  1. Hi guys, I've recently bought a vx1000 for parts off a friend to fix another VX1000 (and yes I made sure the parts I needed were working before I bought it). The original vx (which we'll call vx1) had problems with the tape deck jamming open, everything else was working other than the tape deck. I looked this up and it turned out that the power supply board was broken and wasn't sending power to the tape deck so it stayed open. I took vx1 apart a few times and put it back together again and one the last time (probably the 3rd time I did so) when I put the battery in it wasn't working. Then I bought VX2 today took it apart and used the power supply board from that and put it in VX1 and it's still not turning on. I can't afford repairs and was really relying on fixing this camera, so if anyone knows what to do please let me know. And yes it's on standby and it's not the battery
  2. Hi guys, I've recently purchased a VX1000, and a tape got caught in the mechanism. I've managed to cut the ribbon and free the tape, however the tape deck is jammed and won't close. I've recently lost a job and can't afford a repair and was hoping one of you guys would have a soloution to fix it. If anyone has any info on how to fix it or where to buy another tape deck from, that would be dope.

  6. Looking to sell my Sony VX1000 setup in order to buy an HD setup. The VX1000 is in great working condition, I just had the ribbon cable replaced and heads cleaned about 2 months ago by Video Electronics. The body of the camera shows very minimals signs of wear (it's practically mint but shows a couple very minors scratches due to normal usage). The Century Optics MK1 is also in great shape. However, it does have a very small nick on the upper right side of lens (you can somewhat see it in the picture that I took but it's really small). I have only used Sony Premiums in the camera since I purchased it and have never captured on the camera. I have used this camera for years and have never had any issues, I am sad to let it go but I need to move on and try something new. The setup includes: Sony VX1000 Century Optics MK1 3 Sony Batteries + Sony Charger Canon Backpack Looking for $1200 + Shipping, no trades. Shoot me a PM or email if you have any questions: Mfs5126@psu.edu.

  10. Hey, yesterday i got my vx but it doesnt work so I fixed my old japanese vx from parts of new. I replaced tape deck mechanism but camera commanded me to eject tape by eject symbol on VTR and CAMERA mode. After that I replaced only head drum and VTR working without any problems but in CAMERA mode still show eject symbol and beeping from tape deck. Anyone know how to fix it? I'm from poland so i cant shipping to kerry :/ http://s23.postimg.org/4p28nh7ez/vx111.jpg http://s23.postimg.org/wdovuzuff/vx122.jpg
  11. Unused

    Some footage that I've had on my hard drive for the past half a year so I thought I'd make a rushed edit of all these clips.
  12. My sony vx1000 has had some major problems last month due to VAP damage from filming in Vietnam rainy season (it was really humid). Anyway Prior to it going all blurry and weird i filmed over 19 hours of footy. We didn't have a capture cam so we only viewed back the footage if it was a land, and NEVER used it to capture footy. So i know everything was there. A friend sent over an old capture cam from the uk, but it was knackered so i got new heads put in the capture cam here in Vietnam (It saves to just have them replaced than searching and haggling for ages to get cheap mini dv cameras). Anyway all the footy on the mini dv tapes that were filmed with the vx1000 are showing up as blurry/glitchy as if the heads in the capture cam are fucked but if you record using the capture cam they work fine. My sony vx got sent to Japan and the VAP got replaced and was working fine, but i got robbed last week so i no longer have the VX so i cant even have a quick peek to see if the tapes play fine on the vx. Everything that was filmed after the VAP was replaced was in the bag that got stolen. So i cannot check any of the new footy filmed with the vx. Need help with this one, don't want to loose 19 hours of footy.
  13. I have just received my Sony Vx1000 back from Japan from being repaired. The main problem before was the VAP was damaged due to moisture from filming on a very humid day in Vietnam. Well ive had the camera back for less than a few hours and no footy is being recorded onto the tape. I filmed for 45-50 mins and the tape is blank. Not even a glitch. The timer counts up as it does when you record, but when you stop the tape the number's return to -.-.-.-.-.-. as if i had not pressed record. Played back an old tape, footy was fine. This was one of the reasons why i sent it to get repaired. I mentioned this problem before i sent it back and he said "The heads will be professionally cleaned as well as VAP being replaced.". So if its not the heads and its not the VAP i've just sunk $200. Tonight was cool and clear so i know it is not moisture damage. Brand new sony premium tape also.
  14. I would like my video critiqued on Editing and Filming. I'm new to my vx and i'm wondering what my filming is like! Thanks!
  15. Raymond

    Hey SP, I've got for sale a never used Raymod (Raynox MX3000) and want to sell it however I don't have enough posts to post in the 3CCD and Death Lens'. So therefore I'm also willing to trade it with one or two VX1000 batteries. The fisheye can also come with the Sony VCL-0637H .6x to mod it and a 52mm-58mm Step Up Ring so it can fit a VX1000. The .6x middle element is the same as the one in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bDe7x2nwWg I'm sorry but I can't post pictures here so PM if you're interested. Only looking for about £50 for it all (about US $60-$70).
  16. After filming a night session my Sony VX1000 started being blurry. All the settings were fine- white balance/shutter speed/ aperture was all set and was working fine. Even when everything is on auto the image looks grainy and blurry. It looks as if there is condensation in the viewfinder. We played back an old tape and the footy looks fine. Recorded onto a new tape and the footy is all blurry and hazy. After fiddling around with shutter speeds, ND filters etc thinking it must be something i have accidentally pressed, the image in the viewfinder went black but all the icons in the viewfinder remained. The camera was taken to a camera repairman but he just said the lens was old. I live in Vietnam so translation can be difficult. Im not sure if its a possible ribbon cable problem, its been working fine up untill this point,(Apart from dirty head problems) it has not been dropped or had a lens hit from a board. The image in the viewfinder miraculously came back a few hours after it had gone black but the image is still blurry and grainy. My VX is Japanese so I do not know all the settings in the "menu".
