Question about Sanyo VWM-800 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Hi. My VWM-800 worked fine in every respect yesterday but today it will not play/FF/RW nor can I get a reponse on the "menu" screen. It will still load a cassette and eject it and I can hear the motor activate when I turn the power on - but no tape travel. Any suggestions? I know this unit is way overdue for a breakdown but it's been the best VCR I ever owned and was the gift of a friend now deceased. Thanks. \r\n-BBB

You can attempt to do a full power off. Unplug the power cord. While unplugged press and hold the power button twice for 30 seconds each time to dissipate any residual power.Now plug it in and turn it on.
If this doesn't resolve the issue, I'm afraid that you are due for a new unit.

Sincerely,
Mark

Hi i am getting error "Er:03" on the VCR screen. Cant FF/RW/play/eject.


Possibility of mechanism fault inside the VCR, which might include tape damage. Can't answer directly about the 03 code, without knowing make or model number as they all use different fault codes.
Taking the top cover off might show up what's happened.

Turn Sound ON, now it's "Q SOUND OFF""


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.

How do you access the timer functions, etc. on a Sanyo vwm-800 with a universal remote? Basic functions work, but nothing happens when I press the Menu button and I don't know how else to access the other...


With all universal remotes you may have to try several codes before you get the right one for the video. Several codes for Sanyo will operate some functions, but not all. You just have to keep trying them all till you find one that will allow you to operate the menu button!

Setting the clock on a pioneer deh-p6600 car radio


1. using the Source button put the unit in "stand-by" which is where only the clock is displayed but no radio, cd is playing just clock.
2. press and hold the "F" or function button will get you into the set--up mode where you toggle thru the choices using the ff/rw buttons until "CLK ADJ" appears press the display button and that will bring up the blinking clock which you adjust hours with the same FF/RW arrows when you get the correct time hit "F" button to return to menu.

How to unfreeze mp3 player


We have a toshiba gigabeat f20. today it worked fine, listened to it for hoursbefore turning it off. turned it on within a hour to play it and got a blank screen. nothing in the environment could have caused this. battery had been replaced a week before. so, took the case off to opened it and take a look. realized that one of the plug ins for the screen had come loose or slightly lifted inside. it did not totally unplug, just not pressed down tight. pushed it back in. put the case back on. hit the power button and it's back on, nothing that had been previously loaded was lost.
