First you must make sure you got all of the video tape out of the unit. Unplug your unit from power and check for any remaining tape. Any small piece of tape could jam your unit and give you error code E3. Once you know you removed all tape leave your unit unplugged for 5 minutes to see if it clears up the error code. E3 is a drum rotation error code and usually clears after plugging the unit back into the power. If this did not help then further repair will be necessary.

I hope this helped you out! Good Luck!

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Hello,

Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

CAN NOT INSERT A TAPE WHEN POWER IS TURNED ON


Sony VCRs have shown these error codes for years whenever a problem occurs but it really does not help much to know what the code means. Even if you knew the code meaning you still would not know exactly what to fix in the VCR. Suffice it to say the VCR probably needs repair.

Sony dcr trv245e erroe code c32 20. I have had condensation issues with this camera in the past and now I cant eject the tape. can anyone help


The error code that your unit is now producing indicates that it is experiencing a tape transport problem - specifically that the takeup reel is leaving slack out of the cassette. This may have led to tape becoming caught in the mechanism and hence the cassette will not eject. This is one scenario although unfortunately it is not the only possibility.
The unit will probably need to go to a professional to have the cassette manually removed and the cause of the fault condition identified and rectified.

I have a Toyo Aircon TA 12C(H)S air conditioner that shows E3 on the readout and nothing will come on. Any ideas what the error codes mean?


TOYO mini split air conditioner made in Japan is very very good quality and it can runs for 20 years without any problem. E3 means low pressure of refrigerant. You didn't hire a best ac technician to install your TOYO unit. The tubing connection between indoor unit and outdoor unit is not the right torque and refrigerant leak. Your TOYO unit runs out of refrigerant. You need fix the leak and fully charge the system. You will solve the problem. Good luck to you!
