This is an indication of a motor failure. There are a number of sensors inside that watch for tape movement. If any of them fail, the machine shuts down to prevent damage to the tape or the machine. This is a relatively simple repair, but will require an alignment. This unit should be brought to an authorized Sony service center.

ERROR CODES E24 ~& E4 54037380 ON MY DVD RECORDER, CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THESE MEAN, THANKS


If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.

Stops during rec, error code E - 5 in display


E-5 is a "reel lock" error. This means that one or both of the reels that move the tape through the deck have stopped turning and are not sending a feedback signal to the system control cpu. This deck does use a drive belt, and has a clutch mechanism to transmit power to the reels. Check the belt and clutch for wear (the belt has a tensioner; the tension screw may be loose.).
