Hi, according to the PAL site pages the Sanyo 9300 uses BNC connectors for video and phono sockets for audio.

Something like this should do..http://www.maplin.co.uk/scart-plug-to-phono-and-bnc-plugs-1.5m-4702

As this is a stereo cable you might want to add this splitter at the VCR end to ensure that the mono output from the Betamax ends up on both Left and Right speakers.

Hope that helps.

Hi Tarik:

Sounds like the very common 'hall effect sensor' failure.I would recommend anyone with a later Sony vcr finding out how to access the sensor and remove this glue BEFORE the sensor fails.I do this to any Sony vcr i come across.It can be repaired/replaced.Where abouts do you reside?

Tha 9300 issue.There is a special connector you will need to screw onto the video out of the vcr.I have four of these.I can't remember the method of audio output/input (5 pin din?)You then obtain a scart connector with phono connections and a twin/single phono to phono lead.If you drop me an e-mail i can discuss this further.What country are you in?

Hi, i have a sony C9 that is working, but for the fact that it will not run for more than a few seconds before stopping, at first i thought that it was the take up spool not working, but it is o.k. it stops in F.F. and rewind as well, has anyone had this fault and managed to cure it? i would appreciate any replies to this question. thanks, tarik.

With a converter bnc to rca and cable rca to scart or with a converter bnc to rca, cable rca to rca and converter audio in / video in to scart, I saw a rca / scart with switch in / out but generate noise (not shielded cables), with welder and tin you can do a special cables for betamax

Oh no, here we go again. Another troll trying to stir up trouble because they have nothing else to do with their empty, useless life.Pal, we've been there, done that with previous trolls. Your IP address shows a server in Florida, but probably hacked anyway.Knock yourself out, have some fun than about something you probably can't comprehend.I'll be back in a few weeks when this will have all blown over.

Hi Chris

If you take a look at the technical section of this site, you will i believe see the info relating to what you require to sort out your issues.A small 'washer' will need to be fabricated to lift up the magnetic base from the coils.It has to be a certain thickness, otherwise it will obstruct the turning of the spools.Hope this helps.I take it by the model no you are based in the US?

whooooooooo, MUST HAVE HIT A NERVE..

Relax pal, IM not here to take away your repair bussiness..

As you said , no one in the UK or Australia or even in the US is scamming people..LOL

You guys give advice on these chat pages to help others repair their units.. You know that most of the time these people know nothing about electronics and you pull them into your web.

The fact that you would say that no one in the UK or Australia is taking advantage of anyone speaks volumes .

As far as the LED goes, what are you talking about and dont try to get off the subject.

Boy, Kevin, I didn't even know about you when I first posted my warning. What are you trying to hide?

Hi Bob

Let me get this straight.You have just appeared on this site and send out advice not to trust anyone offering repairs to their Betamax because you were apparently ripped off by some 'scammer'?You then enquire to me as to whether i offer repairs maybe in the hope that if i say ,'yes' then i am defending anyone who does scam?I think you've got quite a nerve.I help and advise (as well as one or two others) ,from our experience and knowledge of Betamax vcr's. I asked you a simple question, what make or model was it you had been duped into sending out , mainly to see what country you were in.Please understand this site is entitled PAL site , meaning PAL Beta vcr's.Sometimes US beta owners make posts here for help and a lot of the time it's not possible as discussion is usually for PAL Beta vcr's.Blank tapes would only be of interest for sale from the US as they can be recorded on whatever region they are bought in.I also find it odd you suddenly appeared( yes i do read this board frequently) and make these accusations.If you HAVE been duped then i'm sorry for that but let me assure you KNOWONE in the UK or Australia ,as far as i know has EVER done this to any Beta owner.

There has also been in the past, silly posts from certain persons, that if i remember rightly , went on and on and on about wanting a LED VU level meter for a Sony and not getting an answer.That posters name was Bobby.Coincidence maybe but suspicious all the same.I will treat this post accordingly.

Kevin, What make and model was taken from me by a scammer???

That's going to help me get my machine and money back????

I find it quite odd that you seem to defend this nonsense and I will ask you one question to find out where you're coming from.

1) Other than giving good information on this chat page, do you offer a service to repair Betamax if people send it to you?

Sorry to put you thru this keven, but your answer will tell the tale.

I'm new to this site and would appreciate advice.I have a SLC-9UB purchased in May 1984, together with over 50 tapes and I also have the service manual. I retired the machine some years ago when it suffered the mechanical breakdown that you describe on this site that prevents cassete ejection. I had previously replaced the video head, made internal repairs (successfully) to a 'sealed' DC-DC converter and replaced small plastic cogs in the eject mechanism with a Sony kit containing metal parts. I would now like to repair the machine to check through and archive the old tapes. Is there any source for the broken mechanical parts? If I can get the transport working properly I'll then go on to look at the electronics.Specifically, the mechanical part that has failed is 'Arm, holder, driving' part No 3-670-136-00 and I'm wondering if it was caused by failure of 'Switch, micro, S1 (cassette up)' to detect the end of that part of the eject phase.Before anyone asks, I'm a qualified electronics engineer, but from a different field, and this is not a commercial enquiry - the machine is my own and was our family VCR for many years!

Yes Kevin, I just checked after reading what you said. The rotor does rub against the coil and the only thing is that the tape wont play. So far it still ejects and fastforward and rewinds. I don't know what to do with it now.

Thanks for your response.

Bob:In regards to your beta scammer comments, there has been knowone on this site who has asked for faulty beta's to repair.I take it your in the US?I have also not seen any specific request here by any member asking for Beta's to repair.What make and model no did you send for repair ?Whilst myself and one or two others are able to do this as we have the knowledge and some years experience ,we willingly offer assistance to help if a beta user is struggling to find help to get their machine back to 100%.I certainly do not know of anyone who has scammed anyone here.I find you remarks a bit odd.If this did happen to you it must have been quite some time ago.

David, You sound like you had a few..But I think your saying that you should not give these creatures any money before they do the repair?

Only the problem with these things from the UK and USA is that they only want the Betamax, so they dont care if you send them money or not.

The Betamax you send them is s gold mine and will be on eBay before your first email begging them to return or repair the unit.

I bet anyone who repairs, also sells on eBay.. And thats is a FACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other than that ..have a beta day.. BOBBY

Hi Chris

Are you sure that reel motor failure is to blame.The Sony's allow the forward torque to be adjusted.This would have the same effect as you describe if this torque is too low.It should be around 80 and you'll need a Sony torque cassette to check this.Also the reel drive motor bushing maybe worn.This too would stop the tape from returning to the shell on eject at fist and then stop it turning altogether at worst.It can also be repaired using a special sized washer to support/lift the reel drive spool shaft/magnet from the coils.
