Hello, the capstan is just above where you have marked 2 on your picture.If your machine suddenly stopped while in play, then it is possible there is a problem with one of the reel tach sensors (could be dust or dirt in them). They sit under the reel tables. You would have to removed the elevator to get to the reel tables.Also, make sure your pinch roller isnt shinny and your belts/idler are in good shape. Some mechanical parts are still available from Sony.

Let me try to explain a few basics on tape transport. The tape is not pulled by the reels but by the capstan and a rubber pinch roller. Your problem could be one of two things: either the capstan motor isn't working or the pinch roller doesn't push on the capstan hard enough to pull the tape through.First check: See if the capstan is turning - the capstan is a small (about 2mm diameter) steel rod that should be turning fast, it is normally below the head drum, have a look at this pictire http://umatic.palsite.com/format.html If that is spinning. try manually push the pinch roller onto the tape and the capstan.Second check: If that works, you have to check the condition of the pinch-roller and the solenoid that applies the pressure.

Good luck

thanks for your answer.

i removed it by opening the case.

reseting all the threading system seems very complicated. which gears i have to reset you dont know exactly?

if i put a cassette manually back into the 5630 it seems the machine dont have enough power to turn the tape...it only runs again if i remmove it again.

How did you remove the tape? It appears that the machine still thinks the tape is in there.I don't have a 5630 to check how, but you will manually have to reset all the threading system to make it realise that the tape is gone. This will most likely involve a lot of turning gears.

Braodcast BasementLet me know if you want any more machines at those prices, I'll happily send them from Australia where they sell for about 50pounds or less.

how can i stop it...?

it doesnt eject the tape too....nothing works.

maybe there is a trick to reset the machine?

thanks a lot.

David - if you are in the UK you need a VP5030 or VP7030 etc. ALL VO5 prefixed machines are lowband machines but some are PAL only. The two players I mentioned are multi-standard as well. Also the old VO2030 top loaders will do the job, they should be cheap enough if you can find one.

Having not used Umatic formats for ages I've forgotten their ID's.I'm now in need of a LOW Band umatic REPLAY VTR (to play and "get" the image / sound tracks off and migrated to another format) and request that someone let me know the SONY MODEL NUMBERS (or other masnufacturer's brands i guess) so I can start looking to buy the right machine, probably on eBay. Thanks so much for any help advice you may offer.

Jineen,It is good practice to wind and rewind the tapes maybe once a year. This is to prevent that one tape layer leaves a magnetic residue on to the next tape layer . 200 tapes, quite a task!I am not certain about the interval. Maybe once every two years is sufficient.Someone else knows?

Hi all,

I am currently doing a placement at GMPT-SE (Saab) in Sweden and one of my tasks is to produce a visualisation of a gearbox in HYPERWORKS MotionView v7.0. I have never worked nor heard about this program but neither has anyone here at GMPT-SE. The HELP seems to expect you already know the program or worked with the older versions so is not exactly helpfull if you need to know the very basics. The tutorials are the same, I have been going through most of them by now and it just doesn't seem to make much more sence than it did before. Everything I find out I am writing down in a manual for the next 'sucker' that has to work with it.

The idea is to bring in files from either ADAMS or UNIGRAPHICS, these should then get a data input from MATLAB which should make the whole thing run in such a way a film can be taken from it for a board presentation but with the posibility of changing the data at anytime. So it can be used for future tests.

Now my question (or enormous cry for help more like) is the following, is there anyone who can provide me with a MANUAL for HYPERWORKS MotionView v7.0 on UNIX or anything else that is helpfull? Maybe manuals of older versions, links to forums, ... . Just anything that can get me started cause right now I feel pretty useless.
