I have no idea if I am posting this note in the appropriate place, but hopefully someone can help. I purchased a sony platstation that runs by the pal system, but my television is ntsc. So, when I play my games they are in black and white. Is there a convertor that I could plug into my playstation that would change the signal to ntsc?

HELP REQUIRED FOR C7 PROBLEM. Got the deck out of the loft after a yearor so storage.When I packed it away it was working fine,but now it plays and records well, rewinds and fast forwards etc. But every time I eject the cassette the tape is not rewound into the cassette. I have ruined a handfull of tapes so thought I would seek assistance. Thanks in advance.

Hi all, Just a quikie about beta tapes. I have managed to onbtain a couple of the old sony tapes with black background and red letters with the old betamax logo. These were launched before any of the Dynamicron range. I know this is no real big deal but they are still fully wrapped.

Hello all! I'm not sure if this is a problem or not, but sometimes while using my SL-HF300 I noticed something that sounds like a motor reving up, and then stopping. It is very faint, but if I should start looking for a parts deck, I'd like to know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Can I repeat my plea for any help in getting separate Y C output from an SLHF950.

Also, and purely out of interest, does anyone know how the SLHF100 retains its tuner channel information? I have one which retained it without any degradation despite at least 6 years of disconnection due to a defunct power supply. I would have thought that 1985 non-volatile memory technology might be quite primitive, but perhaps not. That lapse of time would seem to rule out any capacitor-powered method of storage.

I have owned FM tuners which wouldn't retain settings for three weeks!

I am looking for a head cleaner for my 1985 Beta vcr.

Also need new np11 batteries for betamovie .They refuse to recharge any more.

To Anjelika,

Most people with experience will tell you not to use one of those cassette-type head cleaners on a VCR, Beta or VHS. They're abrasive and hard on delicate heads. Radio Shack, and a lot of electronics parts stores, sell kits that contain chamois swabs and head cleaning fluid so you can do it yourself. First, you take the cover off the deck, then hold the dampened swab gently against the head drum, and finally, rotate the head by hand. It'll do a much better job than the cassette.

For Sony Betamovie batteries, try the Battery Bank at http://www.batterybank.com. They sell aftermarket replacement batteries for the Sony's. Their model EPP-119 lists for about $78 each.

Also, from the Beta Informer:DON WALTERMANThere have been a number of notes lately about how difficult it is to get new batteries for the old Betamax Camcorders. I've been rebuilding my batteries. The Ni-Cad batteries inside the Sony NP-11 battery pack are standard sub-C size Ni-Cads. I buy them from EH Yost & Co. Their email is ehyost@midplains.net and their website is http://www.mrnicd-ehyostco.com Their phone number is 608-831-3443. In January, I paid $3.95 each for 8 batteries. Thats $31.60 plus an hour of labor to take the pack apart and solder in the new batteries. Make sure to order solder tab battereies to make life easier. The part number I orderedwas N1250SCRST. That means Sanyo 1.2V 1250mAHr NiCad. You must be extremelycareful re-assembling the pack so that it will fit properly inside the camcorder.Taking the battery pack apart is also a challenge. If anyone doesn't want their dead NP-11 battery packs, I'd be happy to pay the shipping for them. Regards,Dondwalterm@ix.netcom.com

Does anone know if you can use professional format BETACAMblanks tapes in either the ED CAM or the GCS-50?

I'm afraid if I buy either unit I won't be able to find any new blank tape.

THANKS!chrisgochris@webtv.net
