When playing either a MiniDV or DVCAM tape for about five minutes, servo lock is lost, the servo light goes off, and the green channel condition light goes off.
Stopping play, ejecting the tape cassette, reinserting the tape cassette, and starting play does not solve the problem.
However, if the DSR-1800 power is turned off for half a minute after the tape is ejected, then lock is restored when the tape is reinserted and play is started. After a few minutes lock is lost again.
If the tape continues to play while lock is lost, eventually the error code 07-042 (Detected abnormal capstan speed) appears on the monitor.

This error means the reel position motor is not moving the reels either together for mini DV or appart for large tapes. Usually because the sliders or gears have run out of lubrication and have seized due to not being serviced periodically. Otherwise there may be a foreign object stuck in there like a torn label etc. Try a different size cassette tape, it may be ok on large if you are trying small or vice-versa, because it is already in that position.
Hi, Two possibilities, either player needs tape path adjustment or requires drum (video head) replacement. Above said solution requires expertise and Sony trained tech will do this job with proper tools. Thanks.
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.
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.
Pete, we are having the same problem with 2 dsr-11s.
The fix for us was the "auto repeat" switch on the back of the unit. It was "on" please turn it off.
The other idea was that the tape tension is very sensitive in the units, try exercising the tape (though exorcise might be good too) by fast-forwarding then rewind the tape start to finish. Tape that were tightly wound at the factory can cause this proble as well. Good Luck. Greg VA
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.
