Mini DV Tapes Won't Play

Help!!! My DSR-11 has stopped playing mini dv tapes. When I load a mini dv tape into the machine and press the play button the tape loading light starts blinking and the tape is ejected. Full sized DV tapes play normally. The problem only exists with mini tapes. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance.

it seems your tracking needs to be looked at.also have a look at the tape open front section button at side slide open with your finger.look at the tape toward the light,if the edge of the tape is a bit wavey not straight you will need an alighnment as well.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end


You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

When I try to play PAL tapes, there is no picture


You also need a PAL television or monitor to be able to view them. If you don't have a PAL compatible monitor or TV it will not work because the resolution and scanning is very different than an NTSC monitor. Your canon camera is probably designed only for NTSC use if it was sold in North America and can't be used for PAL use.

DSR 11 playback problem


Pete, we are having the same problem with 2 dsr-11s.

The fix for us was the "auto repeat" switch on the back of the unit. It was "on" please turn it off.

The other idea was that the tape tension is very sensitive in the units, try exercising the tape (though exorcise might be good too) by fast-forwarding then rewind the tape start to finish. Tape that were tightly wound at the factory can cause this proble as well. Good Luck. Greg VA

Panasonic AG-DV2000 Mini DV VCR will not play large DV tapes


the "dv sensor"is actually a mechanical lever built into the cassette housing that moves the reel tables to match the reel spacing on mini or full-size DV tapes. check to see if this assembly is free to move. if it binds up, the reel tables may not move as far as they need to, and can cause problems similar to the one you're seeing. to inspect the mechanism, you need to remove the cassette housing. if you don't have a service manual, get a tech to help -- it's a delicate procedure for the inexperienced.

Tapes not in 24p play for 2 seconds than stop, WHY?


The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape. Good Luck, this is a nice machine!
