grrrrrrr. Yes Sean the 300 with white powder all over it. Trade it for shipping and a couple packs of film for my snaileroid camera (http://www.adorama.com/catalog.tpl?op=itemlist&sid=104681862621963211&cat1=Film&cat2=Instant%20%20Film) [type 667].

Free SL-HF900 for the one who will pick it up in Montreal.

There was liquid spilled through the top. The board beneath the mechanical chassis is ruined and its heads have already found a new life in another machine. Otherwise the VCR is in decent shape, most of its parts are usable, its even got the sticker on top.

Jakob, it sounds like your VCR is going into emergency stop mode.

Take off its cover and start playback and see what happens. Chances are the take-up reel is not turning fast enough and a slack is created.

This is a common issue mostly caused by reel table wear, which can be corrected by increasing Forward Torque.

HI, I just picked up a betamax portable recorder, the one that stacks. The outside is in pretty good shape and the inside looks good. My problem is that when I press play it starts to play but it cliks back off right away. FFD and RWD both work seamless.

Yeah.... the Trinicon camera. I have on of those, minus the deck. It's all one unit and cannot add any decks on the camera. It's a tube camera. It has a multipin connector to go to Sony decks/portapacks. It gets its power from either a PSU or a deck when connected. Both via multipin. It has white balance and all. The viewfinder has meters to read the luminosity levels. Although, I think I have the older model becuase mine is all black and has a different case. It's a plastic black mold. The manufacture sticker says 1981.

In MA it's only a little worse... we do get the hurricanes and the very rare and mild tornado (But the happen!) as well as the also infrequent earthquake, although we've had several in my lifetime I've slept through ALL of them!!! so I don't know what one is like! We do get the snow like you'd never believe... I've got some beta tape of the kind of snow we get... it's raining right now and hopefully cutting some of that snow out of the parking lot I have to use on tuesday....

While New York State does has a very few minor tremors (there was once was a "chimney dropper" up in Messina back in 1948) we're not what you would even come close to considering earthquake country Boby.

We seem to miss most of the major disaster weather the rest of America gets...

Tornados, if they happen barely get on the Fuijita index.

Hurricane's are mostly spent by the time they get here.

All we ever seem to get whalloped with is snow...

Yeah the RF units tend to go all screwy with the years. the RF unit in my SLO-323 was not operable... It's not a hard part to deal with, last I knew, however... Nor do I care, I use the 900 a lot (not just as a VCR but as an RF Modulator/demodulator) so it's on about as often as it's not...

Just reread the complaint about it going away after ten minutes. Sounds like a temperature related issue in one of the vcr's. Possibly a bad component or solder joint that somehow works better when up to temperature. Possibly in the PSU or on a board.

I'd need a screen-cap of the problem to know what you're talking about but I do know that if you can sometimes get interference between the tuners of a TV and a VCR if certain channels are tuned between the two even if you are on A/V-in select on the TV. It's still tuned to the last channel you were on...

C'mon, Jesse, I bought myself my own pro-cam (the GCS-1) for my birthday last year! OH, anyone have a clue as to why when I power up my 900 to the tuner, there's an odd little line rolling through the picture at intervals? this goes away after perhaps ten minutes of simply being on and then the unit will act normally... and, no, jesse, the 900 is NOT a candidate for donation the the wards home... If you think I'm letting go of a turbocharged 900 you're perhaps crazy... My best guess is that it's just interferance from my uber-long RF chains (not used for recording or serious playback)...

Hey everyone,

I own an old BII SL-3000 with matching camera and power adaptor. The camera works beautifully. The vcr, however, does not advance the tape. It only fast forwards and rewinds. Also, I don't think the head drum is turning. Does anyone care to trade the whole package for a working Sony BII/BIII machine? I know there are some collectors that have piles of decent mono machines sitting around, and would love to restore a vintage unit like this. It includes a car power adaptor, dubbing cables, original manuals (including a cardstock "quick start" guide) along with old, unused tape labels. The best offer will win the package. Email me (omit spamstop) for more info and pictures.

Also, I just found some old Beta tapes today, with one marked "20/20 3-9-77."

Boby, reading back abit: Your question about using a vcr to backup a computer. Yes, there is a device to do that called the Backer32. It works pretty much in the same way as PCM recording. I got one of those out of curiosity for $5 US off eBay awhile back. It's that black almost dogbone-shaped thing that connects to a parallel port and then to the video I/O jacks of a vcr (can be any format; ntsc or pal). The software included then backs up to the vcr (but it has to manually be put into record). Only problem is that the maker never made software/drivers for Windows NT+. So it'll only work from DOS-WinME. Also, it, of course, has to backup in real time. So a 2-3hour beta backup will take that long! Here's some info on it: http://www.viscountvideo.com/danmere.htm

It's an old tape that was in the discard box, but it will work to check the rewinders. harrym

The seller of the Mustang rewinder got right back to me and offered a full refund. I am sending her a Beta tape [she asked for] so she can check the rest of them. She seems eager to resolve the issue. harrym

I got the Mustang rewinder today, but it won't work. It will turn slowly without a cassette in it, but it won't wind a cassette. I have contacted the seller, but there hasn't been time for her to get back to me yet. harrym

There is/was a card that you could get that would convert compy signals to video line-in so you could disgorge the contents of your hard drive to a VCR. Sorta like those old-timey computers that run off a cassette recorder...

I know that videotape recorders can be used to back up computers, but I do not know the details of the process.

To:Harry try replace the rubber belt ;surely it'll works fine....If you like the Fast foward function in KINYO, disassemble the rotor of the motor and turn it upside down then adjust the core.(this is very difficult)Alternatively you can find a Direct Current motor with a transformer of course.Happy hunting.......

Can anyone tell me if the Sony BE-V50 rewinder will wind in both directions? harrym

Too late! I already ordered one. It looks sort of like the Kinyo model I am using, which no longer ejects the cassettes but otherwise works. I wanted the two-way feature, since I like to fast forward to the end of the tape when recycling/erasing tapes. What is the problem with this machine? harrym

OMG! Now there's a huge laugh!! "Smokies confiscate truckload of boxed beta videocasette rewinders believing there to be contraband items inside the boxes!" "'Well, we had to check,' says one officer as he munches on a jelly donut. 'Who would buy a truckload of beta rewinders?!!'"

So now if it had been, say, a rig full of HF750's, would all the "snails-in-blue" come out of the woodwork and snag 'em all before anyone could sell 'em??? ;)

All I can say is "What the #~(#, over?" siezed by law enforcement??? Truck of beta rewinders? Why is it always rewinders, or other stuff like that... why no truckload of SL-HF-900s? Wharehouse of SL-HF-870Ds? Cargo-Ship container of SL-HF-1000s? rotten rewinders... oh well..

_@_¼¼ - you suppose this is one of those 'lemonade' betas?

http://www.telusplanet.net/public/rouben/beta%20sanyo

Sanyo called their Betas "Betacords"...

Didn't Sears have use of the "Betavision" moniker? Perhaps Sanyo got stuck with a lot of returns when Sears quit selling Betas?

_@_¼¼ - you see why so many are on offer?

"Condition: This is brand new and in the box. We received a great deal on these as they were on a truck that was seized by law enforcement. Each box has been opened to ensure there was no contraband inside."

that 'war on terror' will leave no Beta rewinder unturned. I wonder if they thought there was something suspicious about a truckload of Beta rewinders? "Hey wait a minute! Who buys Beta rewinders anymore?"

I didn't mean to say that my remote was corded. What I meant was that it has a little loop of black string, kinda like one from a cheap 35mm camera that can go around your wrist.
