Question about Panasonic AG-DV2500 DV/Mini DV VCR

1 Answer

Deck will not accept DV tape

After approx 2 months of use where everything works fine, all of a sudden my deck will not accept a tape to play. When you put the tape in, it takes it, and then immediately ejects it. This began to happen after I rewound a tape, took the tape out, and then put it in again...this is when it would not accept any tapes.

    Thanks for your input. Panasonic Authorized Repair stated the same thing, that it is the lift mechanism in the unit.



    We'll see if that is the issue.

Most likely problem is a defective cassette housing. I've replaced about a dozen of these in AG-DV2500s.

Was given an Ampex AG-440 tape deck that stopped recording after sitting for about six months. Any ideas? (I lost the Manual) Everything else works fine. When put into record mode all lights are lit...


try cleaning the record head, Most people only clean the play back heads on tape players, the record head is just off to one side of the main playback heads , you can use a Qtip and rubbing alcohol to do the cleaning

Need to record from turntables to cassette deck.


Bypass the reciever. Just mixer to tape deck. You will get a better recording anyways!

DSR-11 stopped outputting anything


I have almost the same problem!  Did you ever figure out what happened?  Here's what I had posted yesterday:
Tech Friends - 
I recently got a non-sony tape stuck in my DSR-11 (bummer) and was forced to extricate it using the "my tape got stuck in the DSR - 11" article's method of removing the top cover and highest level of circuit board:  
http://www.fixya.com/support/t178954-tape_stuck_inside

This worked for the tape removal, however, upon replacing the circuit board and cover, the deck no longer seems to be able to do anything with video or audio.  It still communicates with FCP via its firewire connection (ie FCP is able to control FF, rewind, play functions, etc), but it seems unable to read or write video.  Also, we use it as an A - D converter box between a Beta SP deck and thecomputer (actually, this is the deck's main function here).  Even when I switch it to the correct setting (video) and check to make sure that everything is plugged in correctly (trust me, I checked, it is), I get the "there is no video here" error message. 
Also, after trouble shooting the drive for a little while, I pressed the "reset" button the the rear.  I'm not sure if that matters one way or the other.  I don't think it does (that just resets the time code, right?) 
The question is, would this be a case of "fried firewire jack" such as it seems so many of us DSR - 11 owners have?  Could I have done any frying myself by not having myself properly grounded when opening the shell?  Is there anyone who knows the answer?  Help!  I can't digitize my video!
Comment by eltriunfo, posted on Sep 05, 2008 The Plot Thickens... 
Okay, I've checked all of the FCP settings and played with the deck more and it's only confused me more.  I can now get it to not only be controlled by the computer, but actually print audio and video to mini dv tape.  Also, I can record from my Beta SP deck to miniDV tape in the deck (connected through the "video" input on the rear of the unit).  In other words, the deck seems to function perfectly doing everything except for converting analogue to digital passively.  The way we always did it before was by keeping the input switch on the face of the unit on "video" and log and capturing in FCP with it as a noncontrolable ntsc device.  This makes me understand it less.  It means to me that it is not a broken switch, it's not a broken firewire port, everything works perfectly EXCEPT for using the unit as an A-D converter.  What the dill-yo?  If anyone in the world could offer any insight as to what could be causing this I would greatly appreciate it!

Won't properly accept tapes/ tape won't fully insert


probably a bent cassette housing in the deck - time to seek out jvc authorized repair.

Tapes not in 24p play for 2 seconds than stop, WHY?


The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape. Good Luck, this is a nice machine!
