Tape hanging up and will not record.

Insert tape, it expands internally as designed, but then tape will come back and will not record. When trying to eject tape, it hangs up internally on components and have to work manually to release tape for removal.

There is a threading arm that has gummed up inside the unit. I suspect that the tape is not being loaded correctly. This is a common problem with the Sony units and requires the removal of that loading arm to remove gummed up grease. Once that is completed, the unit will function correctly. Please note that the height of this swing arm is critical to the correct loading of the tape. I would not suggest you attempt this repair because the tape height adjustment needs to be exact. A local shop should be able to resolve this for you with NO parts required.

Dose it have memory. can it record with out a tape?


No, the unit cannot record without a tape.
Unlike digital units which can have internal memory, analogue recorders have no internal (built-in) tape. Analogue recorders also do not have digital memory in place of an analogue tape.

After recording and replaying, the picture is "sliced up". I've tried cleaning head with dry tape, seemed to help but still there. Trouble is it seems to vary each time I play the same tape.


Do not use a head cleaner - they can damage the heads. Insert a brand new high quality tape and perform a record. Let it record through the entire tape. Then, play back an original prerecorded tape and check playback.

Play back poor now Camcorder does not record


The head is dirty or bad - insert a brand new blank tape in the camcorder and perform a record through the entire tape without stopping the process until it finishes the record all the way through - this should clean the heads. Playback a pre-recorded tape. If it plays back ok then attempt an actual record. If unsuccessful, then the heads are bad.

Can't get tape out. Stopped recording in middle of school play and I was unable to remove tape.


Sounds like the tape misfed during the recording and wrapped itself around the fly head and recordinghead. This happens sometimes when the internal workings of the recorder get dirty. The hard part is getting the tape out without damaging the unit. Your going to have to bring the recorder to a repair shop or crack it open yourself and from the opposite side try unwind the tape.

Vcr ejects tape when i try to record.


is the erase protection tab removed from the cassette?
if yes there is a square hole on the back of the tape visible when you insert it.
put a piece of sticky tape over this hole and make shure it does not come loose.
it should record fine now when you insert it again.

1). Remove the five screws from top half of cassette shell. If the cassette shell halves are glued together, very carefully split the shell with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Maneuver the screwdriver around the shell to break its seal. Avoid getting cut or damaging internal components of cassette.
2).Carefully lift off the top half of the cassette shell.
3). Pull the head if the tape from the left reel.
4). cut-off the damaged edge, and attached a peice of sctoth tape to the shining side of the tape, and leave about 1/2 inches of scotch tape beyond the head of the recording tape.
5). trim the sctoch tape using single edge of the sctoch tape razor or X-Acto knife to the same width as the recording tape.
6). carefully insert and tape the head of the recording tape to the right reel. and manually wind the tape till the recoding tape is flat to the front of the recoding pad.
7). carefully close the top shell, make sure not to pinch the tape. use your finguer trun the right reel, make sure the tape winds freely.

Panasonic DMR ES15, cannot record coywrighted vhs tapes onto dvd.


Try this:

If you have another VCR system (Master) you can connect it from the master to the Panasonic DMR ES15 (slave). Insert the copyrighted tape onto the master VCR system and insert a empty VHS tape on the slave system. In the slave, record from the master. When done, you can record from the videotape you have made from the master tape, to the DVD recorder.

If you still have problems, please contact the manufacturer of this model.
