I have a NEC VC-N40EU Beta VCR and 50 betatapes and 25 VHS tapes. I am selling it for $250.00 if anyone is interested. It is a well built heavy front loading VCR with remote. It works great and has a good picture. I also have a NEC Surround Sound Processor [Dolby Pro Logic. This is a processor only [No amplifiers]. It has 4 preouts: 1 front channel, 1 center channel, and 2 rear channels. It is a high end processor and excepts an analog input from any VCR. This was a $1000.00 deck when new and also comes with a remote [$275.00]. I can send pictures of both upon request.

Hello Betaworld!A year or so ago, I bought a Sanyo VCR6400. The rewind and fast forward worked when they wanted to. It has just gotten worse. I saw in the PAL-site help section that this problem occurs when the motor goes on the VTC-5000, 5150, 5300, 5350, and 5400. Is this the same problem Ihave with my 6400? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I can't tell the dates you are interested in but you might be able to find what you are looking for at some of the PALsite links.


The Total Rewind site does contain a lot of good historical information which I think covers what you are looking for.

Hope this helps. Martin

I recently lucked out, a person traded me a stereo VHS for his almost new (only had ten tapes to go with it) SL-HF900 Betamax. He had stopped using it and heard I used Beta and he made the offer. It is a great machine. I really lucked out on this one.

Joe, About your BCM660, you might try to open the camera up, and take the tape door assembly out. This might work, but I'm not sure. Good luck!

668 not bad for a 950, my dad gave me a Sony SLV715 horrible deck, I need to get audio fixed - I'll wait until Panacronic dies. I tried its remote with the 950 Frame,1/10th,Normal,2x,fast but it didn't do the 1/5th, (or timer).

Does anyone want a NICAM on 950 item for PAL Site.

Also whats PAL DVD like? Might be the answer for all of us vhs haters
