Question about Car Audio & Video

4 Answers

Hi there, I have an Aiwa VHS Model HV-FX710K 6 head NiCam Hifi player that I bought at when it came out at least 10 years ago. It has been in my recording studio at home and is hardly used. We used it a few times recently and it was working beautifully but last night it refused to reject a cassette. It has anti theft code protection and that seems to work Ok. The video that is in it is new. I opened it up to have a look to see if anything was tangled but it looks like the tape has not been drawn into the head. If I press the eject button it switches the machine into standby mode and shuts down.

    Hi there,
    I didn't know there was a battery in this device.Where is it? is it one of those flat CR2025 ones that look 20mm diameter coins?
    Thanks,
    Eric

    Sorry, I didn't answer the question, it doesn't eject at all. it does make some mechanical noises when the eject button is pressed, so there is some response to the command. It also accepts the PIN for the lock out theft facility.If it is solely mechanical, I can't see any broken bits and it does attempt to eject. On looking at the mechanism with it open it doesn't look like the head and the tape are engaging when play is pressed.

    Hi,
    Where is the battery exactly in the machine?Is it a flat coin saped CR2025 kind of type?

    I have managed to get the cassette out by giving pressing eject and giving the large blue cog that drives the mechanism out eject a helping torque by inserting a screwdriver and giving it a nudge upon which it ejected the VHS cassette.
    However if one puts another in it won't eject it and the tape doesn't look like it gets transported into the head. To get it to eject I cut the tape as well as it looked like the tape was locked forward by the guide arms to the head. The only reason I want to get this machine going is because I bought it new and it was top of the range at the time and I have hardly used it and it looks like new. It may be purely mechanical,and I don't want to chuck it away virtualy unused.

This looks like a mechanical defect: the grease that was supposed to lubricate the mechanism has dried out and/or was contaminated by dust and the levers carrying the tape case seize.
You will have to completely clean and grease the mechanism. Do not use paint thinner or something similar, use gasoline to wipe the dried grease - and stay away from the rubber parts.

It is quite possible that the capstan motor is the loading motor drive and if the capstan motor has failed then the section will shut off. The servo motor of the capstan would have a IC failed or maybe an hall IC that is defective which will not turn the motor.
You can look into the mechanism to confirm , check if therer is any mechnical blocks , maybe check if the capstan is jammed , if so use some oil into the spindle to release.( near the pinch roller)
If so the servo motor assembly must be changed, the problem will be to procure the part or maybe swap from a condemed set.

Strange, so it will not eject at all, is that correct? Have you tried just taking the battery out of the recorder for at least 5 minutes and making sure there is no other power source, then placing it back in and trying again?

Nothing should block the eject feature on this device besides actual hardware malfunctioning.

Please reply back to my answer here once you have tried this and let me know, I will be watching for your response.

Thanks,
Tim

Sometimes when a cassette gets stuck like this, it is the door that opens and closes in the front of the machine. The cassette hits the door and puts the machine into a bind and it shuts off, to keep from burning a motor or something up. Now that you have the player open, try holding the front door open while pressing the eject button.

The manual is at Sony's web site since Sony bought out Aiwa in 2002 (and discontinued the brand in 2006).

Picture gets bad after playing a while


Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
They last about 6 years normally so you are overdue.
Buy a kit of belts for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself if you are handy with delicate mechanisms.
Hope ya fix it!

Aiwa HV-MX100 multiformat VCR won't power on...


Too little information to give any information / help / opinion. What actually happens? Does the Display come on properly? Do you hear any mechanical Noises? Like a motor whirring? Are you able to load a cassette into the machine? Does it get ejected automatically? As you say that the machine switches ON, I assume tyhat the Power supply cicuits are Ok, and this leaves us with the possibility that there is a mechanical problem.Is it that the machine was not used for a long operiod of months or years? If that is the case, in all probability the belts are damaged / broken / loose. I really need more info, please.

Our Aiwa MX100 doesn't play our pal system tapes


Just Clean the Video heads with a Wet Type Head Cleaner. Do 2 or 3 runs. Should clear up the problem.
