Probably both. There is a mode or position switch that tells the processor what position the deck is in. If that has failed that could be a cause also 14 years for belts is a very long time. You may find a kit on fleabay but switch wise, I doubt it.

good day Angel i am Falco the problem you have might be due to dirty heads on the Drum unit, I would first try a head cleaning tape, there are 2 types of head cleaning tapes one looks like a typical video casset type tape and the other is like a wight frizzy type tape that you apply a cleaning liquid to for a deep cleaning the first one is used for preventative maintenance, try the 2nd type first, it may take several times to restore your video note allow time for the liquid to dry up before trying a tape at least several min`+ , if after this procedure the problem has not gotten better than you might have an electronic fault and might not be worth perusing further, If however this made some improvement than you are on the right track and might require a better cleaning procedures, if so contact me further and i will step you through the procedure.

best of luck and regards Falco

As far as I can recall from mine, it can read SECAM and convert to PAL or NTSC but not write to SECAM. Which is why there is a SECAM detecetion light on the front panel.

I am assuming you dont have the old belts
You must determine whether the belt is flat, V, or square
Use a piece of string to measure the length by placing string
in the pulleys,flywheel (the belt will be smaller than your measurement so you wil want a belt 1 or 2 sizes smaller
go tohttp://www.mcminone.com./ with your measurement
and the may be able supply the belt
this site may have a schematic or photocopy that
shows belt part# http://www.servicesoftware.com/sams.asp
hopes this helps

Dave, your problem is most likely with the mode sensors. I had the same symptoms and it turned out that some lubricating gel had migrated onto the electrical contacts that make up part of the mode sensing system.

If you go over to the HV-MX100 page, I've posted a guide (with photos) under the Tips section showing how I fixed it.

This is a common problem, either the tape drive motor, or the driver for same has failed. Sometimes it is a thing called the Mode switch too.
So, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center, Aiwa, in your case, please contact a local or head office and ask for a referral to an Authorised service center. I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. You see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option. As an aside here, one could then tear the TV down, and sell the Known Good bits.

Turn over the VCR. Unscrew the base. You will see the 3 belts. Turn the rightmost belt clockwise or anticlockwise (don't remember) but you will see the tape hold mechanism moving down. Once it is all the way down, you can eject the tape out.

You may need to replace one or all 3 belts. This is being caused by belts being loose.

hope this helps.

Typically you wil need to set the ouput to pal to match the tv but it will do what you want.

Aiwa HV-MX1 VHS... | Answered on Mar 16, 2010

well the answer to this seems obvious. You can either ditch it or repair it there are no miracles here

Aiwa HV-MX1 VHS... | Answered on Mar 13, 2010

Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
They last about 6 years normally so you are overdue.
Buy a kit of belts for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself if you are handy with delicate mechanisms.
Hope ya fix it!

with the unit unplugged take the case off and look on both sides of where the front of the tape would set, you will see two towers, one is a light and the other a receiver,check to see they are plugged in and not obstructed.Also there is a switch that the tape pushes when its all the way in which might be stuck,click it a couple times with your finger.This might help, there are other more complicated things which could cause this problem but mechanical problems are more likely.
