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.

Cant playback tape

Videos recorded on one camcorder very seldom play back in another, due to the internal codes put on the tape by the original machine.

F11 error message in ag dv2700 during play.

Hi,

I've been working for hours on this machine, cleaning and lubricating the mechanism and trying various adjustments to fix related problems. If I recall correctly the F11 error is due to tape mistracking, indicating damage to same. Someone posted a suggestion that the F08 error indicated a drum relay problem, requiring professional servicing; but it also comes up on my machine if the tape tension is too high and the mechanism cannot overcome it when loading the tape. I only realised this after finally tracking down pretty well all of the bearings needing lubrication; then adjustments to the tape tension could be detected. I've got to the stage that my AG-DV2700 will accept tapes that have been recorded on that machine; playing them instantly, after the usual auto tape tensioning where the tape is FF a few seconds and then RW a similar amount, if the safety shutter is enagaged; and merely accepting them in the normal fashion otherwise. Up until this point it would throw up the F08 error whatever tape was put in; if you switched the recorder back on instantly the tape would slow FF, ie not its usual whirlwind winding, and be available for use after auto rewind at the end. If a tape NOT recorded on it is put in it still stops with the F08 error. I would suggest that trouble with this recorder is likely due the loading mechanism becoming stiff. All you have to do is dismantle it - but there's lots of tricky bits and bobs in there to watch out for.

Lines through the tape when recording or playing back

It could need a head adjustment. Any camera store can do that for you.

when the light flashes it means that there is an error definetly.
turn the menu button on off position first and remove the battery.

DVC recorder

The physical tapes are the same size, but the encoding on the tapes are different. Unless the panasonic recorder can play DVcam, you're out of luck.
