Panasonic AG-DV1000 ejecting tapes

I recently purchased a Panasonic AG-DV1000 "as is" from eBay (yes, I know I took a risk, but I've had very good luck with eBay purchases till now). The seller described the unit as part of a lot purchased from a large university that was upgrading equipment. They stated that it would "power up", but they had no tapes to test further.

The unit does power up. However, when a tape is inserted, the transport mechanism cycles once then ejects the tape. I have had the cover off and watched the tape being opened, moved to the capstans and around the head. The process the reverses and the tape is ejected.

Is this something that can be easily repaired? By me or should I take/send it in for repairs?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

The AG-DV1000 has NO belts - it's a direct drive model. The most likely problem is a defective sensor or mode switch. Replacement of either one, particularly the mode switch, involves disassembly of the mechanism; without a service manual, it's difficult.

This unit just needs the standard belt job. The rubber parts probably got old sitting around in the back romm of the university.

Could do it yourself if you are the like to take things apart type. Otherwise, a repair shop can do it very affordably.

Panasonic Ag-DV1000 mini DV deck shuts down after inserting tape


When there's a problem with the drive mechanism of a VCR it will shut down to prevent damage. All operations of a VCR are controlled by a computer chip. This is told what mode the mechanism is in by a Mode Switch. If this is faulty it can cause the machine to play up. Sometimes a spray of Video 40 on the mode switch can restore operation. However it will not correct the problem if the mechanism has any damage on it.

The message indicates that an internal problem was detected and that the unit has shut down to prevent damage to the tape. The tape will need to be removed by hand. I can not receommend a repair location without knowing where you are.

Can you post an update with your location?

AG-DV1000 Mini DV... ERROR F09


I believe that this error message indicates that the heads are not spinning. The tape should be ejected. This unit requires a servicer. There are a number of reasons for the heads not spinning. Finding out the cause in your specific unit will require testing and measurements with test gear. There are no user serviceable parts inside these units. Please see an authorized Panasonic service center.

Cant record in Panasonic AG-DV1000 using firewire


clean the heads; often, heads that will play back a pre-recorded tape may not record because of dirt.
