20 Most Recent Sony DDS SDT-5000 DAT Tape Drive Questions & Answers


supply an image (and would be great if you could supply image from old broken one and new one)

I'm a bit confused though: if you have an internal working sdt-5000 that you want to put into an external broken sdt-5000, it should be as simple as getting the enclosure open, then swapping the internal drives; i.e. external enclosures usually still use the same spec internal drive so it would just be an ide or scsi connector cable.

I could help if I had more information about the problems your experiencing? You said that the tape drive is not working, but you didn't say what was wrong with it? What is it doing? Does it turn on, but it won't record a back up? Is it a problem with your system not recoginzing the drive? Have you checked to see if your system recognizes it? Did you download and install a driver before connecting the drive to your system? What is your operating system? Win Xp? Win 7? Vista? Does the light come on when you put a tape in the drive to signal that power is going to the drive? All of these questions are very relevant. There is not link for requesting a reply of confirmation on a paid question through Fixya. If you could go to your question on Fixya and use the reply or comment link to provide the above information I will help you solve this problem.

You'll need a decoder from a program like cyber dvd or win dvd. Nero also has one and sonic too. If the drive came with a dvd player program install it. You can also find them through windows media player at microsoft's website but they will cost a few bucks. Search the internet for dvd player software you may find one for free. I hope this helps you. If you are like me you might have a program in your pile of software cds'.

Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...
Ai-ai :)

The push-button activates a small motor that turns a small rubber belt/ band that opens the cassette door. Since it's not been used for 10 yrs, I would say these belts would have deteriorated and broken. you will need to replace them. the best bet is to open it up and check. if its the case, you should be able to source the belts on ebay.

this is easy, that OUT OF range means
the PC sending video is sending and illegall higher resolution
than the projector supports (or even less, on this old junk)
the manual on that old projector is clear on that. max.
SONY VPL-EX4 2007, 13 years old now.
and back then projectors STINK !
your manual shows this, and stinks.
what stinks worse is no matrix of legal H./V resolutions shown in the manual. (shows only 1)
so set the PC to 1400 x 1050 and do not use others . ok.
and 60Hz, are you in USA? not stated country.

Hi,

Looks like you are having a bad LCD screen, This could be due to drop damage. Cracks can be so tiny and may not be visible immediately. I would take it to a technician and get a screen replacement.
