    Default Toshiba Beta VCR Model V-m32

    I have a Toshiba V-m32 Beta we bought new in 1983. It has been unused for a few years, and I found it inoperative. After taking the covers off and troubleshooting it I found a rubber belt under the bottom cover that drives the outer portion of the head. The belt and a small rubber wheel from the motor shaft have almost liquefied. Does anyone know where parts can be obtained?

    I did a bit more looking before I replaced the cover. The belt drove the tape drive wheel on the top side of the chassis, not the head. It is a large cast aluminum flywheel about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

    Stereo TV broadcasting hadn't started in the UK when this Betamax was launched. In those days, it was common for the BBC to broadcast live music concerts in mono on TV and simultaneously in stereo on FM radio. The 'Simulcast' button on the SL-HF100UB enabled the TV picture to be recorded together with the stereo sound from the radio broadcast.

    Hello !!
    Bought today a V-M32 like new.
    With its original remote, carton box, even the polystirene stuff !!
    Even has the blue tool for channel adjust !!!!!!

    But I checked and all belts are made goo.


    1) opening lower cover, there´s one flat small (no idea what is for).
    Other big one , flat for a drum

    Upper side has the one for eject motor.

    And how do I replace the counter one??? Should I remove the front panel?
