Question about Sony PVW-2800 VCR

1 Answer

Rec Inhibit Light remains ON

I have a PVW2800 with a Rec Inhibit problem. Recently, whenever a tape is inserted, the Rec Inhibit light comes on, it doesn't matter if the tape's tab is in Rec Inhibit or not. It does this with any tape inserted now.

Is there an easy fix for way to disable the Rec Inhibit?

Thanks,
Jaeson K.

The easiest way I know to fix the problem is just play tapes. Sounds like a bad switch contacts. clean the contacts or replace the switch. I don't know of any shortcuts. Sorry

Delta CL 180 model charger turns on when you plug in and the yellow light comes on but when you put the battery in to charge the lights go out?


If all lights go out after the battery is inserted, the charger has entered pre-charge mode. In approximately 5-10 minutes, the orange and red lights should turn on indicating that fast charge has been initiated. If all lights remain off after 15 minutes, remove the battery. The orange light should glow. Reinsert the battery. If the orange light goes out when the battery is inserted and all lights remain off for 15 minutes the battery should be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Tape doesn't stay down, keeps popping back out of cassette, on my Sony CCD-TVR608. Any ideas?


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Recording


You can only record from the radio or CD player. There's no microphone input on this model. Just insert a tape and press the REC button. If you're recording from the CD, it begins playing when you press the REC button. If you need a copy of the manual you can download it here.

I have a Quantum SDLT 320 drive in a Dell 2800 server that has the yellow attention light stuck on. It is performing backups successfully in Veritas and giving no errors from Veritas or anywhere else. Can...


Sounds like it may be the cleaning light (far right)

You need to use a cleaning tape in the drive (they do expire after either 20 or 40 uses so use a brand new one to be sure)

That should clear the light. If it comes back on after another backup then try using the cleaning tape again and then a brand new tape for the backup.
If the light comes on again then the drive will need to go for repair as the head is knackered.

Try www.tape-drive-repair.com for this as they are pretty good price wise and also offer a 1 years warranty on their drives and repairs

DVX100A panasonic camera tape mechanism not working


You can open the cassette cover and spray inside the upper left side of mechanism(closer to the back) with contact cleaner spray,because there is a rec inhibit switch.If it's not damaged and just dirty you solve your problem ,but if is damaged it needs replacement.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
