Hi Kevin, well, I also asked this woman for a complete carriage assy for a c9 as one of my 2 c9s has nylon gears, one side of which broke 2 weeks ago..she offered me the bar only, no cogs, for 35! I am, if anyone has one, willing to pay 20 for a COMPLETE c9 carriage assy, plus shipping from anywhere in the world. Must have metal gears though. I would rather just remove the whole unit rather than mess about replacing the cogs and trying to realign the mechanism. If anyone can help me out, just email me.

Stuart:

Nothing new there my friend.They had a C9, no service, no gurantee or returns, no accessories and was asking 800 or best offer!!!!!!!!!!Asking for that sort of money and then seeing their 'item as described' at only 4.7 out of 5 is worrying to say the least.Someone definetley trying to cash in on the rarer Beta items.Also i think you'll find the seller is a female. I don't think a superb condition, with all accessories, SLHF950 would get 800 !!!

I wish them lot's of luck.they'll be needing it:)

Mac1, there are two black prods which are spring loaded on the right hand side of the cassette bay, about 1.5cm from the side wall and about level with the pinch roller. One senses the erase protecton the tape, the other senses the tape present. Are they both there?

Yes I know about Laser Vision, if your reffering to what Laserdisc was called in the 1980'sI still collect films on the Laserdisc format and own a mint cond 1996 Pioneer CLD 2950 to watch them withI have four suppliers of movies As for machines and repairs, only one I know of is Adept Electronics in Blair Athol, South Australia. not too far for me to driveThey can still source parts and repair Pioneer and possibly other laservision/laserdisc units

Mac1 - is the tape threading up? This is done while the drawer is closing believe it or not, but you have to take the cover off to see it being done. If you hear any mechanical whirring noises and a couple of clicks while the drawer is closing then the tape is threading. I am betting it isnt threading though. If so the tape present switch could be faulty making the deck think there is no tape. This is just a guess though!

Sorry to come back again, please treat it as a PS sparked of by thinking about the bigger picture during and after drafting the above. Despite having demonstrated to myself that I'm a dead loss at creating websites, I could provide content for several ideas including Laserdisc and several jazz sites (including one which might make a very small amount of money - I do stress small) if someone else could do the design and setup. Once again, direct communication after your initial response to protect the Palsite, or even better, just contact me directly in the first place.

Does nobody know anything about Laservision? My feeling was that people interested in one superior vintage format might well be interested in another one. I believe there might be a need for a website along the lines of the Palsite but dedicated to Laservision. I'm not volunteering at this point as I think I have already proved to myself that I'm c**p at designing websites! Meanwhile, I'd really like to hear from anybody into Laservision. I would of course correspond directly, it wouldn't be fair to do it on the Palsite.

Hello everybody. Today I received at last my PAL Betamovie BMC 100, but the courier messed it all!! The camera came with a broken viewfinder. Does anybody know how can I replace the viewfinder from another NTSC Betamovie I already have?

Thanks in advance,Spiros

This is hugely off topic, but I hope I'll be forgiven. Does anyone know anywhere in the UK I might be able to get a vintage Philips Laservision player repaired? I've reached the limit of my ability on it. The Net hasn't proved very helpful, especially as a number of products and technologies have hijacked the name. Can anyone help?
