Question about Panasonic NV-HD680 VCR

Error code H01

Anyone have a definitive answer as to what exactly the error code H01 means when reported by my Panasonic VCR?

It's been a great machine but has recently died with this report.

Would like some help because the machine features a memory of what's on my entire tape collection!

It means no head motor rotation...The full meaning is given as: After Cylinder lock is detected the cylinder does not start rotating again even after tape unloading.
The remedy/ check is given as: Check the cylinder motor drive circuit... sorry no solution but at least you know whats wrong..

Wont do anything getting F30 error code

Do you mean F03? that error is known in Panasonic video products. It usually applies to the VCR, which means a mechanical fault; such as loading motor and/or mode switch. The switch itself would be on the main board under the VHS deck, and can be cleaned with special electronic spray cleaner, and electronic lubricant (after the cleaner), but for more reliable results, the mode switch may require replacement, which should be done by a workshop. If this is the only issue you have with your combo unit, it shouldn't cost too much to correct this problem. Either try cleaning the switch yourself (being careful when opening unit), or submit to workshop for quote and professional repair.

I have never heard of F30 as a video/DVD error code before. That error applies to some Panasonic air-conditioners and is a system error.

Yamaha dvd s-80 showing error code H01 when trying to play disc. What does this mean ?

The manual isn't much help, is it?

It seems the "H01" is some kind of common and fatal error code in many disc players and I have yet to find anyone who has paid the ransom, er cost, to get one fixed as it is cheaper and makes more economical sense to just buy a new unit...

Panasonic VCR model number NV-HD640B comes up with fault code H01 - what is this and how do I fix it?

You have a Panasonic K Deck Mechanism, you can search for more free info on it via Google. Meanwhile H01 means no drum motor or drive, it's to do with the main VCR head not going around.

I am trying to use a Panasonic AJ-D650, which hasn't been used for about 5 years. Initially the DVCpro tapes wouldn't load but they are now loading correctly. However if I press play or any other command...

most likely problem with the AJ-D650 is deteriorated electrolytic capacitors on the mechanism drive board. when these caps fail, the mechanism will not load completely, if at all. also check for bad capacitors in the signal path from the head drum. first and easiest step is to clean the heads; often a good cleaning will restore operation to a non-playing machine.

H01 Error

H01 means that there is an alignment problem or there's a faulty lens mechanism. Align it would cost about $50 . If there is a faulty part , then cost would start from about $80 labour plus part.
