Question about Sony DHR-1000 DVHS VCR

DHR 1000 problems

Can you offer some advice ? My DHR 1000 suddenly started fast forwarding in the play mode. I couldn`t stop it.
Any button I push on the machine resulted in fast forward ! UGH.
However, when using my editing program on my attached PC, I am able to control all functions, except eject tape.
Any suggestions ? I`d greatly appreciate your help.

Sounds like a keyboard problem, but check all the electrolytic caps -- bad caps sometimes produce strange symptoms.

    Capacitors are electronic components that are used to isolate DC voltages while passing signals to other circuitry, or to filter any ripple on DC power supplies. Their internal construction uses a liquid electrolytic, and as they age, it dries out and their function is reduced. You may need to take the deck to a local repair shop to have the caps properly tested and replaced if needed.

How do I use the index mark function?

Index marks work when the record function is activated, it puts a signal at the start of the recording. So when you put several tv shows on one tape, you can find them. Most video's have a scan button or index button, sometimes it's on a menu. When activated the video will go into fast forward or reverse till it finds an index mark. It will then go into play mode. Some videos will stop playing after a short period and the start searching again, unless you press play. Others have index numbers so you can search for the third recording for example. Commercial videos films etc do not have index marks on.

The timer/display control IC501, located on the FM 26 board (right behind the display tube) is likely bad.
the part number is 8-759-368-84.It will NOT be an easy part for an average consumer to replace. You would be better off looking for a complete FM 26 board A7066705A.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play

The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Recently repaired one of these with what appeared to be a power supply problem; found several defective capacitors on the drive board. The symptoms were similar to what you are seeing.
