I recently added a National AG-6200 to my kit but it has a strange problem. Still picture is perfect (as perfect to be expected), slow motion and fast motion are fine but when at normal play speed the picture disappears behind tape noise. Tracking doesn't help. Ideas anybody?
I recently bought a National AG-6200 as an addition to my edit kit. The problem is that it has a perfect still picture (as perfect as that technology could get on VHS), fine slow motion, fine fast motion but when you drop it to normal speed it is a shocker! Can't see the picture for the streaks, looks like it is totally of track, but tracking doesn't help. Ideas anybody??
I found an old Panasonic NV-9600 u-matic machine whichstill works but the loading-mechanism (toploader) seems to bebroken. Has someone a service-manual? thanks
Anybody know where I could get some information (servicing manual) for a National Panasonic M7 video camera. Thanks.
Anyone have a VP-7020 manual in PDF format (or other format) that you could share with me?Thanks
I have a VP-7020Is there any way of getting a better signal out of it than a plain old composite video?Is there a U-Matic Dub board I can get for it?Any way of getting component out?Thanks
Can't Matt or someone just delete it, and then re-publish the page to the website without it?
Is it possible to filter out messages like the illegal software offers that stuffed up this chat page earlier this week?

I'm trying to find some information about setting the EE line level on a VO-7630 which has RCA ins and outs. We don't have a manual for it, and my manual for a9600P which has a similar audio card, says to adjust line at a different card which the 7630 doesn't appear to have. Any help with PCB and pot #s would be appreciated.

HELP... Looking for spares and belt kit for a JVC BR-6400TR can anyone help?
For your application I wouldn't buy a portable machine. They only take the small tapes so what happens if someone sends you a standard size tape? I would also make sure it is a multi standard machine. USA records in NTSC where the UK records in PAL. I would look for a VO-5630 or VO-7630. Both are reliable workhorses and pop up on Ebay often. Or look for local Broadcast traders, a bit more expensive but you get a well maintained machine.
hi there - I am pretty inexperienced at anything detailed to do with U-mat players - but am looking to buy one as I compose alot of music for ads. I have seen a VO-4800 fro sale - which I am aware is portable - but have no idea if it is Loband? If it takes normal sized loband tapes? (i received some reels from the states once and they were small lo-band u-mat tapes)... I am assuming you can both record and playback on them? The one I have seen advertied does not have a power source (12V battery pack? Or can I run it from the mains as well with the correct trabsformer? Are these expensive?) can anybody help me with this endless list of questions? Thanks! dan
i have a sony dxc-m3a how do i enable the internal sync. i have tried to use the video out but it wont lock in. i was told the sync generator is also internal. please help!!(i'm new to the high quality stuff
First we must know what we are connecting it to, and what protocol they're using.
actually there are lots of module in markets; maybe made in taiwan would be cheap....
Is it possible to control RS232 machines with an RS422 edit controller? Does such an interface exist, If so, does anyone have a schematic. I would be very interested in trying this.

Hi,How do i find out the hours run on a BVU 950P ?
Thanks in advance...
I have a JVC CR-6060e U-matic VCR and was wondering if anyone knew where I may be able to obtain some spare parts for this. The rubber wheel which drives the take up spool has turned to goo. I have another 6060e and the same thing has hapened to it. There are some other rubber components that look like they do not have long to go either. Any help would be much appreciated. - Thanks, John.

Hello. REF BVU-150 Portable VTR slack tape problem. Here is a method of removing cassettes when ejection is not possible due to tape slack from Sony manual. Remove rear panel and upper case panel. Remove upper lid of cassette compartment. Push down on EJECT key until it locks. Turn pulley of threading motor by hand so threading ring rotates in unthreading mode. Hold down the cassette so that when the unthreading mode is completed the cassette doesn't rise in order not to damage the tape. At the same time as holding up the protective tape flap open, allow the cassette to rise by raising your hand slowly, removing any tape remaining in the machine carefully to prevent damage. Take up any slack by turning the spools by hand before allowing the the tape flap to close.
I am looking for a BKU-150 Time code generator for the above macine.

I,am trying to find out what the specification is of the dub in/out connectors on a VO-5800PS. It is obviously Y/C, but which format and can you connect this directly to a matching dub connector on a Pana NV 8500 VHS Industrial Machine, without an interface.
Greetings, all. Is there a place on the Web where one can get a list of all of the old Umatic model numbers and a brief description of what the machines are capable of? Like a catalog, maybe...
A few hints:1- Take off the caps lock, posting messages in uppercase only is considered quite rude.2- It would help if you indicated where you are living. VO-5850 's are big heavy machines you don't really want to ship halfway around the world.3- Do you want a PAL or NTSC machine?4- Don't post the same message twice. It is annoying and doesn't get you anywhere.

Hello everyone,I own a VO-6800 which has been working, until recently it breaks down. The problem was that I forgot to remove the cassette recorder from the video machine,while the connection to power was on, unluckily, I took the power connection off, and then when I wanted to switch it on the red light was showing on the slack (Tape slack) position. It became difficult to EJECT. However, the cassette recorder has been pulled out, but still I have the problem tolet the EJECT function as it gets stocked. My questions are:- Now that the cassette recorder has been pulled out, WHAT can I do to let the EJECT open up to video machine again.Does anyone has access to the Operation manual, in other words, repairation manual so that I can do repair it on my own. I would like to buy the repairation manual or copy itPlease I need a great help.Thanks a bunchEugene
I NEED TO REPLACE THE EJECT MECHANISM ON A VO5850PS, IS THE EJECT MECHANISM THE SAME ON A VP5040
I took a look thru the older messages on this chat page and though many people asked about manuals, there didn't seem to be any answer about where to find them! I just picked up a U-Matic VO-5600 and was able to record and playback on it, but I have a few operational questions that would be answered in the manual. Is there anywhere to download or order a copy of the VO-5600 manual (in the US at least)? Would someone be willing to send me a photocopy? Any pointers in the right direction would be real helpful! I'm pretty amazed at the quality I'm getting on recording and playback!
Hi all. I'm soon getting a 1970s Sony VO-2630 toploader, just need to know what year did these models came out?
Hi-can anyone tell me the difference between the Sony VP and VOseries decks? Specifically, the VP-9000 versus the VO-9850. Thisis going to be used strictly for playback- is there any real noticeablepicture quality difference between these two decks? I'm bidding soonso I'd appreciate any info as soon as possible. Thanks,Marc

Check to make sure the Record Protection is in place on the recording tape. It is a little round red or orange button on the bottom of the tape. Without this protection the machine won't record. If it is lost, replace with some sticky tape over the hole.
Also, I have for sale a complete set of service manuals for Sony VO-5630. It is brand new, I bought it when I had several of these machines but never needed it. Make an offer, but delete all numbers out of my email address before you send the message.

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.

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

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.
