i need a manual

L woolard | September 2010

From techguy; This vcr is identical internally-(mechanism and pcb),to a HITACHI model VT-FX440E. FAULTS ENCOUNTERED:NO POWER--REPLACE ZENER "D015"--18 VOLT/0.4WATT, AND IF LEAVING A LOOP OF TAPE/AND EJECTING CASSETTE--This ,as with the zener diode failing,--VERY CAREFUL removal of the vcr mechanism together with the main pcb.IF THE VCR HAS JUST BEEN CONNECTED TO MAINS SUPPLY--REMOVE/UNPLUG FROM MAINS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO VCR--LEAVE FOR SEVERAL MINUTES FOR POWER SUPPLY H.T.CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE.--When the mechanism/pcb has been removed from the cabinet/case,--if zener has failed-it will read a direct "short"across one of the is designed to prevent major damage from excess voltage "spikes"--this would happen if there is an intermittent/arcing mains problems. The tape loop problem:it is all down to the "mecha-state"switch--removal to dismantle and clean,means removing a ribbon cable--extreme care is required when desoldering and eventual refitting--IT IS VERY EASILY DAMAGED,AND ALSO FAIRLY DIFFICULT WITHOUT A MAGNIFIER/LIGHT.
