Aiwa HV-MX100 multiformat VCR won't power on...

I have an old Aiwa HV-MX100 VCR that when I power it on, it powers off 10 seconds later. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Pravin,

    When I press the power button, I do hear it go on and the display comes on. If I quickly insert a cassette, it automatically ejects it and then powers off.

    The machine was indeed not used for a few years. I can open it up and look at all the belts and such if I had an idea of how many belts there should be and where.

    Thanks.

Too little information to give any information / help / opinion. What actually happens? Does the Display come on properly? Do you hear any mechanical Noises? Like a motor whirring? Are you able to load a cassette into the machine? Does it get ejected automatically? As you say that the machine switches ON, I assume tyhat the Power supply cicuits are Ok, and this leaves us with the possibility that there is a mechanical problem.Is it that the machine was not used for a long operiod of months or years? If that is the case, in all probability the belts are damaged / broken / loose. I really need more info, please.

My Aiwa HV-MX100 vcr has not been used in about 18 months. When I insert a tape, I can hear a whirring noise, but the tape will not eject properly. Also, the power will not shut off completely - the...

Is your VCR fixed?
From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.

Current location for the HV-MX100 VHS VCR User Manual download

The current location for the downloadable User Manual is http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=16110&template_id=&region_id=1&DL=

The manual is at Sony's web site since Sony bought out Aiwa in 2002 (and discontinued the brand in 2006).

Aiwa HV-MX100u powers down after 5 secs, even without cartridge

Dave, your problem is most likely with the mode sensors. I had the same symptoms and it turned out that some lubricating gel had migrated onto the electrical contacts that make up part of the mode sensing system.

If you go over to the HV-MX100 page, I've posted a guide (with photos) under the Tips section showing how I fixed it.

PAL to NTSC conversion

You might need to input a code on your VCR Remote. Try looking it up on the Internet.

About VCR power.

This often indicates an error condition of some sort. Has a tape been forcibly removed or forcibly inserted? If so, then mechanism timing or positioning could be out of whack. In regards to timing... often, the cassette carriage, and other mechanicals are gear driven, and if a gear set should jump a tooth or more, timing will be off. Often the gears had marks on them which must lined up according to manufacturer specs. Other possibilities include: dirty/erratic mode switch (tells the logic circuit the position of the mechanicals), or a bad sensor. Malfunctions in the electronics are still another possibility. If this is a low-cost VCR, as are most in the last 10+ years, repairs might not be cost effective.

Our Aiwa MX100 doesn't play our pal system tapes

Just Clean the Video heads with a Wet Type Head Cleaner. Do 2 or 3 runs. Should clear up the problem.
