Question about Sony SLV-678HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

On-Off Problem I actually have an SLV-620HF but this one is close enough, I thing, to diagnose the problem. I can't get the device to turn on completely. When you hit the power button, it comes on for one second, and off for one second constantly, until I pull the power cord in the back. Then it goes off completely. Obviously a reboot (by pulling the power cord) does not work. I need to know how to turn it on and MAKE IT STAY ON!!!

This is usually a power supply problem. The power supply is cycling due to damage or a problem on the syscon board

Where can I get a remote control for the Sony VHS SLV 685HS?


You can get a duplicate of the original remote (new or used) here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=SLV-685HF&uuid=12875134515770 for the 685HF. I can not find the SLV 685HS is not a valid model that I can find at either Sony Parts or Remotes.com.

However, a refurbished remote for the SLV685HS is listed at: http://www.replacementremotes.com/SONY/Buy-RMT-V231A-RMTV231A-147555321-Video-Remote-Control.html . (E-bay also lists a few remotes for th SLV685HS; these listings may or may not still be valid.)

I hope this helps.

Settings disappear


I suspect the internal backup battery is faulty inside the machine. Sometimes it can be an actual battery soldered to the circuit board otherwise look for a low voltage high capaticance capacitor - for example 3.5v 10F. If you dont know how to check for these things then find a competant technician. Good luck.

Maytag gas oven won't light


After moving my oven out of the room to lay a floor, the oven wouldn't work when I put it back. Everything else worked (top burners, broiler).
I spent much time here and elsewhere on line trying to get enough knowledge to at least diagnose the problem, if not fix it. There is nothing worse than not knowing what is wrong when the repair guy comes, because you are then at their mercy, and some of them are less than merciful!
I took it apart, observed how the broiler worked, and assumed logically that the oven should work similarly.
The igniter on the bottom/oven part seemed slightly further away from the gas tube than the broiler igniter did. I just touched it and it moved!
As it turned out, the bracket that holds it in place had become jarred when I moved it, and had moved almost imperceptibly away from the gas tube.
This tiny difference was enough that the ignition didn't take place. Instead, after 4 clicks, the igniter shut off, a safety issue built into it, I suppose.
I attached the igniter to the gas tube with wire, readjusted and tightened the clamp, and Bob's your uncle, i have my oven back!
So, I guess the 'tip" is to simply make sure the igniter is close enough to the gas tube to actually ignite the gas.
As any repairman will tell you, the order to check things out in should always start with the simplest thing first!

Sony SLV-775HF


Hi, Sounds like a mechanical problem in the tape path which can be anything from the pinch roller, take up spool, foreign object (such as splicing tape lodged somewhere), brake or others. An indicator would be stretch tape. One way to check if the tape is being stretch is to rewind partially one of the tapes you have tried, eject it and open the flap/cover of the cartridge. There is a stub on one of the side of the tape that you have to push to open it and see the actual tape. Stretching if any would be clearly visible. Am afraid that you would need the services of a qualified technician for the actual repair not unless you are familiar with video tape mechanism. On the video head, offhand, I doubt if it needs replacement.Of course an on site technician would be in a far better position to diagnose it for you. Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

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.
