does (that just resets the time code, right?) 
The question is, would this be a case of "fried firewire jack" such as it seems so many of us DSR - 11 owners have?  Could I have done any frying myself by not having myself properly grounded when opening the shell?  Is there anyone who knows the answer?  Help!  I can't digitize my video!
Comment by eltriunfo, posted on Sep 05, 2008 The Plot Thickens... 
Okay, I've checked all of the FCP settings and played with the deck more and it's only confused me more.  I can now get it to not only be controlled by the computer, but actually print audio and video to mini dv tape.  Also, I can record from my Beta SP deck to miniDV tape in the deck (connected through the "video" input on the rear of the unit).  In other words, the deck seems to function perfectly doing everything except for converting analogue to digital passively.  The way we always did it before was by keeping the input switch on the face of the unit on "video" and log and capturing in FCP with it as a noncontrolable ntsc device.  This makes me understand it less.  It means to me that it is not a broken switch, it's not a broken firewire port, everything works perfectly EXCEPT for using the unit as an A-D converter.  What the dill-yo?  If anyone in the world could offer any insight as to what could be causing this I would greatly appreciate it!

Can't eject tape that was just put in.


Your DC to DC converter start up with protection,It been disteract with something,you don`t have a part of power supply. If you have another DCR 11 you can change board JC 12. I think that is the problem. Good luck!

Sony DSR-11 Will Not Recognize Timecode


I think you may have misconfigured something because the problem is not in your DSR-11 try connecting it to a monitor and you will see the time stamp and picture as proof of what I am saying. The problem I think is that your Mac is not processing the time stamp correctly.
