This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My VHS player will occasionally accept the vhs tape but then it pulls out the film then turns off or ejects the tapes how can i fix it


Unfortunately there is some damage to the drive mechanism of the VCR. This will need to be fixed. I can't say what is causing it, but it is clearly not pulling the tape back inside the cassette before the eject action takes place.

How can I get an instruction manual?


Recording from tape is very similar to recording from the turntable, but you have to select tape as the source. There will be a button labelled something like PHONO/TAPE/AUX with which you select TAPE and then record as you would for a vinyl disc but you press play on the tape instead of playing a record. Here's something very similar which should help you. Good luck and I hope you get to save your memories.

CLASSIC RCA AUTOSHOT VHS CAMCORDER.(DSP3) PROBLEMS


The vhs camcorder has very complex mechanics and hold many traps for the inexperienced.

I suggest you begin by obtaining a standard vhs recorder and remove the cover to expose the interior and then study it. You will find the engineering and interior geography of your camcorder similar.
The round shiny barrel-shaped thing contains the record and playback video heads and the sound head is separate and looks like a larger version of what can be seen in a standard audio cassette recorder.

The interior must be extremely clean, the drive belts in good condition and the clutches and rubber rollers also in good order.

No sound after "recording" cassette


It obviously has a electronics problem that needs a Technician to work on it. The thing is people these days would rather throw items away than having them fixed- am I pod type mentality.
Combo units are not made to last very long as they are full of technology short cuts- they take a lot of time to fix.
If you want me to look at it, I am in the Chicago area.

Hi when i press record bottom my jvc camera says use cleaning cassette


The notice is saying that you have a dirty video head. If this display was not programmed into your camera you would have gone ahead and recorded an event only to find out later that you have a fuzzy of snowy result.If you do not have a cleaning cassette try playing a previously recorded clean cassette or even a brand new blank cassette for about 10 to 15 minutes. Playing a clean cassette has a slight cleaning action provided it has no fungus or dirt on it itself.
Mind you even a damaged or worn out head will give you the same notice - Use cleaning cassette !!.

Panasonic Auto-Logic 2line syst dual standard cassette needs help


If the unit answers reliably but isn't recording, it probably just needs new cassettes, new drive belts and a good head cleaning. If you can find a service shop that works on cassette decks, they could probably look at the machine for you. These are the same things you need to do to a stereo deck occasionally.

On the other hand, if the machine is not picking up at all sometimes, there may be electronic problems and you might have to check Panasonic's website for service options. Parts availability for something this old could be an issue.
