This message is for the owners of the web:

In the section, Betacam format the list characteristics is for NTSC machines because appears 1800 RPM and major speed tape

Do you change these characteristics to the same of the PAL machines?

Jon Lipman this message belongs to the Betamax section but I saw the characteristics and appears that this camera run in 2 centimeters/ second (Beta II)

The vcrs beta run in other speed more slow

I think that your tapes don't run correct in a normal vcr

Today I know that some beta cameras run in other speed and I am surprised

I knowed that the NTSC run in various speeds but in PAL I thought that only has one speed as Betacam PAL

Ron NEVER clean again the heads with acetone, this will destroy the heads

But you can to clean with alcohol, the best alcohol is isopropyl for clean

If I am confused I wait that someone warn me

And the best quality of this vcr is by the Y, B-Y and R-Y outputs, is the same quality of RGB but this vcr hasn't this outputs

For convert to digital you need a Y, B-Y, R-Y or RGB + sync input recorder

But the digital players has less quality of the Betacam SP players

Betacam digital perhaps but Betacam SX or IMX is worse, (has compression)

Also DV and mini DV too are worse, (has compression)

Perhaps the M2 format has the same quality of Betacam SP, here appears:

Is correct to use Betacam Digital, SX, IMX and HD Cam tapes in machines that only play and record in Betacam SP?

Hi, does anyone know the original price in the UK, of betacam decks Sony PVW-2800P, or BVW-75P ?

Yes I have searched via google very thoroughly but cannot get a definitive answer!

Hi All,

Hope your well well !

I am looking to buy 2x Sony DVW-500P with good HO2 and H12 hours, ideally a later machine so 17xxxx onwards with regards to the Serial number.

It has to be the 500P and not the A500P !

Thanks in advance

Chris.

Hi, I own quite a few old ex broadcast kit. My BVW-75P was playing a tape yesterday when the picture suddenly disappeared on the monitor. The TCR code still shows, sound is ok too, but no picture. The monitor does show that a PAL signal is present.

I have lifted and replaced all the cards I can see, but still nothing. Looking at the technical manual, perhaps the fault lies with one of the TBC cards, caps look ok on all the cards?

The picture was stable and no noticable issues before it disappeared.

Hi, in answer to your questions about the Betacam VTR. Nothing on any video output. Heads have been properly cleaned (which was the first thing I tried). I tried another TBU board and the picture returned briefly until I once again was suffering firstly from picture blocking and then total failure.

Any further suggestions?

Thanks

Phil if you put a signal in a input this appears in the outputs?

Checking the composite video, s-video and Y, B-Y, R-Y inputs and outputs

I have not tried to see if an input into the machine produces an output - will try this and report back!

Phil this is called E-E or electronic to electronic

For to be clear the inputs signals is changed to FM signals and changed again for to be a normal signal

This only appears in Betacam and U-matic vcrs but in VHS, Betamax and Video 2000 don't appears because is more expensive to put this circuit

I have now tried to put a composite signal into the machine and yes, I do see an ouput. Do you need me to confirm the same for all inputs and outputs?
