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

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?

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

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!

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.

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.
