When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Another possibility is that the tape is caught aroung the spindle guides that pull the tape around the video head. If the tape is caught in the spindles, this will affect playback performance. The heads could be dirty too. Another possibility for poor playback is a slipping idler wheel. The idler wheel is a rubber tire that pivits between the tape sending and pickup reels. It's a key part during playback, fast forward & rewind. The idler tire can also be treated with a re-grip solution or be replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor.

    I dont know specifically what the error codes you mentioned mean, but there are sensors in the VCR that detect a problem is present and will either display a code or flash an LED.

    Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. You can rotate the pully and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved.

Panasonic NV HD630 is showing error f06 when the eject button is pressed. The tape cassette seems to be locked in and does not rise. I have removed the top. The tape is withdrawn back to the cassette....


You have a K-Deck mechanism. F06 means the mechanism locks after unload. The cause of this is the load motor or the carriage alignment.
If you enter "Panasonic K-Deck" into google you should find service information and a guide to getting the tape out - all free!

You sound like you have a K Deck Model. If this is the case F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading.
The apparent cause of this is the Load Motor timing.

Panasonic deck ag dv2000 gives error code f09


Your vcr seems to use the K Mech. F04 Means that the mechanism locks unloading.
The cause of which might be the loading motor timing.
F09 means No serial clock linking IC2004, IC7005 and IC7701.

VCR Tape Stuck


Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
