  BETA BETAMAX
  4-HEAD VCR
         MODEL VCR-6400
VCR6400
Circa 1984-85  
SOLD 2/21/12

   
We have completely gone through this unit. Refurbished and ready to go, Sanyo Beta VCR for dubbing your tapes to hard drive, DVD or VHS of just for watching them. All of it's mechanics have been serviced. The entire transport cleaned and re-lubed and now all works great. We replaced the typically troublesome fast wind / take-up idler tire and belt, so Play Take-up, FF & REW work great which ultimately means it won't eat your tapes! One great design feature about this machine is that it is direct drive and does not require a main motor belt. Video and Audio heads have been cleaned and demagnetized as have all the parts in the transport. We also replaced the 'Load / Eject' tape as well as the tape transport 'loop' belt. All RCA I/O port jacks re-soldered for solid connection.
 
 We have tested the transport in both playback and record modes. All works great. Probably one of the best performing decks we have ever had in either speed, but especially fabulous in Beta II speed. Tracking responds as it should. Will also play tapes made from "BetaMovie" video cameras.
 
  Features include:
  
 
 - Front Loading 
- 4 Video Heads for clearer 'pause', 'fast cue' and 'single frame advance' modes
 - Standard Beta II or III speed modes
  - IC Logic "Touch" transport controls
   - Digital tape counter and clock
   - Manual Tracking controls for standard speed and pause / single frame modes
- Mono Audio Playback
  - Analog 13 channel TV tuner
  - RCA & "F" connector terminals for all I / O's
 - Timer Play / Record Mode
   

  
 
Unit now works great after restoration. All functions work well. We did test recordings and played a number of tapes completely following refurb. Tuner function untested as it's analog and since 2010 obsolete. Looks near new. Again, this deck plays back very well. Would make a great deck for as video transfer business tool!
 Measures 17.5" wide x 15" deep x 6.5" high and weighs 22 lbs unpacked. Includes our standard 30 day video limited warranty.

SANYO
MODEL VCR-4020
BETA BETAMAX
VCR
Circa 19
83-84
 FOR SALE
Front-loading, Sanyo VCR-4020 Beta / Betamax VCR. We have completely gone through this unit, cleaning inside and out, including the heads and transport, however it still has an issue with lines of distortion in it's video playback. Adjusting the tracking both internally then externally with the control does not make it "go away" completely. Loads, Ejects, FF & Rew fine. We reconditioned the rubber pinch roller and replaced the internal belts. We checked all heads / tape path for azimuth, adjusting where necessary. We also checked for excessive Wow & Flutter in the sound. The replaced and reconditioned rubber took care of any issues there. We also de-magnetized the heads and entire transport. Fixed the typical "sluggishness" of 20+ year old VCR's FF and Rew. All lamps and displays function fine. Beta II & III speeds in mono sound. Tracking adjustment.  Unfortunately it is still distorted on playback. All the mechanics seem to work fine. We don't have the resources to pursue it any further, than just the basic bench check we've done.
Selling for parts. As-Is.

PANASONIC
MODEL PV-1200X
TOP LOADING

VHS VCR
Circa
late 1970's to very early 1980's
 FOR SALE
Selling for repair, parts or Prop use. Does power up. Had all internal belts melted from age. We replaced them all with new, but  the drive switch is not shutting off when loading a tape, so it continues to run. We removed the belt for the tape pull drive. VCR lights up and clock sets. Looks good with normal, minor wear. May be an easy fix, but we assume it will be sought after only for prop use so we didn't go further with it.

SONY
MODEL SL-25
BETA BETAMAX
VCR
Circa Mid 80's

 FOR SALE
Needs work.
NEAR NEW looking, Front-Loading, Dual-speed (Beta II & Beta III), Sony SL-25 Beta VCR. Unfortunately this machine has load issues. It will load, (with some internal help) and sometimes wrap the tape through the tape path, but then immediately rejects and ejects. May be electronic problem or just an issue from sitting around un-used for so long. We did not go any further with work on it. Too many other "fish to fry".
Cosmetically near new condition. Measures 17" wide x 14.5" deep 3.25" x high and weighs 18 lbs unpacked.
