This error means the reel position motor is not moving the reels either together for mini DV or appart for large tapes. Usually because the sliders or gears have run out of lubrication and have seized due to not being serviced periodically. Otherwise there may be a foreign object stuck in there like a torn label etc.
Try a different size cassette tape, it may be ok on large if you are trying small or vice-versa, because it is already in that position.

There are a number of possibilities here:

1) Power to the display is missing (check the power suppy and the pins of the display itself for poor/broken solder connections).
2) Display driver IC defective
3) Main CPU not sending info to display IC.

Were there any other symptoms prior to the display stopping? If not, check for the connections at the display itself first and update this with the results. I'll look up the service manual in the meantime to check for other posibilities.

02-355: Detected S reel FG during stop and Still.
if there is a tape in the machine , open the cassette compartment and remove the tape manually. the tape may be broken. Reassemble the machine and insert a good tape.
Good luck!

these errors mean the folowing:
02-291: failed to complete winding a tape.
02-275: detected T reel FG during threading.
02-696: Detected abnormal detectiion of S and T reel rotation during play and Rec.

The second and third faults indicate a fault with the board containing the driver for the reel motors. Unless you have the service manual i suggest you buy and replace the board.
It is the DR-428 board.
good luck
