The service was quick and simple, finding the service manual easy and it appears to be the original with colour schematics. It contained the info I was after and so sorted the problem.
I have copied it to CD and attached the envelope to the inside back cover of the owners manual. Good manual and excelent service. Robin Wood, Wood Electronics, New Zealand.
Exactly what was needed to assess the product - excellent value and great service

only be undertaken by experienced service technicians with the right tools, experience and patience to perform surface mount rework when needed.
This Service manual is very well scanned and its clean to read, no any anti-theft words that un-english could understand. I got my CCD600 working with this manual and it´s clear shematics :)
SECTION 2 DISASSEMBLY
2.1 Manually removing the cassette tape If you cannot remove the cassette tape which is loaded because of any electrical or mechanical failures, manually remove it by taking the following steps. (1) Unplug the power cord plug from the power outlet. (2) Refer to the disassembly procedure of the VCR and perform the disassembly of the major parts before removing the mechanism assembly. (See Fig. 2-1a) (3) Unload the pole base assembly by manually turning the gear of the loading motor until the pole base assembly is hidden behind the cassette lid. In doing so, hold the tape by the hand to keep the slack away from any grease. (See Fig.2-1b ) In case of mechanical failures, while keeping the tension arm assembly free from tension, pull out the tape on the pole base assembly. Take the spring(a) of the pinch roller arm assembly off the hook, and detach it from the tape. (4) Remove the screw (a) of the side frame (L/R). (5) Hold the slack tape and cassette cover together, lift the cassette tape, top frame, cassette holder and side frames (L, R) together from the rear and remove them by dis-engaging the hooks (a) and (b).
