Question about Sony DSR-1800 DV/Mini DV VCR
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 07.042 means Detected the abnormal capstan speed.here what u have to do go to maintanence menu.and check the capstan speed
