Question about Panasonic AG-MD830E S-VHS VCR
I'm using an MD830 Panasonic on an ultrasound unit, and I keep getting an "End of Tape' message even when it's not at the end of the tape. I can start recording again, after I acknowledge the message, but as soon as I stop, the message comes back and I have to acknowledge it again. I have another MD830 that I can put in place of this that does not do that. Is there some kind of setup on the Panasonic that I'm missing?
It sounds to me that the sensor that senses the end of the tape is defect.
This is a tiny bright LED which you can easily overlook because it sometimes is fitted in a plastic frame.
