I Just wan't to do a quick check with you all here on the site!
I've got some old VR, VCR & VHS- recorders of different brands,
and 2 Grundig, one VCR 3500 and one V2000. One ITC Ikegami TVR-321, One ITT 240 Color VR-240 and one Universum 10300 BetaColor.
All of them is starting and have been looked over so now I was wondering if you gays can tell me more about them and what they could be worth, I would also appreciate tips about the best places to sell them.
I also got 3 BASF double play bands, DP26, 5 3/4in | 1800ft.
I hope you can help me out, Thank's in advance!

I cheaply bought my first digital betacam on the stock exchange. TTV3452P
tested with an analog cassette. I do not have digital.
image and sound are functional
error 52 you do not know what it is like for an error.
apology, my bad English

Venca, it looks like a rebadged Sony DVW-500 DigiBeta machine.
The strange thing is, there is actually no 'Error 52' but there is an 'Error 92'. Could it be that the display is faulty?
Best way to find out is to connect a monitor to Video Output Composite 3. That will show more information about the error.
Here is a link to a service manual: http://diagramasde.com/diagramas/otros2/dvw-a500p1.pdf

Hey guys, very new to this. I have a BVV-5 VTR and a couple tapes I want to watch for it. The only problem is, right now I can either buy a playback adapter, which would cost me and I dont have another power supply, or I could buy and actual unit, such as the BVW-75 or a UVW-1800 but those are also extremely expensive for my budget. Is there a way to get any signal out of the PB adapter or is that a no-go?

Because these things can get very complicated, best thing to do is download the service manual from the link I listed.
That will give you some idea what the problem is and you can then decide if you can fix it yourself or if you need professional help.
Let us know how you go.

I have the Sony UVW-1800P and when I connect in the composite video input a video VHS or Betamax and the video composite output (Super) to tv appears the message "Not is a standard signal" and the error code 93-000
The image appears with horizontal lines tremble only the colour
I connected the Reference video input, is the same of the composite video input
These videos vhs and Betamax works good if I connect to the tv direct
If I connect a tdt or dvd signal to the Betacam composite input it works good
All the videos and the tv are PAL
Is normal that happen this?

There is a problem with the reference sync. Can be many causes, you'll need to get a copy of the service manual.
Here's a link to the error codes for the machine: http://www.betaservice.ru/repair/errorcodes/er_uvw1xxx.htm

Ok Roderick in this page say that the error 93-000 is Servo reference sync signal cannot be detected
But is rare that this error only appears with signals from vhs and Betamax
and not with a dvd and dvb composite video outputs
You or somebody that has a Betacam video can connect a vhs or Betamax to Betacam for see if appears this error?

Hello, can I use these tapes in the Sony UVW-1800P?
DIGITAL BETACAM METAL PARTICLE
HDCAM CERAMIC ARMOR METAL PARTICLE
All has similar of the Betacam SP big but with differents holes for the detector, perhaps if I make the correct holes works good

The UVW-1800 is a very finicky machine that only likes Betacam SP.
There is a 99% change it will just spit out the tapes...

Roderick I found a pdf with info of the tapes, I convert to image because is protected:
I open the tabs in the 3 tapes, I record 1 minute and play correct
I put scotch tape in the hole 15 and 12, the betacam SP has the 2 and 3 opened and the 4 and 6 closed

I was seeing the overall schema from the Sony BVW-50P and in the dub output exist the Y, B-Y, R-Y and also the Y direct from de demodulator in 1 wire and the B-Y and R-Y direct from de demodulator in only 1 wire CTDM
These 5 signals are in all videos with dub inputs and outpus?
The dub has more quality that the BNC outputs?
I put a page from the overall:

I am new in a "Betacam technology" and I tried digitized some Betacam SP tapes..result is visually good, but I have some problem with stability of picture (lines) and I don't know if it is normal for this technology or I am doing something wrong.
I tried two players DVW-A510P and HDW-M2000, recorded via SDI (Blackmagic shuttle) but same result.
Here is a sample what I am meaning:
Will be same result with SP players?
Thank you for any idea or information about it

I have the Sony UVW-1800P
The part of the problem is where are the converts Y and B-Y R-Y (CTDM) to digital and after analogic output of the video
The problem is in the Y output, composite video and S video (these use the same Y) has the lines moving as out of sync the B-Y and R-Y run correct I saw in my oscilloscope
I put a image:
I have other UVW-1800P without Y in the output of the video
is same of the output of A/D D/A
This a frequent problem?
