You don't give any other details, but perhaps the following will help.

First, if you haven't tried this already, unplug the VCR for 30 seconds or so to do a reset on the logic circuitry.

Next, check for a mechanical failure, such as a tape stuck in the machine, a cracked or broken gear in the tape load or threading mechanism, or a something bent in the tape carriage (this is what you stick the tape into, and it in turn pulls it into the machine). Anything awry in these areas will mean no operation. A broken gear, or if the gears are just one tooth off will likely cause a no function error condition

Other possible problems include: Malfunction of an optical sensor, power supply not supplying the proper voltages, or a logic circuit problem.

These latter problems will take technical savvy for sure.

VCRs of the last 10+ years are essentially disposable and not economically feasible to repair, so if the problem is rather involved, toss the old rig and buy a new one.

I have a NV-DX110B about 11 years old. I'm getting

Your camera appears slightly older than mine so I will do my best for you. Have you tried ejecting the tape with the power off? If I have problems I slide the eject button when the camera is off but plugged in and the tape can be ejected. I suspect the tape mechanism is in trouble. When a tape stuck in mine I had to literally force the cover open. But this is a last resort.

Give my suggestion a try and apologies if you have already tried that...

The F03 code is a problem with your water system. your inlet valves may have failed.
Open up the bottom panel and you will find a tech sheet that explain the codes and gives trouble shooting techniques. You may need to replace the water inlet valve.

Good morning.
Error code F03 means that the wash thermistor is open circuit, this means that the water is not getting hot.
You need to fit a new thermistor first of all, if that does not solve the prob, then you will have to fit a new heater element as well.
You will normally find the element and thermistor located at the rear of the m/c.
Access it by removing lower rear panel
To get the parts, go
Plz rate my solution.

Error F03

F03 is a loading mechanism error. look for something obstructing the loading arms in the mechanism - a label from a tape, a piece from a broken cassette, etc.
