Can I have my home movies, recorder on BetaMax, converted to CD?

My SL-HF950 does not keep it's timer record or day/time settings when there is a power cut. I think the internal re-chargeable battery needs replacing. The one in my SL-F1 Tuner/Timer unit, which is obviously an older model, still works perfectly! Can anyone advise me where I can get a replacement battery for the SL-HF950. The original is made by Sanyo, and looks easy to replace with the use of a soldering iron.

I have noticed a few messages regarding Sony producing a new Betamax machine. This would be great and I am sure they would sell a large number. If an average 950 now fetches upto 550 there is obviously a demand for a quality deck. C9s etc are good decks but once you have a hifi player its hard to go back to mono or linear (useless) stereo). How do we put pressure on a company like SONY. Any ideas.

One more desperate and probably final plea - surely someone out there has at least made an attempt to extract separate Y/C output from a Super Beta machine - specifically a Sony SLHF950? Is there a point at which you can obtain a separated signal before mixing down to composite video for output? Please, please enlighten me!

I have a sony beta model no. SL 5600. In the playback mode the tapes dont play at the right speed. It goes from fast to slow and vise versa. Any idea what problem could be? I took it to two vhs dealers with no luck!

DESPERATELY REQUIRED! Someone to repair a HF950 back to it's former glory. It probably needs new heads or re-alignment of the present ones. Any recommendations?

Well it looks like I may have already sold my Toshiba Betamax. Still waiting for the check. I have an HFP -200 HiFi Processor Unit that hooks into the back of the SL-HFR "HiFi Ready" Series of NTSC Sony Betamaxes. It's missing a few buttons but it works fine. If anyone has an SLH-FR VCR but never got around to buying the HiFi upgrade or if your processor is burt out, this migth be for you. Only $50 + shipping. The manual survived and is included with the unit. If you have the HFP-100 you might want to consider buying this unit and transfering the missing buttons as this unit will allow you the recieve stereo broadcast and the SAP channel.(the HFP-100 doesn't)

I have a Sony Beta SL-5400 machine that I purchase new in the 1970's that i attempted to have repaired at an "authorized" Sony repair center to no avail. I would like to know if any one has any leads on a "do it yourselfer" repair manual that I might obtain or barring that anyone who would like to purchase the machine "as is". The problem seems to be mechanical in that some of the levers will not depress. Please email me in either case.

Have a sears 5309 beta vcr and about 50 tapes, a few blank, but most are recorded on. Think we are going to sell it. Does anyone have an idea on it's value, or where I can find a value on it? It's in wonderful condition. Where can I get a manual in case we keep it?(Haven't quite finished watching all the movies yet!)
