On mine, battery compartment is just above the red "button" on the left. You can manually operate the adapter by turning the chrome button on the top of the unit.

My Panasonic DMR E S45V just stopped working. The Error message is F04. The DVD door won;t open, the VHS door won;t close.


Check the servo unit to see if the actuator is changing modes when press the buttons. If one door is open the other will not function either.

I have a sanyo dvd/vhs player and when you push the eject button to eject the dvd player it won't open. Help!


If you take off the top cover you might find that a drive belt that moves the tray is either off or broken. They are cheap to replace you just need to measure the diameter in MM and then enter "drive belt XXmm" into Google go for the nearest size to your measurement.

I have JVC compact VHS,videomovie GR-AX35. My probelem with this unit I can't put on the power. When I open it the unit trip-off. Actually I have change the battery to a new one.


This is due to a fault in the servo system / control system. If there is a error in the loading then due to the loading being off mode the controller can trip off power.
Also check the power section and the capstan/drum motor section.
Check if loading is back to parking mode. If not unwind and allow the loading to park and see if the power latches. if so check the loading motor drive .

Doesn't seem to have a battery in the adapter - hard to insert tape then it does nothing


You must first put on the battery so that the mtor reurns back to the return mode so that the VHS-C can be placed . Once the door is shut after placing the cassette, the tape is wound up and it becomes just like a regular VHS tape. Now if this is not happening there is always a small gear on the back side with which you can manually wind to bring it up to the desired level. If not the motr is stuck or the pulley is running loose. You can open up and check inside , it is a simple mechansim with a switch to activate and return. Check the motor and gears. reset the drive by removing, check the battery voltage to the motor and your adapter will work. hope you check this out. Good day

That may be what you will have to do, in this case, unless you can somehow get that switch to work. I don't understand why the motor continues to run, but it's probably a broken plastic piece or other gear part that's not functioning. When you take the cassette apart, try to look for any broken parts, or loose components that you can reseat. You may have to end up buying another adapter. Wish I knew more to tell you, but that's all I can think of.

I'm having difficulty putting a charge on the battery on my panasonic ag 188...the battery hasn't been used in years. Some change is happening when I charge the batt onboard the camera (plugged into the...


I had the same problem. I hope you have a battery charger. The many older batteries I have needed charging, but they wouldn't hold a charge when I tried to charge them with the battery charger. My batteries were the kind that had a memory, and I guess that the battery memories are dead. So, I saw that I had a double ended power cord that came with my camera. I took the battery out of the camera and saw a power-in hole. I just tried connecting the double ended power cord to the camera and to a power hole I found on the battery charger. It worked and gave power to the camera. It did not explode. I could not find a manual on any of the many websites. I think that the camera I bought (Panasonic Palmcorder IQ PV-IQ403) doesn't exist in the available manuals. Maybe you can find a double ended power cord and a battery charger on line or in a store.

The following information might be useful to others. The camera cassette door will not open without having the power on to the camera. The camera connects to a TV with RCA cords.

My camera power switch has 2 settings. Use the camera setting to use the camera to record and see what you are recording displayed on the TV. You must change the power switch to the VCR setting in order to play back the recording and see it on the TV. Change the switch back again to use the camera. (You can also see the playback through the viewfinder.)

My camera has a remote control which is stored in a slot. I found that the battery is in a tiny sliding door. I had to use a screwdriver to gently dislodge it from the case, my fingernail was not strong enough. The movable tab had to be pushed inward to release the catch. The coin battery was not corroded. (CR-2025)

In order to play a VHS-C tape, you must have a VHS PlayPak. The cassette door will not open unless you have a battery loaded into the cassette. When the door opens, you can insert the VHS-C tape into the opening. The VHS PlayPak holder is the same size as a regular VHS tape. It can be found on-line.

Why does the VCR ejects my tape?


The VHS PlayPak adaptor uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHS-C tape into the adaptor and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink-wrap has been removed from the battery.
