SONY keeps switching to EP at beginning of playing SP tapes


You may have dirty heads in the vcr---most 4 head machines use two for sp and the other two for lp and or ep.

Tape residue will usually be seen on the drum where the heads are when this happens--also look for the black residue on the tape guides that hold the tape in position against the drum-------

Can't get tape out. Stopped recording in middle of school play and I was unable to remove tape.


Sounds like the tape misfed during the recording and wrapped itself around the fly head and recordinghead. This happens sometimes when the internal workings of the recorder get dirty. The hard part is getting the tape out without damaging the unit. Your going to have to bring the recorder to a repair shop or crack it open yourself and from the opposite side try unwind the tape.

Sony Beta sp deck 1800 wont take larger tape down


Most likely problem when a Beta SP deck won't take the large tapes is a bad cable in the cassette housing. Replacement isn't too difficult, and the cable only costs about $20.00.

How to switch the tape speed on Go Video dvd/tape.


  1. Press SETUP,

  3. While RECORDING options is selected, press the DOWN arrow to select VCR RECORD QUALITY.
  4. Press ENTER to go to the submenu.
  5. Use the ARROW UP/DOWN buttons to select the desired quality.

This is the same procedure for selecting the quality for the DVR recording speeds.

VHS speeds are:

DVR recording options are:

HQ=1 hour
SP=2 hours
EP=4 hours
SLP=6 hours

I somehow managed to write protect so I cannot take pictures or transfer pictures to my laptop. How can I undo this? I have an Olympus sp 700 Thanks Durriya


Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the card can be used again.
