Question about Hitachi Projection Televisions

Will not load tape

Hitachi VT-MX910EUk. Will take in tape cartridge but does not pull out the tape to the head - simply ejects every time. Assume some form of tape registration is failing? If I crank the main loading gear by hand I can get it to take the tape to the head - but never under it's own power. Regrads, Neil

    Many thanks for the advice, sounds like my issue.

    I've noticed a perspex-like post on the main-board, almost as if it's a fibre optic(?) that pokes up into the hole in the base of each video cassette - almost between the spools? There's no visible light that I can make out from the thing.

    Will investigate and if easily available will see if I can replace.


    Regards,
    Neil

I concur with shuttle 83's analysis; that the sensor(s) in the carriage have gone south on you. These are simply photo transistors, and are readily available at just about any parts supply house...accordianman

Hello yellowwestie,

You may have a bad tape position sensor assembly (LED and photo transistor). It's purpose is to detect where the tape is in the loading process, and if the tape is not in the proper place at the proper time the tape is returned to the cassette and the cassette is ejected. This sounds like what you are talking about. I would suggest getting a schematic and checking the bias voltages (with a multimeter) on the tape position sensor assembly. If the sensor is bad replace it, if it is not check the tape sensor assembly circuitry.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Shuttle83

The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.

Projected image is slightly oversized im 16 Standard Mode


The problem was with my cable providers (Knology) cable box settings. Somehow they had changed to zoom 1. I think this happened when I played a VHS tape. If this keeps happening everytime I play a tape or DVD I'll have to remember to reset the vidio on the cable box after each tape or dvd.

Tape stuck inside. child put it in upside down.


Take the top of your VCR off keeping mind of where the screws came from, by the front of the tape there will be a gear wheel called the elevator wheel. After you have carefully unlooped the tape from the head, turn the elevator wheel, and you will be able to remove the tape then. Simply spool the tape back up and replace the cover.

I can't get my tape to come out from my Panasonic combi, also the time is flashing, the digital side will play a disc but can't record because of the time not working


You must first unplug . Take off cover and there will be a small motor with a load pully on it turn pull counter clock wise and that should remove the tape . Sometime the tape could be wrapped around the guide posts that will cause tape to be hung up.take a physical look first it could be somthing hanging it up.

I push the tape into the Vcr it tries to play it then it simply ejects it after about 5 seconds.


This is a safety feature of the machine. If it does not detect tape movement, the unit will shutdown and eject the tape.

You have a bad take-up reel clutch or a belt that is slipping.
