Question about Mitsubishi HS-U445 VHS VCR

1 Answer

E2 error Hi - I have a HS-851 VHS, and have submitted on this model as though it was the closest. I have an E2 error code flashing and was wondering what this is and if it is significant/fatal prob. I see another post with a flashing 2 light, which seemed to be tape ejection related. My partner had trouble removing a tape and finally got it out via repeated use of the eject button. Some force was required by her to retrieve the tape once it became partly available. It is a relatively old Nicam VHS but has been really great (I love the ability to skip adverts). Will probably buy a HDD recorder, but want to be able to play existing videos - so any help is appreciated. Mitsubishi HS U445 I have a flashing E2 error...have unplugged and done everything imaginable..but the manual doesn't even mention L1 L2 OR E2 errors...I love my recorder..and hate to get rid of it due to this problem..In the past a repairman just told me over the phone the solution..but I don't remember what it was..and he is no longer working at that shop..If you have any suggestions..I would so appreciate it. thank

Re: E2 error

Just had the same E2 come up on my HSU-445. The only thing we could figure out was to try a different tape than the one that was in there when the error came up. That seemed to do the trick. Not sure how long that will work. Good luck.

I cant operate my vcr there's a code on it L2 I can't change the channel or record nothing it's theL2

Haveing looked around the web I can only find results for the E2 code for this model.
E2 indicates that the loading motor is locked in the unload direction.
This means that when the tape was in the machine it tried to unload the tape and got stuck. There could be numorous causes for this that would require investigate. Till the fault is cleared the machine will be unoperational.

Getting E2 error flashing on vcr and can't rewind tape or anything.Don't have user manual to see what that error means.

E2 means: Loading motor locked in the unload direction. Usually(not always) happens with a going bad VCR tape on the rewind. Tape is becoming too difficult to rewind and/or VCR is getting tired. Eject tape. Discard tape as soon as practical, new tapes are cheap. To clear: Hold power on/off button for 8 seconds.

E2 is not an error code. It means that the video tuner is set to EXT2 (Scart input 2)

Press the VCR button on the remote control, and try again.

E2 error

Something might've been broken in the forced tape removal. VCR tape carriage (the cassette unit) assemblies are rather delicate, easily broken, in contrast to the units in early VCRs (from the '80s or early '90s). Use of force in tape removal... can break stuff, or perhaps get the gear timing fouled up. Take the top cover off, look for broken pieces of this assembly. If this assembly has gears on the right side, this obviously means it is gear driven. Timing is set by lining up marks on the gears, in most cases. Setting this might be tricky- service literature will tell you how to set this, and in what mode the marks line up.
