Question about Panasonic NV-HS1000 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Panasonic Video Recorder has stopped working

Hi on Saturday I rewound a video tape in my Panasonic NV-HS1000B video recorder but near the end it sounded like the machine was labouring to rewind it. I managed to eject the tape and all was fine a bit.
My video recorder has now started to make a high pitch noise which is the video drum running continually without a tape in the recorder.
I unplugged the video recorder and then plugged it back in and it appeared to be OK again.
I came downstairs this morning to video making the noise again so I unplugged. When I got home from work at least 10 hours later I plugged it back in again and the noise started straight away the digital display is showing E9 which I assume is some kind of error code. If I leave the video plugged in occasionally the noise stops and the clock display returns but within a few minutes the head starts spinning again and E9 is displayed.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    I have have now downlaoded a PDF Service Manual but the schematics are too small too read trying to source legible schematics and will see how I get on from there. I have found out from the service manual Code E9 indicates a Serial Clock Transmission failure between IC6001 to IC7501 I will be having another look over weekend.

Looks like some kind of sensor within the mechanical part, its seems like the mechanism doesnt return fully to its original point giving you these kind of malfunctions, I suggest to take it
to an authorized dealer for a complete check up & tune up

Changing video head of nv450en

I can't speak to your specific model VCR however, when I managed a VHS tape winding clean room in the 1980's, I had occasion to change heads on several occasions. It is not enough to know how to do it but, you will need special tooling designed for changing heads on your model of VCR. Physically changing the head is easy; a few screws and electrical connection. The problem is alignment. I worked on JVC recorders. JVC provided us (at great cost) an alignment tape. The tape about two or three minutes long. The tape is played and an oscilloscope is used to peak the signal. In theory once aligned, video tapes recorded on any properly aligned machine would play back on any other properly aligned machine. I practice, it did not always work because the of slight variations between different batches of alignment tapes. If one batch of alignment tapes was at the high end of the tolerance and another batch was at the low end and given the slight variations in the alignment process, tapes are not always playable in every properly aligned player. You can align you recorder on one of the tapes you previously recorded but, it will probably not work other players. Try it because at this point you have nothing to loose. You will need to get access to your recorder's service manual to find the test point on the recorder's mother board for your oscilloscope. JVC, and I presume other manufacturers, have waveform photos or drawings to assist you. Good luck!

VCR won't record, just ejects tape

You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

I have a VCR Panasonic NV - FJ623 and when I insert a video cassette into it for playback or recording purposes,it always ejects the video cassette.Can you help, please?

I'ts likely that the record sensor that pushes on the tab on the tape is bent or broken. Making the VCR think you are trying to record on to a protected tape.

F 04 - Tape stuck in recorder

F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading. You need to check the Load motor and it's timing.
You have by the way a K Mech model. This will help you find parts and other information on the mechanism.

Tape seems to be stuck to itself, I can't free it up

I think you are refering to the tape itself in the VHS cassette and it not being stuck inside the Video itself!
So if you are... don't use the spray... video cassettes have a brake system inside them. It sometimes breaks. If you turn the cassette upside down so you can see the white reels, inbetween them near the bottom (where the side label goes) you will see a small hole. If you put a pen inside it should release the reels so you can turn them with your finger. If they don't turn it may be broken. In which case... Get hold of a blank tape, the same length as yours. Carefully remove the screws (5) on the bottom. See how it's put together. Once you understand how the tape moves etc. Take out the reels with the tape, then dismantle your video and put the reels with the old tape into the new holder. It should work as good as new.
PS try not to touch with fingers the tape.
