The Panansonic M1 format (or Recam as it was also known) is a very rare format that never took off, it came out in 1983/84 and was in competition with Sony Betacam. The M1 format machine is component using YIQ, rather than YUV. The transport runs at 6 times the speed of a VHS deck and uses ordinary oxide VHS tapes. I do have a machine but due to its age it is not fully functioning and is purely a collectors piece. There is also an ENG version the AU-100, designed to dock on the back of an AK-400 camera.

Jank, when the V200 uses the small silver coloured electrolitic capacitors, they can cause the problem. Those horrible cap's start to leak over the years and can give you all sorts of problems. I had to replace ALL the silver cap's in my Sony CCD-V900 camera. You can smell the electolitic acid. It is worse when you heat up the connections of a cap with the soldering iron when you want to remove it. It is not an easy job to replace the cap's. It is easy to damage the tracks on the PCB.

Tapes, there's an outfit called MVS (I think) who sometimes have posts here ...look through the archives....

Your V2000 isn't a three chip cam. It could have ben dropped or other wise mechanically damaged and it's really anyone's guess what's wrong. Possibly a defective CCD but equally well it could be a signal fault... This message board (as far as I know) only supports basic text.. so yes uploading stuff to a website and giving us a link is a good idea.

Sorry - my evil computer produces return-codes which are incompatible with this message-board-system. I tried to make a circle /separated with ligher(longer) and darker(smaller) vertical lines...Maybe I'll try to upload some pics on my webspace.

..Just wondering :I got a Sony CCD-V200E "Video8 PRO" (made around '86).It's case is wrecked, on one side the whole plastic is basically missing.

The problem : It produces green bars (soft-edged). They're about 7, along the screen.

They appear to darken from left to right. I tried to put the lid on, in order to check if this effect it caused internally - the bars stayed there.

When I move the camera along a spotlight - the parts of the picture where the green bars are react more sensitive to the light (i.e. the whiteness/oversaturation is stronger.So a *round* spotlight appears like this - +$+$+$+$+$+$$+$+$+$ +$+$+just imagine the "+"-lines as being the darker/less sensitive array(smaller radius) and "$"-lines as the green-ones (light appears w.'bigger' radius)

What's going on ? Is this a triple-CCD-cam with defective G-CCD? Or do I just need to do some adjustment.

Thankful for any clues

Hello !Just 'd like to ask - anyone offering some VO-9850 case-parts ?I am looking for * the top cover* the back-panel* the bottom-plate* the front-panel* and the IO-circuit-board on the back with the TC-in/out sockets.

... comes to it - a whole frame would be appreciated as well (w/or w/o panels)So if anyone wants to keep the electronics from a spare-9850 and doesn't need the case, or has a defective one, I'd be interested.

The case should look rather "ok" though - at least not worser than mine (home.arcor.de/jfkrecords/EVI/ - if someone interested how some parcel services tread insured pakets..).

+ Nearby (Germany) would be a great advantage, especially if someone want's to offer me something, and doesn't want/need to remove it's inner-parts.

Thanks in advance.

James.Is that an offer? Do you have such a machine? If I remember correctly the AU300 is a portable MII unit that is dockable right? MII was Panasonics answer to Betacam, but never quite reached the same popularity which makes them cheaper to buy second hand.Good pics though.

Anyone ever come across a Panasonic M format VTR model AU-300, that uses vhs tapes. Any collectors want to own such a machine?

Nigel, when menu number 200 is set to "enhanced", menu number 205 displays the drum hours and menu number 206 displays total time.

Paul, I don't know the BVE-600 but it seems to me that when you don't use the audio card you can do audio cuts only. (The recorder does the switching). When you want audio dissolves (a/b roll and fade in and out) you need the audio card. (Than the audio card does the switching, fades and dissolves). You allways can do your a/b roll and fades manually with an audio mixer.

Hi. I have a BVT 2000 which I would like to connect to a BVU 800. I do not have the multicore cable, so will need to use the other connections. Can anyone tell me which sockets on the BVU go to which sockets on the BVT.

Thankyou.

I have just acquired a Sony BVE 600 Remote editing consol. I will shortly be getting 2 x U-Matic players and 1 x U-Matic Recorder. However, the BVE 600 does not contain the Audio card. Is it essential that I obtain one or can I edit without it. In other words, how can I edit between two tapes so that the audio follows automatically?

Also, does anyone know of a site so that I can download the BVE 600 user manual?

Please help!

Confused Paul of Kent.

Pardon the obvous (to the experts around here) but can you use theRM440 edit Control with the following:Sony playback only unit: Looks like VO5630 but with no record buttonas a source unit.Sony VO5630 Record unit to record the finished copy after editing?.

If the RM440 is not suitable, then which edit controller is suitablefor these machines, they must be a type, as they look pretty darnsimilar, almost identical twins!. So there must have been a edit controller for these sometime?. Any answers Chaps?

Louis:-)
