Can anyone help me with the keys to push to get into the maintenance mode of a DVW-A500 (not the 500/1). I just want to check the rom versions and our hard copy of Maintenance manual volume one has gone missing. I was able to find a PDF copy online, but it was for the a500/1 which has a different procedure.

Do things in this menu if you don't know what it is. adjusment can look if they did not do anything but you can endup with tape's that can only be playedback in your deck. due to differences in RFlevels on the tape.
if your lucky you can enter this menu with the frontpanel.
when your in the standard menu keep CTLpressed and momentary press SET.
if the menu does not change you need to open the deck and change
BIT7 on Dipswitch S100 on the SSboard. the longboard nearest to the drum on the right when the frontpanel face you.(wow hope you find it)
this gives you access to the maintenance menu.
when your in the special menu you can navigate with the menu button the set button. changing things goes the same way as in the normal menu.
People saying they don't make mistake's often make nothing at all!
