Hi and hope you are all well , has anyone started an "A" or "C" format club or chat page for the broadcast one inch reel to reel video systems,dating fron 1966 onwards which was the mainstay of broadcast for 15-20 years? Anyone interested in one inch formats or need any tapes copied to DVD or Hardrives for archive? Is anyone interested or is it only me?Thanks for reading this and any replies? Peter

i have recently bougt a Sony VO-9600P recorder, for viewing some old tapes. I was able play only 1 tape...Each time I switch on the power button, the VCR starts rewinding a little bit. Then, when I am trying to load a tape, the "Standby" indicator immediately lights on and the VCR seems "asleep", as the VO-9600P doesn't load the tape. The misfunction seems to be a black trap located on the left of the tape tray. When I gently push it with a screwdriver, the Standby indicator lights on. Does somebody already encounters this kind of problem? I would be very grateful if somebody could help me to fix this issue. Big thanks & regards, Amon

I have just bought out a very well known warehouse in the uk called World Of Video 2000 I managed to get all their original U-MATIC tapes and all their masters for hundreds of rare movies.There was equipment and machinery galore for everything I havent managed to find the leads yet as ther are cases and cases to go through any idea where I can see what leads I need I have two Sony Umatic machines and more to go through.

DaveF, your best bet is a VO9800 or VO9850, these will play Hi-band, Low-band and SP.

Hi Lee,Nope, the tape doesn't care. It can be recorded in NTSC, PAL or SECAM for that matter.But once recorded in a specific format, you'll need a similar machine to play it back.

Hi John,

Sorry, can't find the details on the 5630 at the moment but they are quite common little globes. If you can check the voltage with a multimeter you can take out some of the guess work, but I would expect them to be either 6V or 12V.Just pop into your local Jaycar or Dick Smith and look for something like this:http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=SL2685&CATID=21&form=CAT&SUBCATID=402They are really cheap so just get a few different ones and see which work best for you. They are not a critical item.Good luck.

Hi - does anyone know the voltage/wattage of the meter bulbs in a Sony VO-5630? Also, somewhere to get them online?

The only way is to pop it in a machine, there are no markings on the actual tape, like VHS vs SVHS. If you play the tape in a low-band machine, say a VO5 or 7 series, and the picture is B/W - it'll be a high band tape. Similarly, put the tape in a BVU machine and it plays in B/W, the tape is low band. As far as I know only the VO9 series play both low and high band tapes but I don't recall it actually showing what it is.

Hello,

Does anyone know of a quick way of identifying if a tape is recorded as low band or hi band?

Thanks,

Chris

Anybody seen the cleaners lately?

Just curious.

Would be nice to have this chat page back on topic.

Can't be that hard to monitor this.

Or is it?

Pity
