Basically all these spammers are doing is admitting that their product is so dodgy that they had to resort to the cheapest most fraudulant form of advertising.

Hi, I need a complete Drum for Sony BVU800P and BVU820P. Can anyone help or suggest some contacts. Thanks.
In addition to the Swit batteries I am advertising above, I will also include a PAG AR124 NP sequential fast charger. This is in mint condition and works perfectly. I am advised by CityLink, shipping this package within the UK mainland will cost £15.50, or I can deliver it FOC to your nearest mainline railway station. More info on 07722 165277.
Well, Roderick, he lives in the UK and he just got his latest gas bill!
Are you serious? A 23 year old, clapped out BVW10 for 2600 pounds?Just to give you an idea, last week I bought 2 x BVW10P and 2 x BVW40P, all in working condition, ex. Channel 7, 3 of them with SP mod, for A$100 (about 40 pounds), for the lot!
Sony BVW10P Betacam edit player – modified to play Betacam SP. Manufactured in ‘83 and well cared for by Thames Television. It was last re-headed in ‘92 and now has tearing on peak whites / faint herringbone pattern appearing, the tape-transport is in need of a realignment, a couple of bulbs and a fan need replacing but otherwise it is still a very high quality machine with many more years of good service left in it! ---- £2600 -----
JVC AA-G10E quad battery charger / 12v power supply – comes with 2x NBG1U batteries which have been barely used ---- £845 -------
Tripod plate for JVC GY-X3E (and probably similar) S-VHS camcorders ---- £350 ------
Buyers must be able to collect first two items from Norwich.
Ikegami HL79D 3-tube colour camera (in working/repairable condition) with lens + VF & possibly a power supply. No silly prices please (max £20) – it is over twenty years old! Plus, I’m also interested in many other ex-broadcast/professional shoulder-held colour tube cameras from the past 25 years in any condition.
4 x Swit SC2112D Ni-MH 13.2 volt 50Wh batteries.These are a replacements for the dreaded NI-Cad NP1 batteries, which means, amongst other things, no more memory effect.
2 x Swit SC302 2 port sequential chargers.Having 2 2 port chargers is better then 1 4 port charger, for obvious reasons.
1 x IDX adaptor for these batteries. It can hold1 or 2 batteries, and is fitted with a V-lockconnector.
These items are all brand new, and have never been used, except to bench test them when new.
I am asking £500.00 for these items, and are offered as a package, and cannot be sold separately.
I have some U-matic items for sale or trade: SONY BVU-870P + BVT810P time base corrector. The 870 powers up and loads tape, but won't respond to the control panel..
SONY BVU-150P, loads tape, but indicates 'tape slack'. BC-210CE battery charger for BP-90 batteries. (no batteries)
Items located in Denmark. Pictures by request.
Alternative mail adress, in case the other one gets flooded with spam:
Can someone tell me if the sony VO-5850P is high band or low band..! Thanks!
1. Architectectural diagram of the CPU and explain its function.2. arithmetic instructions formats?3. bus architecture.4. H/W support to support to memory management.5. Pipeline support in the architecture.
MarcusI don't want to be too negative, but there is a problem with your set-up. The 5630 are not edit machines and whilst you could hook them up to the RM-440, it won't let you edit properly. You really want to look for a 5950/5800 combo (you need at least 1 5850 for an edit suite).Try to find a complete kit on eBay, they do pop up from time to time and see if you can sell the 5630 at the same place.Alternatively, you could look for some 9850 / 9800 machines and a RM-450 controller. These connect with standard 9-pin 'serial' cables.
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 i've recently got hold of a SONY VO-5850P, as part of a set up for doing 2D animation. Im looking to get hold of a Manual to go with it, either original/photocopied ..etc. If anyone can help in any way, please contact me!
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.
Hello out thereCan anyone tell me when production ceased on the Sony DXC 327 Hi-8 camcorder please.

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?

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.
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?

bonsoir te souhaite une bonne nuit!!!! Joc-----
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!
i have couple of hundred umatic tapes , mixed-lo/hi/sp and various lengths, many 75 mins.if anyone can use these or knows of a school in africa that could use them, you can have them for FREE as long as you can collect. if you need delivery then ask for a qwuote.
I have 2 5850's, 1 rm440 with cables. All in good working condition.
If any one is interested please contact me.
To: Several posters and including the last four.I think that it has been said before - this is a forum discussing the obsolete U-matic video format, not the fountain of all knowledge.

I have a video tape Scotch UCA 16 with some video on it but no way to play it. Can anyone recognize this format. I believe it is 1inch wide.Peter
Manuals are hard to find due to Sony copyright. What connections are you after, I may be able to help.
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?

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.

To Daniel,a tech told me that the problem with Sony Vo 5630 was the bearing under the head,if that goes the drum drops a bit and stuffs everything up,good luck
Can anyone tell me where I can find information (Free) on how to calibrate an Ikegami HC300?
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. Looking for any info I can find about a jvc gz-s5. It is a high-band saticon camera. Please give me any info on it.Thanks, Jon
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?
Hi all,I inherited a 197* JVC CR-6060U from my office and I can't keep it anymore. Any ideas on how much I can ask for it? I believe it's in working condition, but it has no wires. I also found an eBay seller with the right remote for it.
Phil you need a digital to analogue converter. This device works both ways:http://www.videomaker.com/scripts/article.cfm?id=8642
i recorded a bit of music with the vo-5630.
but now there is the problem why i thought i need lowband tapes.
the music is on the tape but you can hear it only a little bit and very crispy.
maybe the head of the machine isnt working all right?
what do you think?
Anyone know the first thing about connected one of these machines to DV camera?
Many thanks rob
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.
can anyone tell me how Lowband tapes are labelled??
i bought some tapes on ebay but those were hiband...
and my vo-5630 can´t play them correctly.thanks a lot
Have some U-Matic Recorders and player in very good/excellent condition: VP 7030, VP 5040, some VO 5630, VO 5859, BVU 800 (850?), BVU 150 with charging station and NC-Batteries, Editing controls and Remote Controls. Ask for prices, Must be taken in germany near Mainz/Frankfurt, shipment only at own risk.
Does anuone know if you can modify a VO-9800/VO-9850 to accept REF?And the tricky question: how?
I am trying to use a BVE-600 for A/B rolls but it looses sync when I use machines without REF In.
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.
ok, this was the not working vo5630 :)
jipee, its working...after rolling thr mechanics back everything seems to make its job
i bought some old kca 60 and bca 60, to test the play and record funktions...but thre only sound i hear is a fast beeping sound, we uessed it was a timecode signal...but also our signal we recorded, a mic and a line signal, was just like this beeping...???

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!
