Sony SLV-X837 Unknown Error Code

Hello,

I have a Sony SLV-X837 VCR and it has served me well but now I get an error that I cannot find any info about anywhere. I get the occasional 3L 25cc on the display and it sometimes will not record on timer only??

Any Ideas??

Thanks

Rodney

SOURCE: Cannot eject VHS tape from Sony SLV-X811

I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.

o Front display,wrong functions on front buttons.

CAUSE
Corrupted data is stored in the NVM memory (IC605) or part of the data is erased.
The model option data flags are erased or set incorrectly.

SOLUTION
1. CAPACITOR AND RESISTOR REPLACEMENT NOTE
For continuous reliability, regardless of the symptom, ALWAYS check and replace if necessary C701 in the correct mounting position and ALWAYS modify R668/R669 from 10k to 4.7k.
1.1. Open the set and replace C701 "470µF 10V" (1-126-925-11)
1.2. Make sure to mount C701 in the correct way, the positive (+) side points to the edge of the MCB. NOTE THAT THE WHITE PRINTING FOR C701 ON THE MCB IS INCORRECT (REVERSE)!
1.3. Replace R668 and R669 "10k" (1-216-675-11) with "4.7k" (1-216-667-11).

2. OPTION DATA SETTINGS
2.1. Connect the unit to the AV input of a television with a SCART connection cable in order to enable the on-screen display.
2.2. Enter the unit into test mode: press the record button on the front panel, then press the menu button on the remote commander for 5 seconds until the option setting display appears on the connected television. The option display has 8 columns and 9 rows with decimal numbers.
2.3. Enter the correct option settings according to the model and model destination. Refer to the option setting table in this document or page 5-6E of the Service Manual.
2.4. The option number is selected with the FF, REW, STOP and PAUSE buttons on the remote commander.
2.5. Pressing the OK (PLAY) button on the remote commander activates the selected option number. An activated option number appears in reverse colour.
2.6. After all required option numbers are activated press the MENU button on the remote commander to save the changes. A message "Please wait" appears for a few seconds after which the setting is completed.
2.7. Turn the power OFF and back ON.

3. HEAD SWITCHING PULSE ADJUSTMENT
3.1. Remove the front panel.
3.2. Insert a VHS alignment tape (like KRV-4821PS).
3.3. Press the TEST button located behind the front panel at the left-hand side of the tape/display area.
3.4. Press the SP/LP button on the remote commander. The adjustments are operated automatically.

4. FUNCTIONAL CHECK
4.1. Re-assemble the unit and perform functional checks.
4.2. Check for correct language setting.
4.3. Confirm basic functions like Playback, FF, REW, etc.
4.4. Check for a noise-free picture quality in playback mode.
4.5. Switch the unit on and off for a couple of times.
4.6. Perform a timer record to confirm the function and picture quality.
4.7. Check the SmartLink function (if available with the connected television) by transferring the TV preset settings to the VHS recorder.

SOURCE: VCR tape is stuck - will not rewind or eject.

There schould be a release buuton on the rear of the machine. It's usually recessed and may be difficult to see. Press this with the yip if a ballpoint pen and extract the tape. If the tape is wrapped around the record/playback heads your only option is to remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. Sounds difficult but if you take your time it's not too bad a job.

Testimonial: "Thank you! - no button - took the top off. I depressed a lever next to the tape switched the VCR back on and pressed the eject button - it worked!"

Dvd slot will not open - got code 'L1"


L1 is not an error code, in fact it is Line-1 that is set when combo selected VCR mode.
Set combo on DVD mode by setting its input button on remote or unit front to get dvd tray eject

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.

SLV-660HV Will not load


If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
