I have a large collection of Beta tapes. Many are "bought" movies, and many were taped off TV. James Bond, Westerns, etc. I no longer have a tape player, so I don't know what some of them are. If you are willing to pay the shipping, you can HAVE the tapes. I just hate to throw them away. I have never typed a message in a chat room before, so I'm not sure what I am doing. Anyway, if you are interested, please email me. Thanks.

I recently purchased about 100 beta tapes without the cardboard sleeves, and they are all very dusty and most of them have labels that I would like to remove because I am going to record over them. Anyone know what would be the best method to clean and remove all the labels from the tapes, or should I not bother? It probably can be very time consuming.

I recently found a Sony SL-5000. The play mechanism works but the picture only imtermittently appears and the audio is slowed down (women sounds like men, men sound like walruses). I cleaned the heads but it didn't help.

It sounds like the motor is running too slow. I think this is the case because what little picture there is disappears when I mechanically slow the drum down (by lightly resting my finger on top of the drum as it's rotating).

I read a post somewhere where someone talked about adjusting the "capstan free-running motor speed" on their circuit board. Does anyone know if this is my problem? Or have suggestions on how to fix it?

Short of that, does anyone know of a decent repair shop in San Francisco that would take a look at it?

The VCR belonged to my grandfather. He has some tapes that we would love to view, but can't without a workable Beta player :-)

Thanks in advance!

Researching information on the Sony Betamax for a universtiy project lead me to this chat page. I am hoping that you will be able to help me with any information on the situation around the corporate disaster of the Sony Betamax. I can see that you are all great betamax fans, so I am hoping that you can point me in the right direction for some information.

To: Oldgye- Try putting the correct time into the clock(making sure the "TIMER" switch is off first). The buttons are on the front of the deck. You have to reset the clock every time you have a power loss. The timer runs on the clock and my be turning off the time without turning it back on again thus shutting off the power! Allan A. Smith

Hi,

I wonder if anyone has any tapes (any format) which might contain any recordings of Philip Schofield and Gordon the Gopher when they presented Children's BBC in the mid-late 1980s.

If you do, please get in touch, as I am eager to get as much footage as possible. I can buy tapes, or simply copy them if you prefer, but please offer me anything, no matter how short!

Thanks in advance,

Rob Moss
