If it's going into self-checking then either there is a problem with the drawer deck mechanism not being able to communicate with the logic board, hence the reason it stays in the self check. Contact your local Panasonis dealer to arrange a service engineer to perform a software update on the recorder as your current software could either be an older version or has been corrupted & needs to be updated.

Machine suddenly shuts off during playback or record - is this fixable?


When something goes wrong during playback etc, all VCR's will shut down to prevent tape damage, or further mechanical damage.
There are two possible causes for this problem. One is there is some sort of damage to the mechanism, possible a plastic part that is broken. The second cause is the mode switch. This tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. If that goes wrong the electronics might think it is in eject mode when it's in playback, for example, with things going very wrongs as a result. All are fixable if you can get the parts!

The playback drawer will not open, continues to flash "reading" until I press "play" and the it reads "clos ".


There should be a small hole on the playback drawer to allow a manual opening of the drawer. The player does not have to be on and preferably should be off when doing the manual eject. Take a paper clip, straighten out one leg, then push it into the hole about 1/4 inch until you hear a click and the drawer should open.

Gr-dvl-520u trying to record or playback tape it goes into safeguard mode within 5 seconds. alternatly pressing play and still every 3 seconds advanced the playback without it going into safeguard mod


According to http://www.techlore.com/article/10974/JVC-Camcorder-Stuck-in-Safe-Mode/,

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

If neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

If you are getting E03 or E04 errors on every tape you try, it sounds like a servicing is required.

Stays in self check mode


If self check keeps going after 1 minute unplug machine and open top cover remove 4 screws that hold the recorder top cover remove disk reinsert screws and plug in see what happens.

Most of the time a small scratch or fingerprint on recorded disk cause these units to lock up

Stuck in self check mode


Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
