I have a Sony SL HF900 Betamax. [purchased recently]. When video is recorded or just plain monitored through the Betamax, coming in from RF or line video inputs, the video goes bright to dark every few seconds, just as if I was adjusting the brighthness control from low to high.This continues to cycle every few seconds. I know it is not the source component, or the monitor due to the fact that if I bypass the Betamax, and just connect the source component to the monitor, everything looks fine. It is obviuosly not the heads based on the fact that just plain monitored video coming into the machine yields the same results. Do you have any idea as to what the problem is? Thanks for taking the time to read this and your help is appreciated. paul.

By the way I was able to frankenbeta two busted SL-HF 300s I picked up from someone off this page into one working unit. One of the tapes I tested this with is a BIS recording from off my SL-HF 750 (which I haven't had tuned yet). An SL-HF 300 WILL play BIS recordings!!!

Now that is totally sidekickin'

I personally HATE modern cell phone designs. They are awash with un-neccessary lamps and so on... Also, the continue to get smaller to the point of literal unusability. A friend of mine has a cell phone with two functions duplexed onto the top and bottom of each keycap, so you have to press the specific end of a specific keycap. This is a challenge for me, even with my other-worldly fingernails... (I don't cut 'em 'cause I don't care :-) I seriously think some modern technology was not designed to actually be used, but rather to simply be looked at and make people envious. "Look, I have a cell phone so tiny I can cram it into any body cavity you like! No, it doesn't do anything, but if you call me on it it lights up like a Christmas tree and plays "Smoke on the Water"!" Not only this but the same phones have an 8-bit color screen (At least, a camera, a flashlight, email, messages, paging, AOHell Instant messanger, and a GUI that puts a Mac Classic to shame. WTF? It's a telephone! All I want it to do is send and recieve calls! And be big enough to use without special implements. Kinda like my Betamax. Form Used to follow function. Anyone here ever USE an SL-HF-2100??? I understand it's actually not easy....

Sony GCS-50 that I picked up on ebay has all kinds of problems. Mainly, after recording some dubbed video from VHS, it plays back two seconds of audio and video, and then goes silent and all I see is snow. 2 seconds on, 2 seconds off...and it continues to cycle this way. I cleaned the heads internally [have done this many times before on other machines], but to no avail. By the way during record monitoring, the audio is constant and sounds fine through the machine.

what is going on?

thanks.

Re: Mitch Bobo's HF870D

"Digital" Betas are no different in regular playback than any other Beta. The signal is straight analog. The digital portion only comes into play for special effects, freeze frame and fast scanning.

From your description, I would say that the shop did not align the 870 properly.

A question - do you get any picture in Betascan?

Mitch;

Digital Beta much more sensitive than those Analog family.Have you clean the HeadDrum (use nonresidual cleaner/CarbonDioxide CO2),sometimes old tapes causes many problem to the head.Try with new tapes,if problem persist go to repairing / Tuning steps.Usually there's nothing to be align if the Disk Assy/Rotary Head is still in good shape.Some electronics knowledge require if U wanna do Tuning work,otherwise dont do anything to the machine or you'll loose both A/V.We need more technical detailed explanation to help.

I have a Sony HF870D in pristine condition. I bought it new many years ago and have treated it with kid gloves ever since. My problem is this: A few years ago it stopped displaying video but I still got the audio signal. I took it to a local authorized Sony dealer for repair. When they called me back for authorization for repair, they explained that they needed to re-align the heads and that there was a possibility that any tapes already recorded on the machine might not replay properly anymore. At that point I wasn't getting any video signal anyway so I figured I had nothing to lose by having them do the repair. When I got it home I popped a tape in and to my delight it played (video and audio) just fine...for about three minutes. Then the screen went blank. No picture, no audio. Nothing. Just as they had warned me might happen. I got so frustrated that I just packed the machine back up in the original box and have had it in safe storage ever since. Then I found this site and figured I would toss out my dilemma to anyone who might have an idea as to why the tapes would no longer play. I can't imagine it has anything to do with the fact that the tapes were recorded on that machine because a lot of them weren't. Before I got the Sony I had an NEC 4-head machine and the tapes I recorded on it played just fine on the Sony and those recorded on the Sony played just fine on the NEC. How could a re-alignment of the heads result in the loss of the ability to play previously recorded tapes? If I could go out today and buy a brand new Beta (I know, dream on) I'm sure the tapes would play just fine in it and they obviously wouldn't have been recorded on THAT machine. Just as you can rent a video and play it in a series of any number of totally unrelated VCRs and it will give you a signal in each and every one. Anyway, at this point I no longer do much recording anyway so it really isn't that much of a concern. What bothers me is all the tapes I already have and all the stuff I'll never get to see again. It just seems such a waste. If anyone has had a similar experience concerning no longer viewable tapes and was able to resolve the situation (short of buying or renting a machine) I would appreciate your comments and responses here.

Thanks-Mitch

He's got a lot of rare units and he does seem to be charging for rarity as if people collect these like baseball cards... I know that I want my units because they are viable pieces of technology. My Japanese unit was actually bought at a fair price for such a unit, and its rarity is only secondary to its functionality, yet he charges $ 800 for player-only Betas... As P.T.

Hi I got this Beta Spins out very fast when I plug the AC cord in Reverse Polarity (though there's no polarity in AC) some kind of current leakage phenomenon got into. I'd change the noise filter condenser on the Transformer unit,the condenser in SysCon block,the Cmos N some transistor; works out well for the time manner, but when I reverse the "polarity" of the AC cord it went nuts. Dont tell me that the Chip FckdUp.No such leakage Beetwen the primary and the secondary winding.Thank God it's Friday.....

____________________________________________________________________________

If not mistkn, there's a small POT will adjust the Strenghten of the Tape when played.[Tape wont play if too stickyy on Head]One Bobbin slightly hold Capstan Bobbin(works clearly when in Stepping mode)There's lot's of sensors that control the Movement. One or another should work accordingly and all of carry out by the SysCon Chip.All of the motor in Mechanism deck are stepper motor wich actually works like a clock ticking but in a very fast sequence.With only one sequence fail then the whole operations will be wrong,picture just like flowcharting.__________________________________________________________________________________________My simple opinion is just check the condenser in the RotaryHead then goes to the HallEffect Sensing, Motor controller chipset,another component related.

Re: David Adams message(s);

In regards to your Sony Betamax machine with a non spinning video head-

You were correct to try cleaning the Hall effect devise on the head motor assembly. The jitter that the head does indicates the usual problem that occurs with the motor. Cleaning off the glue only fixes 2 out of 10 machines.

I have had to switch out the motor assembly on many machines. I salvage heads from cheap mono machines for this purpose.

Hope this helps

Sorry folks, I forgot to mention that the heads/drum do actually "judder" when play is pressed, but then lock themselves still (must be the magnets I guess). So it looks like there is some sort of power getting there (maybe).

Hi Everyone,Having read through this much of this forum, I have a glimmer of hope that someone out there can help me with a fix for my non-working Sony SLC-30UB. Basically, it was working fine until last week when it suddenly began to just STOP after about 5 seconds. This occurred in play, ff and rewind modes. On looking inside, I discovered that the head did not spin when I pressed play. The tape was fully loaded around the drum, etc, and the tape actually moved forward, BUT THE HEAD DID NOT SPIN. I have looked everywhere for help and have done a couple of adjustments.... these include removing the glue from the hall effect device and adjusting the tape/cassette position (in case it was a microswitch). But still no luck. Unfortumately the machine I keep for spares has the same problem, so I can't take the parts from that - but first of all I need to know what is wrong.

Can anyone help please ?? If so, would you explain exactly which part is which and where it is in very non techy terms please..... Thanks.

Hello Folks, hope someone can help me out. I've got some Betamax PAL tapes that I would like to get the audio only out of and onto cassettes. I'm from Canada, but my wife is in Northern Ireland right now with the pile of 11 tapes. Does anyone have a deck they would like to rent out to her or know of anywhere that could perform this service either in Northern Ireland or England?

Many, many thanks,Rob

Hello everyone. I've had my SLHF-400 for a month in a half now and enjoy it very much. I have especially liked going through the tapes that came with it, and have had a few surprises in addition to the moovies on there. This mainly has been MTV recordings that include music recorded back when they played strictly music videos through the mid 80's, mostly in 1985 and 1986. Prior to getting my 400 I had a tape that was recorded from WKBD TV-50 in Detroit of me when I was a baby on Detroit Today which was recorded in 1977. I enjoyed watching the commercials that were on TV when I was a baby and am happy to say that this tape works great. I am currently looking for any tapes recorded from TV from the mid 70s through about 1985, which is when my tapes that I have now were recorded at the earliest, though it may be 1986, as I am not sure when the previous owner to my machine got it. I am hoping to find stuff recorded down in the Detroit area, but if it is national TV I guess it won't matter much. I am also looking for any technical help with some switches on my SLHF-400. I am concerned with the switches in the little compartment on the bottom of the front of the machine. Any help with this would be great, and thanks in advance.

Nothing but an ED machine should ever have any business touching ED tape. It wears the heads out very quickly. I know you can use S-VHS tape the other way 'round, though. In fact if you use a good quality VHS tape you can even drill the shell and record S-VHS. I know from a while back someone tried using a regular tape to record ED-Beta and it didn't work.

A Betamax recorder will decidedly NOT play Beta-SP Tape recordings. The two formats are absolutely incompatible.
