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.

Does anyone have a Umatic Hi-band or UmaticSP tape they could lend me? I will pay postage in the UK and return the tape if required. I've just bought a known working VO-9800P, and would like to put it through its paces and learn how to run it.

Thanks for any help. (May 2006)

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?
