I have the Sony vmex280p. Can power it up via mains adaptor lead and it works (playing back a tape) for a short time then stops ??

Sounds as if there is friction within the mechanism somewhere. Have you tried to fast forward the tape, then rewind it fully ? This may loosen things up a little.
Another possibility is that the tape itself has issues and is sticking within the cassette - have you tried with alternative tapes ?

New canon 6220 printer will not power up has error light on

Try to reset the Ink carthridges and check for any hidden packing material or tape. Often the manufacturer will tape down parts that can become loose in transport. They will restrict the free movement of print heads and other moving parts.

Servo init failure stalled xy

Hi Edouard

This sounds like the picker has failed to complete the power on self test (POST).
This may be due to a damaged library or simply due to a tape blocking the picker movement.

Try opening the library to make sure your tapes are all properly located in the magazines and have not fallen out.
Also try gently moving the picker to see if you can locate any other obstructions. Be very careful as you obviously do not want to break the picker or anything else accidentally.

Stop when playback and fast forward and rewind, and display"31286

I don't have the specific manual for your model, but typically this symptom is an indication that the movement sensors have a problem. These units are designed to detect movement of each of hte hubs (tape actually) and to shutdown if either are not "moving". This is to prevent the tape from getting damaged. Improper tape loading (the machine loading not your insertion of the tape) can cuase this. This usually can be fixed without parts. The unit needs a good cleaning and alignment check. Please take this to a repair shop. I estimate a $50-$75 charge for this repair.

Diskette drive failure

* the 'A:' drive is not getting any power -- check that the power-cable from the power-supply to the back of the drive is connected
* the "data' ribbon-cable between the motherboard and the drive is not fully-connected -- check both ends
* the "data' ribbon-cable is wrongly-connected, i.e., "pin one" on the ribbon-cable is _NOT_ connected to "pine one" on the diskette-drive -- if the red lamp on the front of the diskette-drive is _always_ on, then this is the symptom of this "cross-connect".
* the diskette-drive physical mechanisms (that move the read-write head, and spin the media) have failed.
* wrong configuration within BIOS-setup -- be sure to select '3.5' and '1.44MB', not '5.0', and not '1.2MB'.

Zenith vr9760 will not play

There are many reasons for this, but more information is required to be able to diagnose the problem. First, does the tape move inside the machine or is there no movement other than loading? If the tape is moving, try using the FF scan mode and report whether or not video is seen. Does the tape load properly? Do you get sound with no video or nothing?

Please update this with that info and I should be able to provide you with a solution. Please note that most problems are related to slipping belts or dirty heads. You can try a cleaning tape if the tape is moving inside the machine.

Metal sleeve

Below we have represented a picture of the now commonly used 3.5" floppy diskettes. The below representation is what the back of a floppy diskette looks like. As you can see there are four main visible parts:
floppyd.gif First, the top left of the back of the floppy there is a small tab. This tab enables the floppy disk to be switched from write protected and un-write protected. Move the tab to the top position, creating a hole, makes the disk write protected. This means that nothing can be written, erased or deleted from the diskette. Moving the tab to the bottom position allows the disk to be un-write protected, which means the diskette can be written too, erased, and or have information deleted from the diskette. Some diskettes, which are generally cheaper diskettes, will be missing this tab. To write information to the diskette you will have to place a piece of scotch tape over the hole.
Second, the top right hand of the back of the floppy you will notice a small hole. This tells the computer if the diskette within the computer is a High Density diskette.
Third, you will notice the circular metal disk in the middle of the floppy diskette. This is used to rotate the magnetic medium within the floppy disk casing.
Fourth, you will see a metal door which can be moved left and then will snap back to its original position. This door is used to allow the read/write head within the floppy drive to have the capability of accessing the magnetic medium within the casing. Once the diskette is removed, this door will snap back into position, helping to prevent anything from getting on the magnetic medium and destroying it.
Below is a representation of a 5 1/4" floppy commonly used in 1980's and is generally no longer used today. The 5 1/4" floppy diskette was really floppy (flimsy) when compared to the 3.5" floppy diskette.
floppyd3.gif As you can notice in the above illustration, the 5 1/4" floppy does not have many involved components. First, you will notice the Write protection tab which would be present if the diskette allowed information to be written to it. Placing a piece of tape over the hole or if the hole was not present would make the diskette write protected.
Second, you should notice the large hole in the center of the floppy diskette. This hole allowed the platter within the floppy to be rotated allowing the information to be read from the write access hole.
Third, you should notice the Index hole, this hole was the computer's way of knowing where the starting point of the sector was on the diskette by physically having a hole punched in the film disc within the plastic casing.
Finally, you should notice the write access hole. This is the location which information would be read from as the disc within would rotate. However, because there was no protection like that found on the 3.5" floppy diskette, the 5 1/4" floppy diskette was generally protected by placing it within a protective sleeve.

Hope this helps ya/Let us know ,ok Thank you for using dont for get to Vote.
