A few months ago I purchased a Sony Betamax SL-HF860D on Ebay. It's condition was misrepresented by the seller. Although appearing to work initially, I soon discovered that this unit needed extensive repairs. The TV and VCR repair shop was able to find most of the needed parts. Unfortunately, it still needs a microprocessor, and Sony no longer sells this part, and the shop has exhausted its other sources as well. Therefore, I am hoping that someone on this site may be able to refer me to a source for the needed microprocessor. Failing that, I would like to know if the microprocessors in other Sony Betamax models might be compatible with the one in the SL-HF860D. I have an SL-HF70 that has other issues, but the microprocessor appears to be in operating condition. Any help of advice will be greatly appreciated. Please reply directly to my e-mail address.

Olive and Kevin:Thanks so much for your help. To access the broken part on my vcr you have to remove the bottom of the vcr and than remove the large circuit board. The leaf switch than can be removed via one screw. So that is probably the record leaf switch. My unit does not record as well as only plays for a short while. I will check out your suggestions Kevin. Thanks again to both of you for your help.

DewarsThere are 3 'leaf spring switches' in any Sanyo front loading Beta and two for a top loaderThe 1st is located near the pinch roller at the front edge of the left spool and it's purpose is to shut off the loading ring motor when it reaches the full loaded (tape threaded) position.The problem you would have if this was damaged would be the tape ring loading motor would over run.The second one is located in the left hand side next to the left spool and this detects when a cassette has been loaded into the machine (it's a mechanical one for a top loading Sanyo's usually gold in colour).The problem you would have if this was damaged or missing is no functions at all and no initialisation of the reel motor when inserting a tape.The third one is located on the right hand side next to the right spool and this detects whether the record prevention tab is present or not.The only problem you would have if this one was missing or damaged would be no RECORDING.If all the idlers belts and the pulleys are cleaned and new then you can illiminate these items.It could be the reel motor getting tired.It could be the small red LED sensor under the right spool having dust over it and not detecting pulses,very rarely is this part defective.I hope this helps and feel free to e-mail anytime............Kevin (UK)

I would suspect that the leaf switch you broke is one for the record tab detector since other transport controls still function.

Well after replacing the belts, idler and pinch roller, I have found another problem with my Sanyo 4400. The "leaf switch" is broken. Actually the plastic piece that attaches to one of the metal feelers has broken off. And of course the part is not available from Sanyo per Studio Sound Electronics. Their suggestion is to obtain a similar model for parts and hope the leaf switch is working or hot glue the part back on (but that would be a quick fix that probably would not last long. The Company has been excellent in helping me, if you don't mind the plug.

To refresh you all with my problem at this point, is that the unit now rewinds and fast forwards ok and loads a tape for play but shuts off after about 10-20 seconds. The tape does not advance thru the machine during the play function.

Does anyone know what the "leaf switch" is used for? Would this be the possible solution to my unit not playing?

Thanks again for everyones help.
