Subject EATS TAPES, WON'T EJECT (FOUND T-REEL TORQUE TO BE LOW)
SYMPTOMS The customer complains that the unit eats tapes, or the tape won't eject. Unit does not fail on the bench, and examination of the unit does not reveal any absolute cause of the problem. However, the take-up reel torque measures low (approx. 2 g/cm) and is therefore suspected to be the cause of the customers' problems. New reels received from Kansas City also measure low torque. RESOLUTION Disassemble the T/U reel and expand the spring so that the torque increases to a more typical level (6 - 8 g/cm). The info. for this FPR was submitted by Bill Steingraber of the N.E. RRC.
Subject ERATIC MECH (MODE SYMPTOM); PIN 1 OF MODE SWITCH POOR SLDR.

RESOLUTION Replace IC706.
Subject NO CONTROL FROM I/R REMOTE (D307 MOUNTED BACKWARDS ON CF-42)
SYMPTOMS Remote would not work. Found problem to be caused by D307 being mounted backwards on the CF-42 board. RESOLUTION Install D307 properly.
Subject NO LCD PICTURE (FOUND BAD SOLDER ON CN304 ON THE PD-67 MCB)
SYMPTOMS No LCD picture. Found problem to be caused by poor solder on CN304 on the PD-67 board. RESOLUTION Resolder CN304.
Subject NO LCD PICTURE (FOUND CN303 PULLED LOOSE FROM PD-67 BOARD)
SYMPTOMS The wire harness to CN303 on the PD-67 board was not drawn far enough into the LCD cabinet at the time of manufacture. This caused the plug to be pulled loose from CN303 when the customer rotated the LCD panel for self-shooting. Have seen this problem sporadically in the past on other models, but the problem is starting to be seen fairly frequently on this model. RESOLUTION
Pull the harness fully into the cabinet, reinsert connector.

CANNOT WRITE TO EEPROM W/RADAR W -INCORRECT WRITE RELEASE
SYMPTOMS When attemptinig to write page f data to eeprom in this unit, radar w program returns an error message of failed in the communication. Memory data can be read with no problem. Problem seems to be write protect release related. Tried different radarw executable programs, different pc's, different jig interfaces and different CCDTRV22 units with same results.

Subject Shaky Picture when Steady shot is on - Apply Grease to Ground Shaft.
When Steady shot SW is ON, picture becomes shaky. CAUSE Vibration of Drum shaft ground contact affects oscillation frequency of angler velocity sensor causing an error of anti-shake sensor pick up. RESOLUTION Apply contact grease at to top of ground contact of drum.
Subject AUDIO CUTS OUT (FOUND EXTERNAL MIC JACK CONTACTS DIRTY)
SYMPTOMS Audio cuts out and in. RESOLUTION Cleaned the external mic. jack contacts.
Subject DISTORTED AUDIO (FOUND CORROSION ON MA BOARD)
SYMPTOMS Unit had distorted E-E audio. Found corrosion on MA board on CN951 (no evidence of liquid damage anywhere on camera. RESOLUTION Replaced MA board.

Subject DOOR WON'T CLOSE (FOUND C-CLIP JAMMING CAPSTAN MOTOR)
Door was stuck (wouldn't go down). Found problem to be caused by a Cclip being stuck to the capstan motor, preventing its rotation. This C-clip is used to to secure the right side of the LS assembly. RESOLUTION Resinstalled the C-clip in its proper place.
Subject INTERMITTENT POWER (FOUND CORROSION ON CN102)
SYMPTOMS Power would intermittently shut off within 10 seconds to 1 minute. Found problem to be caused by corrosion on CN102. RESOLUTION Cleaned corrosion from CN102.

Subject NO CAMERA OPERATION - REPL TIMING GENERATOR IC702
SYMPTOMS There was no camera video. VCR section worked OK. There was no output from the CCD. The CCD was initially changed because it appeared that all the timing signals were present, etc. However, the problem turned out to be the Timing Generator, IC702. All timing signals were present, but not correct. RESOLUTION Replacement of IC702 restored proper operation.

Subject SMEARED EE - VIDEO; <EVF FLEX DAMAGED BY THE CCD IC PINS>
SYMPTOMS Recurring prob with this model. The evf ribbon is routed in a large loop and when unit is assembled the ribbon rubs on the ccd imager pins. These pins being very sharp will rub thru the foil after a period of time when raising and lowering EVF. Symptoms is intermittent smeared EE video. If you squeeze the case or disassemble the cabinet, the problem clears up. RESOLUTION Reroute cable and tape against cabinet half allowing for some travel.
FP408 FLEX BOARD TO EVF
Subject INTERMITTENT REEL ERRORS; ADD TAPE TO LS CHASSIS FLEX
SYMPTOMS Intermittent reel erros. Problem often caused by the ribbon cable on the ls chassis beng shorted out by the cassette compartment when it is closed.
The problem occurs in the corner where the ribbon cable takes a 90 degree turn right by S002/cc lock. RESOLUTION Add a small piece of electrical tape over the flex cable. This wil prevent it from being shorted out. If ribbon cable is severed it must be replaced. Many techs try to resolve this intermittent problem by changing the senors, goosenect, reel talbe, etc. If they change the ls assembly the problem may reoccur in a short time if the ribbon is not
