Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

2 Answers

VCR counts down through all channels endlessly.

This Panasonic VCR (model NV-F66A) after many years faithful service and regular maintenance, has suddenly decided to count down through all the channels and then start all over again. Pressing any of the buttons on the machine will arrest this but the function of the button is ignored. The remote is also ignored, unless there is a momentary pause in the channel countdown. Sometimes the only way to turn it off is by pulling the mains plug out. I really want to fix it because you cannot buy a quality stereo VCR with a die-cast alloy transport chassis like this anymore.

    Ronaldo_ross had an excellent solution, but it appears that my fault is caused by something more than a stuck button. Is anyone familiar with this particular model? It is one of the best VCRs Panasonic ever made. The remote has a jog shuttle control, the buttons on the VCR are situated on the door that drops down for insertion/removal of the cassette and are therefore protected from dust and dirt. It has dual faders for stereo audio line input and a VU meter. I could go on...!

There's nothing you can do, the processor has failed, it's stuck in scan mode. Take it to a repair shop, the entire control board must be replaced and finding a replacement part will be difficult but not impossible.

The channel button is stucked closed. Since it is counting down, it is the channel down button. This is also the reason why it is ignoring everything else. Visually check the button and around it .see if there is something causing it to be constantly depress. You can try spraying it with electronic cleaner if you don't see any mechanical anomally.

    It is not buttons jammed on the remote, (I took one of the batteries out), and the buttons on the machine are clean as a whistle, however I did spray some CRC Contact Cleaner on them externally - to no avail. The buttons on the VCR are on a little door that drops down, and get very little use. If I hold the 'up' button down, the channel countdown reverses and then continues to count down upon release.

I have a Panasonic NV-FJ600 VCR which ejects every cassette which is loaded , and the two guide rollers remain at the rear of the machine and do not move forward to engage the tape .


If you mean the guides are on either side of the head drum, and the carriage is in eject position, the mechanism is out of alignment. Re-alignment and re-timing may require a workshop service by a professional Panasonic agent.

The bad news is the likely cost(s) involved if parts are replaced.

The NV-FJ600A VCRs were good models a few years ago, one of the first 'super long play' series Panasonic launched.

They use the Z-mech series of decks. These are not impossible to re-align/re-time, unlike previous mech designs, but depending on the extent of wear/damage, can prove uneconomical for a budget VCR which would now be close to 10 years old.

Panasonic NV HD620 Error F06


You appear to have a model that uses the K Deck Chassis.
F06 in that case stands for: "Mechanism locks after unload". The cause being either the loading motor or the carriage alignment.

To Connect AV Cable from Panasonic VCR to Sony 29 inches


You can either connect the antenna output of the VCR to TV ant in or hookup the audio/video outputs from VCR to audio/video TV inputs. If using the antenna output you need to sellect channel 3 or 4 to view VCR. If using the adio/video lines you need to select the line input on TV to view VCR.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

Panasonic NV-SJ205 Changing Rf ?


ok. This is a really easy one.
All you have to do is hold down the menu button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds, If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds. If that doesnt work hold down the power button on the actual vcr unit for 15 seconds. The first method should work for Panasonic's fine.
This will then display your current rf output.
You can then change the output by using the up and down arrows or the channel up and down button on your remote or the vcr unit.
Press menu button to save or the same button you used to bring up the rf opposition eg power button on remote or the unit.

all the best. Top tech

Nv fj630 can't power up


Had the same problem with my one. After a lot of time spent testing etc and finding no low volts of any value present and looking on the web, I found that Panasonic tend to use a similar design of power supply for a lot of models and there appears to be, after a number of years in use, a weak link in the design/use with the voltage regulator. For this model, the regulator generic part number is STRG 6352 and the Panasonic part no is C5HACZZ00002. In the UK it is available from:-
http:/www.chsinteractive.co.uk/electrical-components/misc/nvfj620b-c5haczz00002-ic-pana.htm
If you need a service manual for this model, which is helpful for checking things/disasembly/assembly, you can obtain a free one from:-
http://www.reptips.dk/Reptips/NV-FJ620.pdf
As a note the panasonic replacement from chs came with the pins bent correctly, so it fitted directly after I had cut the old one out.

Best of luck!

NATIONAL NV-370


Yes, the NV 370 was among the most produced and popular VCR machines by Panasonic. Ifthere is no color, only 2 reasons i can think of - 1. Check the Colour / B&W switch at t5he rear of the machine.It might accidently be on 'B&W' mode. 2. Clean the video Heads. Dirty Heads also show as B&W picture on this machine. 3. There is a internal circuitry fault (tho' very rare in this machine. If it is a circuit fault, then there is nothing you can do, unless you know Solid state Electronics servicing. And even after that, it may become difficult to service, as spares may not be available. Machine is a 20 year old model.
