Greetings. I have a Sony VO-9850P U-Matic SP vtr that has a problem with recording. During recording, with new SP tapes, the vtr makes a 'glitching' noise. During playback of the recording the image quality is very bad with lines all over the screen. I looked at the tape and had creases on it. Playback with other tapes seems ok. Can anyone help? I appreciate any advice you can offer. Many thanks, Shane.
Hi everyone. Manuals for most Sony U-Matic machines can be found at http://www.Manuals-In-PDF.com There is a cost involved, usually about US$15.00 and they are in Acrobat Reader .PDF format. Hope this helps.

I apologise in advance if this topic has been done to death!!
I have a number of Umatic Low/High & HighSP masters I want to remaster onto DVD.
I have a Sony VO-9800P which can play all formats of Umatic.
I really want to take a DUB out & convert it to Firewire, is this possible??
I can take a composite feed into a DV deck & dub onto DV tape while digitizing BUT I would like to keep the quality of the video signal as high as possible.
I understand the issues regarding the C part of the Y/C signal from the Dub out.
What I'm looking for is a 'box of tricks' which can convert the Umatic Dub (in all its forms!!) to Firewire or at least SVHS Y/C.
So . . . . Anybody know of a solution?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Greetings from New Zealand. I am fairly new to videography and am a little uncertain as to the analogue format I should use for recording. I am considering using either S-VHS or U-Matic SP. From the specs i've seen, S-VHS has more horizontal lines while U-Matic SP has higher S/N ratio. If anyone could help point me in the right direction I would be extremely grateful. Many thanks, moosh101.

I have recently been clearing out some unused equipment at work and have a BVU-950P SP Umatic VCR. Its history is that we used to sell and support Aries and this was part of our test and demonstrator kit. I don't have any tapes so haven't fully tested it but it was in working order a few years ago and has been carfully stored since. I don't have any use for it and its too big to keep, so I am willing to let it go to the best offer received in the next couple of weeks. Also I have a Acron PAL Genlock Encoder 606P and a Lyonlamb Minivas Video Animation System. Both condition unknown. Location - West Mids. Anyone intrested?
I have a NV-GS25 Panasonic DV camera. I am not able to download my video tapes into my pc which runs windows xp media centre edition. when i click on the DV Input device button, a message appears "No DV device is connected to the personal computer" although my video camera is connected to my pc by means of a usb cable. The pc is however reading the still photographs saved onthe memory stick through the usb cable. I am unable to install the USB driver available on the PAnasonic CD. Windows gives a message saying "USB devices use standard drivers, you need not install the driver". Can anyone help me solve this problem?

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.

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?
email me at [email protected] please

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.

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?
