Other thing is put a colour bars tape and connect a oscilloscope in Y, B-Y and R-Y ouputs for see what output is wrong

I have a Sony UVW-1800P and the B-Y and R-Y outputs works but Y output don't works

I checked with the oscilloscope and Y arrived to the input of last A-D D-A (CTDM)

I have bad the last A-D D-A (CTDM) converter of Y

This is a common problem?

This vcr was struck in a car travel of 650 Km in Spain (the friend of the seller drove badly), when I receive works very good but in 3 months after appeared this problem

I will see again, has all in IC'S SMD

Phil Winfield you need a oscilloscope for check if the signals Y, B-Y and R-Y arrived to the A/D D/A converter

The signals of the heads are in FM after is demodulated in this point a tape with colour bars should appear, if don't appear there is a problem in heads o FM demodulator

If appear the A/D D/A converter is bad

But E-E works, I go to search the schema and I will tell you

Phil if you put a signal in a input this appears in the outputs?

Checking the composite video, s-video and Y, B-Y, R-Y inputs and outputs.

I have now tried to put a composite signal into the machine and yes, I do see an ouput. Do you need me to confirm the same for all inputs and outputs?

Phil this is called E-E or electronic to electronic

For to be clear the inputs signals is changed to FM signals and changed again for to be a normal signal

This only appears in Betacam and U-matic vcrs but in VHS, Betamax and Video 2000 don't appears because is more expensive to put this circuit

I have not tried to see if an input into the machine produces an output - will try this and report back!

Hi, in answer to your questions about the Betacam VTR. Nothing on any video output. Heads have been properly cleaned (which was the first thing I tried). I tried another TBU board and the picture returned briefly until I once again was suffering firstly from picture blocking and then total failure.

Any further suggestions?

Thanks

Hi, I own quite a few old ex broadcast kit. My BVW-75P was playing a tape yesterday when the picture suddenly disappeared on the monitor. The TCR code still shows, sound is ok too, but no picture. The monitor does show that a PAL signal is present.

I have lifted and replaced all the cards I can see, but still nothing. Looking at the technical manual, perhaps the fault lies with one of the TBC cards, caps look ok on all the cards?

The picture was stable and no noticable issues before it disappeared.

Hi All,

Hope your well well !

I am looking to buy 2x Sony DVW-500P with good HO2 and H12 hours, ideally a later machine so 17xxxx onwards with regards to the Serial number.

It has to be the 500P and not the A500P !

Thanks in advance

Chris.

Is correct to use Betacam Digital, SX, IMX and HD Cam tapes in machines that only play and record in Betacam SP?

Ron NEVER clean again the heads with acetone, this will destroy the heads

But you can to clean with alcohol, the best alcohol is isopropyl for clean

If I am confused I wait that someone warn me

And the best quality of this vcr is by the Y, B-Y and R-Y outputs, is the same quality of RGB but this vcr hasn't this outputs

For convert to digital you need a Y, B-Y, R-Y or RGB + sync input recorder

But the digital players has less quality of the Betacam SP players

Betacam digital perhaps but Betacam SX or IMX is worse, (has compression)

Also DV and mini DV too are worse, (has compression)

Perhaps the M2 format has the same quality of Betacam SP, here appears:
