Vx 1000 won't turn on

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

i tried to start up my VX1000 after a few years laying around in my room.

Now i have the problem that it wont turn on anymore, neither would the player funktion start.

The Display only shows the "no tape" sign.
When i put in the battery and look through the viewfinder, it shows the timeline for 3-4 seconds and then shuts off completely.

what could be the problem here?
I repaired the viewfinder ribbon cable a few years ago, so it couldn't be the problem.

any suggestions? thanks!

If you're sure your batteries have enough left t do the job, I'd have a look at the RS-63 board. Odd that it would or could fail when it's not been powered up in years. You hear anything rattling around inside?

i can hear that its trying to startup for one second but then fails to do so and goes out.

i will check it out later, i think i will have to take it apart again.
