Question about Panasonic AJ-D230H DV/Mini DV VCR

1 Answer

Error E-11 Hi there. Many thanks for your kind reply on Fixya. I am not very technically skilled and I just wondered if you perhaps briefly could provide me with a link where I can read about "electrolytic capacitors" as I simply do not know what it is. Furthermore: do you have any idea about wheater it will be a expensive repair, if I can find a tech. who can pepair it for me? Or is it a quite basic operation? Kind regards from Anders

Expensive or not depends on what the tech charges for his time. it's not a difficult repair, but it does involve removal and replacement of some very small parts, and some delicate soldering.

Deck 2 is not seating the tape in positon nether is it eject it. If the small white rotating wheel has lost sone it teeth, there, it is loose and unable to hold it positon to create that pu;;ey effect....

fixing this kind of problem is not an easy task this includes mechanical timing of loading mechanism and is complicated task .I would suggest to better bring it to a service center or ask the help of a skilled be honest to you this is not a DIY issue this requires a bench and actual repair.It is very difficult to give instruction just by chat .It has to be actual observation of the mechanical system movement to identify which gears to be adjust and have it in correct timing...good luck!and thank you for using fixya...

Transfer uverse to vcr

make a small drawing of he back of the vcr and t.v. take this to an electrical shop that is your most local you are much much better off going to a samll independent shop as aposed to a larger chain of shops, they are generally more knowledgeable and have usually been in that job much longer and will direct you straight to the type of lead you need ,there are lots of different types of lead on older model vcrs, in the uk we have a 21 pin scart lead that does all jobs,but goto small independent shop and get it ight first time,please leave feedback

Error E-11

most common cause for this problem is defective electrolytic capacitors on the mechanical interface board. a good electronic tech should be able to replace them.

VCR won't run.


Based on your description, I would suspect that the tape is not fully engaging/wrapping itself around the video head. This is a common issue with VCRs. This is caused by a slipping belt that drives the gears for the spreader arms. The belt is normally located top right of the mechanism/assembly and can be anywhere between 3-4 cm. You need to open the unit, remove the belt and purchase a replacement. The slipping belt would serve "as per sample".

This of course would require that you be a bit familiar with electromechanical components, a bit of electronics and use of common tools. Considering that it might be a bit tricky being a combo unit, perhaps seeking the services of a qualified professional would be your safest bet.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Trouble shooting

You don't give any other details, but perhaps the following will help.

First, if you haven't tried this already, unplug the VCR for 30 seconds or so to do a reset on the logic circuitry.

Next, check for a mechanical failure, such as a tape stuck in the machine, a cracked or broken gear in the tape load or threading mechanism, or a something bent in the tape carriage (this is what you stick the tape into, and it in turn pulls it into the machine). Anything awry in these areas will mean no operation. A broken gear, or if the gears are just one tooth off will likely cause a no function error condition

Other possible problems include: Malfunction of an optical sensor, power supply not supplying the proper voltages, or a logic circuit problem.

These latter problems will take technical savvy for sure.

VCRs of the last 10+ years are essentially disposable and not economically feasible to repair, so if the problem is rather involved, toss the old rig and buy a new one.

E2 error

Something might've been broken in the forced tape removal. VCR tape carriage (the cassette unit) assemblies are rather delicate, easily broken, in contrast to the units in early VCRs (from the '80s or early '90s). Use of force in tape removal... can break stuff, or perhaps get the gear timing fouled up. Take the top cover off, look for broken pieces of this assembly. If this assembly has gears on the right side, this obviously means it is gear driven. Timing is set by lining up marks on the gears, in most cases. Setting this might be tricky- service literature will tell you how to set this, and in what mode the marks line up.

Flashing "3" on VR330 front panel

A possible bad sensor, bad mode switch, mechanism gear timing off, or perhaps a missing or incorrect voltage from the power supply may cause this problem. I don't know what the "3" indicates, this may be an error code which would help a technician with the proper literature diagnose. Unfortunately, most modern electronics, VCRs, TVs and such are of the disposeable variety. Costs of repair, if you can even find a service center, are usually not economical. If you by chance have some technical savvy, you might be able to trace the problem down.
