One thing I found that may be useful is that you can tell the voltage and uF from the part number. The voltage is determined by the first letter after the "A0" or "A1". A=10v, C=16v, E=25v, H=50v,...

Yep, checked there- no cross reference I can find. Searches bring up related things, but not a replacement, or even the original specs.

AG-1980 cap replacement- 1k, 2k, 5k hours?

I'm tracking down all the caps I will need to do this, and most of them come in 1000, 2000 or 5000 hour life. The originals were all 1000 as far as I can tell, so I'm thinking at least 2000 hr would...

A question about the file listed above- There are about 32 part numbers that don't match anything on Mouser or Digi-key- I'm guessing they are obsolete. I'm also hoping that someone who has done the...

Yeah, that's why I did it with several other gears that were involved to see if it was specific to that one reel gear or if other parts that would change tape tension did it to.
I'm slowly taking...

I'm fairly sure it's not the tapes. My evidence- Tested 10 different tapes, all squeal in the 1980, but none of them squeal in my JVC. If I use a Q-tip to slightly touch the black take-up reel gear...

The AG-1980 service manual says it should be used in conjunction with the K-Manual, but that doesn't appear to be uploaded yet- so here it is.

Yes, I have another VCR that I usually rewind in. It just bothers me that the 1980 is not functioning as it should. I like to keep my equipment up to spec.

AG-1980 started squealing loudly in rewind?

As the title says, my 1980 has just started to make a loud squealing noise whenever I rewind T-120 tapes. I've tried about 10 now, they all do it to some extent. However, if I'm rewinding a...

Yeah, I had put a 6 line crop in Amarec a while ago and forgot it was still on. I use that because VirtualDub drops frames and loses audio sync, and I like it's interface better.
So it sounds like I...

Took a while, but I got the same clip with the 1980 alone, 1980+es15, 1980+es15+dvk, no color processing and 1980+es15+dvk with color processing. I only have a few commercial VHS tapes, and none of...

I agree, I wasn't suggesting you use StaxRip permanently (Unless, of course, you want to), just use it to get comfortable with the code, then move on to the official Avisynth.
