This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I have recorded a video to the mini tape and I now want to move it to a memory card. The owner's manual is very vague on how to do this. Can you help?
