SLHF2000: Was just at the Sony Factory Outlet Store in San Marcos, Texas and they had two refurbished SLHF 2000s for just north of $500 each.The clerk told me that they see them on a more or less regular basis.This is another source for "new" betas if you can't find them elsewhere.

E.N., check out the 1000 power supply. It's built around a big STK IC regulator and when this one fails then you get a partly dead machine

Beta SL-HF1000 recently died on me. I placed a tape in it and pushed the play button just prior to the tape completely cycling in around the video drum and the machine went "plunk" and has not worked since.I got the tape out but it just does not want to do anything. Does anyone have an idea what I may have broken on this machine. I want to save it at all cost. Is there a "miracle worker" repair shop out there somewhere? Thanks.

last november someone from here latched onto me with the idea I could supply them with a "theatre beta" and I cant remember the guys name but he didnt seem to believe me when I said I lived in australia, never seen one, only heard of one ntsc model, and here we have pal and they never made one in pal well looking through EBAY and I found the thing he was after, so I hope this message finds you and you might find this link of use? pity those ebay things are 99.9 percent in the states and ntsc!

One of my machines is labeled Toshiba model # V-M410 (NTSC), what is it equal to on the palsite. I would like to know more about it. What is it worth? Can the older beta tapes be sent somewhere to be re-taped to be used in the new Beta-SP machines, I have a greater need to use my tapes in the new machines, sorry Beta fans.
