You can use high-band tapes in SP machines. You will have high-band quality which is close to SP quality.


The time code reader/generator was optional for the VO-9800/9850. The reader/generator is positioned behind the control panel. (BKU-704 is a time code reader and the BKU-705 is a time code reader/generator) To operate the dial menu you need the users manual. A monitor connected to the output shows the data and items selected. (Don't forget to supply video to the input of the VCR). Maybe 15 is an error code. But the monitor screen will tell you that. If it is an error code and you want to know what it means I can look it up in the manual.

K McHugh,

The TBC can not be integrated inside the VO-9800/9850. You can only use an external TBC.


The VO-5630 uses the RM-420, RM-555 or RM-500. If you want to record frame by frame you need a timecode based editing system. The VO-5630 is not accurate enough. You can use for instance a VO-9850 or even better BVU -950 with its internal editing controllers.


The VO-5630 is low-band.

I have a Sony SL-HF400 that has not power to it. The removable fuse appears to be alright but there is a solderd fuse that appears to be blow. Could this be the problem? How do I get the power to work again? Do I need a new power supply? Can I get a schematic diagram anywhere? I would appreciate any help at all.

Thanks, Rick

Hey Chris!

Sounds like it could be a gear with broken/missing tooth or something is frozen/needs lube. You are on the right track. Check everything related to the tape loading mechanism.

If it should move freely make sure it does, look for anything unusual or broken pieces. Check all you can topside thats easy to access.

You may have to get under it for a really effective troubleshooting, prepare yourself for possibly mean dissassembly of the machine and write down what you do, because they dont make them easy to repair. Thats so you have to take it in for Service! lol.

good luck.

Dear all,

Is it possible to record onto Highband tapes (Sony BCS-20) using a U-Matic SP recorder,do they work in a SP machine or will only KSP tapes do ? How is the picture quality ? Thanks for your help, Berny.

Another thing about this Sony VO9800P - was the timecode reader an optional extra ? I have a tape with timecode that was made on a BVU800P... this VO9800 light's up it's "timecode" light during playback - but the display only ever ready the control track regardless if the switch is in the CTL or TC position for the time display.

Also anyone know anything about the "dial menu" - if I select it the time display flashes "15" ??

Hi everybody! I have a problem with an old 3/4" VCR: JVC PR-900E. The problem is this: when I insert the tape, the VCR give me the error message 72. The user's manual tells me: "supply reel motor stops". Sometimes I get the error not immediately after the insertion of the tape but a few seconds after I have tried to move the tape with PLAY or using the JOG/SHUTTLE wheel (both in FWD or RWD direction). Anybody can help? I cannot find any service manual. Sometimes the VCR works fine... if I move by hand the tape wheels a little and insert the tape again, sometimes the VCR starts.. but I need it works fine always! I know this VCR has no value at all now because of new digital format, but I would like to keep it in my studio fully working (it has so nice colored button lights!) Hope somebody can help me. Thank you!

Does anyone have any info on the Sony VO-9800P ? It has a T.B.C. switch - but under the control panel it looks like some boards are missing - was the T.B.C. an optional extra like it was for the BVU-900/950s ?
