Question about Sony Betacam SP Small Videocassette 30 Minutes Digital Betacam SP Tape

3 Answers

Error 02-603 My Sony UVW 1800 says this error 02-603. Rebooting doesn't work. Manual eject from the menu doesn't work either and I have a tape in the machine. Perhaps my only option is to open the covers. Can someone help me please.

    Hi FixYa,

    Nice to hear of your help on betacam decks.  I have a Sony UVW-1800 and I mistakenly put a digital betacam tape (124) in and now I can't get it out.  If ¥ou have any suggestions, I'm all ears.  I got the top off, but I don't want to force anything for fear of not being able to use it again.

    Please help if you can,

    Thanks so much,

    Don in NJ

Yeah, unscrew the 2 top screws. Underneath the lid, there's instructions on how to manually remove the tape. You're also going to have to pull out the tape tray. There's a metal piece holding it down that you can remove by taking out the 2 screws. Then it's a matter of pulling the tray out and turning the tiny gear at the front (not the 2 bigger ones on the side) until it makes the full motion path. Holy ****, that takes a long time. Once you have removed the tape, replace the tray, the holding bar, the 2 screws for that, and the cover.

02-603 is "tape slack". to find out what is causing the slack, you will have to remove the top panel.

Tape stuck in sony uvw-1800


02-874 error code signifies a defective takeup reel. The reel is not winding the tape in, so the deck won't go through the eject procedure. Check the connection to the takeup reel motor; if that's OK, the motor itself may be bad. Rarely, the takeup reel motor assembly will need to be replaced; usually it's a connection problem.

I just found this post on another site :
tsvservice- 29th Jun 2007 14:0109-221 is "failure to complete threading within the specified time". in plain talk, the mechanism in the deck that threads the tape around the heads is not working. this could be a bad motor, bad gear, or even a bad tape.

Digital betacam tape stuck in Sony UVW-1800 deck


Digital tapes should still eject normally (they are the same size and shape) which indicates that it has jammed somewhere inside.
If you want to fix it yourself you will have to remove the cover and check the tape.
If the cassette hasn't spooled up and all the tape is inside the cassette you should be able to unscrew the carriage (the cradle that takes the tape in and down) and remove it that way.

If the tape has spooled around the heads there is a cog (can't remember the exact position of it) arranged vertically near the side of the machine that you can manually wind the spooling arms back into the cassette.

Good luck
