VTR won't play

I recently purchased a used JVC DV600U. I digitized one tape and when I went to do a second one the machine would not play. The rewind still works. I tried to use the head cleaner but since the play doesn't work I had no luck. Any suggestions or should I take it into the shop? Thx

I would take a look at the loading machanism to see if it is properly loading the tape, usually on these type of machines if the tape is not being loaded properly the tape will not play. The rewind working indicates that the motor is still working so what you may also have is a gear problem, in which you will have to look at the gear system as the tape is loading and trying to go into play mode. This looks more like a mechanical problem then an electronics issue. However I would not rule out have to take voltage measurements to confirm that the electronics are ok (you will need a schematic for this, and a multimeter).

My Sony DCR-TRV740 camera I just purchased (used), has a playback problem with my 8mm's. When I got the unit I cleaned it well with chamois swaps and MG video cleaner(Recommended by all experts it see


You have a clogged video head. It happens. Do not use the chamois again. Instead, purchase an 8mm head cleaner and give that a try. Only use a brand name cleaner - no generics, and make sure it doesn't come from China!

Loud noise on rewind


You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.

Will not play back


Usually if there is no impact injury involved or nagging intermittent past problems, you probably have a head cleaning issue. Try a dry type (reccomended) cleaning tape. Should be able to purchase at Best Buy or similar store. Good luck, magic seadog

Tapes won't play


This is an indication that both data heads are dirty. In a digital camcorder both heads need to be operating correctly to obtain a full picture. Insert a new cleaning tape and run it for only 10 seconds or less, this should clear up the problem. Avoid using the tape that caused the problem. Do not use the cleaning tape for regular maintenance, this will damage the drum surface. Good luck to you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)

Video tape gets eaten on rewind


Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.
