Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Hi, I have an ellura 85 digital video camcorder. Up to date, I have had no problems with it. Three days ago I went to video my daughter's surprise visit from her grandparents who traveled from Canada to Australia and the video rejected the cassette. I thought o.k. film's full, so I grabbed a previously used (and rewinded)cassette and put it in the chamber. The chamber closed, then made a sound as if it were rewinding for about 10 seconds and then dinged and ejected the cassette. So, I bought four new cassettes and tried a new one to have the same rountine happen. My daughter gets married in three days, I need this camcorder to work! Please help. I looked in my instruction manual and found no help. Please help. yours truly, Maureen Hamilton

SOURCE: cassettes not rewinding

The heads could also just need a good cleaning, either professionally or using a head cleaner dv tape. It's important to remember to always use the same manufacturer dv tape all the time. Evidently, Sony and Panasonic do not mix well, and the lubricants from those two tapes combined will gum up the works. If you use Sony dv's, always use a Sony head cleaner and vice versa. Cold can also cause those lubricants to gum up. Sometimes simply fast forwarding will loosen things up.

SOURCE: Canon GL1 Remove cassette error

I certainly don't intend to be rude or obnotious but your comments on this known prpblem are contraditory to say the least! :
"The problem that you are experiencing with your Canon GL1 camcorder is a common complaint on this model camcorder. The “eject the tape error” is the camcorders way of saying something is wrong and it needs to be sent in for repair. It is not a defect with the camcorder, it is simply the most common complaint when the mechanical assembly is not running smoothly and perfectly." If something is wrong and it's a common problem then it must be defect?!?! Also your pricing for this "repair" is pretty close half of what a used GL goes for over here in Europe. I would definatly be looking for another quote and repair service other than yours!

SOURCE: Can not load any cassette even empty cassette holder can not be closed.

I had the same problem and solved it by removing the battery to allow the camera to reset. Worked fine after that.

SOURCE: Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD

You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

Canon Optura 40 playback - only get blue screen - no image, no sound


Try a cleaning tape. Buy a good quality cleaning tape (Panasonic makes one) and remember: cleaning tapes are abrasive so don't overuse it! Overuse can result in the need to replace the rotating drum assy in the camcorder. I'll bet a cleaning tape takes care of your problem.

I can not turn the day/date feature OFF on my Hitachi DZ mv550 camcorder


The instructions says there is a rechargable battery in the camera that maintains the date. It suggests that if the battery is exhausted the date and time will be reset (no definition of reset). It further says to connect the AC adapter/charger at least once every three months for 24 hours. You might try not using the adapter for three months and seeing if reset means no date/time at all or just 00/00/00. Steve

Help with my Panasonic nv-ds1 camcorder ? ? ?


Its the tape is stuck or the mechanism is jammed or the small pan caps have started there demise of your camcorder.. Inside most camcorders there are small surface mounted capacitors made by panasonic and they all I say ALL will leak one day and when they do its not just the cap thats bad but if left unattended it will eat up the Printed curcuit traces on the pc board. Have the unit looked at right away by a camcorder expert and see if its too late to save the board. Good Luck
