I'm looking for a copy of a video called "Country Comfort." It dates (I think) from the late '70s or early '80s. Long ago, I saw it in Beta format, and I've not seen it since in any format. I'd pay a premium for this video. It features Rhonda Jo Petty.

Betamax for-ever: Since Beta is no longer made for the commercial market, why don't Sony do what Volkswagen did!!! By re-introducing the Beta at one of the major electronic shows to see what is the re-action. Let's face it, according to this messages on this and other Beta pages, there is still an enormous loyal Beta followers out there. So come on Sony, if the new Beetle is such a success, why cannot the same be done for Beta!!!

Dear Madness; Sorry I couldn't get back to you earlier but I have been ill. I don't have any easy solution to your problem unless your video out jack is seperate from your audio out jack (in which case there are a couple of relatively simple things you can try). If you have 1 output for both video and audio (I don't mean the RF/cable line output)then it will probably be close to unmanagable to locate the problem because you would need some sophisticated equipment (like a signal tracer -for example) plus prefferably the schematic for your machine in order to locate the problem. O.K now that I've told you this here is what I would do if I had alot of time in order of the easiest to the most timeconsuming and boring- 1.) often times the hole where you plug in your jack becomes corroded, so try taking a jack and pushing it into the plug about 8-10 times this may remove the corrosion. 2.) If this fails remove the top cover of the VCR and view the connection point fron the circuit board to the jack. If there are any loose wires resolder them, likewise if you see any cracks in the circuit tracings in the area of the jack. 3.) If no response yet try replacing the tuner. 4.) Finally if you have a couple hours to spend and nothing else has worked, try visually tracing all of circuits leading away from the jack looking for breaks or cracks in the solder(and/or a discoloration of any soldering point) and/or a I.C. thats loose in its socket. Its a long shot at best. I'm sorry I can't be of more help but like I said you really need some sophisticated equipment to do the job right.

Best Wishes ; Al Smith

Sony SL-HF300 BetaHiFi Betamax FOR SALE (NTSC - USA/Canada)

c/wRemote control (nice shape)and manual (ok, but some child has crayoned the cover)

The machine is black in color. Cosmetically it has light scuffing caused by other stereo equipment being moved across it's top. The front panel is in good shape, but is missing the flip down panel that usually covers controls on the bottom right.

The machine had been in storage for quite a few years (original owner) and required a good cleaning inside and out.

I had to replace the video drum motor, as well as the capstan pinch roller assembly in order to get the unit to operate to my satisfaction.

I recorded four tapes (2xBII, 2xBIII), and watched four other tapes that were made on different machines, before deciding the unit is A1.

I'm asking $185.00 US, including shipping within the 48 states.

Payment must be received before shipment, money order ONLY (bank or postal).

Any questions, or if you wish to make an offer, please drop me an email.
