That is very odd. You could try to reinstall the software to it, but other than that I have no idea why it would switch.

Hope this helps.

Repair prices will vary from shop to shop and are usually most expensive when done by the factory. However, there are a few repair facilities that can repair your camera for you at a greatly reduced rate.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Solo he allado la versión en inglés, porque esta grabadora fue distribuida solamente en Estados Unidos y Canada. Podrá descargala desde este sitio.
Espero que le pueda ser util.
Un saludo, Carlos

Now in english, for other users out there:
I've found the english version only, since this model was, in theory, meant to the US and Canada markets only. Anyway, it can be downloaded from this location.
Hope it can be useful to you.
Regards, Carlos

Have you tried using another battery? Nine years old is much more than you can pay a rechargeable battery with the proper use and not very extensive. I think it's time to invest in a new battery. Now they are very cheap in the same brand, there are even other, known as "alternatives":

Hope this helps.

The only thing that you can try to do yourself is to run a head cleaner for about 5 to 10 seconds to see if that will clean up the heads. You might also try using direct power from an a/c adapter if you have one. Batteries that sit unused can go bad over time. Other than that, your mechanism may need repair or repairs may need to be done on the connections between your mechanism and your main pcb. Over time, those flex cables will oxidize and not make good contact with your board. These types of repairs should be done by an experienced technician.

Hope this has helped you.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry 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.

Yes, firewire or IEEE1394 also called iLink.
Most cameras have a 4 pin connection and Macs a 6, newer models use 9 pin.
iMovie should be on your Mac and this will capture the footage.

Disconnect the battery from the cam, it possible that it has a pocessor that is lock up and if youleave the battery out for a while it will reset back to normal.

First install your pictures motion browser in laptop. Then paired them using firewire. You should see now the pop up info on your screen. Just click it to go further to download your photos.

Either you have sent this message lots of times on subject, or 1000's of people like you have the same problem, maybe this is reason that people are not buying DVD cameras much today.
All I can say is try to do a Reset (see booklet) after that the disk should end, major problem is though with a DVD camera that does not end properly is the movie you think you filmed will not be on the disk anyway.
