Question about Canon MV800i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I have the same problem but nothing has worked! There's a bit of a burnt smell inside the unit but it powers up ok - well to the point of the annoying 'eject' sounds, and the more frustrating problem of it not ejecting.

This is commonly a 'capstan motor' the part that drives the tape. This causes no eject, sometimes a burnt smell and blown internal fuses.
The motor needs replacing, possibly a fuse and a check for why it has a burnt smell.

I have a Jensen JCD2010 in my travel trailer. There is power to the unit, but there is no display. Nothing happens when I push the buttons and dials. The display is blank. Could it be that it is due to me...


It should have two power inputs.
One is connected to the battery, uses very little power to maintain presets, maybe an LED also. The other is via ignition switch.
My Jensen 2620 requires both inputs to function.

Motor overheats and stops. Battery loses half of power in 100 yards. Have sought repairs for unit since 2008 will not replace parts.


Hi. Sounds a bit like the motor has a short circuit in the armature. How old is the machine? How old are the batteries?
Remove one or both of the brushes, and try to smell the inside of the motor. A burnt out motor will have a strong smell of burnt varnish.
Is the machine still under warranty?
Another cause could be a seized or binding brake assembly. With the free-wheel lever released, can you easily push the machine along the ground?
Good luck. Neil.

Last night my wife accidently turned on the microwave with nothing inside. It probably ran for 15-20 minutes before I noticed a burning smell (burnt wiring) After opening the door I noticed the unit had no...


well I can tell you roughly what happened. You overheated the oven, as there was nothing inside to absorb the radiation. So the sensor shout off the power ( safety switch) It returns when the oven reduces in temperature. The burning may be due to internal damage to some of the insulation compound. It takes foreverf to get rid of smells from microwaves no matter what you use including vanill or some other anti stink medicine. The unit is probably OK but overtime will now begin to deteriorate and may even leak radiation to greater extent.

Dump it is my suggestion, but make sure it is damaged sufficiently to prevent dump rats from salvaging it and using it.

The unusual noise ( almost missed that) is damage to the rotation motor bearins that have been expanded and are now out of alignment.

Too risky!

Since you have a knob, I am assuming that this unit has manual controls that are mounted directly below the air conditioner on a ceiling pack. If you smell burned wiring, remove the inside shroud to access the 120VAC connections in the unit. Check these connections for OK, if they look burnt, cut them back and reattach them (be sure to turn the breaker off first). Try the AC again.

If those connections look fine, then remove the upper cover from the unit. Access the capacitors on the side of the unit and check them for ok. If any one of them looks burnt, replace it. These two places are usually the only place that you will get a burned plastic smell.

Hope this helps,

Stopped working smells like something burned?


If this is a ducted unit with a wall mount thermostat, remove the inside cover from the AC unit. There is a silver box with the electronics inside. Remove this box and remove the cover. Visually inspect the connections where the 120VAC connects. If that looks ok, then check the relays on the printed circuit board. If these look burnt, replace the control box. If they look ok, check to see if there is power coming in to the unit. If not, check the breakers and make sure they are ok.

Thanks,

Jeff

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.
