I've looked through the menus, searched the operations menu and the internet and cannot fiind where to display the drum hours. Is anyone familiar with this camera and it's menus?

Thanks.

Hi,

Look at the time code display with the cover lifted. A pen is needed to press a recessed switch then they can be displayed on the time code display. There are several menu's available using the timecode set switches. The maintaince manuel will give you more details, sorry I am not near a camera now so can't tell you exactly the sequence.

Just in case anyone ever has this problem:

Under the flap on the side there is a little hole labeled "Diag" which can be pressed with a paperclip. This brings up the menu on the timecode display which you can scroll through by using the advance and set buttons. 1. Drum Running hours 2. Tape Running hours 3. Operation hours 4. Threadings

Press the "Diag" button again to leave the menu and return to regular timecode display.

Cheers!

There are also some other settings for sound and battery warning voltages etc.
