GarethAm i right in understanding the Sanyo VCR connections are causing you the headache......?All you need is a twin phono cable, a BNC socket(for the video connection on the vcr) and then either a scart (switchable in/out) or two more phono connections ( depending on what your DVD recorder has).These cables and the BNC sockets can be had very cheaply from mail order electronic/accessory supplier catalogues such as CPC e.t.cBy the way the Sanyo 5150 is an excellent choice for the task at hand.........very good in all respects.Hope this helps................Kevin

I recently purchased a Sanyo VTC5150 - as that was the model I had growing up- with the intention of copying old beta tapes to DVD. However, I'm stuck with the audio/video outputs on the vcr- can't find cables compatible with the modern av inputs on a dvd recorder.

Can anyone help, point me in the right direction or suggest a beta model that does have compatible audio/video outputs?

Thanks all.

I'm amazed at the set of features of that VHS Beta Max SL-5400. Not only does it have a clock set button, it sports a power switch as well. Wow !

Dave. Yeah the SLO-323 is a BI speed only recorder/player. The upgrade model SLO-325 is a BI recorder that plays all three speeds.

Your always learning when you repair SONY SLC9s.

I have had two faults on the same mint condition machine this week - both involving the load mechanism. This particular machine has replacement metal gears.

The first problem was that it decided not to accept tape. Turns out the belt that drives the "load ring assembly" was a bit stretched and perished and the drive gear polished by wear. I just scuffed the V in the drive pulley and it worked again. ( I didn't have a spare belt but hat would be the best cure.) The machine does a little shuffle on the load ring at turn on to confirm the mechanisms position.

Second problem looked like a faulty cover slide door. ( the one at the front. that closes over the cassette hole when a tape is inside.)

The tape caught the door on eject and made the mechanism pop out of alignment. ( The plastic drive arm jumps off the pin lifting the tape assembly toward the centre of the machine. )

The culprit was a broken rubber on one of the levers pressing against the top of the cassette and holding it in place during load and unload.(one each side) This fault allows the cassette, under spring tension, to hit the cover door and jam it.

The machines are getting to an age where the rubber parts are getting hard and breaking so I guess that means more faults to look for.

Hope this helps someone else. The info might find its way onto Palsite C9 info eventually.

Jeff,

Thanks for your kind offer, I have emailed direct.

Glen, I checked and I have a 611 remote and a 615. Neither appear to have VCR functions. The 612A looks interesting.

regards Noel
