Just done some reading on the SX 50 format: Sony sais that this new 50 megabit standard has been made for DVD autohoring and Editing with Avid/Media100/Pinacle. The camcorders will range from a cheap but good working 4:3 IT 3 ccd 480K PowerHAD (as in UVW-100, EVW-300) machine to a 4:3/16:9 FIT 3 CCD machines (SDTV equiv of the HDTV HDCAM camcorders). Also their going to implent the SX50 in to the hybrid edit recorders (the ones with a harddisc onboard). I think after seeing a demo this system is superior to DVCAM or DVCPRO or even DVCPRO 50. The cam's are super light compared to other betacam machines , they just weigh in about the half of a BVW 400 machine.If anyone else has anything about the SX50 format, please e-mail me!

My 5800 was working great, I just finshed recording about 30 minutes on it, hit pause and left the room. I came back a few minutes later and hit eject button, nothing, not even a lighted button, I had to remove the tape (it was stuck in the 5800) and noticed the arm that takes the tape around the head was in the 7 or 8 o'clock postion. After winding back the motor to the start I was able to rempve tape, but still nothing lights up or works other that when you start it I can hear the motor for just a sec. The lights in the tape bay and the meters work, but thats it... Any idea what I can do??? is there two fuses for this machine??? if so where are they????

HELP... my other two decks are still in the shop and so far it has a bill of over $1200.00.......

I have a 5850 and two 5800 vo decks... they all three have started acting up in the last two months. one lost the control board, the other just stopped working and the 3rd would not track right... anyway the question is I started to use sp tapes and was wondering if that might have caused my problems? anybody ever use sp in a VO recorder before????

It could be that your Audiopcb has gone baserk or that the tape head misses a track during playback (try cleaning it with some aclohol moistend filtcarbon). Do you see the VU meters (audio 1 and 2)give a reading?. Or it could also mean that the Audio doesn't get recorded, i'm afraid (if the head is not good) you'll need a new head , and one for a 5800 series is going to cost (or you could get one from another machine). If it's the PCB, try some contact fluid (Clean it up good after you used , to prevent shortcircuits)Good luck!

I am having some problems with my 5850 and I was wondering if someone couldhelp.

The problem is that it will not record the audio correctly. When I amrecording the CH1 and CH2 meters are working and I get the audio out of theheadphone jack but there is no audio playback. The problem is the samewhether I use the Mic, Line or Dub inputs.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

Steven Keller

1) Make sure the tape has a red record button fitted. It's about 5mm in diameter with a bloody great 'R' on it. Removal prevents recording.

2) Press Record AND Play; many Umatics will go into preview (or E to E) mode if Record is pressed on it's own..

..Don't you have technicians?????? I know a good onw who would move down there for the right money!!!

Just some qeustions on the new Beta SX50 format, does anyone now if it requires a playback adaptor (i.e. the BVA400 pb apaptor for the UVW/BVW series Betacam SP Camcorder). And what kind of drop out compensation is used? (Thinking on Digi-beta theory). PS. Ikegami and Avid will release an even better version of their DNS - series diskbased camcorders,HDCAM qaulity on a big scsi disk on the back of a 4 ccd (1R, 2G, 1B as used in Ikegami's HK466 Studio cam) camcorder. I hope Sony's SX50 camcorders are as good as an Philips LDK150 of an Ikegami HL79W (DVCPRO50). I find Sony's DNW- series SX camcorders a bit dissapointing (when compared to the Philips LDK 150). Hope someone knows a lot 'bout SX50 i've got a lot of qeustions.
