I turned the unit on it's side and operated it that way. The tape drawer opened and the readout reverted to normal. After that I operated the unit for a while and then turned it back to rest on it's bottom and so far it still works.

A VHS tape is stuck in my TV/VHS combo unit.


I'm sorry to say that the solution as stated is not correct. This condition usually occurs because of belts that are slipping. In order to remove the tape, some dis-assembly is required. If you have not done this in the past, I would not suggest that you attempt this repair. This repair should cost about $10 in parts plus labor. It is possible that the IR LED is defective as well which can also cause this. This is a common failure and should be a simple repair for any shop.

My system has swallowed a cassette, the tape is stuck & I can't get the drawer to open. It tries a few times (going 'click/clunk') & then gives up.Any thoughts please?


Hi. Firts of all.. chances are that your unit needs to be cleaned or you used low quality cassettes in thr player. a tape has would itself around the capstan and pinch roller causing everything to jam up. you may need to open up the unit..seperate the cassette mechanism from the main chasis and take it apart delicately in order to get the tape out without breaking the door catch .. Use tweezers but do not mark or scratch the azimuth head...OR.. try it from the front and try to open the door with a fingernail in there..while pressing the eject...good luk.

Yes, you can open the CAP. I believe the menu has a function for that, like Select to Open CAP.

CANNOT OPEN PLAYER


To open the drawer, unplug the unit while the power is on (so that the drawer doesn't try to open on its own). Keeping the unit flat on a table, look underneath and find the small hole where you can turn the loading gear. Rotate it until the unit opens, using a standard flat screwdriver. The loading gear is a white plastic part with a slot in it. You should be able to see it rotate if you move the drawer by hand.

After manually removing the disc, turn the gear with your screwdriver until the drawer is all the way in, The gear should be able to be turned for three or four more turns when the drawer stops loading. If it doesn't, turn it a bit further unit it "pops" past one more gear notch. It should then turn freely for a few more turns, at this point you should stop. Do not force it once it stops the second time. This is the "Disc Loaded" position.

Power the unit back up and see if it loads a disc and plays correctly.

Cleaning dispenceser drawer can't open


Unfortunately the screws which hold the dispenser to the machine are located behind the drawer which at present you are unable to open. As you say you have the top cover off, you might try shining a light into the top side to see if you can see where the hang up is, and then drilling a small hole in the plastic and poking something through to move or dislodge the blockage. A small hole could be resealed with foil tape or silicone, or the dispenser housing replaced once you are able to remove the drawer and access the mounting screws.

Much loved old J.V.C. unit


Sounds to me like the belt drive is slipping!
Need to open her up and check tightness of belt and probably try to buy another one which will be tighter!

Fisher & Paykel DD603ZW DishDrawer - Leaking.


I removed all internal pieces from the drawers to make them as light as possible. Then removed the securing screws, 2 each side at lower drawers. (These secure the unit in position in its cove. Slide out bottom drawer and loosen height adjust screws each corner to lower unit and then slide out. I taped the drawers closed so they wouldn't open as I moved it. I lifted the front and put a heavy rag under the front legs which helped me draw it out. It helps if you have a second pair of hands. As you edge it out, ensure power and water supply hoses are clear of any obstructions. it's not that heavy just unwieldy. Chers, Craig from OZ.
