How to fix code F60 problem?


Defect of Digital P.C.B. processing board and needs to be replaced. F60 is a result of a low or missing voltage on the digital board. Often the culprit would be capacitors that have leaked.

But first try a "cold boot". Unplug the device, wait 2 minutes, then plug it back in. When the 00000 display starts, hold down the POWER button for at least 10 seconds which puts the device into "standby mode". Wait another 10 seconds then press the POWER button.

If these have just appeared then it could be dirt on the video head, but most videos have noise lines on video tapes during FF and RW and there's nothing wrong with them.

When I put a cassette in the VCR it plays for about 5 seconds and then shuts off by it's self. I have tried numerous cassettes and they all do the same thing. I do not have a head cleaner what else can be...


When a tape is inserted into a machine a switch called a "mode switch" tells the electronics of the machine what mode the VCR is in. If this switch goes wrong ie: it sends out wrong position message, the electronics powers the machine down.
So your machine could have a faulty mode switch. However the mode switch might be OK, but forced into a wrong position by a broken part in the VCR.
Cleaning the head will not help. Sometimes a spray of Servisol Video 40 on the mode switch will clear any dirt that could be causing a false reading. But it won't do anything if it or any part of the video is damaged.
I'll post below pictures of a mode switches to help you find it. It might look a bit different though on your model.

Take-up reel in Sony SLV-N750 doesn't take up.


The idler assembly is not engaging the takeup reel correctly. Examine the gearing between the hubs for debris. There are parts available for this deck, but it is difficult to say whether or not you actually need any. Check for the debris first and let me know what you find.

Goldstar KMV-9012 (year 1990) TV/VCR Combo


This is the problem with these combo units. When the VCR has trouble (this sounds like a mechanical one) it inhibits the TV from working as well cause they share the same power supply. It needs a VCR expert to fix ya up.
I tell people all the time not to buy these combo units unless they really need the conveinience cause you get to throw away the TV when the VCR goes bad.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.
