Don is right on. Pin #1 is common/negative and pin#4 is hot/12volts. The sync light should come on briefly upon start-up and stay off when running. It's really an out-of-sync alarm.
Put some film in the mag and fire her up. If your processed images look sharp and steady, you're ready to rock.

Sorry Bernie I should have told him of you, we have never met but like you I worked for Samuelson's, from 72-82 some of the best days of my life ran the Sound Maintenance Dept and the Video Assist after Joe Dunton left.

This is what I bought and used it just fine on an Eclair NPR. I able to run both the camera and the video tap off the same battery without any adverse affect on the motor. Though I'm not sure if it's the most healthy thing to do.

Hi James,

The Pro Video Battery looks great!
But do you know what is the dimensions and the weight of the battery?

Thanx...
