Question about Computers & Internet
E2 indicates that the loading motor is locked in the unload direction. I am not sure if this applies to the actual Mitsubishi model you have,
but have you tried holding the power button on for more than 8 seconds,
as that resets the error code on some models.
If the power button suggestion doesn't work I would unplug the unit, then take the top cover off and (carefully!) wiggle the arm that wraps the tape around the head, as if the problem is caused by an iffy sensor that could get it moving. (also generally shake the cogs in the mechanism)
If your feeling competent at taking things apart and putting them together again take the top of the machine (after removing mains power) and look towards the RHS of the deck mechanism and you will see a "Helter-Skelter" shaped piece of plastic which is part of the loading mechanism. Remove the "Pinch Roller" first.
If you carefully remove this taking care to note its orientation (note the position of the small index holes at its base) and that of the gears around it (A closeup pic taken with a digital camera comes in handy here) you can clean/degrease its inner shaft with isopropyl alcohol and a pipe cleaner, regrease it and re-assemble...it sticks due to hardened grease and causes error messages. Or you just replace the machine as it is older and who knows what could go bad next. It's up to you. I hope this helps and good luck!
