Question about Sharp VC-A411U VHS VCR

1 Answer

After recording using automatic timer to stop the recording all lights blink rapidly and nothing works. Did a power cycle, and it worked the first time but I recorded again and it seized up again but now nothing will work after another power cycle. Have a cassette stuck in it and can't get it out. It is 1 years old. Serial # 109733919.

    Somehow the age of the VCR got changed from 10 years to 1 year, but I don't think this will change the diagnosis.I have tried the power cycling numerous times without success, so I guess it is a lost cause. Thanks for response.

Yikes, that is very unfortunate, it sounds like internal hardware malfunction for sure. Try to power cycle again, completely unplugging for at least 30 seconds and hitting a few buttons while unplugged to drain capacitors. Then plug in, immediately turn on, and right away try to EJECT the tape in there. Let me know if you can at least get that out. From there, since it is such a new machine, you will want to contact Sharp and try to file a warranty claim on this VCR, it is definitely experiencing hardware failure.

Let me know!

    Oh haha, I figured it couldn't be 1 year old, but was thinking possibly you found it somewhere :). So sorry about that, lucking VCRs can be head for a very low price on ebay... I'd just replace it for sure.

    Also, if you get a chance, please make sure to come back to the question here and click the Accept This Solution link otherwise I get no credit for the help, thanks so much.

    Thanks

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace it

Flashing green light


Did you try this yet

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
POWER/TIMER Indicator
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,

Mitsubishi TV WD-62527 will not turn on


Hi there, this is most commonly known as power board failure in the industry. the capacitors are blown. if you are experienced in inspecting circuit boards this will be helpful. you will have to disassemble and pull the power board and preform a break point test. the bown capacitors are easily picked out. they will be swollen and discolored. If you are not comfortable with disassembling this set, i suggest a service call. just tell the tech you are experiencing a power board failure.

the dlp will most likely need a qualified mits repair center to take over for you. repairing that set is pretty involved. and the parts you would need are not available to the public.
on your 48" CRT projection check the DM module for 4 vented 1000mf 16v capacitors. replacement should get you tv working great

Problems with Whirlpool dishwasher model GU1500XTKB0


will these units (silo and jtrip) start back on their own? if so, it is likely they are heating the water.
otherwise it sounds like a logic board, unless there is a defective door switch or sensor issue.
electronics seem to be a recurring problem with whirlpool.
i would ask whirlpool (electorlux) to either buy it back or fix it.
good luck
