The PALsite DIY Repair Centre hopes to help you identify and sort out problems with your Betamax. With all the information available here, we hope you might be tempted to dig in and get your hands dirty and possibly fix your own Betamax. If you are still not too sure how to proceed then email us and we might be able to suggest a suitable course of action.

Another source of information can be found at the Sony Direct Accessories & Parts Center. This site allows parts to be listed for a large number of Sony units. Unfortunately as time marches on, it is listing fewer and fewer units.

Our technical pages show far more symptoms and solutions to problems than listed here. First determine if your problem is covered there.
