For Info Lithium Battery only

Hi. Great machine, but today when I attempted to rewind a cassette that I had shot, I got the message on the screen, "For infoLITHIUM Battery Only." Once that message is displayed, the machine goes dark.

What's the solution to this one?

Thanks,
Doc

I was having the same problem with a sony GV-D1000 which I don't even use a battery with. I use an AC adapter. Someone suggested that the contacts might be dirty, so I unplugged the small connector that plugs into the back of the deck and wiped it hard with my t-shirt. It seems to work fine now. SO try cleaning the contacts (wherever your adapter or battery connects with the deck or camera.)

That just states to use a infolithium battery, so if you have a battery that is not a genuine sony battery for the unit this will be displayed at times if your battery indicator shows that there should have been more charge to the unit then charge the battery to full again and try again so the indicator is displaying the battery life correctly.

the InfoLithium is a lithium ion battery which can exchange data such as battery consumption with compatible electronic equipment.

your vcr only operates with the InfoLithium ion batteries, if you have tryed a different battery please get a genuine sony infolithium battery.

so if you charge and it happens again then see if you can find someone to use a voltage meter on the battery to make sure the battery is connecting properly to the unit and that there is no spikes in the batteries power.

After the tape rewinds and then I push the eject button, the tape doesn't rewind back into the cassette before ejecting.


This should also be happening when you just eject the cassette without rewinding.
NOT KNOWING THE BRAND, MODEL, OR NUMBER WE CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH!!!!

Best guess is a belt needs to be replaced.

My VHS tape is stuck and won't eject or plsy


The transport mechanism ff/rewinds and drives the tape back into the cassette when eject is used.

Most likely a bad belt or the drive idler wheel (rubber or geared). Unit would have to be taken apart to "see" what is not happening.

I was rewinding a tape and the VCR just stopped. When I hit either play or rewind the VCR makes a kind of whine or grinding sound and then the following message appears in the display: 3L 22 AA. What...


Have you tried ejecting the tape?

If the cassette will not eject, the tape is probably fouled on the capstans and will need to be "surgically" removed, VERY CAREFULLY from the machine.

Unit accepted cassette, won't eject


It is likely that either the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Because the unit is still in "play" mode, the mechanism won't let the door open up. If you have not opened up these units before, do not attempt it now. This unit should be taken to an experienced tech for repair. Where are you located?

VCR ejecting my cassettes


Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.

GE VG4056 will not rewind


The photo sensor that senses the tape end has blown or dry soldered.It is on the right side of the mechanical deck and senses the transparent end of the tape through the square hole in the video cassette.

Power problems on VCR


When a tape is inserted or ejected the machine will attempt to tighten the tape by turning the rewind hub for a second, then it watches the counter to see if the fast foward hub turned (thus the tape is tight), if the tape can not turn or the counter sensor is bad then it shuts off (a safety mode to prevent tape damage). So, you could have a bad belt, bad idler wheel, or bad sensor.

Hope that helps...

Machine won't stay on


Hi I'm not familiar with your model, but what it sounds like is a bad "end sensor" on your machine. There are photo sensors on either side of the cassette basket which is what holds the tape in the machine. There is a light source that ends up inside the cassette when loaded, which shines both left and right. There is a section of clear tape inside the cassette at both the beginning and end of the tape. When the sensor on the left side sees light through the clear tape, the VCR knows you have reached the end and goes into rewind, when it sees light on the left side, it knows you have reached the beginning of the tape, and stops rewinding. This sensor is also used in some models to sense when you insert a tape in the basket. In that case, if the right side end sensor goes bad, the VCR always thinks you are trying to load a tape, so it doesn't want to give them up, and when you rewind, it never senses the beginning of the tape, so it will shut down when it reaches the beginning, and could even snap the tape. I'm 99% positive that is what is wrong with your VCR, it is an easy fix, but unfortunately, you won't likely find a repair shop that will sell you the proper sensor. I hope this helps in some way. Good Luck!
