Hi Folks ...


I just got my new JVC 30K from Vann's today, and it seems to have a problem. Whenever I insert a tape, *any* tape, it loads it, waits for several seconds, and then powers down.


If I turn the power back on, it waits several seconds, and shuts down again.


With no tape loaded, it appears to operate normally.


JVC says the unit's defective ... Vann's gave me an RMA for it, but is there anything I could look at/for before I give up on this puppy?

Dave,


Yeah ... I almost certainly will, but if there's some tape sensor just stuck in the wrong place, that I could tweak back where it belongs, then I'd try it.


I figure that if I make this one run, then I've got a few days to find out if it has any other problems ... a new one is just another total crapshoot.


BTW, my HDVR & AVX-1 should arrive on the 6th. Too bad I won't have a working 30K by then .....

Oh well ... so close.


I took off the cover, and noticed one of those white flat cables was unplugged at one end, and had gotten into the tape transport.


AHA! (I said to myself)


As I manuvered it over to where it was supposed to be.


OOPS! (I said to myself)


As I heard the tiniest little *zap* and saw the briefest little puff of smoke ...


I'd neglected to unplug the damned thing!


We'll skip the rest of the things I said (to myself).


Guess I'll have to wait until the week after next to get things going.
