Default Re: Sony SL-F30 not unloading

Fivos ,
That is one thing that only Sanyo can answer. The magazine reviewers used to comment about that too.
The former was no doubt down to less electronic mechanicals and less weight plus lower cost to produce.
The VTC 5000 was manys introduction to the world of home taping and rental movies, myself included ,and at the time was unbeatable value.
The picture quality knocked spots of all VHS models made around that time too.They had to introduce 'VHS HQ' around 1986/7 to even get that format an acceptable playback quality.
