the mode switch contacts need cleaning. its a small circular switch under the mechanism that controls switching voltages.when the contacts are tarnished the vcr throws a wobble and doesnt know whether to go into play reverse or forward so shuts down with an error code showing.take it apart and spray with switch cleaner.

Techchris, would you be kind enough to point me to where this mode select switch is located? I don't quite understand what I am looking for by your initial description. Thanks in advance.
