When I plug in my AG-1980P, it will power up, but then immediately powers down and gives an F 04 error in the LCD display area.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,  Karen

    I have the same problem.

    1st occurence:
    I'll not recorded to any video casettes recently. The solution of sedonix is helped, but I needed at least 30 minutes!

    2st occurence (still not fixed):
    The solution of sedonix is not helped! I'll recorded to 2 video casettes recently. After the 2-3st recent record to the 2st video casette, I've replaced the video casette and F 04 problem still occurs after trying sedonix's solution for at least 1 hours-1 hours 30 minutes!

    Help please!

These are good old VCRs probably in need of a belt overhaul.

Try unpluging the unit for 2 minutes and see if the error message is reset.

A strange problem with a TEAC AG-790A amplituner


Maybe in your AC outlet is not correct voltage. Measure the voltage, check connection all the wires. I had a similar problem with my TV - there was loose connection (released wire) in the electrical distribution panel.

Panasonic AG-DS550 VCR shuts itself down about 2 seconds after switched on. No error code appears in that brief interval. Toggling the power switch immediately is ineffective, but after waiting a while,...


This is a typical symptom of a power supply failure. There are some self-checks performed at power-up that are not completing correctly. Were there any symptoms before the complete failure? Often, the units start to behave strangely before complete shutdown. The power supply failure is tied to defective capacitors in most cases. These supplies are what are called "switch-mode" supplies and must oscillate to work. Defective caps will either not provide the kikcker to start the oscillation or prevent the oscillation completely. While there are other causes, this is the most common. AG units are professional decks and should be serviced by authorized service centers.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Video noise pattern in playback panasonic AG 1980P VCR


It sounds like the video heads are dirty, or the tracking is off. I would first try adjusting the tracking to see if it can be corrected. If that does not work then I would clean the video heads using a video head cleaner (Radio Shack) You could also try a different tape to see if it that could be the reason. Also double check you video connections to your monitor to make sure they are good. If all of this fails than it may have to be checked out at an authorized Panasonic repair facility!

I hope this helps and good luck!

No power. led display very dim


dim display on an ag-1980 may be caused by bad display module or bad electrolytic capacitors in the display power supply. "no power" is probably a bad 12 volt regulator on the main board. the main power supply is working as evidenced by the display lighting up.
