    I tried banging it with the flat of my hand like so many suggested but it still doesn't eliminate the message. Any advice on how many "bangs" or with how much force?

Tape Stuck


I've checked the entire user manual which notes problems like this need to be referred to authorized service personnel. Myself, I would unplug the entire unit, put it on a kitchen table using a phillips (cross-tip) screwdriver to remove the top metal shell. Remove at least 2 screws each side and 2-5 rear screws securing the top. Nothing like peering inside to see what is causing the VCR to get stuck and help remove it. No release pinhole or tape freeing ejector will work if the unit's tape is tightly wound around some internal object or the tape is stuck because something foreign is inside the unit.

I have a Sony PDX-10 and it's giving me two blinking yellow symbols (underlinded triangle and tape with line through it) when I fire it up loaded with a tape. Tried changing with tapes that work fine in...


Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

Sony DSR 25, error code C3140. Any advise. Only comes up when tape is inserted.


FG fault when starting drum.
It’s very possible that you have a bad drum motor.

Everytime i insert the tape i get this beeping sounds and flashing numbers on the screen.


Beeping and error code flashing shows that camcorder got some problem and usually its tape mechanism that needs qualified tech to check and fix.
Mostly its take-up reel section problems. Local camera tech will fix it.
Thanks.

Panasonic DMR-EZ47V Error Code F03


I saw this same issue. I would unplug and plug in the DVD and it would still show error code F03.

It turns out that one of my kids had shoved a couple of small objects inside the VHS opening and it was blocking the operation. I removed the objects and it works fine.

This error code is not listed in the manual that came with the DVD player.

Get it to a shop. The error is a drum servo related problem. Don't force the mechanism or you'll be out even more...accordianman

E2 error


Just had the same E2 come up on my HSU-445. The only thing we could figure out was to try a different tape than the one that was in there when the error came up. That seemed to do the trick. Not sure how long that will work. Good luck.
