Default Two Panasonic VHS machines

Two Panasonic VHS video machines. A 4-head NV-SD40 and a 3-head NV-J42. They were both domestic machines used by myself and taken out of service many years ago. Excellent cosmetic condition as seen in the photos. As I recall the 42 had a weak tuner issue, but I cannot recall the status of the other. It's fair to assume that they are certainly not 'plug and play' now. The remote and user manual for the 42 is included. 15 the pair, collected from Rugeley, Staffs. No shipping.

The top unit states: "World Video Communication!" Does that mean that it will play back PAL, Secam and NTSC tapes?
Just inquiring!
I have a JVC VHS Multi-mode unit, that plays back all three.

If it is, then it is certainly worth saving.

These units are well -made, dating from the 'golden era' of video, hope someone can save them. I'm sure there was a member on here with a liking for the G-decks!

Hi,

The J42 uses the 'G' deck. One of the last ones I think. I loved them. I used to rebuild them in customers houses, daily, we had hundreds on rental and maintenance. The SD40 on the other hand uses the 'K' deck, and I think was one of the first.

I'd argue both are worth saving if the upper cylinders are serviceable

Best
Stu

If there are no takers here, try them on eBay. Even non-working VHS recorders are fetching respectable prices again!

The chap who runs VideOdyssey, the new video rental shop in Liverpool, may be interested in these. He seems quite keen to rescue any prerecorded tapes and machines.
