Hi, with this error you have NO Option, but to return the unit back to the manufacturer, most likely they will simply replace the faulty one with a New one...
You need to contact the Manufacturer/Supplier, and ask them exactly what to do.

It seems that the cylinder head drum is not turning as there is a failure in the servo system , the servo motor or the drive.
This can also be due to failure of the HALL IC which switches the motor driver IC or it can be a failure of the power to the drive or even a mechanical block on the cylinder.
Open the cassette tray and feel the drum to be free, if so use a hair dryer to warm the inside of the set with the tray open so as to dispel any moisture which could have triggered the DEW switch to cut off the cylinder so as to prevent tape entangling.
If this wont work then there is fault in the servo which might need a qualified tech help.

No sound when recording

Hi,

Please get your microphone tested, also, you can try testing the recording using external microphone.
It seems that the problem is with microphone contacts or internal loose connections.

Seem to be a minor one, hope it will be resolved with above methods.

Thanks.

How to clean Heads of DVX100B

Hello there! This kind of tape is abrasive and so when it starts to rotate the S-post is not rotating one and the tension gets higher than it use to be with a normal tape.The best solution for this problem is to rotate upper drum slowly by hand carefully and spray towards it a head cleaning spray.Then wait for 15 min.and blow hot air from a hair dryer inside mechanism for 10 seconds ,and by this action no more droplets will stay on the drum surface.Attention when you put the first tape wait for 15 seconds in pause or stop mode and after push REC or PLAY button.
