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.

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 ;)
