Did anyone find a PDF manual for the VP1210 UK?

If so, could you let me know where to obtain it or could you email it to me? Cheers, H

Hello U-Matic Friends,

I have 22 NOS of Sony U-Matic KCA-60's, of which 12 are in an unopened case from Sony (still has staples in it, never been opened) as well as another case with 10 unopened/unused KCA-60's in it. These are the ones which have the colorful case graphic sleeve (red, green, yellow, blue stripes) and black case. Each case has the original contents inside and never been opened.

If you are interested (USA Only) please email me at my address below and i can send you pictures and discuss cost.

Thank you very much,

Hello everyone!

Wondering if anyone has a Sony Umatic DMR-4000 service manual for sale?

I'm also interested in Umatic 3/4" test/ alignment tape.

Looking forward!

Dear friends, I'm from Spain, sorry for my English. I have a problem with my SONY VO-8800P portable u-matic so player, because I play a tape and apears in black&white and without sound.

I don't know if there are a incompatibility problem between player/tape.

I hope your answer.

Best regards

Hi fellow U-matic users.

I am after around a dozen 7 pin Y/C Dub Cables that were used by most of the Broadcast U-matic machines back in the day.

If anyone knows where I can obtain these then please let me know

Alex Z
