SLV765HF error message

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

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

Suddenly tapes won't play on VHS/HDD/DVD recorder.I get a 'no signal' message.

You may have a head alignment issue with your machine. This is a basic repair. Contact an electronics repair shop and have them quote you. They usually will charge you a diagnostics fee as a minimum.

Error Message on display

The alarm message usually means that the tape didn't load properly.  Instead of trying to play the tape and destroy it, the unit will just stop.  A common problem is that the tape heads don't spin.  Without a cushion of air between the heads and the tape, the tape will get ruined.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a repair that needs to be done by a tech.  The positions of the tape and heads are very touchy and have to be perfect.  I would try to find a repair center that can give you a good estimate and then determine for yourself if repairing the unit is cost effective.

Hope this helps :)

VHS plays for 5 to 10 seconds then power switches off

I think you might have a problem with the VHS mechanism. Perhaps damage to the mechanical parts. If the mechanism can't perform the task it has been set after a very short period it will send a message to the electronics to shut down. This prevents further damage to the tape or system.

Panasonic VCR 7350 displays error messages and cant insert tape

There is either some damage to the mechanism or the mode switch is faulty. If you know what to look for taking the top cover off might show what part of the mechanism is damaged.
If it is the mode switch then it will need to be replaced. This can't be done without the service manual as the vcr needs to be set up. And they are never set up in the eject position.

Tape end camcorder

Have you tried different VHS tapes? If your VHS tape is too far rewound or at the very end your camcorder will display this problem. In a different VHS machine make sur the tape is rewound and then play the tape about a minute and then try it in the VCR.
If this doesn't work then there is a problem with the tape end sensors in your VCR.

Error message E4 and stuck tape

Yes with care. Simply remove the cover and with care unwrap the tape. If you must break the tape - but make sure all residual tape is cleanly removed. Re assemble and put a tape head cleaner through- following the instructions.
