The beeping indicates that an error has occurred and that the unit has been disabled because operation could damage the unit further. To determine what the problem is- Turn unit off. While holding the STOP button, turn back on and continue to hold the button for 8 sec, then let go. Press display and you will get an error code on the monitor, for instance, C:21:00 error code (the most common code I get) indicates a condensation problem. If this is the code you get then leave the unit open in a dry place for 24 hours or so, and it should dry out the dew sensor and clear the code. The unit will hold up to 6 error codes in the order that they occur, rotate the wheel to cycle through the codes. Codes are displayed as - C:XX:XX. If you get a code other than C:21:00, then google the code,(Sony C:XX:XX) and the description will probably come up. Good luck.

How can I fix my 2002 Honda Civic cassette player from ejecting cassettes. I tried a cassette deck cleaner and that gets ejected the same.


The auto-eject feature is normally triggered by the tape reaching its end. This causes the tape to tighten and then activates a trip lever that starts the eject cycle. Most auto tape decks that are not auto-reverse eventually have this problem. It is not usually the deck's fault, but it is with the tapes themselves. After many plays the tapes get wound too tight on the reels and drag, causing the auto-ejection. This is especially true with the thinner, larger tapes found in the C-90 and C-120 varieties. Try taking the tapes to a regular tape player and then fast-forward them from one end to the other and them a full rewind as well to loosen the tape on the spindles and re-distribute the tension. Hopefully this will work.

Panasonic RR-930 does not backspace with or without pedal. It engages the mechanism but appears stuck when tape is inserted. Runs fine without tape in deck.


The ancient tape is junk. Buy a new one. You might also try slamming the old tape against a wall or desk to loosen up the tape layers. Then FF and RW all the way.

Magnavox ZV450MW8 shuts off when trying to rewind.


Unplug the machine and pick it up and shake it, this will tell you if something is in there that shouldn't be or that something broke off.
So many things could be wrong that it is probably not worth fixing if it is not a foreign object inside.

Vcr ejects after 10 seconds


The tape is wound tight or is not wound evenly creating friction. There is a safety feature designed into the vcr that senses that there is too much tension. Fast forward all the way then rewind all the way. This is the way it was in the 70's 80's for cassette tapes and vhs tapes. If the tape still ejects then check the belts.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.


If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

Erasing recorded tapes


While holding the 'Erase' button down, press the 'Rewind' or "Fast Forward' button. It will erase the tape while it rewinds or fast forwards.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.
