Question about Sharp VC-A410U VCR

1 Answer

I have a Sharp VC-A410 and when I try to press play then nothing happens. I tried pressing play, rewind, and fast forward and it makes the sounds like it is processing my requests but nothing shows on the screen. All that is seen on the screen is snow. I could not even turn to AV from the remote or the VCR itself. What could be the issue??

It is likely a defective rubber product, ie belt or idler tire. Here are some links to a company that still carries VCR parts and supplies. Hope this helps.

Hi, I am seeking the region free code for a Samsung DVD-D530? Thanks!


I tried the above steps, but each time when restarting the DVD player, it said 'reset' and asked for the language to be selected again. Pressing the "Fast Forward Fast Rewind Fast Forward Up Down" sequence caused the player to lock up and require powering off at the wall.
I found on another web site that there are different initial sequences. Once I use the one for Region 2, it worked fine.

I found the instructions below on another web site, but it worked for me...
  • Make sure there is no disc in the player.
  • Turn on the player (you can use remote control or front panel, it doesn't matter)
  • Wait for "No Disc" message to appear on the TV screen.
  • Press the Repeat button on remote (plain, not A-B).
  • Press the correct sequence of buttons of remote according to the original region code of your player (it's on the sticker on the back panel of the player). FF = fast forward, FR = fast rewind.
    • Region 2 players: FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
    • Region 3 players: FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
    • Region 4 players: FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
    • Region 5 players: FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
    • Region 6 players: LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
  • If you pressed the correct sequence, a small white number 0 will appear somewhere on the top right of the screen. The white number 0 of the same font and size as the "No Disc" message, so don't confuse with the red "not allowed" sign that would appear when you press a function that's not available.
  • Turn the player off and on again, then you can pop in a DVD of any region and watch immediately.
Good luck!

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Help it's going to fast


Your camera has a capstan servo problem which is more than likely being caused by the capstan motor itself.Nothing you can do youself,would suggest bring to service but reccomend getting estimate before repairing.
