Question about Sony SLV-D360P DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

While rewinding, the DVD player just stopped working

Hi, I have a SLV-D360P DVD-VCR combo player. Last week, while I was rewinding a Video, the player just stopped working. I unplugged and plugged the power, after which I do not see any lights on the front panel. No power, no title, nothing. So far I have done the following: 1. Opened the cover and I see the Video unit is still in the rewind position. 2. Checked the fuse next to the power supply unit and it is OK 3. Checked the power cord using a multimeter. The Power cord is working perfect. Would someone happen to know, what I can do to get this fixed? Thanks for your help Jeff

    Same problem as Jeff.

    Was rewinding a tape, then unit shuts off.

    Unplug, replug, to no avail.

    After opening casing, see the tape is still is rewind position.

    Power supply fuse is fine.

    Unit is totally dead.

    About to cut the tape out and remove video cassette to see if that resets something internally? Clueless though?

Tony/sonydvdvcr here,

I hope this helps. I have been unsuccessful in getting this to fix the tape player, but my sony dvd vcr slv360p unit now works and the dvd plays great. Still working on the tape part. Good Luck!

A few days ago when I was searching online for a solution to my own problem, I came across fixya. After posting the exact same problem as yourself, I began to remove the tape from the unit. Thinking I would have to cut the tape, I attempted to remove the video cassette without cutting it. I was successful. Here are the steps I took:

1. Remove the outer casing.

2. Remove the approx. 8" bar (2 screws) across the VHS entry area. (You can do with or without removing face of player. Be careful if done without)

3. Remove 4 or 5 screws in base holding the entire video assembly to floor.

4. Next, is the tricky part. First determine if the tape is one you want to salvage. If so, slide the tape film out of the roller areas where it is strewd out while it was being rewound so it is free, otherwise cut it. You will then have to pry the VHS up in the front through the entry door and push from the rear. Might have to try a few times, walk away, then try some more. But it will come free. Tension can be eased by simultaneously prying on the sidetabs holding the cassette in the player. Careful not to break tabs.

5. Once tape is free, you may be done, but I kept on in uncertainty.

6. Next I removed the entire video tape assembly by raising it off the tall pointed posts enough to clear them but not too much where you put excessive strain on the several computer bands that are attached.(I did not disconnect those, just be careful)

7. Raise the assembly off of the floor and then replace. There is a slim narrow plug style deal that is fixed to the floor that the assembly rests in. I believe this is significant to allow the player to reset.

8. Check power now before you replace everything. You should see the tape assembly physically reset and disengage from the rewind position.

9. Replace assembly and bar and face accordingly.

I hope this helps. I have been unsuccessful in getting this to fix the tape player, but my unit now works and the dvd plays great. Still working on the tape part. Good Luck!
