Question about Panasonic AG-DV2700 Mini DV VCR
Hi, I have inserted a tape into Panasonic AG-DV2700 Mini DV Player/Recorder. It closes normally then it shuts down and show a F08 error message on the display. When i switch it back on, it whirrls to life for a while before shutting down again. I do not have this problem before and i have used it to play any kind of tape for quite some time. I have been using it to connect from the MAC to the TV
How can i retrieve my tape and how can get the player to stop shutting down? Thanks
The situation with MY Panasonic AG-DV2700 is this: put a tape in and the recorder tries twice to load it and then switches off, showing the error code F08. If I switch it back on again quickly, before the head drum stops spinning, the machine begins to wind the tape forward, NOT at full speed but at about camcorder speed or a bit slower. Pressing the display button until it shows TC ............. may give a readout, ie if the tape has been recorded on. You cannot switch the VCR off or stop it or eject the tape; the recorder has taken over and winds the tape until the end; THEN it springs into life and goes << into its usual "warp speed" rewind and is totally accessible to all controls. The trouble is, I imagine, that the NOISELESS slow >> FF gives the impression the DV2700 is doing NOTHING when in fact, for whatever reason, it's winding to the end of the tape. To get the tape out; switch the recorder on; if the loading mechanism retracts [ best see this with lid off - 2 plastic side cheeks slide back about 0.5 cm and then lift up, with a bit of manoeuvering ] then switch off at the mains. Apply a small voltage, 3 - 6 volts, to the big motor at left side of loading tray and it will open, cassette unharmed - make sure tape isn't loaded or you will stretch the tape and ruin it.
