Anyone here familiar with the UVW1200P and similar?

I have a couple of these which work fine. I've just collectedanother, and found that tapes play on it with very poor results,looking just like worn heads. The picture is noisy, has poor colourat the top of the screen, and some black tails from highlights. BUTthe hours meters say the machine is very low mileage, and the interiorcondition supports this.

Interestingly, I found that the noise and colour problems completelycleared during STOP (Pause). That made me wonder if there is a backtension problem.

As an experiment, I increased the back tension by inserting a plasticguide near the sapphire blade, just as the tape leaves the cassetteshell. The picture improved to 100% perfect, all noise cleared andall instability gone.

You might argue that increased back tension could improve theperformance of worn heads, so we've not completely eliminated them,but I suspect that the back tension setting is just way low. I don'thave a back tension gauge alas.

Two questions then: Where is the back tension adjustment? VHS decksusually have this as an adjustment to a felt strap on the supplyspool, but Beta/V2000 can use a motor on the supply spool and so haveelectrical back tension settings. Secondly: Is there a "rule ofthumb" method for setting back tension without a gauge?

Thanks for any advice,

Colin

Hi Guys I have an old Sony Trinicon HVC 2000P Video Camera, lost my brother in January and it was found in his home, got a little research and found that I need a Betamax Recorder in order to use it. I sourced an old Sony SL-T7 ME from a friend and attached it. The camera powers up but the screen is just white with a line down it, or black with a white line if i turn down the brightness. But I see no picture. Do I need to have a cassette in the recorder and set to record before the camera will work? The sound light on the back is responsive to sound so I guess the mic is ok, and the zoom operator turns the lens ok, just no picture. Any help or info on this would be appreciated. This seems to be the only site I can find on the matter, Thanks, Deepblues

Can anyone tell me if I can play NTSC tapes on a UVW-1800P machine? I understand the machine records in PAL but what about just playing an NTSC tape? Thanks for your time!

My husband recently passed away. His passion was BETA...everything, anything and all. It is very hard and breaks my heart, but I have to part with some of his beta tapes, etc. I estimate that we have hundreds of pre-recorded, in original cases, movies. Of course, all are in good condition. The selection is very wide, everything from hard to find, original, old Disney movies, to old westerns and everything in between. We started collecting from the beginning of Beta until they stopped producing beta movies. I also have recorded tapes from Desert Storm coverage, blank tapes still sealed, various models of equpment and cameras. I don't know if there is an interest in this.... I just found this site under his favorites and decided to post this. Thank you.
