Hi Rob, regarding the problems you are having with your SL-C40, itsounds to me like there might be a problem with the idler. I thinkyour first move is to open up the machine is try and determine exactly where it is snagging. If you want to have a go yourselfthen try cleaning anything rubber in the machine with alchohol. Ifthings improve then you should think about replacing them.

can anyone help? I have a Sony slhf950 PAL and sometimes when I have recorded in the HIFI mode there is no sound in playback. When I switch the sound to NORMAL (MONO) the sound is there. This seems to occur on a wide mixture of tapes. Other than this the picture is always excellant. Any ideas?

I am a betamax fan living in St.Louis. I am interested in buying the Sony theatre model, SLHFT7, in any condition and an original copy of the movie "The Neverending Story". If anyone knows where I can find these items or has either of these items please email me. Thank ...

Does anyone have a Betamax player they can loan/hire for a few weeks? Ours is just about to go in for repair (knackered heads, I think) and we are faced with not being able to provide listening facilities for our 300 odd betamax tapes. We only use Betamax for digital audio, not video.(together with a PCM 701 ES).

Any leads/ help/ suggestions extremely gratefully received!

Hi, I've just bought a Sony SL-C40UB and it worked perfectly for a day or so but now whenever I eject a cassette, the tape snags somewhere inside. Complete novice here but very technically minded, is there anything I can safely do to remedy this, as I am keen to get this otherwise very nice machine up and running?

I would be grateful for anyone to e-mail me directly at the above address. Thanks!

Question: any info about the BMC-550k? I have a chance to purchase one, but know very little about this camcorder.I am interested in using it for shooting (not collecting), and wanted to try Superbeta as it is/should be better than VHS (and it is cheaper than trying to go to DV right now:)I am inetrested in the camera's functions, inputs/outputs, etc.Any ideas or links to sites would be much appreciated!

I grew up using beta - thats all we used. Well, everybody's grown and gone and my parents have vcrs on all tvs. I was rustling through some memories in the attic and stumbled upon the old beta - along with about 100 movies and home videos - we had the camcorder too....From what i can remember, the reason it was put up there in the first place was because after pressing play - it would start and then stop...as though something was not catching - my initial concern is findindg some sort of manual on line and if not in the library - ehat do i look for.

Hello, all, First I thought somebody should point out that sony's web pageno longer has a beta player on it. Does this mean it is not in production?Just thought you guys would like to know. Also I found a store the other daywhich had many sony L-750, and L-500 tapes for 5 bucks a piece. Iwas pretty happy as I personally notice a difference between the sony and Radio Shack tapes. The kicker is they also had about five or so SonyCleaning tapes. Is this something I should invest in more than onein, or are they still pretty easy to find? And for my last question, theyhave a sony slhf-600 for sale for $98 dollars, is this a good deal, I only paid $35 for the unit I have now, and that was after being freshly service, granted it isn't a superbeta, but it is hi-fi.Thanx for any help all.Perhaps the only Beta Fan in VermontJer

I have aquired 2 Full AV/Computer racks with 18 Sony SL-HF750 decks.The machines were used for TV production, and are conected via ribboncable. I beleive the decks were computer controlled, but I am totally unfamiliar with these systems. If any one is interested in purchasing,or can provide information, please contact me at bradal@guess.com orstang@thirdwave.net. The units are in Southern California, and I donot have manuals, or remotes. Thank you.
