The "RF" connection is "RF Off-Tape" used for connection to a TBC. It's not, nor is it ever (even with a fitted RF modulator) an RF TV signal output.

RF outputs will only work if the RF modulator unit is present. Should be inside oblong panel at rear of machine? Otherwise you have to use the composite output to a scart connection on your TV monitor and select line in (AV) on the TV.

Help! Have just fulfilled a 15yr ambition and bought a U-matic system (a V05800/RM440 controller and two VP5030 players) and I have a very silly question. It all seems to be working fine but when I tried to connect a monitor to the VP5030 via the RF socket I'm getting nothing (I've tried on all three machines). I know there were some models that didn't connect to regular TVs but surely they wouldn't have RF sockets on the back. Does anyone know if I'm missing something on the settings? The 5030 doesn't seem to have many output controls at all but it's been about ten years since I last worked with these kinds of machines and I think I might be missing something dumb/obvious. Hope someone can help - I have films that desperatly need finishing before I become to old/fat/bald to do so!

Jim. No U-matic portable will record without a signal.

M3 shifting Focus..... Hi I just got myself a Sony M3 with a Tamron lens and I have the following problem. When I zoom in on an object and focus, then I zoom out and the object goes out of focus. According to the seller a good cameraman should know, because it has something to do with a procedure. Anyone a clue ?

Two suggestions: 1- Check the switch on the side and make sure it is set to 'Line', when in 'Camera' it will wait for the camera remote switch. 2- Make sure the cassette has the little red tab at the bottom. This is the safety tab and without it the machine won't record.

Good luck

HELP!!!! I am about to start onlining a doc. Film and the film has been archived on 3/4 SP PAL. I need to either buy a deck for really cheap (I have engineers that can work on it, maintain) OR, find one someone would be willing to rent/loan for a reasonable price... I am in San Francisco, CA. I have over 60 hours/60 tapes of this footage to go through and most of the $$ will end up paying for my system to be able to work with this deck and footage. I would be willing to discuss "in-kind" donation or may be able to get it set up as a 501 Tax deduct. donation. I will even discuss work for trade.

thanks! Colleen

Been using the deck this morning for over two hours without a problem. It's definitely a heat issue, although it didn't FEEL really hot last night. The vcr is missing its little rubber feet, it was rack mounted before apparently. I have it sitting flat on a cardboard box, but the box is smaller than the base of the machine. I have been very careful not to cover any vent holes. Perhaps the box is acting as a heat sink though, and heating up the machine slowly. This is what I think the problem is, and it may be fixed when I find a set of feet to put on it.

Hi everyone. I just picked up a VO-5600 on Ebay and it seemed to work great, at first. After sitting wit the power on all day however, it is acting up. I suspect a problem caused by heat, and am letting it cool off now. The behavior is that during (or while initiating) playback the machine won't come out of pause. Or if I can finally get it to play it will play for a couple minutes, then jump into pause and stick there (play or pause do not cause the tape to roll at this point). Sometimes when I just turn it on, no tape, the pause light is lit. Anybody have any clue what this behavior could mean?
