    Have the same problem with my ccd-tr5; Can't eject or play the tape.

    Get a caution light.

    Guess because the cassett tape is jammed?

    Any ideas on how to remove it.

    That would probably fix the caution led

Hi,
After buying a similar unit (cheaply) , I have researched the problem, and found that a batch of faulty components are likely to blame.
In 1997 , a Tiwanese company stole a secret formula for Electrolytic capacitors. Unfortunately - it was a double bluff, and the formula they stole was incomplete. They began manufacture, and sold the components on to Sony, Chinnon, Apple and other manufacturers. The components typically have a usable life of between 2 and 6 years, then start leaking electrolyte (which smells of fish,) and corrodes the connections and the board. The only solution is to remove the boards and replace them or rework the boards replacing all electrolytic capacitors - which is labour intensive.

Unfortunately "fake" components are on the market, and can cause various problems from sporadic faults to a full blown fire risk.

If your camcorder smells bad inside - suspect the components are leaking. Most service engineers consign these units to the bin as repair is difficult. If your unit has just started to give an error or started smelling - then ask service engineers to replace the electrolytic capacitors. As these are surface mount components - they are VERY fiddly to do properly, so factor the cost of rework against a replacement unit.

Units affected are between 1999 and 2007

Hi - I have a panasonic ag-7330 SVHS deck. It lights up but does absolutely nothing. The Video Rec Servo light is blinking constantly. Any ideas?


It could have a timer record present that needs to be cleared. Otherwise it could be the mode switch playing up. But that too can be caused by physical damage inside the unit, thus setting the mechanism in the wrong position. In other words it thinks it is in record mode when it's not!

Led is flashing and not showing anything.power supply voltage is not constant.


the display resolution must have changed after playing a game or using some software so that's why the LED is blinking.
Boot the PC in Safe mode & lower the resolution of your display

How can i record in vcr


On the power switch. Does it say camera/ player or Camera vtr. If it says player you can not record in vcr as you put it. In the earily days when camcorders were $800 and over ,they all Recorded from line in in the vtr mode. Not any more . See you you can switch to line in mode in the vtr postion however.

Green battery light on the archos 5 but when i disconnect it from dock or usb no green lights abd completely dead - won't switch on either in dock or out???


Power green LED light should come on, CHG green LED light should also come on showing the battery is being charged. Leave your unit in Suspend mode while charging it, DO NOT turn it completely off as "Shutting Down.." because it will not charge your battery.

I just purchased an almost new Archos 5 on eBay recently, and the first day I had it, happened to me that I left the unit off and charging on the Mini Dock with external AC power supply, after 13-14 hours the CHG light still wasn't blinking. Then I though maybe I have to leave the unit in Suspend mode rather than completely off, which I did, and in a matter of 3 hours it fully charged the battery.

Again, do not shut down completely the unit, leave it on Suspended mode, or even on, and connected it to your mini dock, after a while the screen will go blank the unit will go into Suspended mode by itself, and after 3 hours on external power supply or 8 hours via USB on PC should be completely charged and your CHG light should be blinking, indicating the battery is charged.

I hope this helped.

Drum light flashing in spite of new drum unit and new toner cartridge


common problem.
  • The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.



  • The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
  1. Open the front cover of the printer.
  1. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.
  1. Close the front cover.
Caution
    Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

Won't turn off


the On/Off/VTR Switch doesn't function anymore and the camera is a month old. Basically anytime the battery is in the camera or the camera is plugged in, it remains 'On'.

That means you can't charge batteries or use VTR mode, or turn the thing off. Way to go on this one Sony.
