Question about Sony Betacam SP Small Videocassette 30 Minutes Digital Betacam SP Tape
Haste is sometimes so counterproductive! Didn't notice the tape was a digital betacam version before loading it into the UVW-1800 ... now I can't get it out!! Any suggestions out there?? Although relatively obsolete, I need this deck working. I'd be most thankful for some advice on solving this problem. Thanks everyone! don in NJ
Digital tapes should still eject normally (they are the same size and shape) which indicates that it has jammed somewhere inside.
If you want to fix it yourself you will have to remove the cover and check the tape.
If the cassette hasn't spooled up and all the tape is inside the cassette you should be able to unscrew the carriage (the cradle that takes the tape in and down) and remove it that way.
If the tape has spooled around the heads there is a cog (can't remember the exact position of it) arranged vertically near the side of the machine that you can manually wind the spooling arms back into the cassette.
