Question about Sony DSR-1800 DV/Mini DV VCR

Sony DSR-1800 Lost Lock

When playing either a MiniDV or DVCAM tape for about five to eight minutes, servo lock is lost, the servo light goes off, and the green channel condition light goes off. Playback servo lock can be restored for a few minutes if the DSR-1800 power is shut off for two to three minutes, and then turned on again. Using a Sony head cleaning tape does not solve the problem.

Check the condition of the pinch roller. a bad pinch roller can cause this problem - a tape plays for several minutes, then has problems. what happens is the tape slowly moves up or down on the roller instead of traveling in a straight path. this is caused by the roller becoming worn or glazed and not being able to provide traction to pull the tape through.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end


You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

Sony DSR-1800


these errors mean the folowing:
02-291: failed to complete winding a tape.
02-275: detected T reel FG during threading.
02-696: Detected abnormal detectiion of S and T reel rotation during play and Rec.

The second and third faults indicate a fault with the board containing the driver for the reel motors. Unless you have the service manual i suggest you buy and replace the board.
It is the DR-428 board.
good luck
