Question about Panasonic AJ-D250 DVCPRO DV/Mini DV VCR
Sometimes the picture kind of locks up and it stops playing. It also ate a tape. I think the deck has about 4000 hrs on it.
4000 hours is not bad for a clean machine that is fresh
they reset the drum and capstan run time meters when the machine is serviced: so you can have circuit boards that are getting tired.. The boards have lots of Surface Mount Electrolytic Can Capacitors... the parts used are rated for 3000 hours of use at 100 deg Celcius.. they last longer as the temperature goes down..
they have a chemical inside that dries up...
so the machine may need overhaul.
but an old tape can cause this, a worn & dirty pinch roller can cause this also...
