Has anyone got a pdf of the user manual for the Sony SL-hF100ub? That doesnt want money for it?

Mr Jim, it is a bnc video connector. If you have a stereo machine, the following link will provide the lead you need to connect to a scart tv. http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?TabID=1&ModuleNo=4702&doy=8m9 It is a two way lead, meaning you can also connect from a scart vhs vcr ot the inputs on your beta as well.

I just bought a Sanyo Betamax and it has a video input which I have never seen before. Can anyone identify it and maybe let me know where I can get the corresponding lead or adaptor for it. You can view a photo I've taken of it at this address www.anime-games.co.uk/images/mystery-input.jpg

I'd swap it anyway if you already have a spare.

Hi! I have solved problem of my non remote responsive c9. .I was about to swap the tu24 board when I noticed cn101 and cn105 were connected the wrong way round. Swapped them back and it now responds to the remote. Also though I noticed the board is damaged around the screw nearest cn101 - the corner is broken off and has damaged the print in that area, however all functions do work. Should I replace the board anyway? Obviously someone has tried to lift the board and forgotten or not seen that particular screw.

I guess I hit a nerve, but I don't really understand what you said.

You reference to anal-rectal kind of sums up what you are and what you buy.

In the future try to purchase items that don't cause you shame and cause you to

use filthy language. /////Thank you

"How could you even let people know you bought it?"

You see, there are these things called "computers" that have a device called a "keyboard" attached to it that lets you type "messages" onto what are known as "chatpages". Seeing as you have mastered the task despite a chronic case of cranial-rectal occlusion it's a very easy one indeed.

Das Imperator:

it's apparent that you haven't aquired any Betamax in some time.

The market is strong on working Betamax's.

You must not have read that the seller only "sucessfully powered up the unit, but we have not tested."

Sounds lke a lovely project and lots of fun trying to get belts and getting this portable ash tray to even load a tape..

it's a shame that people put this type of grabage on eBay and others who know nothing thinks it's fun to purchase this refuse..

I saw this and thought what a shame if someone gets this dissapointment. How could you even let people know you bought it?

Best of luck and please, stop crowing about this thing..

Hi guys, need a little bit of advice on a c9 problem. I have a c9 bought off ebay recently which had a tape stuck in it and consequently a knackered loading mech. I have replaced it and also cured a rumble on the audio which was nothing more than loose connection on the ace leads on the pcb. However I have found that the vcr will not respond to the remote in any way at all. My other two c9s respond as normal, so the fault is with the c9. Any ideas?This c9 has the original fault label from a repair shop still on the bottom panel, dated 2nd december 1988, and no wear line across the upper drum is evident! Also there was no flaked oxide in the usual places round the threading rung. I would say it had very little use before the loading gears broke and somehow it has survived 19 years since in storage somewhere and is in remarkably good condition. It just won t respond to the remote and other than this is perfect.I intend to sell it on but would like to resolve the remote issue if possible. I do have a spares donor c9 I can swap the relevant board from, I just need to know which board handles the ir processing. Or maybe it could be the ir sensor itself?

Haven't acquired anything Betamax for a few years now so this ought to be fun...


Just won a VCR-7300 HiFi porta-beta for the start bid of ten bux - the eBeta market must be cooling off. It's fairly complete and includes the NP-1-shaped AC power brick so even if it's otherwise a dud I'll at least have an extra power pack for my portabetas.

In other news, My Betamax page is less than 120 hits from the 10,000 mark...


I really ought to work on some updates...

I guess I'm just talking to myself on here, I have a few issues with a few beta vcrs and no one ever replys.

Question last asked, a few messages ago....Looking for parts in the US for a Sony SL-5200..

Problem two. It seems that the SL-5100 and 5101 have common problems. I have two and both seem to have the same problem. Vertical problems. Picture on both vcrs are not stable if the signal from the tape or antenna is not perfect. the V-hold goes nuts. The SL-5101 has a noise bar a the top of the screen with the picture bending when tape is playing, If I hit play and stop, after a few times it will play without the noise bar. I tried to replace the IC001, as this site says (board says IC1 where the chip is) nothing changed. All blue sanyo caps have been replaced too...

Please let me know.....

Thanks for the info on colour problem fix for that machine. Sounds like I will have to get the guy to send it too me so I can replace the chip as you suggest.

Cheers Noel

Firstly - , let's talk NEC BETAS!

Up for discussion, the NEC VC-739E, is my 4-head Beta HiFi that has lots of nice features (e.g., 3 slow motion and 2x speeds). I also happen to have 3 others, two of which had the same problem as the last one I won. In other words, here is a machine that I know very well, know exactly how to fix, and even have an extra remote and manual to use with it. The machine is cosmetically excellent, so clearly there is no particular reason to believe that the machine has been dropped or been abused.

I’m sure you all will be delighted to know that within 20 minutes of opening the box, without spending another penny I had the machine working like the day it was made. It was cleaned, nicely aligned, and every function worked perfectly. The extra VC-739 remote also worked it perfectly.

Some on this site have commented that the VC-739E made by NEC is the best non-Sony Beta HiFi ever made.

Oh and by the way,I also just bought a Sony SL-HF900 for $49.99 from the Cleveland Browns football team in perfect shape along with a dozen L-750 tapes. I wonder what you all must think of the buyer who just paid more than $380 for the same machine tonight?

That's it for now, back to scouring the auctions for SCUMMY sellers of Beta so I can let you know about them. Doc/MaxBeta/Grace
