Hello all,

Just finished replacing all the rubber in a SL C7. Rewind and review still fail to function. When engaged, it tries to rewind and the drum makes a whirring noise. Would this be an open inductor(L2) on the SY-11 as stated on the tech page? And more so, advice on accessing the coil.

SLHF 950 for sale...Unfortunately I'm forced to sell one of my two beloved HF 950 's due to lack of space. Just serviced, it comes with the original IR remote commander. In near mint condition. No manual. Service receipt included.Due to the sheer size and weight of the unit (and risk involved), I am reluctant to post this rarity, only to have it arrive DOA on some poor, disappointed geek's doorstep, so pick up only. See working. $1 100.Regards, Craig Felsmann. Brisbane.

I have a SL-C9 that runs perfectly except there is no sound. I've searched the web, but the only thing I've found is to check the diod D515 on the AM1 board for failure. That diod seems to be fine. Does anyone have any other ideas of why there is no sound at all?

Hi folks. I purchased a UVW-100 at a government auction some months ago. I did not realize it did not have a power supply at all nor did it have any manual. As such I have never had it up and running. I know absolutely nothing about these cams & bought it on a whim. Cosmetically it appears to be fine & it came with a Porta Brace bag (that I thought the battery, power cord etc. would be in) If you, or someone you know want a cheap cam .. contact me.. i live in Nova Scotia Canada

Roderick,

That's no good, I know how that feels. I once slipped a screw driver of the last tape guide and it hit the spinning heads of a new original SONY SLHF950 video head disc I had just installed. It killed a couple of heads nicely, instant no picture. Cost $445Au. Not happy Jan.

regards Noel

Sorry, tad busy at work at the moment.Did work on the head drum and wished I hadn't.Finally managed to get the magnets of and clear all the glue around the sensor.Very careful with the heads, taped a strip of chamois around the drum.Then everything went wrong.Put everything back in place and reconnect the cables.Now when I hit play the heads still don't turn, but it doesn't have the resistance it had before, the drum turns freely.And to add to the misery, I discovered that I still damaged one of the heads....

Hopefully I'll find some time on the weekend to have another look.

Thanks Noel,

Is that if you were putting the HF100 heads into the HF150 or the other way round?

James,

They are similar but the SLHF150 heads have two sense position sense/switch magnets.

You have to note which one is extra and remove it. To do the replacement job properly you really need a CRO and alignment tape.

Hi James:

I believe that's been mentioned before and i think noel said something about a magnet or something has to be removed first from the disc?Maybe Noel can add to this.

Hi guys.

I am just checking to see if anyone knows if the heads from a SL-HF100 will fit the HF150?
