Finally got my new Betamax page up! No longer is it bound by the constraints of the prefabricated GeoCities photo page. Now I can include thumbnail images that you can actually see, as much text as I want, and links to other sites! Check it out! http://www.angeltowns2.com/members/sphs/insanity/betamax.html

Whoops! I meant Beta movies AREN'T worth a whole lot...

Actually if you can find them on eBay - they eliminated their specific Beta movie catagory - you can get pretty good deals on favourite movies from the mid-90s (Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible was one of the last titles released on Beta) and earlier.

To Joe. Beta movies are worth a whole lot - maybe $2 to $10 on average depending on titles. Most of the movies that were big sellers in VHS were also big sellers in the Beta market and till the mid to late 80s most video stores kept Beta and VHS titles.

Beta rental movies seem to not have survived as well. I think it's because their VHS copies got replaced every so often but rental stores hung onto the Beta ones till they stopped dealing in Beta.

Make a list of what you have and post 'em to the Betamax Videographer.

I'm specifically looking for the Star Wars or the Amityville Horror trilogies. Change the 's to o's in my address.

Hello everyone. A few months ago, I asked for help on this chat page to obtain a head motor for a Sony SLF30UB beta vcr. I had quite a few replies, so I got in touch with a guy who said he would sell me a complete head assembly for said beta, however, he did not come up with the goods. If anyone in the UK has either a head motor or complete head assembly for sale I would be very interested!! Could you please let me know the price p&p etc.

Thanks.Regards.Richard Sleeman.

I have a number of prerecorded, NEW Beta tapes of "Popular" movies. What might these be worth and how can I get these sold?

For $300 bux you can get either an SL-2000 or a TT-2000 at this place...

Or for the same $300 bux you can get a Coke machine...

I own a Sony SuperBeta SL-HF750 that has an intermittent problem of not fully loading a cassette tape. The tape is threading to the correct position but the arm locking assembly does not seem to lock it in position and the tape is retracted. When the tape is thread in position then Function Cam (S) does not stop and continues to rotate until the LS Assembly automatically retracts.

Has anyone else experienced thids problem? I have a service manual but it does not discuss problem troubleshooting.

I know nothing about Beta, folks: What I have is a 2-tape Gone With The Wind on Beta that is in great shape. It is in its original cases, beautiful, movie art on front. I love the film, but no one around here seems to have a player, so I would just like to sell it to someone who will use and appreciate it. I am not out to make money by any means so a little something plus whatever shipping is will be fine.

I can be contacted at jeminijad@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Lets just consider the HF900 in upstate condition (with pic of course),400$ wouldnt hurt so much. I did 700$ on similar item, feels like a flame but worth buying.

This snail expects to sell an SL-HF900 (no remote, manual, or box) for $350-$400 and doesn't even show pics! I bet he bought it for less than $150. Olive, where do these guys get the nerve?

Condiser yourself lucky to get channels 37 & 38. My Sony Betas at the most can only get up to 36. The SL-2000's tuner only really gets from 2-13 on the VHF frequency which translated to up to channel 21 in cable.

Hi everybody. Haven't posted in awhile (been busy at UWGB) but thought I'd check in. I brought both my RCA VJP-900 VHS and Sanyo VCR-4030 Beta VCRs with me to campus, but the VJP-900 was somehow knocked out of whack in transport, and when I got it here, it would no longer play tapes. My trusty 4030 survived the journey just fine, and my room-mate and I are now both enjoying the superior results of BETAMAX whenever we record a show. The only drawback is that, presumably due to differences in cable TV technology now vs. 1985, its tuner only recieves channels 2-38 and 61-99. I cannot use it to tune in channels 39-60, and thus cannot tape anything off those channels.

Boby/Olive,

Surely the only thing that creates a daughter board is the fact that they are hanging off a motherboard. Don't know much about where fathers and sons get a mention.

Daughterboard somewhat identical to old saying 'piggyback card'.
