Hi Craig. Yeah I wont be using any more SP tapes until I fix the problem. The tapes get creased by the pinch roller, that is 'metal' by the way. I have found a replacement one on e-bay but its made of 'black rubber'. I'll keep you posted as to how repairs go. Thanks, moosh101

Hi Craig. I have been able to get a hold of 9 new Sony KPS-20min tapes for NZ$20.00 each, but unfortunatly my Sony VO-9850P is creasing them. :-( I opened up the unit and observed during recording that its happening at the S-drawer guide near the pinch roller, but i'm not a technician and feel a little nervous tampering with the machines internals - just in case I make things worse. It looks like I'll have to save my pennies and get a qualified tech to have a look. Thanks.

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.

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?

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?

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.

For sale.

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.

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.

Good luck

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.

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

Tuesday 17th January 2006
11:28 am U.K.



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!

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. King Kong games and Plasma screens were not invented when we were using these resources! You would do better to ask at http://wwww.google.com

I don't know what annoys me more - The fact that these Nigerian scammers think that the people on this site would be stupid enough to even contemplate buying a phone from them or the fact that that post hasn't been removed after a week!Really, can we clean these pages up a bit? How hard is it to remove unwanted ads, posts from delusional kids looking for sex or illegal software?

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 own a Sony VO-5850 and live here in Nova Scotia, Canada. My problem is that I hear the EE audio fine on this machine, but when I record/edit/insert, etc audio is not recorded onto tape or is distorted and low. I am suspecting the record switch relays for the audio channels. Can anyone tell me where the relays fore the audio is and can they becleaned. Any help would be great. I don't have the service manual for this deck.
