I've just bought a JVC BY-110U camera and a Sony VO 8800 portable U-Matic SP deck. Are there any known issues when connecting thecamera to the deck. Does anybody know if the tape return signalfrom the camera works (I've heard there are different pins, aSony / JVC compatibility issue) or where I can get (or even download) service manuals for the aforementioned models.Thanks & kind regards,Berny.

if you do not see a red plug anywhere, look for the round hole and fill it - then you should be able to record

Hi all,I have a Sony VO-5850P and a VO-5800PS U-Matic unit and I am wondering if it is possible to convert these machines to high band? I'm not sure if they are currently high band or not.

Does anyone know f a spare parts supplier in Australia for these models?Many thanks in advance.

WANTED THE ADDRESS(E MAIL IF POSSABLE)OF A FIRM WHO SUPPLIES 19" RACK MOUNTING EQUIPMENT FOR UMATIC RECORDERS
For sale: Convergence 200. This is an A/B roll edit controller. It is configured to controltwo players Sony VO-5800 /50 (44-pin?) and one recorder Sony BVU-800 (RS-422 Sony protocol).If you can pick it up it is for free. If not you pay for the transport in advance. The unit comes with all the manuals and cables. I never tested the unit but it should be in good working order. The controller is CTL based.
The VO-9800 is able to play back LO-band. It is not able to record in the LO-band mode.
Can anyone tell me if the Sony VO-9800P can also playback Lo-Band cassettes or is it just a Hi-Band and SP machine ?
Sony VO-5630 in working order, some cosmetic blemishes. AUD$100.00 (or best offer) - buyer to pay shipping/postage or pick up from Eastwood, Sydney, NSW.
Comes with power cord, and user manual. NO other accessories or tapes.
Hi everyone, I have sound problems with my Sony 5630. When I record through the usual line-chinch inputs, the sound is very distorted yet very low volume. When I do the same thing in Channel 1 Dub the sound is perfect. Where could that problem be, what components are failling? Playing is flawless, dubbing as well but ordinary recording is barely audible and worse than bad fm-reception driving a car in a tunnel. Adjusting levels or limiter doesn't affect it at all, except from changing from low volume to inaudible.Any help appreciatedRobert

Apologies for the broken images etc on the site at the present time. The web server suffered an aoutage today and we are working to restore the site.
i am looking forsome info on a panasonic ag-7450 video camera
The AG-7450 is not a camera, that unit is a dockable SVHS deck for ENG/field use. ITs often confused for the name of a camera, but it will dock directly to a WV-F250, 565, and to the CLE -200. 300 with an adapter.
Since these systems can appear in many different configurations its hard to put a price on them. A ballpark figure: $ 800 -$1000 for the camera head, lens, ENG Viewfinder, AG-7450, and case. A studio viewfinder, power supply, battery and tripod will probably cost you more.
I just got my hands on a Sony VO-5600, believed to be in working condition. Does anyone know where I can find a manual for it? (Does anyone want to buy it?) My email box fills up with junk mail all the time, so if you respond and it bounces, please keep trying.

Simon: To transfer from umatic, or any other VCR, you'll need a serious capture card for your PC. Don't go for the cheap ones as they will loose you a lot of detail. You'll need a large SCSI hard-drive, standard drives are too slow for video capture. Cables: BNC for the video output of the umatic machine and either RCA or XLR, depending on the umatic model, for audio. If you plan to do a lot of transfers without any editing or changes, you may be better off purchasing a dedicated DVD recorder.
I am looking into setting up a system to copy our umatic tapes onto DVD via a PC. Does anybody know what hardware/cables etc I am going to need to put the output from the umatic player into the PC?

RoderickThe BVT500 TBC requires advanced sync connection to the VTR. The mode switch on the front of the VTR should be switched to TBC.
The BVU-800P is the PAL version of the BVU-800, otherwise absolutely the same.
I HAVE A PROFFESIONAL U-MATIC H BVU 800P, I DO NOT SEE ANY 800P ON THE LISTINGS, DOES DIFFER FROM THE BVU 800
I have recently acquired a BVT-500 to work with my 5850/RM-440 set-up.The problem I have is that the output signal ever so slowly scrolls, about 2-3 lines a second. And not smoothly but in little jumps. It happens both in DUB and Composite outputs.I can't find any adjustments in the manual. Suggestions anybody?
I just bought a Sony VO-6800 portable recorder on E-Bay.It did not come with a dc power cord or battries.I have finally been able to make up a dc power cord to connect to my ac power supply and the recorder. The machine powers up but does not run.My question is, do you have to have a tape in the machine in order for it to run?Thanks to anyone who knows the answer to this question.Richard [email protected]
Help! I've got a BVU-950 that won't record any signals onto tape. I'm thinking that it's the BC board or the SY board.
Has anyone had this problem before. I don't have another deck to swap cards with, so please help.
Roderick: thats the way a BVU-800 is made - its not as hard on the heads as you might think
Charlie: No - the BVT -800 is designed to work with the BVU series Umatics as a TBC only.
Now I have a question: Have a Fujinon Remote/Rear zoom control and want it to work with a Canon Lens...Seem to remember its as simple as swapping a couple of wires, anyone know more than this?
The Media Archive for Central England (MACE), the regional public sector moving image archive for the UK Midlands is seeking working video equipment across a range of formats.
We would especially like to acquire a working Hi-Band Umatic.
Unfortuately we do have an equipment budget but would cover transport costs. Any donation of equipment would assist in MACE's work to preserve, document and make accessible the moving image heritage of the Midlands.
Hi all,I'm looking for the pinout and the signal specification for the 33 pin remote connector on the series 5,7,9 U-matic machines. Can anybody help?Many thanks in advance for any kind of help. Norbert

I have a BVU 150P portable that has been in storage for a couple of years or so,was working perfectly. Now when powered up will only play and record in monochrome. Anybody got any idea what the problem could be?
Need some advise. I have a BVT 800 being offered to me. I (simply) want to preserve some older VHS martial art tapes to DVD.
Will this Sony BVT 800 adapt to a standard VCR and correct the signal for output to my RT2500 video editor? Cannot seem to find the answer other than it works with a BVU unit.
If any suggestions as to an optimum way of acheiving this goal would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance for any information.

Every time I try to get a "page not found" message, either by typing in the adress, or clicking on the link from my Favorite Places list or the PALsite homepage. All the other links to the U-matic, Betacam and V2000 chat pages on the hompage work.
