The quick fault solution system has hopefully now been fixed, so fixing tips can be added to each model again.

HI ALL.

I'm currently looking to buy a Betacam cleaner - something along the lines of a RTI 4100 tape cleaner.

Does any one know of anything available.

Kindest Regards

Chris

Is there anyone who knows what Error code 01 means on an Ampex CVR-75 (= Sony BVW-75 )? And what to do?

Error code 01 means that there is tape slack and the machine went into tape protection.

Clean the whole threading path and make sure it can complete the cycle.

hello all. very nice informative site you have here. hope it's ok to post ?

I've been into analog tape for 40 years. lately I'm buying old gear just to hear it.

the Betamax and Betacam format peaked my interest. I lucked into a Betamax w/stereo processor for only $20 USD.

my next experiment will be the early Betacam, the analog machines that use oxide tape, (not the SP and later format).

I know these early Betacam machines accept the standard small analog cassette with 30 minutes play time.

my question is, will a Betacam BVW-40 also accept a 12" large cassette ??

reason being I have found a small quantity of 12" tapes I'd like to try.

if anyone has one of these machines, could you post a reply ?

or, measure the depth and width of the tape well, and advise if it's configured to accept the large tape 90min.

thank all in advance, take care

Does anyone have any EPK's from older movies? Back in the 90's, I believe they were all on U-Matic or Betacam. Was looking to see if anyone had any leads on them.

Melhor para postar perguntas em Inglês, não muitos Protugese é falado por aqui ....

O Google Tradutor é muito útil: https://translate.google.com

E a HF950 é uma máquina BetaMAX, não uma BetaCAM, a melhor para postar no fórum certo.

Hi!

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,

2 Sony Betamax, one SL-C7e and one SL-8000e, 2 Philips, one VR -2025 Video 2000 and one N-1700 VCR Longplay

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?
