    My trusty Panasonic NV-FS90B seems to have expired..:(

    On power up, it thinks it has a tape inside, trys to rewind and then powers off after about 10 to 15 seconds.
    Disconnecting and reconnecting to the mains repeats the same as above.....:confused:

    Anyone had experience of a similar fault on Panasonic video recorders? Its some 12 years old now, so don't think it will be worth repairing, (unless its a common fault) but will have to replace it because of my collection of SVHS tapes.

    Anyone have a Panasonic NVHS930BS? Opinions on performance appreciated.

    Thanx in advance for any ideas/suggestions

    Hi guys,
    does anyone have and NV FS90 they want to sell for parts.
    I also have one, but I am not ready to retire mine.
    It's playing up, but my local tv guy says if I can get one for parts he might be able to fix it.

    Any idea's where I might get a second unit, or broken parts for it.

    Ebay is your best bet for a scrap machine, although Vision Aids have (mechanical) parts available.
    This VCR uses the G-Deck mechanism, which was used in the FS-88, FS-100, and FS-200 amongst others. The power supplies on these often need blanket replacement of all electrolytic capacitors for continued reliability.
