Magnavox VR8280BK01 Newvicon Color Video Camera won't power up!

Magnavox VR8280 Newvicon Color Video Camera and Magnavox 2-piece VHS Deck & Tuner (VR8481BK01, VR8451BK01 & VR8462BK01).

We really want to get this thing up and running.

This is the story behind this camera that we recently purchased from a neighbour. The original owner worked in a local electronics store in the 1980s and bought this three-piece unit new, in 1983, for a whopping $2,700! Ten years ago, he bought a digital camera and put this up in the attic in storage. They took it out to sell at a garage sale, it powered up fine, they switched it off to move it, and it hasn't powered since.

The camera and its VCR two-part unit have been kept in very nice condition (very clean). The 13-pin cable seems straight, and its hold on both ends seems strong. The VHS unit works fine as a stand-alone.

The trouble is that we aren't getting any power from the VHS unit to the camera. We have the manuals for both "parts" of the set-up, but they haven't helped.

We DID see a BOLD precaution about powering the unit up for an hour or two every six months or the pickup tube would lose efficiency. The owner hadn't turned it on for about ten years. It DID, remember, power up for him at first, but it's deader 'n a doornail now.

Any help would be appreciated. I've researched this thing until I've nowhere left to look. Can someone verify that this model is indeed identical to the Magnavox VR8282 & VR8283 models, as well as JVC GX-N70U, GX-N80U, and GX-N90U models?

My daughter would REALLY like to get this working. Thanks for your help!

Janis,

The newvicon tube in the camera probably burned out from nonuse and age. I have several of these cameras and tubes. Would you be interested in selling? Email me at: terolar@cs.com

    I JUST BOUGHT THE SAME CAMERA AT A YARD SALE. IT DID NOT COME WITH ANYTHING TO CHARGE IT WITH. IT DID COME WITH ONE CORD IT CONNECTS TO THE CAMERA AND THE OTHER END IN ROUND AND HAS PRONGS. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON WHAT KIND OF BATTERY I NEED PLEASE EMAIL ASAP. ALSO IM SURE WHAT KIND OF CARD IT TAKES TO HOLD THE RECORDINGS. RATHER ITS A CARD OR TAPE OR SIMCARD.

Can DVD DISKS BE COPIED FROM VHS TAPES ON A dual; DECK MACHINE?


There are machines made just for that task such as the Magnavox DVD recorder. There is a VHS tape deck on one side and a DVD recorder on the other side. You can copy a VHS tape to a DVD and copy a DVD onto a VHS tape as well

I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

(If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?


Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

I can capture video into FINAL CUT from VHS deck via ADVC-300, but there is no audio. Is this common?


it should not be. Are you getting audio signal levels on the ADVC-300? I think it may be a connection problem. I always get audio from vhs, even through a camera or hdv deck. Never mind a converter box.

Noisy video on tuner input


Well, if replacing the tuner did not solve it, the next likely culprit is the power supply. Does it look OK on A/V cable input? You didn't say what brand this is but all the older Matshushita made VCRs (panasonic, sylvania, quasar, magnavox ond others) have power supplies that fail often in this manner spewing out noise that interferes with the video signals. Some of us know how to repair the supplies as they are usually not available for replacement.
