Question about Sharp Televison & Video
Was going through old tapes recorded on short play , long play, xl play and now none will work. Even tried the 10 second reset from user manual, still no joy. Is the machine goosed?
Goosed? A quaint way of saying it's trash? Well, it can be fixed, but unless it's vital to your video, it may not be worth fixing. You probably have a lack of torque, which would not unusual for an old video recorder.If you need more assistance, or would like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website, audioserviceclinic.com. you may contact me there.

SOURCE: tapes keep getting stuck
we have 4 of the decks. they will often fail to unload panasonic and maxell tapes, i think its due to the design of the reel bases. sony tapes always work fine, they are flat where the others have a groove.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
