Help! I looking for advice on some equipment I'm looking at.I was thinking of getting them for my husband a novice to use for filming wildlife on our camping trips. I don't know what to get him but saw some equipment at a flea market. A hitachi Computacam FP-Z31, Sony video cassete recorder VO-5800 & VO-5850 , Sony video monitor PVM-1271Q and a Panasonic Digital FX generator WJ AVE3. What is a fair market price to pay for these items?

Hi. Good site. I have a Sony DXC-3000P camera, coupled with a VO-6800PS portable U-matic recorder. I then have a pair of 5630 recorders and I acquired an RM-440 edit controller, but I don't have any of the RCC-5E leads for it. Does anyone know where I might get hold of some? I haven't found any on Ebay, or in the dealers I've looked at (and, judging by dealers' prices of other cables - even second hand - I wouldn't be wanting to buy from them anyway). I'm also missing the eye-piece lens and rubber bit from my camera, if anyone has one tucked away. So, what does everyone use their equipment for? I'm totally amateur, just muck about really. There's some lovely countryside round me that I've filmed. I just love the quality and it's fun playing about with the gear. I'm the same with my audio gear (I have four reel-to-reels now!). I did think about doing video as a sideline business, but I decided I didn't want the hassle. At the moment, I'm actually using the gear for some cine-video transfer for my Uncle. Anyway, good luck everyone and if you can help me out, let me know. Thanks. Marcus.

A friend's father has a series of U-Matic KC-60 tapes (maybe 30-40) with old archived news footage on them. He is going to be moving to a smaller home soon and was looking to sell these if possible to save space. Are there any ideas as to thier value (if any) and to whom they might be sold?

Thanks,Quentin

Help! I just played a twenty minute casette in a VO-7600. After stopping it, I tried to rewind. The controls are all dead, and the standby light is illuminated. Repeated cycling power on/off fail to revive the beast. I remember this happened once before to me, but so long ago, I can't remember what to do.Is there an easy solution, or is it strictly a technician's job? Ion

The problem you'll have with these tapes is that you have the find out what they are. There are three different ways U-matic can recors a tape: low-band, high-band and SP. Then, to make things more complex, there are 3 basic standards: PAL, NTSC & SECAM. The USA uses the NTSC system but Europe (except France which is SECAM) uses PAL.To solve the first problem, there are machines such as the VO-9800 or VO-9850 that will play all systems but only 1 standard (PAL, NTSC or SECAM) and there are machines such as the VO-7series that will play different standards but only low-band.......My advice: find yourself a nice VO-98** machine on eBay, shouldn't cost much more than $ 200 and see how you go. Being in the USA you'll should get a NTSC machine 'cause I assume most tapes would be recorded on that standard. If you get a lot of tapes without a picture and really fast sound, those are probably PAL tapes, you may want to look out for a cheap PAL machine.As to the value of the tapes, that will really depend on what's on them. U-matic tapes sell for dime-a-dozen but if it has some interesting footage you may get some collectors.

Good luckRoderick

Hi - I have several UMatic machines inc BVU 800P. I want to capture directly to my edit system but not using Composite out. I really want the best quality video out and wondered if the Dubbing cable VDC-5 would permit a better (SVHS??) signal for me?

So does anyone have advice and secondly has anyone got a dubbing cable that I can adapt to give the S signal out and S into my system?

thanks Chris

I live in california. This looks like a great site. I just received hundreds u-matic tapes of all different lengths. They all have vintage programming on them. It is quite a collection. I'd love to view them. What would be a good cheaper u-matic model that would work for me. Nothing fancy. The tapes have many documentaries that were on BBC or PBS from the 80's I think. Is there a market for these tapes. Would folks on Ebay buy them?

Thanks to all!

Slightly off-topic but the Betacam page seem to have turned into an advertising page with little response to questions......I have a problem with my old BVW-40P, it won't power up. When I turn it on, the display lights up and the heads spin for a millisecond before it shuts down. I have to wait about ten minutes before I can make it do that again, otherwise it is just dead. Any ideas? I suspect the powersupply, but how do you get to the bugger without pulling the whole machine apart?

Hi,

I'm based in NYC and have some equipment that I would love to get rid of. It takes up space in the studio. I have the FP-Z31, a Sony VO-6800, and a Monitor(which I may keep) TN-22U. Best offer to get it off my hands would be great. I have some wonderful footage from the camera but it's been atleast 10 years since I've turned it on. I'll check it out and give a full update to an interested party.

I have for sale a Sony DXC M7 camera. This camera has been little used and is in perfect working order. It comes with a 15X lens, service manual, instruction manual and a Sennheiser microphone. It puts out beautiful pictures, far superior to that digital cxxp.

I also have a Sony BVW35 BetacamSP field recorder for sale. This too has been very little used as it has always been my spare/backup machine. It is in very good condition, works perfectly, comes with a 26 way umbilical cable, service manual, flight bag, and does not suffer from any dents, digs, scrapes or scratches.

I am selling these items as a job lot and cannot separate them.I will also include a PAG ARP 124 NP1 Autoranging fast Charger,25 Sony SP Used once and 10 New Fuji M321SP 30 minute Tapes.

This is your chance to upgrade to the Betacam format at a very reasonable price.

I am asking £500.00. for this kit, which includes UK delivery.Please email for further details.

Hi Daniel

There are three posibilities here:1- Heads are dirty - the audio heads are in the block at the top right-hand side of the video head drum. Carefully clean with alcohol and Q-tips. Also clean all the steel rods that guide the tape. Build-up of gunk on those effects the contact between the tape and heads.2- Tape path is incorrect. This is a lot more tricky. Try, gently, pushing the running tape up or down with a Q-tip. See if that changes the audio playback. If that is the problem, get some professional help to re-align the tape path.3- The playback PCB has issues. Can't help you there. You may want to look for another machine, repairs would most likely cost a multiple of the value of the machine.

hi Roderick:

the vu meters show in recordmode the signal all right and i can hear both, the clear sound in my headphones and in the output of the vcr.

so i guess the inputs are all right.

the strange sound is only on the recorded tape.

its very quietly and sounds like the box is damaged...

only dumb sound and noise....

but in record monitor mode its all right...

but it is not possible that all ten tapes i got are damaged....

Just a few suggestions:

What is the sound like when you playback the pre-recrded Hi-band tapes? There is no difference in audio between hi-band and low-band. If that is just as bad, clean the audio heads but normally when the heads are dirty the sound would be dull, not crispy.What do the VU meters show you? Any signal there? What is hooked onto the audio output of the VCR? Have you tried headphones?

There is no difference in tapes for low-band or hi-band. The difference is in how the information is 'written' on the tape. You'll find that you can use these tapes to record and then playback on your 5630. If you wanted to watch the tapes you bought, you'll need another machine.

If you have a BVU 150 or a VO 8800 portable recorder don't try to modify it for larger tapes you will end up with nothing but trouble. There are some truly remarkable machines available now on EBAY, I just bought two BVU 800 's for less than $100 each. These are fantastic machines and will play any UMatic tape. I have seen PAL versions of these machines for about the same price. One problem, these things are HUGE and the shipping can cost several times what you pay for the machine.

The machines i offer for sale are serviced and with warranty, hence the prices. Machines that turn up on ebay and the like are normally sold as is.Decks like VO-9600p that play/rec all formats (LB/HB/SP) are still in demand for transfer of archive material. Panasonic (in my opinion), make the best vhs's and models like AG-7700 and AG-8700 are top of the range in this respect but have long since out of production but there is demand for good second user machines, again for archive and transfer.DVD hasnt completely taken over yet.

>>>>>we have 2 sealed in orignal box, V-32 Helical scan Sony video tapes. Can anyone give us info on this?? Thanks Kathy<<<<<

These tapes are 1/2" open reel tapes used on the old EIAJ and CV series VTRs. They're probably no more than curios now as the tape degenerates over the years. If an attempt is made to play these tapes it will probably stick to the drum, with disaterous results for the heads of the VTR. People do all sorts to recover the signals off tape in this condition. Including 'baking' the tape in an oven. If you know how to do this you don't need me to tell you how! If you don't; well find someone who does! It's a specialist job.

Broadcast basement. What colour is the sky on your planet? The machines you list are worth about 1/5 of what you're charging! As for the others looking for serial numbers, advice on flash, 3d animation and even someone with the surname 'Matic'; YOU'RE ALL IN THE WRONG £!&%ing place!

Nice to see the site still going!

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.

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.

Thanks
