Please HelpNew to BetamaxI've just aquired a Sony C6. On playback I'm getting a white flash across the screen every few seconds and the audio is slow if you know what I mean. I've adjusted the RV 001 but this makes no difference.ThanksBob

Jim, If you are in the UK you can buy new Sony Beta blank tape from most Sony centres. I have even found that my local Dixons and Currys still carry some.

Hi! My best friend's betavision made by Sony died on her, and she wants to find out if and how she may go about buying another BetaVision machine, or if there is an adapter that she can play her beta tapes on her VHS. Please e mail me at the above address with price and availability.

Thank you.

Yes both the Sl-T50 and SL-800 produce true NTSC ( 3.58 MHz colour sub-carrier ).They also can be set to give Modified NTSC ( 4.43 MHz sub-carrier).

Im thinking of get me an SL-T50ME or SL-T800ME. Do someone know if they produce an "true"NTSC signal out, that I can connect to an external converter? Ive read that the older SL-T7ME give a non-standard signal, which vill not work properly. Which of the maschine was the best, and are there any spareparts left?Thanks, Per.

This isnt about beta, but I just purchased an old u-matic edit suite to go with my 2 existing u-matics, assorted beta's etc, it came with 2 players and an edit deck, as well as a simple edit controller, but I cant track down a manual for the controller,its a sony model RM-400CE, its more of a remote control unit than an edit unit, but it does have assembly editing cut ins cut outs etc

any help would be greatly appreciated,thanks john

Hi: Hope that there is help out there. I have a Sony SL-340 unit that has worked well for about 10 years. It recently "ground to a halt".

I brought it to Radio Shack and other repair shops, but no one could help me, not even Sony. My entire collection of 100 vintage movies that I have recorded over the years remain unviewable.

Does anyone know a repair shop in the Long Island or New York City Area that I should contact?

Thank you for your time and assistance. A fellow BETA faithful.Chuck

Good deals like that won't happen often I guess. About an hour ago, I just procured a SLHF1000, working and looking like new (it was owned by a nun), along with the remote and some tapes, for a ridiculous $75, canadian funds !!!
