Sony DAT player Caution light.
« on: July 24, 2014, 05:32:21 PM »
I came across an Sony pcmR500 Dat player that would not play the tapes. It was giving a Caution light every time you put the DAT tape in. I know that it had been sitting a long time and was wondering if maybe the head was stuck. So I simply took the cover off. (NO POWER) gave the head a spin in both directions . Plugged it back in and powered it up. BOOM it now works. Not saying this will work for you but its a 10 minute attempt that may save you money.
