Make sure the little red tab on top of the tape is set to record and not save. The camcorder will not let you record it its set to save

SOURCE: Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1- doesn't do anything in record mode

As I have been writing on other HD1/2 problems, sometimes it can be the card which is an issue. If the card is too slow or perhaps corrupted then the device can find it difficult to record.

This and other soft faults (that are reperable by turning the power on and off, changing or reinserting the card, removing the battery) are often indicated by a flashing red recording light.

SOURCE: My Teac Z-7000 will not record tapes

Hello,
some weeks ago I got this really impressive deck (Teac Z 7000) from a colleague, and found the same problem. I fixed it, and the fix is not too complicated. It´s the potentiometers that do fail. All pots are from the same manufacturer (Alps) and construction. The problem is that the wisher is broken away from the holding plastic and will loose contact completely. You can check that with a normal ohmmeter: You´ll find the total resistance over the outer terminals but endless resistance from one of the outer terminals to the middle wisher contact. The values are: 100 kOhm linear for each of the upper left pots (fader,space), 2x22kOhm pos.log. for the lower left pot (phone volume). So, what does a broken wisher at the "fade in" pot do? The Recorder "thinks" that You selected an "endless" fade in time, and the result is : no record level. You can do an easy "quick and dirty" fix just to see if that´s the problem: Hold- or better solder- a say 47kOhm resistor in parallel to the conducted potentiometer terminals and try to record.
4 of 5 pots have been defective in my deck, and I´ve replaced them with standard types from my local electronic supplier (Conrad electronic, has a shop in Frankfurt/Main). Well, the new parts didn´t fit perfectly, I used a file to get them in (not visible from outside). Also I lost the possibility of pushing the knobs in and out, but that is not a really problem.
I assume this fix might also help owners of the Teac Z-6000 and Z-5000, which- most probably- use the same type of potentiometers.

Reel recorder


The A4070G can record in each direction but has a switch that needs to change to switch the heads. This must be stuck after all this time and so the deck needs service. They are not easy unit to work on. I have one in my shop now. The bad news is that they use combo record and erase Ferrite heads that can not be sourced anymore.
I am very familiar with this model as I worked at Teac and fixed many of them.

Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: “Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone.”

  1. Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play themessages unless it has no messages.
  2. Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that thesystem is in the command waiting mode.
  3. Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, “Record greeting.” Begin recording after the announcement.
  4. When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recordedgreeting plays back for you.

Camcorder won't record


Check the tape and make sure the record tab is still on the tape and has not been removed. If the record tab has been removed then use a new tape for recording as the unit will not record. This tap is usually on the lower left end of the back of the tape. When the tap is present it closes a record mode switch letting the system know the tape is able to bv recorded on..

I cannot erase a tape


Audio cassette tapes are not erasable.
You must record over the recorded portion or side of the tape you want to delete. You can of course record silence if you want a "clean" or "new" tape (turn the volume all the way down and then press the record button).
I found that I could do very fast with some recorders by pressing the record button and simultaneously pressing fast forward.

Erasing the tape on a sony handycam vision please


Well the cheapest way is to go into record mode, cap the lens with the black lens cap and record a 'black' picture on the tape. This will erase all the pictures on the tape and leave you with a 'black' screen on the whole tape.
