Hi Leon, Let me try to explain.

RF off tape is used for DOC (Drop Out Compensation) in a TBC (Time Base Corrector). A RF out is an output you can connect to the aerial input on your television. It would also show a channel number because you will have to tune your television to a specific channel. You would rarely find that connector on a professional machine for obvious reasons.Finally the 'TV' connector, usually a greenish 8-pin connector, was a left over from early video recorder connections. The connector provides both inputs and outputs and allowed a videorecorder to be connected to a specially adapted TV so that you could record 'off air' television. Early model videorecorders didn't have build-in tuners. The connectors stuck around for a while because they were a convenient way to connect a VCR to a monitor, connecting both video and audio signals with one cable.

Cheers

hey guys! i have a question concerning some u-matic devices. why do some (like the sony vo-9600 and the sony vp-9000 ) have both an rf (off tape) and an rf out connector? what is the difference between those connectors? i have read that the rf (off tape) connector is used for connecting an external tbc and the rf out connector is used for connecting a monitor or tv. but why is there an extra connector labelled tv then? i would be very happy if anyone could help me and explain what these connectors are used for (and what kind of signals are transported through them)

Confusingly, if the 'Standby' light is on it is not ready. What is indicates is that the threading cycle hasn't completed.Try if you can, carefully, to turn the threading ring a little further clockwise. With a bit of luck that should engage the switch and put the machine back in action.

Hi All, I 'm trying to back up some old videos and have been loaned a Sony VO9600. It was working fine until today, with a tape loaded inside which was running fine whilst running a test recording/copy onto a DV deck, after stopping the machine and then wanting to start again all the front panel transport control buttons won't work, the tape won't eject, although the standby light is lit. Can anyone give any advice on what to do and where to go from here. Is it possible to manually eject the tape? I have opened it up and had a look inside, but can't see anything obvious... many thanks for any information.

Hi Jodi,I agree it's not a good idea to use the 2610 for tape transfer. But if you need a user manual or service manual you can download a PDF version for free:http://tomislavmikulic.com/sony-u-matic- vo-2630. html

The 2630 model documentation includes everything you need for 2610 plus some extras related to European TV systems PAL and SECAM. Cheers, Tom

Thanks Roderick! I realized right after I posted that I should have asked about machine quality right away!

Hi Jodi, I have a service manual for a VO-2630 but only in paper.

But really, if you are planning to transfer some of your tapes you probably should be looking at a better machine. The VO-2610 is almost 40 years old and very basic. For startes it is only 'low-band' and some of your tapes may be 'hi-band' or 'SP', which won't play well on your 2610. BTW, all the tapes look the same, it is just a different way of recording the footage onto the tape.You would be much better off trying to find a decent VO-98** which will play all formats. They regularly show up on Ebay for a $ 200 - $300. Anything more is a rip-off!Best of luck

Hello all- I hope you will forgive some very basic questions from a newbie. I work in a University archives and we have a number of 3/4 inch tapes. While the eventual plan is to transfer material of interest- first we need to figure WHAT is of interest. I just unearthed a Sony VO-2610 and decided to see if it would power up. It does!

I have two main questions:

1. Does any one have access to a PDF of the manual?2. I got the eject button to work once and only once. Now it lights up but nothing happens. Does anyone have any troubleshooting tips?

Thank you so much!
