Panasonic NVDS60 "no tape error"

Hi all, I turned on my Panasonic NVDS60 today and it would not record or play any tapes i put in it. when you put a tape in, and switch to record or playback, the screen just flashes the "no tape icon" constantly. i checked the write-protect tab is not on the tape, i turned on and off, and tried different tapes, but that did not work. i tried blowing inside it but this did not work either. please can anyone help me with this? thanks very much Thomas

Clean the heads - search the Net for 'wet' versus 'dry' tapes.

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

  • Like all the old video recorders there are mechanical parts inside what need cleaning in high priority the parts that mechanical activate switches for the intake in the little microcontactsswitches and the most important of all are mechanical mode-select-switches where timing is an hot issue
  • The entire process is timed often gears are used, but sometimes also strings that can slip by age and or dirt, cleaning and contact cleaner and look for bad soldering.
  • Also check that the lens motor for the aperture setting is working properly, because everything concerns mechanical settings when that failure then stops the device.
    Also the zoom lens motor that are the first mechanical parts after the tape was lace in. all must exactly done in a special short timing.

Cant record in Panasonic AG-DV1000 using firewire


clean the heads; often, heads that will play back a pre-recorded tape may not record because of dirt.
