I have a working Sony VO2800 and a probably not working VO2860A and a lot of once used cassettes in various lengths and large and small cassette size for these 70s machines. You can have it all if you can carry it away from the Nashville, TN, USA area. These units are too heavy to ship and the tapes (four boxes of them) too bulky.

With regard to JR's problem with the power plug on a Sony VO-4800; it is a Din plug but there are so many variations of these (and they are poor things too)that I'd be inclined to use the socket in the battery compartment which is a standard 3mm power plug. You probably couldn't get any (NP90) batteries for these anyway; I use a lead acid battery pack which plugs into this socket.

Hi Folks,

Just got a couple of DXC-325's with composite backs. I currently have a lowband edit suite with TBC which I was thinking of replacing with a BVU 950 and some other bits. I know that an EVV 9000 will dock with a 325 but did they do a Betacam back ?, although a beta edit deck would be way out of my price range. (don't think the docking plug is the same as BVP type ?) Also has anyone had any experience with the EVV 9000, what is the second generation copy like. Should I look for a BVU 150 instead ?Someone even suggested using a DV walkman instead like the GV-D200. Any observations would be appreciated.

Steve

Hi I'm hoping someone out there might be able to help me. I have an encoder with an VLan serial remote that I connect to my digibeta player. I have just got a Sony VO-5630 Umatic and I want to control it from the encoder via the Vlan serial remote. The only trouble is that the Umatic's remote is not serial (I'm not sure what the conector is called), I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is a converter from the Umatic remote to the VLan remote or if there is any other way of doing it?

If anyone can help it would be great,Thanks Ricric@octaviatv.co.uk

I'm looking for a working U-Matic VCR for my collection of 38 U-Matic tapes I scabbed from a TAFE garbage bin. Is there anyone in NSW Australia or close to NSW who has a working U-Matic on for sale. I'm willing to pay up to $100 for one in working order and I don't care if it's a 70's top loader or an 80's front loader, as long as it's in good working order. If anyone from NSW or near NSW has one please email me at ac_dc_rocks@hotmail.com.

I have a Sony VO2630 U-Matic. All functioning, motors, winds, sound etc, except no picture -though it came back for about 30 minutes last time I tried it, after standing for many months, the went again!.FREE...... to anyone who wants to repair it or use it for spares. However as anyone who has experience with the old top loaders knows, this is VERY HEAVY, even compared to later U-matics. So it would have to be someone who would have it delivered by myself (see below) can collect, or have it shipped at presumably quite a cost.I am in Lancaster, England, and do travel quite extensively on business however, so provided you don't live too far out of the way, or cann meet me somewhere sensible, I could deliver. Having fondly used it for many years I wouldlike to see it go to a good home having now been replaced by a VO5630 and VO5030!.

I have a sony vo-4800 that requires a power supply. I'm not interested in battery power, but would rather use the 12v dc input instead. My question is this: What type of conncetor do I need? It appears as though it is a 4 pin din conncetor, but the pins/slots are all at odd angle to each other. I am completly unfamiliar with it. It is possible that it's not a 4 pin din connector, but then what the heck is it? Any help would be greatly appreaciated.

CAMERA FAULT.Before anyone shouts at me, I know I shouldn't be posting this here but I don't know of any other site with as many technically minded contributers. I have an old SONY CCD_V200E Video8 Pro camcorder. Its just developed a fault were there is a green and maroon verticle band on the left hand edge.( obviously more noticeable with the lens cap on. If I rotate the camera 360 degrees the band on the monitor and the viewfinder stays put. does that mean the fault lies in the amplification stage and not the CCD ?. Just need to know because if it needs to go for repair I don't want to get ripped off. Other than that picture still absolutely perfect for a standard video 8. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can email someone a screen grab if it would help.

Thank you all ion anticipation.

Hi Mike,

better late than never here a delayed responce. I don't think it is a analogue/digital issue. I don't know the NV-MS4B camera. I do know the WJ-AVE5 and the BVU-800. If the camera is a one CCD/tube camera you can get much improvement by using a two or three CCD/tube camera (and lighting is very important). It also would be much better if you can leave out the WJ-AVE5.

Old professional/broadcast equipment is still better than most modern consumer/prosumer equipment.And going digital only will improve your end result if you can spend a lot of money. If you want to produce something serious on video don't use consumer or even prosumer equipment! I started on HI-8 consumer equipment and I still wished that I had spend that money on old professional/broadcast equipment. So go for (lets say 10 or 15 year old, because it is affordable) professional or even better broadcast equipment. The BVU800 is a good start.

Hello every one! I have a small problem.Telcom Research T6010 LTC SMPTE Reader Insert.

I just bought and hooked up a Telcom Research T6010 LTC SMPTE Reader Insertto a BVU820 3/4 deck with Timecode. The 3/4 Timecode output is connected to the Telcom's Timecode input. When I play a tape with Timecode the Telcom TC reader won't read the code off the tape. It only reads it when the deck is in fast-forward or rewind! I've tried generating code from my MIDI interface to the Telcom reader, and it reads the Timecode with no problems! I've tried different cables, I made sure the deck is sending out code...my audio gear locks-up with it immediately! The 3/4 deck Timecode connectors is RCA. I see that the connectors on the Telcom are XLR. I have an adapter which I've tried, but I still get the same problem. I've also checked out the URL link http://www.timecode.com/t6010.html & downloaded the PDF manual, but it was little help.I do think the Telcom Timecode reader works because it read code from my MIDI interface, but I'm wondering if anyone know's of any solutions for this problem. If anyone know's of Telcom's web sight or a number or email where I can contact them, I would deeply appreciate it.

Thank you.....LSD

Re: Sony BVU800P Umatic Recorder.

Has Anyone Experienced This Problem ? Basically, I am using analogue equipment to make a training video. In studio, I am assemble editing each scene.And I'm having difficulty getting an acceptable quality, especially on the dubbed VHS copy. Currently, I have the following analogue system:Panasonic NV-MS4B - SVHS - Analogue Camera.Panasonic WJ-AVE5 Digital AV Mixer.Panasonic NV-FS200B SVHS Video Recorder.Sony BVU800P Umatic Recorder. I'm using the Sony Umatic as the Master recorder, and feeding the camera signal output, to the Sony, via the mixer.I will then later dub copies direct from the Sony Master, onto VHS tape, for distribution.

I am doing research into the effects of binaural beat and high frequency sound. The preliminary work has been done and the results are promising. Unfortunately, to complete the tests I need to obtain new software that will do the required job and I have been having difficulty finding software that has the frequency range that I need.

I am trying to find an audio generator program that will generate a minimum of two tones at the same time, each tone set at a different frequency, one tone each to right and left speakers. Both tones must be as accurate as possible (to a 10th of a hz) and be able to be set anywhere between 500hz and 20khz.

Can anyone put me on to a program that will meet my needs?

Hi, I was wondering whether or not Ulead has a program that can creat chapter tracks on a VCD. Can I have the name of the program and how it works? If Ulead doesn't have the program, are there any other programs available that can carry out this function? Thanks for your time.

Roger,

OK. If you are not in a hury we can have a look at it this weekend. I have the manual and repaired a couple of VO-8800 in the past. We can mail outside the chat page in Dutch if you want.

Steve it looks like the black level of the red tube is to high. If that is the case the camera won't auto black balance and you will have red in the dark areas. If you want to realigne a (tube) camera you need grey and colour charts (and they are expensive) an oscilloscope and vectorscope. This is a job for a specialist. If you are able to check the black levels for the three tubes you can try to re-aligne this. Before you touch a potentiometer mark it so you can always return it to the old position.

Hi,

I just picked up a Sony VO-5850 and it plays a pre-recorded 197 KCA-60 tape fine,but I can't record on it. Neither can I record on a 187 KCA-40 tape. By not record,I mean the record light doesn't come on and the program is not recorded.I have all the manuals and the red record buttons are in place on the tapes andthe program source is coming from a VO5600 and all the settings are correct.I can record from the 5850 to the 5600 but not from the 5600 to the 5850.I can even record from either machine to a separate VHS machine.

The record light on the 5850 comes on when there is no tape in the machine.So, are these the incorrect type of tapes for recording to a 5850 or is there a problemwith my 5850.

Thanks,

John

Sorry this is only lossely related to Umatics ( well its plugged into one anyhow) I have a DXC M2 that works fine in Daylight, but in doors the image is very red like the gain needs turning down on the red tube ? When the lens cap is on its still red. The auto WB works fine but when you try to manually adjust the black balance it won't do it and sort of locks up. Unfortunately I have no service manual and there are more pots inside than at Woodstock !!! Are any of you out there familiar with tube camera's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again sorry for posting it here ( If all else fails it will make a nice anchor.)

I guess by meter you mean the "bat" meter ?in that case the main supply(14v)is there ,so no problem on that onein the supply area of the bottom pcb thare are some points marked 5 v , 10 v and 6 voltwhere the 6 and 10 volt aren't there just a minor 2 volts going up and down about 0.5 volts

Roger,

Check the meter on your VO-8800. One setting tells you if the supply voltage is high enough.

Hi, Can any of you give me advice what U-Matic I should start with. I thought that a portable machine (ebay Item # 1350587940 ) would be best to start with (so i can have the camera recordings go straight on to umatic to prevent extra loss normally involved with converting video from one format to another) and then build up the system as I find more machines.

Hi Umatic fans. I have got my BVU 150P out of the loft. It is great condition and it fired up straight away and went into play, pics still good. Unfortunately when I try to eject the tape it tries and then the "tape slack" light comes on and it just wont play. I had this problem a while back and the service guys thought the external power supply I had did not have enough juice. Now I am using a charged battery pack and light remains.Any ideas anyone? Help appreciated.

Umatic 14 pin to 26 Pin JVC (is the 26 pin called betacam type Plug). I want a lead to enable me to use my KY15 camera with my umatic portable but people want to charge silly money even for used leads. Can someone point me in the right direction were I can get information on the PIN OUTS for both types of plugs so i can have a go at making one up ( or two).Many thanks
