SOURCE: Sony SLV-N71 VCR makes a rattling sound (ff, rew)

I make no claim to being any kind of an expert techie but it sounds to me like there are one or more loose or badly worn parts inside your machine. If you haven't had a look at the innards, try that. Loose things can usually be re-secured and, sometimes, worn parts can be replaced.

As your "free service" is not free I solved the problem by throwing the item into the trash.

SOURCE: Sony SLV-640HF VHS VCR ejects any tape after a couple of seconds

While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.

This should be a labor only repair.

SONY CAMERA RATE MODEL NO.N50


To my knowlege, Sony did not make an N50 camera. They did make a VCR, the SLV-N50 and ratings for that can be found here:

Nikon made an N50 film SLR beginning in 1994. 30 reviews on the Nikon N50 can be found here:

I have an RYOBI 24V String Trimmer - RY24200. At the same time the head broke & stopped spinning, I heard something loose in the head. When I took the head apart I found 2 screws had come loose from...


This is a very late answer to your question, but I had exactly the same problem with the screws rattling around in the head. I took the casing apart very slowly because I figured there was a spring for the swivel mechanism that might fly out. The spring you describe lays in a groove on the casing piece that attaches to the shaft close to the head casing. You will see near the top of the head casing, a small, plastic pin that will sit in the end of this spring to hold it in place. Carefully set the head piece back into the shaft casing to prevent the spring from popping back out. I did this repair in about 10 minutes and I'm not even that technically adept.

One piece was found lose in the sony vcr (sony slv-n51)


My best advice is you should look for the service manual for the model. I would try Manuals in PDF for this, though they do charge, I have used them and they are a good company. Though you could try a web search to see if you can get it free first.
The reason I recomend you get one is not just that you will be able to identify the part straight away, but rather I suspect that the mechanism may have gone out of sync with the damage. And if it has you will have a hell of a job setting the mode switch without a the manual. And if that is not set right then all sorts will go wrong!

Sony SLV-940HF automatically ejects tape.


1st try a different tape.
If it's the same, listen carefully for unusual noises, clunks, grinding, etc. when the tape goes in. Is something binding?

With the tape out, look inside the door, see if you can spot anything in there that shouldnt be there such as a small toy, money, playing card, sandwich, bits of food? Those are the usuals.

Turn the vcr upside down and holding the tape door open, tilt it so if there was a foreign object in there, it would fall out.

SLV 940 HF


Is it having trouble either loading or ejecting the tape? If so, then something is probably awry in that mechanism. Take the top cover off and watch a load or eject operation. If tape isn't fully loaded, and tape threaded, then an error condition will result, as will be the case if it won't eject. Causes include a broken piece of the load mechanism (also called cassette carriage or carriage mechanism), broken or cracked gear. If the mechanism is gear driven, timing is critical, just being out of time one tooth will foul things up. There are often marks on the gears which must line up exactly in a particular mode as specified in manufacturer service literature. Most VCRs since the early '90s are disposeable, very prone to breakage, in contrast to early units which were made like tanks, costing $400 plus.

SLV-660HV Will not load


If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
