Hey I recently got one of my spacers stuck in the thread of my vx. Mustve screwed it on a bit too tight and now I cant seem to get it to budge.

Anyone ever have this happen before? any tips to get it out would be greatly appreciated!

I had one that was STUCK stuck, pliers didn't help at all. The solution: use a rubber band. Like put a rubber band around the spacer itself, and then just twist it off with your hand. Worked instantly.
Is there any money in skateboarding film anymore?
I dunno about money, but the fun is boomin.

wrap a cloth in a vice and tighten it up. Not super tight. Stick your vx in and tighten it up and unscrew it

Hi guys. Got a request to help out with translating a Japanese VX on the VX1000 subreddit. Thought i'd post the PDF here if anyone needs a reference guide for translating. I don't have a Jap VX myself, just a PAL VX, so feel free to correct anything.

File size limit here was too small for the file so had to upload to Drive  :-\

Many thanks for sharing this. Really helpful for navigating the menu and custom presets.

I've got most of the Transworlds from around that period so am happy to scan it up if someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks

has anyone ran into something like this before?

https://i.imgur.com/QiMiP0B.jpg

footage played back via tape or external recorder is the same. you can slightly make out what the footage being played back is, but it's just covered in static. funny thing is, when i import it from my external recorder onto the computer - it is 100% fine.

Might be the viewfinder ribbon cable, they're known to break easily. Hasn't happened on any of my cameras yet so I'm not sure what it looks like.

Does the viewfinder look fine when you lay it flat, after you've taken the battery out and put it back in.

If it's a viewfinder issue then usually it should work fine when left flat or at least, has for me when I've had broken VF ribbon cables.
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

it doesn't look like a viewfinder ribbon cable issue imo (you wouldn't see clear text), but bad contacts on the VAP ribbon cable.

if you tap the side of the camera (not the tape side, the other one) does it look different ?

Strange. The times I got this gnarly static was when a board smoked my camera super hard. Just smacked the side of it and it eventually went away.

Thanks for the replies. Verified with Kerry and another VX1000 repair guru that the main board has gone bad. Literally the worst thing that can happen to a VX considering the only repair is a replacement main board which only exist in working cameras and that number likely goes down every day.

Curious if any one else here keeps a close watch on eBay listings for American NTSC VX1000s. There are literally only 7 listed right now. I honestly think in the next few years, working ones are going to be worth $2k+

Yes. I look everyday if not two or three times daily. I know a buddy that has plenty of parts. But not sure if he's willing to sell a main board... Best of luck

Incredible. I identify heavily with that shirt.

A few months ago I was on vacation eating at a restaurant while wearing a Sabotage shirt with a VX on the back and a random dude came up to me and started talking to me about skating hahaha.

I know VXs were designed to work with the technology of CRT TVs but has no one worked out how to fix the deinterlacing problems when uploading to youtube yet? Surely there's a simple fix

I donít think thatís from interlacing but when you have the sharpness turned all the way up on the custom presets it looks like that
