I wanted to know if anyone can help me out. I have a AG-DV1000P mini DV deck. A problem just started with it when if I put an MiniDV tape in (even new one) as soon it loads fully threads up the deck powers off. When I turn power on it powers off again (tape still inside). Pressing eject button the second I try to press power on will eventually eject the tape. If I press play it powers off. Has anyone seen this problem and is there a solution that I can do? I am tech person but I just never worked on these decks. Suggestions welcome too. Thanks. I work for a place that can't afford to send it to repair right now but is a much needed deck so if someone can help me out it will be greatly appreciated.

Re: AG-DV1000P that powers off when tape is put in.
one of the reel or capstain motors should be not allowing to work something prevents it from rotating check with hands for fluidity of capstain or reel motor
that power off is a conclusion of a short while motor tries to spin
check for any thing broken in the guides or the path

When there's a problem with the drive mechanism of a VCR it will shut down to prevent damage. All operations of a VCR are controlled by a computer chip. This is told what mode the mechanism is in by a Mode Switch. If this is faulty it can cause the machine to play up. Sometimes a spray of Video 40 on the mode switch can restore operation. However it will not correct the problem if the mechanism has any damage on it.
The message indicates that an internal problem was detected and that the unit has shut down to prevent damage to the tape. The tape will need to be removed by hand. I can not receommend a repair location without knowing where you are.
the "dv sensor"is actually a mechanical lever built into the cassette housing that moves the reel tables to match the reel spacing on mini or full-size DV tapes. check to see if this assembly is free to move. if it binds up, the reel tables may not move as far as they need to, and can cause problems similar to the one you're seeing. to inspect the mechanism, you need to remove the cassette housing. if you don't have a service manual, get a tech to help -- it's a delicate procedure for the inexperienced.
