SL-C40. I am now looking for dry joints on the boards. Can anyone tell me where abouts I need to look and if there are anymore ideas for the head drum not rotating such as component breakdown. Any help would be fantastic,

Many Thanks Barrie.

Hi, just got another hf950 and seems to be ok, it has a cracked sled but loads and ejects fine, so im not fussed with this issue, but it has servo board issues. It plays fast and bunches after the pinch roller. ff rew and forward pic search ok though. Just play. Does anyone happen to have a spare good servo board for a ub 950? Also it needs the front right hand controls flap which is missing, and the top tuner control cover.

I have a Sony SL-C40 and the head drum energises but wont rotate. I removed the nut from the bottom rotor but I am unable to remove the rotor. I assume it is a tight or taper fit. On rewinding it starts but heen stops which I presume is due to no head rotation. I read on this site that it could be conductive glue under the rotor. This machine has been stored for a number of years but worked fine before storage. Any help would be appreciated.

Would anyone be interested in blank (?) L-750 cassettes? I have 2 plus a L-125 Beta Hi-Fi Demonstration Tape 1983. I want to clear the house and not fill the landfill. Pay for minimal (?) mailing cost and it's yours. I live in South Florida.

Hi - just asking for some general help. I have an old Beta Machine, a Sony SL-8000. Works not too badly, picture is stable, but has a noise line in it. Line is adjustable in terms of position, but isn't able to be moved off the screen with the control.

What should I be looking for? Generally speaking, is this a head switching or head drum speed problem, bearing in mind the picture is otherwise stable, and plays at the correct speed.

Thanks,John

Ian, If the machine has been stored for a long time, the best advice is to keep it in a warm room powered on for a while.The 'DEW' light means the sensor doesn't like the humidity level much and trying to play a tape could cause it to stick to the head drum.Try leaving it turned on for a day or so.How are the rubber belts in the machine?

I remembered I have a Toshiba Betamax video player in the attic. It is a V-9600B. When power is applied it powers up but the DEW light comes on and nothing else will function. The equipment is running however and parts are rotating. This happened to me once when moving house and it cleared on its own. I understand this is a dampness detector. Can this be overcome to allow the machine to run? or could I by pass the component?
