CCU-M5 information
on Sep 21, 2010 at 8:43:05 pm

Hi,
I was wondering if someone can help me.

I purchased a used Sony DXC-930 camera and a a used Sony CCU-M5 separately on EBay. I can't seem to get them to work.

The Panel Active light just flashes on the CCU-M5.
No picture or anything. When I switch on the color bar switch on the CCU-M5 I don't even get color bars.

Will the color bar switch work without a working camera?

Thanks in advance

Fred

Fred,

Although I am not expert on that particular camera nor CCU, I know that Sony CCU's must sometimes to turned on in the menu. Try searching the menu operations and maintainance pages for something appropriate. Also, with some models you must either connect the CCU with the camera power off or recycle the power once connected for a proper "handshake" between the two units. It could also be as simple as a bad cable!

Thanks.
Actually the good idea you gave me was to get a service manual. Which I've done.

I also received another camera today and it works with the CCU-M5. So apparently the first camera is dead.

Appreciate the advice.

Fred,

You might be being a little hasty; check the menu for an on/off CCU function before you dismiss the camera as broken.

Hi Fred,


Please check the cable you are using. CCU-M5 will output camera video or color bar signal only when the camera is connected and detected. CCU blinking panel active light indicates no camera communication.

DXC-930 & CCU-M5 are joined together through CCTZ-3RGB or CCTZ-3YC cable (20 pin male to 26 pin male) connected to Cable extension adaptor CCZZ-1E to CCZA cable (26 to 26 pin) or through CCTQ-3RGB cable (20 pin male to 14 pin male) using cable extender 14 to 14 pin CCQQ-1 to CCQ-AM cable.

Hope this is helpful. If you need additional support please call our tech support group at 800/883-6817 (M-F, 9AM-8PM EST) and hopefully they can assist.

Best,

Ian

Hi fred, I found your thread looking for a M5 Manual (at work they have 5 of these CCU and I'm trying to learn a bit more about them, because when we're working I don't have much time -I can't be at the camera and at the CCU at the same time...-) Any information you have will be helpful.

Thanks a lot

I'm sorry I don't understand?

Can I help you with something specific?

Hi Fred, I'm sorry about my English. What I was trying to get is (if it exists) some user manual or any other info about the M5 operation.

I work on a mobile unit (is this name correct?) as a cameraman and I want to learn a bit more about the operation of the CCU, but when I'm at work I have no time to investigate with the equipment. So I started looking on the web but I couldn't find much info.

Did I explain myself?

Thanks a lot

i have older DXCD30 cameras; want to replace just the camera body with DXCD55H cameras - will the DXCD55H work with CCU-M5 control and DXF-51 viewfinder? also, please confirm if I will need CAD50 adapter and will that work with older 26 pin cables? we are running just an analog composite system

thanks

Hi Michael-

The M5 cannot be used with the D55. They are not compatible. The DXF51 can be used with the D50.

thanks! I think the CCU cables are older also; shouldn't be any issues around the 26 pin CCU cables, right? the newer cables are CCZAD-xxx which I think means they are digital (i.e. support SDI) and the older ones are CCZA-xxx which are analog. I hope we can use the older cables; let me know if that is an issue.

Hello Ian,
I am at Tenafly High School in New Jersey. I have a couple of questions if you might have a little time about Sony CCU-700A and BVP-700 of which I am looking to integrate intercom / tally (pinout on the 19 pin male and obtaining that female connector) and paint (is the RMB-150 or 750 compatible?) - looking for cost effective solutions . Also have a DXC-750 camera and an M5 ccu - the light on the ccu blinks - wondering about compatibility.
Knowing how busy you must be, we would especially appreciate any advice. David Di Gregorio 201-816-6617 ddigregorio@gmail.com
