Thanks Roland - that also explains why I can't get the menus up until there's some video coming in.

Just out of interest do you, or anyone here, know what the difference is between a black-burst generator, a sync-pulse generator and a genlock? As I understand it 'black burst' is a video signal that lacks any image information but still carries timing and colour burst signals... I'm assuming an SPG is different as my Beta SP can't record composite video input without the picture rolling when provided with black-burst as a reference input... does an SPG need to go on my shopping list?

Tom - the input on most hiband VCR's is also the reference signal unless you have a burst signal attached to the external sync in. Even then the selector should be set to external sync. This is causing the flutter when you disconnect the input signal.

I now about the 100/240 flapdoodle. An engineer I work with buys kit like masonry drills on Ebay from the US and buys 'step down' transformers from Maplins for a few quid and superglues them to the plugs. I had him check out the chargers and he says they will be fine. However, in three or four weeks, if every light in London goes off, you know he got it wrong ...

Hi All, am posting this one again as it got pushed into 'archive messages' by the thousands of lines of crap about bootleg software someone posted!

I've recently purchased a VO9850 off ebay for playback in voice-to-picture sessions. It seems decent enough despite the hours meter being almost off the scale. My five-year old Beta SP has 390 hours on the drum, this U-matic has 8500 - yet it's glitching only a little more than my other Series-9 which only has 4 hours on the clock. At what point do the heads just give up? Can the clock be wrong - i.e. the heads be replaced but the clock not reset?

Also, on power-up the video input starts off black and gradually returns in bursts over the course of an hour or so (though the video input level is registering an incoming signal all the time) Once it's fully online again there is a minor issue when unplugging/replugging the video input whilst in playback - this causes the tape speed to 'wow' slightly and the servo light to flicker then stabilise. So, the playback side is fine, but the video input seems to come and go - any ideas?

Thanks, Tom.

Yes, I got the batteries; they seem fine, the little battery meter pops right up when I turn the VTR on, but I haven't got a tape (yet) to test the whole system out. Buying some from Stanley Productions in Soho on Friday. Also as I have no charger and (I assume) these batteries have been stored for a while they will have to discharged and recharged before they will do the business properly. I have two chargers on the way from the US and as soon as I get them I will fire the whole system up. News as it happens. Film at eleven.

Brian - sounds like a dry joint - could be difficult to trace on the board. The camera is not worth too much, so a repair at a dealer could be expensive. Might be an idea to buy a good seconhand from someone like MVS; http://www.mvsvideo.co.uk/equipmentindex.htm or keep an eye on ebay.

I have been running a 3 camera setup (old gear) for concert style presentations with live bands for youth work (It’s my hobby?). One camera, a JVC KY15, has started to develop flickering lines in viewfinder and to video out. I have little knowledge and wonder if anybody knows what’s wrong and if it is repairable. I am not a professsional and do this video stuff to relax!!!. I have become fasinated with video cameras and love the site. All the best to everyone.

I am still interested in buying/having someone make a 14 pin male to 10 pin female cable - the cash is burning a hole in my pocket. However, you'll have to beat the US quote of US$122 including delivery. In fact I want all sorts of cables ffor a Sony VO 8800 P Umatic VTR - anyone got these for sale, let me know.

Stephen - I didn't answer your email because you had already found a cable (per your posting). If you are going to run two F10 cameras, you won't need one. You need a vision and audio mixer with the output from the mixer connected to the line in BNC connector on the VTR. The cameras will genlock from the burst reference on the mixer. You need one of those little portable mixers which will run off a 12v supply, like an electrocraft or similar.

Anders, I've been told that Y/C on U-Matic uses another frequency carrier than Y/C as we know it from S-VHS recorders. However, I do have a time base corrector (the iden ivt-7p)that has "s-video" style and a "dub" style inputs. More intresting is that they are hardwired to the same pins on the circuit board. So chances are it works. I'm not sure if the TBC is electronically auto-switching or something. Anyway... just my $0.02

It turns out that VDC Productions in London can make the 14 to 10 pin cable. It remains to be seen if it will be cheaper than buying one from the US ($125.00, more or less). Now, the £64.00 question - how do I run two Panasonic F10s from one Sony 8800P Umatic VTR?

Since you nice folks have been so helpful to Gonzo, try this one. I have inherited a Panasonic F10 video camera with a male 10 PIN output plug to the VTR and a Sony 8800 P portable Umatic VTR with a 14 pin female input from the camera. No cable! Is there a cable I can buy or have made, or an adaptor or camera accessory which will enable me to have the camera work with this VTR? Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

gonzo, you might try re-wiring a Sony SL-F1 charger. Those are Betamax power supplies, but if you cut off the plug and replace it with a standard 4-pin XLR type, you get a free NP-1 charger with it :-)

I've got one this way. Be creative.

Hiya Dave - What a small world, that's the one I was thinking of bidding on! It seems that the Series 9 machines have RS232... shame because that 5040 sold rather cheap! I'll keep my eyes peeled for a higher spec one. I'm after one because we do quite a bit of work for London ad-agencies, who all still like to bring U-matic tapes for reference at recording sessions and absolutely swear by it.

Jimmy - if the audio is mono use the left hand track to drop timecode in and just use the right channel for audio. There is a dub facility for the left hand audio (provided for voice-overs)so that you can insert the TC on the left track without disturbing the video / right hand audio tracks.

Hi Roger - The VP5000 is probably about £150 and the VO5850 about £250 - but those prices are really what a pro video dealer would ask (not what most people would be willing to pay) take a look on ebay and both would likely be available for under £100.

Raja, don't waste your time promoting Feng-Shui on this site. The average home where U-matic is a hobby or even a means of earning an income is at best covered in cables and unsightly racks full of equipment and at worst looks like my place, with big VTR's hanging out of every space available and even the stairs need to be negotiated with caution. Try the girls at "Ideal Homes".

Albert, nobody makes U-matic machines any more. There were some attempts by JVC and Panasonic to manufacture them, but the only ones that worked properly were the Sony machines, and they invented the format. As these machines can be obtained nowadays at little or no cost, there is no point in considering anything else.

Is there anyone here in the UK who could transfer about 4 low band tapes to VHS for a small sum?, you are of course welcome to the tapes after the copying!

If anyone would like to get in touch, please e-mail me but take the 123 bit out.

I also have a selection of small/big hi/lo band tapes of various lengths, all nice condition and used only once or twice £1 each. Email for list.

Thanks in advance folks

Louis:-)

Hi folks. I'm looking for a service manual for the Sony DXC-M3AP and the DXC-3000AP. Does anyone have a scan at hand, a place to go on the internet or maybe willing to sell? Photocopies would be fine too. Thanks.

Thanks for all the info on high band....I thought I was losing my mind here in NTSC land, since I'd never heard of anything but "regular" and SP..and I've been in video for 40 years!I'm now looking for a BVU-950 for sure.Guy

From my recollection there is no hiband NTSC U-matic. The BVU 200 machines were virtually the same as the VO 2850 models in the USA and Japan, whereas the PAL machines were hi and lo band respectively. I can remember that when there were standards conversions to be performed from NTSC U-matic to PAL you could always play the NTSC tapes from a 5030 multistandard low band player.

Hi Guy,

Is the Sony VO 9800 or 9850 sold in NTSC? If so, these models playback Lo-band, High-band and SP.

I'm looking to buy a U-Matic machine for archival transfers. I have a JVC CR-850 so far, and now I'm looking for something that will play "hi band" and "SP" recordings.Will a BVU-950 play more than the SP standard? It would be great to find a machine that would play all 3...is there such a thing? By the way, I'm in NTSC land.Thanks for any info.

Ive just become the proud owner of my first (working) u-matic. Its the portable JVC CR-4700E. The picture quality seems very good, almost as good if not better than S-VHS dare i say, but I know this is all subjective. One thing for sure, theres seems to be no colour shift at all, but I believe this is a feature of the u-matic format. Anyway my question is, does any body have further information on this model, battery size etc, and perhaps a manual?Remove the extra @ sign in the email address

Oh and by the way who are these cretins who keep posting stupid comments nothing to do with u-matic in here.I thought Yahoo was for that

I have a VO-5850 that is doing something very wierd. It will record audio & video and will only play back in rewind or ffwd. Does not read counter.... Counter will count if a tape is used that was recorded on other machine. Seems that there is no time code when it records to tape. How can I fix this? We are on a very limited budget and cannot afford to have it fixed by a tech. Im willing to try as we are now using anothe unit without asemble edit, looks bad!

Hi all. I recently got a Sony VO-2630 Umatic from a mate in Sydney, it works, plays, records and produces a really nice picture. The only downer is that on the video outputs (both BNC and TV) I'm getting intermittent horizontal hairthin noise streaks in the picture. I don'tknow what's causing that problem, might be some sort of interference or something. I know it's not the videotapes as I've ran a live feed from my pay TV decoder box to the machine and outputted to VHS and still getting noise.

I only hope it's not a circuitry fault which requires painstake fault finding and ripping half the guts out of the machine to get to the fault cos I don't want to cause more faults on the way.

So if anyone knows what this fault may be your technical advice would be most appreciated. My contact address is ac_dc_rocks@hotmail.com if anyone can help me.

CheersTroy

Hi,

I am having a problem with a new PCI Parallel Port we've installed. We're a Football Club and are selling tickets along with memberships. We have a ticket printer and a membership card printer, both of which MUST be connected by Parallel Ports directly with the Computer. We have installed a new port, Q-Tec, 110P 1 Port Parallel PCI Card, for LPT2.

The problem we are having is which ever printer is plugged into the LPT2 port is not working. The Computer is registering the new Port and on the computer all properties are correct and the port seems fine and to be working. But it simply will not print.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks. This is really getting desperate and urgent.

I've got this Canon TV lens on my Sony DXC-M3A. The lensis good but the camera has seen better days. I did get a nice quotelately for a functional DXC-M7, but it has no lens.

Before I pay too much, could anyone maybe tell me if I can use the M3lens on a M7? Someone told me tubes and CCDs use different lenses, butI have no idea if that is true. Don't know if the mount is the sametoo.

Thanks a lot for an answer. Even if it's short and rude ;)
