It is not a matter of updating software. If a camcorder does not play back , fast forward, rewind or recordand the camcorder is starting, then the unit is faulty.

If unit stays on, and traction is not working, then you can have one of the following faults:

Traction fault: this is often mechanic problem. Tape is not being pulled because one of the gear is broken, or because rollers are stuck.

Faulty controller board.
Controller board must be replaced.

Faulty pad touch controls or faulty touch screen control.
Fault part must be replaced.

In all situations the camcorder must be taken apart , fixed and reassembled. This must be done by a technician, as the risk of damaging the unit beyond repair would be quit high.

For that first press power button for 10 seconds.
Then pull battery cell from it.
Then pull memory card if it is attched there.
Then again put battery then start camera then reset all settings to factory defaults.
Then check sometimes settings are messed up so this problem occurs .
Then check.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

Panasonic RR-930 does not backspace with or without pedal. It engages the mechanism but appears stuck when tape is inserted. Runs fine without tape in deck.


The ancient tape is junk. Buy a new one. You might also try slamming the old tape against a wall or desk to loosen up the tape layers. Then FF and RW all the way.

Why does my vcr play, fastforward and rewind for 4 seconds then stops for no reason?


When the mechanism is damaged the VCR will attempt to play and then shut itself down to prevent any further damage. If you remove the top cover and look around inside you will probably find the cause of the failure.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Won`t Rewind


Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

Problems with recording/rewind/fast forward


You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.

Your camera has a capstan servo problem which is more than likely being caused by the capstan motor itself.Nothing you can do youself,would suggest bring to service but reccomend getting estimate before repairing.
