Hi evry body i have some PDV-184ME @33USD [email protected] New
Though this is not related to Betacams I have to mention this as it's important.
My mate Doug in Victoria Australia whom has a collection of vintage video equipment is getting rid of three 2 inch Quad VTRs as he needs space for some LMS machines. As there's virtually no marketing in 2 inch VTRs he's going to get them destroyed for scrap metal unless someone is willing to take them off his hands. The 2 inch VTRs are: RCA TR-61, RCA TR-70 and an Ampex AVR-2 all in PAL format. These are very few remaining 2 inch quad VTRs left in Australia.
Anyhow I was wondering if anyone here is interested in these VTRs or know of anyone who is interested in them? If so then here's Doug's email address for you's to contact [email protected] . Also contact me too at [email protected] or [email protected] . I'll be asking around on various message boards and groups and emailing various video companies to see if I can find anyone who's interested as well as I desperately want to see these VTRs go to a good home instead of being bulldozed and used as scrap metal.
Lastly a few things to mention, the suitable environment for these machines would be a room with a tiled or carpeted floor and air conditioning is preferrable too especially in hot weather conditions. Also Doug uses 60 psi of absolute dry compressed air when operating these VTRs.

At work we have recently been loaned a Sony Betacam SP UVW-1400P Cassette Recorder and would like to know if it is possible to link it to allow a Sony RM450-CE edit controllerto allow picture search jog/shuttle facilities. I would be very gratful if you could recomend the type of cable required if indeed it is possible to do so.
Many thanks for any assistance.
Hello, regarding the psu fault with the BVW-15p, i have 3 machines and a BVW-10p with the same problem (the BVW-40 uses a different design). The UR-06 psu is the one that usualy doesnt start up properly. After about 20 minutes it will start up or if you run the machine at 110v (instead of 240v). These psu's auto sense the i/p voltage (90-240v) and i think the problem may be with this part of the circuit or the PWM. There is a Sony feb relating to capacitors on the primary side of the circuit that can fail or leak but i have replaced these already without success. I have the schematics but havent had time to progress any further. It is a common problem and age related.
I have two BVW15's and they both have the same fault. The switchmode power supply will not start up. If you turn one of them on and off several times it will sometimes start.
I suspect its a common problem, ie old elecrolytic capacitors.Anyone have a circuit diagram or have come acroos the problem before
i will like to buy some tapes .

I am after a couple of items, though cannot find them anywhere on the web -which is why I am now posting on this site.
I am after a front panel for a pvw-2800p so that I can mount this into a desk and effectivley operate this unit remotley. I am after a couple of these so that editing will be made easier, and controls will be near my telecine machines instead of over the other side of the room!Also, I am looking for the same for 2 digibeta machines I will shortly be getting. At the moment, I am unsure of what the exact models will be, though any help of pointing me in the right direction would be extremely appreciated.
Thanks for reading!

Hi does anybody have/ or know of anyone/any place that sells second hand beta sp players and/or dvcam players/cameras? What is the price range on these secondhand products genaraly?
any help would be much appreciated!
Dear all, My question isn't Betacam related. However, as there are a number of "video veterans" on this board, I hope to get some help. I purchased a JVC BY110 three tube camera on eBay. It seems that it has a slight burnin (hope this is the correct English word for it) on one of the tubes. I've noticed a small grey spot in the middle of the camera image. I've heard that there are some techniques to remove this spot without having to change the whole tube. Something like filming a particular colour or grey card for a couple of minutes. Anyway, I really hope someone is able to help me :-) Thanks a lot & greetings from Austria,

Hi folks I need to access on the web information (including tech specs) for Sony BVW600 camcorder. Can anyone help,please. Thanks
Has anyone ever modifed a BVW-75P (or similar) to playback ordinary betamax tapes? I dont think its possible without extensive modification, as betacam is component and betamax is composite. Also, there is the different carrier frequencies and tape speed differences to contend with!Just curious i guess.
Does anyone know the RS232 commands for a Sony BetaCam PVW 2800?
Thank you, Steve

Well, the TV systems are different. American VHS uses NTSC, PAL VHS uses PAL. American NTSC uses 525 lines and PAL uses 500 (I think). Also, the power systems are different. We use 60hz, they use 50. Someone from the PAL system correct me if I'm wrong. Plus, VHS is yucky. Come on over to the Betamax chat page and we'll help you see the light. :)
