Question about Sony SLV-765HF VHS VCR
When I attempt to play a VHS tape I get what looks like an error message displayed in the "window". Message shown is 3L22AA. Can anyone tell me what this means and why my unit will not play the tape? I have tried multiple tapes with the same result

I get the same problem with one tape (it's about 20 minutes long) .. it also shows a '4' ... when you press the power button it ejects the tape... some tapes are fine ...

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject
The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.
The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!

SOURCE: DSR 11 playback problem
Pete, we are having the same problem with 2 dsr-11s.
The fix for us was the "auto repeat" switch on the back of the unit. It was "on" please turn it off.
The other idea was that the tape tension is very sensitive in the units, try exercising the tape (though exorcise might be good too) by fast-forwarding then rewind the tape start to finish. Tape that were tightly wound at the factory can cause this proble as well. Good Luck. Greg VA

Error 20 is "Cassette compartment motor lock" this is meaning the cassette loading mech is not accepting the tape It could be miss-aligned in it's position or one of the sensors is defective or the motor is bad

Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep
