Question about Aiwa HV-MX100 VHS VCR

1 Answer

My Aiwa HV-MX100 vcr has not been used in about 18 months. When I insert a tape, I can hear a whirring noise, but the tape will not eject properly. Also, the power will not shut off completely - the machine seems to switch itself on and almost off - the display dims and then brightens again. I cannot get it to power off even with the remote. The power button on the machine feels as though it is stuck. I live in Los Angeles and am trying to find a technician who will actually repair a vcr, if indeed it is repairable. I have a number of PAL tapes I want to transfer to dvd.

Is your VCR fixed?
From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.

Vcr door won't open

It's probably just a little spring that has come. Or that a latch as come out of place. You can sometimes correct it by removing the front side part. You will have to take off the top cover and sometimes the base to get to the screws that hold the front on.

Current location for the HV-MX100 VHS VCR User Manual download

The current location for the downloadable User Manual is http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=16110&template_id=&region_id=1&DL=

The manual is at Sony's web site since Sony bought out Aiwa in 2002 (and discontinued the brand in 2006).

Aiwa HV-MX1: tape won't eject from VCR and it switches off.

Turn over the VCR. Unscrew the base. You will see the 3 belts. Turn the rightmost belt clockwise or anticlockwise (don't remember) but you will see the tape hold mechanism moving down. Once it is all the way down, you can eject the tape out.

You may need to replace one or all 3 belts. This is being caused by belts being loose.

hope this helps.

Aiwa HV-MX100 multiformat VCR won't power on...

Too little information to give any information / help / opinion. What actually happens? Does the Display come on properly? Do you hear any mechanical Noises? Like a motor whirring? Are you able to load a cassette into the machine? Does it get ejected automatically? As you say that the machine switches ON, I assume tyhat the Power supply cicuits are Ok, and this leaves us with the possibility that there is a mechanical problem.Is it that the machine was not used for a long operiod of months or years? If that is the case, in all probability the belts are damaged / broken / loose. I really need more info, please.

Our Aiwa MX100 doesn't play our pal system tapes

Just Clean the Video heads with a Wet Type Head Cleaner. Do 2 or 3 runs. Should clear up the problem.
