First post here.
I'm trying to digitize personal home video, but am having problems with this Sony EV-S3000. It records to tape without problem. It will also pass through video from line in without problem. This deck has been in the family since it was new. Also, I bought a second machine on eBay
Both PSUs recapped, restoring normal operations. The eBay
unit has a bad VFD transformer.
The eBay unit also ejects tapes, of which I have not been able to figure out why.
I've swapped several parts between the two, but no luck.
Any suggestions? Here is a link to a sample video:
