Hi. Can anyone help me please?I have a VO-9800 which is playing up.When I recieved it, it had a tape stuck in it. I removed the tape following the guidlines in the service manual, and the player started working as expected. I was able to insert the tape, play it no problem, shuttle back and forward, jog works no problem, however once I hit stop the damn thing freezes and gives me "Error 02". According to the service manual this is a tape slack error, the tape certainly isn't slack. Could it be too much tape tension? Has anyone had this problem befor? Basically I wanted to ask befor I go nosing blindly through the service manual in case someone could say..."Oh yes I had that problem, do this..this...and that...to fix it."

Thanks in advance.

Gareth :-D ░o░the tape certainly isn't slack

Walter, It sounds to me like your BVU -950 does not play Low Band tapes.That would explain the loss of colour.I'm not 100% sure, but I do seem to remember reading that the 950 is only HB and SP compliant.

You can double check this by looking for the model in the equipment page of this site, it should give that information in the spec.

Hello everyone.I'm new in U-Matic stuff by just getting a BVU950P. It's a great machine especially when it plays SP tapes. This works fine so far. Now I had to playback some older Standard U-Matic tapes. They all come without colors. I've tested the playback on an VO-5630. Everything is OK and with color. Only playback via BVU950P ist black/white. Can somebody tell me what's wrong. As far as I know BVU950 does play SP and Standard Tapes. All tapes and machines are PAL.

Hello..I'm looking for the service manual ( with schematics) for the Sony portable U-Matic recorder VO6800 or some help to put it back to work. it is turning on ok, but the control panel doesn't work ( none of the comands and none of the warning led's). when I turn the power off then on again with a tape inside, it will start making a series of loud "clacks" and pull the tape around the video head,stopping a while after with the tape nearly loaded as if it was going to run, then nothing else hapens. video head spins fast when this happens and the capstan motor also runs but everything stops at the same time. sometimes it will return the tape back toth e case and eject. sometimes not. there is also a loud signal ( continuous tone) on the earphones and audio outs.sorry for the long post. I'm out of resources with this one and not willing to scrap the machine. any help is welcome. thank you

Hi,here is a long shot: Just bought a Crosspoint Latch 6119 vision mixer at auction, but without a power supply. Could anybody help me with a pin-out of the PS connector or the required voltages? Any other information would also be highly appreciated.

If you reply to my e-mail address, please remove all numbers or my email filter will delete the message, I've had quite enough SPAM.

Thanks, Roderick

I used to work on UMatics. In my spare time I edited my family's collection of cine films onto three UMatic masters.It was a real labour of love but the masters looked great. I have a VHS copy to watch but I would dearly love to copy the Masters onto digital.I am looking for some kind soul (or hard-nosed business) in the London/Essex area with a UMatic player who could put the masters on miniDV (or I could bring my camcorder round to hook up to record them).Of course, I'm happy to pay for the priviledge.RegardsSteve Cox

Well, i just found out what the tracking knob is for. Der! (im a newbie)

now playback of a Recorded DVD yeilds a picture so clear that most would assume it's comming straight from the DVD player!

Very, Very happy!I'll no longer be collecting betamax equipment, I'm now a U-matic convert.

Have received a 60 minute tape for my vo-5630 to try it out.

works well. but, apon recording a few things to try it out, ive got occasional white specs flying across the screen, and recording off a low quality source, i have ghosting to the left hand of any bright colours on blacks.

From high quality source its not there, however, in some colours there are waves, just like when a tv is very slightly not tuned into a channel correctly. very strange considering im using AV leads all the way.

does it sound like all the caps have dried out and need replacing ?

I have a problem with a BVU 800 and wonder if anyone knows where I can obtain a manual for these machines.

The reason for the request is that the tape puller, on the BVU 800, has started to stop its travel before it starts to operate the ring which takes the tape around the video drum. However sometimes the ring is operated but does not complete its cycle. The result is that the machine cannot be used at the moment although everything apart form that still appears to be OK.

Thanks for any assistance or suggestions anyone feels able to give.
