Tip & How-To about Video Cameras

Dew /condensation error in camera.

In many occassions the camera had refused to work especilly when you have visited the mountains or the sea side. Hence sure that the camcorders with the tape recording is kept safe to prevent accumulation of water condensation.
Your camera refuses to work after being exposed inside an AC or cold room. There is a DEW sensor within the camera as a protection as when there is condensation due to cool condition within the camera, the tape can get chewed into the cylinder head drum.
So all what you need to do is to keep the camera in a warm place, use a hair dryer slighly into the door after ejecting tape or you can put the set On overnight without any harm.
When you travel keep the camera covered with a blanket and do not expose the camera to direct AC vent.

Sony PC-105 - camera won't charge, hence tape will not eject. Is


I just had the same issue except I left my camera out in the rain. My camera is a DCRF-HC32 Sony Handicam. There is a reset button on the side of the camera where the eject door is. Take a paper clip and hold the reset button in for 5-10 secs. The camera will beep, power on, open the door and it ejected.

Dropped Sony Camcorder in sea water


This isn't a solution specific to your problem, but maybe similar enough to help. I've dropped both my cell phone and iPod in the water. My friend told me to fill a bowl with uncooked rice and submerge the cell phone in the rice to draw out the water - took about 2 days and all was working fine - same with the iPod, but it took longer (about a week.) You might want to gently clean the battery connections with a Q-tip if you're seeing residue. Good luck!

Hi

I have had this camera for around 4 years now. It works fine. I basically plug in the firewire connection on my camera switch it on to playback/camera mode then plug the other end into to my computer my operating system picks it up fine without any problems. It doesn't require any drivers windows will auto install any drivers it needs. Not sure why you are getting this problem.
