I have two used VO-5800s for sale that have been used primarily as spare decks (very clean with low hours). One is rack mount - the other is full chassis. I also have several VO-5850s in the same condition.

I'll also ship (almost) anywhere and entertain (almost) any offer for the items.

I found this site trying to find out about Sony Video equipment that I just bought at auction. In addition to a bunch of other stuff, I bought 9 Sony Cameras (2 w/lenses) 4 CMAs, 3 VO8800 Portables, 2 Waveform monitors, 2 VO-9800s, 1 VO-5850, 4 BVU-800s, and 6 VP-7020s. Can anyone give me a rough idea of what all this is worth? It was pulled from a working studio and everything I could test appears to work, but I don't have the cables for the U-matic equipment so I couldn't verify the condition.

Simon, do you still have that VO-5800PS operating manual?Jim, did you find a VO-5800PS manual?

I've got a VO-5800PS, no manual, no cables, lots of used tape. My aim would be to convert the material recorded ages ago using this Umatic into something for use in a web archive. But first things first, anyone know where I might get hold of an operating manual for VO-5800PS? Has anyone found one on the web (that would be great ... )?

thank you, Katherine

hi,i've got approx 1000 umatic tapes from 10 mins to 75 mins,all are used and i can erase and de label them if anyone is interested in taking them. if anyone knows of an educational institution either here (UK) or abroad that can use them they can have them for free as long as they collect or pay for the carriage. there are SP tapes as well as hi band in amongst the lot and i would hate to throw them in a skip if new homes can't be found. to clarify, i'm not asking any monies for these tapes just the carriage charges if you can't collect.

My BVU-150 has recently developed a 'tape slack' problem. Not always but about 2 out of 3 times, after loading the tape the 'slack' light comes on and nothing works anymore. Only solution to remove the tape is to open the machine and unthread the tape manually.

Any suggestions what this could be and how to fix it?

Hi there, I've got a PAL/SECAM VO-4800 portable for sale / giving away. Seems to be used by the dutch television a long time ago (case still reads: NOS, hehehe). I live in Rotterdam, Holland. It's a lowband using small size cassettes. It seems to run on BP90 batteries, but I'm not sure as there's none currently in the machine. It looks ok and comes in a carrying/operating bag. It even seems to work fine, but unfortunately I have no small cassettes to test that. I got it with a DXC-M3a together with 2 camera cables. It's for the giving away if you have a nice story, or trade for something fancy like a portable Panasonic VHS VCR ? Bye for now, Eric

I was wondering if anyone might know of a supplier that sells 3/4" tape cases in bulk for the small U-matic cassettes. I have found some that carry cases for the large cassettes, but we have a large collection of 3/4 tapes in both sizes that need to be properly housed before they can be accessioned. Is it possible to safely house the smaller cassettes in the larger cases?

Matthew, you and Youcef (qui cherche un jeune fils de 18 anse) make a good pair. For starters, most of the correspondents on this site are in their twilight years and most of us can only just manage to type our names on the computer. That is why we are still enthusing about this obsolete crap that came out of the Ark. May I suggest that you ask this question on a more lively site such as "HTML for Swingers" where you will probably get a better (if not more direct) response?

Tony, the RF (off tape) output on the BVU is not a normal RF signal. It is for drop-out compensation when the machine is used in conjunction with a timebase corrector such as BVT 800 etc. However, there is no reason why your monitor will not work when the video out on the BVU 800 is connected to the composite input (could be phono connector) or scart input on the monitor. The monitor should be selected to AV or AUX or LINE IN (whichever applies). You cannot use the RF tuner on the monitor to locate a composite input. There is no RF output from the BVU for a TV tuner.

I have just purchased a Sony BVU 800P and the seller showed me it working through his broadcast monitor. I have tried to connect it to my domestic Panasonic TV using the video-in RCA socket. The signal appears to be incompatible. I have also tried connecting the RF out socket on the recorder to my TV aerial in socket. This also fails to work.

Do I need to buy a professional monitor or can the connection be made to work. Sony Broadcast tell me that it will work through a 'composite' input. But I do not know if mine is compatible.

Grateful for any informed advice.

Hi all.

Well well.It turned out to be a tiny break in the track around PS503. Allthough when I tested the board, the voltage was present on each side of the fuse , it wasen't going any further. That'll teach me to be too quick with these things, normally I check the voltage at several points allong the track to be sure, but for some reason this time I didn't. Oh well got the thing working now at least. Now I can get back to trying to fix the original skew problem.

Hi Rein.As it happens I do have the service manual.I have pleanty of electronics servicing experience but this is the first real U-Matic troubleshooting I've had to do.Hence why I posted on here first. I was hoping that maybe someone would be able to say "..Oh yes I know what to do." befor I got too involved in fault finding. Thankyou very much for your help. I'll guess I'll have to do it the old fashioned way.

Hi again.

I have tried your suggestion, and also the suggestions I got via e-mail (checking fuses PS503, 504, 601, 602 and other cables connecting to SY141B) but to no avail.I also checked the Reel motor driver board (PT9)and a couple of other misc. boards that may have been causing trouble.

However, there has been a fairly major change to the condition

Upon suggestion I also checked the operation of the VTR via the remote using my RM450 edit controller.In thi setup, all the tape functions work correctly allthough the motor still runs continuously and the display is still dark.Then for some unknown reason, when I pushed the "Entry" key on the RM450, all the function lights on the VTR panel lit up together. (play, stop, preroll, assemble/insert edit lights, etc)

Now they are always on whether the unit is switched to local/remote and whether the RM450 is connected or not. The motor still runs constantly, and the LED display is still dark.

Does this give you any more of a clue as to what may be happening?

Thanks very much for any further help you can give.

Best Regards

Hi all. Benn a while since I've posted anything I know.

I'm having a bit of a problem and I'm hoping that someone out there will be able to give me some advice please.

I have a VO-9850 which has, this morning, suddenly decided to throw a tantrum.

I was making some adjustments as per the service manual, and for no apparent reason after removing the cassette up tray the thing went crazy.The tray has been romoved countless times for adjustments and never given any trouble befor now. In fact I had already removed it a half dozen times this morning.

The problem is:

When switching on the reel motor is supposed to start running, it does this for just over a second when operating normally. Then the CTL/TC/Dial Menu display lights up.

However now the Reel motor starts running and doesn't stop. The display doesnt light up,and the machine will accept no input from the panel buttons.

If switched on with the cassette up tray in place, the above happeneds but the machine will take the cassette, thread to the FR-STOP position and hold. It will not accept any input.It will not Eject the cassette, so I have to remove it manually.

If I remove the cassette up tray and switch on, it imediatly threads up to the FR_STOP position and holds.

Since the tape transport operates as it should, but the machine is frozen I can only assume that something is not initializing at power up correctly, hense why the rell motor continues to run, and the display does not light.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this problem?I have the full service manual but while it contains a wealth of information regarding adjustment and replacement, it has no suitable trouble-shooting section.

Perhaps one of you guys with U-Matic service experience will be able to help me.I am now without an edit recorder which, as you can imagine, is making things in post production a little trickey to say the least.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Best Regards

Make sence?I am a live online broadcast closed captioner and I want to be able to use one of the Sony U-matic editing decks to be able to insert close captioning into pre-recorded video tape.Any help or ideas? Thanks

I have a Umatic VO-5800 and am having problems with the video. The audio comes out alright but I only get a blue screen when playing back a tape. I am not trying to record anything, I am only playing previously recorded tapes. this problem just recently started and I know the tapes I am trying to view are OK.

ThanksTim

I need a service manual for the Sony Umatic VP-1000 3/4" Player deck, (US version). I know this unit functioned, but the cassette receiverwon't go down all the way on the left side thus it won't contact therelease widget and play. Got to go in and fix, but need roadmap.

Any old school techs or engineers out there that still have the service manual?

Let me know.

I'm wondering about video tapes for umatic machines.I have a JVC high band umatic machine. It is very, very beautiful. We just stared at it for a few seconds when we first switched it on as we were aghast at the spectacular glowing machine.

Anyway, I also have a large collection of old umatic tapes. The trouble is that some of them appear to be low band, and some of them appear to be SP based tapes.

I understand that low band tapes are bad for the heads of high band machines. What about SP tapes? Is it bad to use these in high band machines too? Ironically I'm not sure if I actually have any high band tapes!

I suspect my umie may have been mistreated in it's former life.

We will probably have to carry the tank all over my house to film in various locations but other than that we are determined to try and take good care of it, so if anyone can tell me more about tapes, I would be grateful.

love

Freya

HI,I have a Sony VO9850P, but I can't make it asssemble or insert edit. All the usual stuff is correct, red tabs in, sync connected, video in connected, dub in connected audio in connected etc, but I can't get it to work. It laces up OK, plays back, jogs, shuttles, fast forward, rewind ,records when I press record and play together, all these work fine, but it won't insert or assemble. There seems to be some kind of modification/addition in the shape of 3 white buttons marked MENU, DATA and SET in red letters, under the CTL/TC and MEMORY switches. If someone can sell me a manual, or has any suggestions how to remedy this problem, I would appreciate their help. Mnay thanks.

Free to anyone who can collect. Philips N1500 VCR (first domestic VCR - museum?) and N1700 VCR with some cassettes. I don't think either work. 2 Hanimex 8mm cine projectors (one super8 - again both need attention). Bell and Howell video presenter (old and needs servicing). Various other old stuff which should be skipped but just in case someone somewhere can use it. First caller must agree to take the lot (what you do with it afterwards is up to you but it must be removed from my premises in Peterborough).Email me at [email protected] (remove the astrisk* - I have had to do this to stop spam; my penis is large enough already, thanks).

Hi. I've won a Sony VO-2630 Umatic on EBAY a few months ago and it was in perfect working condition but when it arrived to my doorstep it was damaged all no thanks to TNT couriers! Anyhow what's damaged is the cassette cradle as it's dipped in (one of the couriers must have walked on it) and the cradle won't stay down when I put a cassette in. Also the VCR won't function due to the fact that the main sensor light detecting cassette is blown. Anyhow I was wondering if there's any Australians here who might have a spare cassette cradle and sensor light for a VO-2630 as I would love to buy them from you so I can get my Umatic going again. If anyone can help, please email me at [email protected] . I'm located NSW, Australia.

Cheers

nooooo!!! Why does everyone throw out their old u-mies!? Ask around and give them to an aspiring young videographer who's worthy of making video the old way and not with some JVC DVcam and a copy of iMovie. Someone like me, LOL. :) Give them to your thrift store or something instead of tossing them away!

Hi Everybody

I'm retiring so I have to get rid of all this good kit.

1. Sony BVE 800 Automatic edit contoller with service manual and cables2. Sony BVT 500 Digital Time base Corrector. (This one can convert Low band to High band)3. Alta Pixis 2 channel TBC with effects4. Sony VO8800 SP portable recorder in mint condition, and Kangeroo bag.

I know this kit is more or less worthless, so to anyone who can use it, it's FREE!You can either collect it, I'm in West Yorkshire, or for the cost of the diesel, I'll deliver it on the UK mainland. This is a one off deal, I need the space urgently, so if I dont hear from YOU by Saturday August 9th 2003, IT'S ALL IN THE SKIP!!!
