Panasonic VCR NV-HD642 - F04 Error

I see the F04 error when my VCR is in standby mode, and can't eject the tape, it's stuck. I had this problem before, but plugging out for 30-60 minutes was enough. Now, it was plugged off for more than 1 hour, but I still can't eject it.

Time the tape stuck: somewhat before 7:00 PM
Time this problem submitted: 9:40-9:45 PM

Time zone: Central European Summer Time (CEST)
UTC+01:00

You sound like you have a K Deck Model. If this is the case F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading.
The apparent cause of this is the Load Motor timing.

Panasonic NV HV 62


I think that code might mean that the mechanism is getting stuck as it tries to unload the tape. Look around for signs of damage and examine the Loading Motor.

Error F04


You have a K Mech model. F04 is the code for "Mech locks during unloading". The cause of this is the Load Motor Timing.
You can get service information for the K-Mech from service manual site ESI. It was free when I download it last. Also it gives instructions on how to get trapped tapes out!
Any problems getting hold of it let me know.

F 04 - Tape stuck in recorder


F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading. You need to check the Load motor and it's timing.
You have by the way a K Mech model. This will help you find parts and other information on the mechanism.

Panasonic NV HD620 Error F06


You appear to have a model that uses the K Deck Chassis.
F06 in that case stands for: "Mechanism locks after unload". The cause being either the loading motor or the carriage alignment.
