    Hello everyone,

    I recently rescued a late 60s Sony EV-200 Videocorder but after getting it home it turns out it has no power cable, and frankly, I have no idea what I am doing. It’s quite a great piece but I am at a loss on where to start with it. Not sure that this is the perfect place to be asking regarding this item, but figured it was worth a shot to see if anyone knows people in Edmonton who might be able to give me a nudge in the right direction with this piece. Willing to learn how to do basic repair work of course, but I am really ignorant on much of what needs to be done with it I am sure.

    Thanks in advance

    Joel

    Found this link: https://www.labguysworld.com/Sony_EV-200.htm.

    If you post a pic of the machine with a closeup of where the plug goes, someone here should be able to help you.

    Hey Gary, thanks for that link.

    I tried attaching some photos but it seems they are being flagged for being too large. I will try and get a few uploaded today!

    EDIT: Ok, found a way to make them smaller. They seem to work now.

    I found way to shrink them and updated the post with pictures. Thanks!

    Hi Joel, I had help, but I think I found what you’re looking for. Check this site: https://www.surplussales.com/ELECTRICAL/ELECAC-2.HTML . I think you would need: Hubbell Midget Female line connector 15 amp (CNE) HBL 7484

    I’ll look into that part and see what I can dig up. Really appreciate it. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to this, so big learning curve!

    Hey Joel,
    News about your machine isn’t great. Here’s how someone with experience with them reacted when I re-posted a picture for help with the plug….

    “OMG a helical scan consumer VTR. I’d hoped to never even see a picture of one again lol.

    You could easily convert that special connector over to a modern IEC type. Good luck getting it to work. Parts would be virtually unobtanium, and people with the skills and test gear are few and far between, and usually not in the same place ;-)”

    I’m guessing you have a pretty rare thing, but not necessarily in a good way. Might make a great static display, but I would still get a cord or plug so you could play with it.

    Good luck, Gary
