Kevin,

I don't know if you had the Sanyo VTC6500 model over there in UK. Their main issue is cosmetic because the flexible rubberized cover over the front control switches goes hard over time and breaks away so I made up replacements for those by printing the key information on adhesive backed paper and protecting the top surface with clear contact paper.

I have also fixed a few recently with broken load gears or that had jammed. The grease goes hard over time and the friction increases. I saw one the other day however that had jammed because someone had managed to slip in a tape when one was already loaded which was unusual. I guess the tape reject flap had jammed. The broken gears can be repaired if they have not completely broken in half by using a pin and glue technique.

cheers Noel

Steve:

No my friend your behaviour on here IS the problem.

And where has anyone on here stated taking peoples money.Yet another innuendo.

I think you get a big kick stirring things up don't you?

Some are beyond help I feel.

Each to their own.

Time to move on.

Steve:

What's the matter my friend you can give it out but it seems cannot take it.

You come on here accusing people of ripping people off and stating NOT to communicate or discuss things off this site because of past dealings you've obviously had with rogues on here,that we know nothing about, and obviously many years ago.

Then when myself replies and states this fact you accuse me or protesting?!!!

The reactions you are getting is because of the quite frankly insulting and beligerant remarks and orders you are throwing around.

Those of us here who can will always help out another enthusiast in whatever way we both decide NOT YOU.

I also like the way you twist everything around to make you look like the innocent party.

You HAVE been on here before THAT is what I was referring to with my 'no comment' remark. I do remember you now with the same style and attitude as do we all.

Steve if you've been ripped off get over it and move on. Most of us have had experiences in our lifetimes of similar (try using e-bay )but we learn by them and move on. Can I suggest you do the same?

Other than that that's all I will say on this.

I'll send you some love too because I think you could do with this and maybe it will help you to go forward again.

OK you can fake me by copying my post, but you really know nothing of value to this page.

Have fun within your limits.

Now they are asking me HOW to clean the heads that they admit now are for the HI-FI and may be clogged.

Now they want me to advise them which ones to clean and how to clean them..If you don't know,stop giving advise on here.

Tell you what, A cleaning tape wont work.

You finally admit that the heads could be clogged is enough for me..

I'm not going back and forth with (( name )) calling because I give a simple fix to a problem.

You see folks..Don't try to take away business from these angry tech's on here, by giving simple fixes.. No money in that for them.

Have a nice day and stop posting about me..TY

Roderick,

Your quite right, but we don't want to stop an expert giving out some good advice.

Steve,

Tell them how to clean the heads properly without damaging them and how they know which are the HiFi heads or the video heads and does it matter?

Sorry folks for making the suggestion to just clean the 2 HI-FI heads on that SL-HF950. .

I see we have another repairman Roderick.. who is now name calling me for my post.

OK, don't clean those heads..Let someone replace them with used heads or if lucky new one..

If your tapes are degraded and clog the new heads , just do as said and clean the 2 HI-FI heads.

Have a nice vacation Roderick..and take a chill; pill..

Oh dear, if the spam attacks on this page weren't bad enough we now have the rolls back - yeah!

Knock yourself out Steve, I'll be back in a few weeks and hopefully you'll have grown bored enough by then to let things go back to a helpful page for enthusiasts.

Trolls, ignore them and they'll go away.

Noel,

2 of the heads are for the Hi-FI which I guess you either forgot or just don't want him to know and can become clogged by degrading tapes

I guess telling the poor sole to clean the heads is not cost effective for you?..

Ill try to stay out of your Betamax business on this page.

This is why I originally posted about the past on here..Now you all see why

Steve,

One rookie suggestion about cleaning the heads in a total of six posts is not going to make you the grand master of this site any more than spreading innuendo.

If there is a problem with what people are suggesting or doing for others then I have not seen any evidence of that from posts on this site in recent years. What we have had are abusive comments from some wanting to make trouble rather than help.

All the best in beta for the true enthusiasts.

cheers Noel

oqie, Just try cleaning the heads properly on the SL-HF950 first and see if that solves the losing HI-FI.

If you have a problem just let me know on here only..No off air emails..

Kevin, I am confused, now you Both say what I stated about bad dealing is now familiar?

Lets talk about Betamax's and stop the girl talk back and forth about being familiar with the goings on here in the past.

I just brought up facts about bad dealing and had nothing to do with anyone on here now..

Hey Kevin - This all sounds a bit too familiar.

Steven1025@yahoo.com

I never mentioned any names that are currently on this chat page..

Only the "repair" people from the past..

Stop defending anyone on this page.. Sure they are all honest.

As Kevin said, no one should ever send any monies to anyone until you receive the unit back and repaired.

Let's all calm down...I regret even mentioning anything about crooks from the past.

Unsure as to whether or not Steve's comment is insinuating anything against any particular individual, but I would like to take this opportunity to state outright that I have only ever used the services of KEVIN LAMBERT from this site, and he is 100% genuine in his technical capabilities, and is a very nice person to converse with too.

Without Kevin's expertise, my Sanyo Betamax machines would have died a long time ago.

Steve, if you have had problems with a specific person or persons in the past, it would be helpful to let us ALL know, so we can be aware, and who knows, maybe get answers...

Steve

And we all appreciate the heads up.

I don't know those you mention either, so just as well.

I just find it surprising some send people they don't know a vcr to be fixed AND the money too.

You only ask for monies when the work is done.ANYONE asking for both at the same time should be eyed with suspicion,in my opinion.

OK Kevin , Maybe Andy Sanchez and the other group were the last one on here that received machines and money, but the units ended up being sold on eBay..

I just tell the folks to beware that all..They can send machines and money to everyone.

Nothing personal to any of you.. I just have a good memory of what went on here...
