Check your tape path. The Supply, Takeup or Pinch guides may be worn allowing the tape to track improperly. Also the the pinch roller may need to be replaced. These are a few things to check.
The earlier post about head switching is also valid. Good Luck !

Sounds like the head switch point may need to be adjusted.

3 small black bar appear on the screen. they are lined horizontally


Hello,
All Plasma and LCD TV have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times reseating the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, but it is very easy to rectify.
Good luck in solving the problem...

The deck will accept a large tape but not a small one. I do not get an error code the small format just won't seat.


Most likely problem is the flat cable in the cassette housing. This cable breaks, and the sensors for large/small tapes can't tell the deck to move the reel tables to accommodate the tape.

Polaroid TLX-04240B going to a black screen after running for 2mins. Any ideas on how to fix this?


open the black plastic panel and the aluminum panel which has 3 screws each in the back of the tv.
look at bottom left corner of top board. to the right of the red led light,
there's these four white small switches. turn the bottom two switches to "on" and tv should be working.
It's very simple to fix the problem to everyone.
My tv capacitor was not the problem.
I hope this will help everybody.

PVW 2800 hour meter readings?


The reason you can't read the head hour meter, it's because the lithium battery only has a lifetime of 5 years so it's dead and you need to replace it!
