Question about Samsung VP-W60 Camcorder
I have a samsung VP-W60 8mm camcorder which has a problem in playback and camera mode. in the playback it shows moving horizontal black & white lines (the tape has material recorded on it so its not a blank) in the camera mode there is no image, its just an all-white raster. i've checked the obvious like the lens cover etc. and tried all buttons so its definately faulty. it looks to me like both problems are linked as i'm positive the heads are not at fault. any suggestions welcome. thanks.

Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck

I had the same problem with Samsung SCD103. It was sent to the factory January 2007($150.00) and everything worked fine until last week when the grandkids came down. The camera simply stopped displaying any image, the viewfinder went black. I suspect is a failure on the CCD. Now, I have a non-working camera that I've bought extra batteries for and lots of DV tapes. I won't buy another Samsung product now that I've seen the problems and apparent lack of concern for the customer!

MiniDV cameras have two video heads on the rotating drum, which read and write the picture in broad horizontal bands. When one head is not working, normally because it is clogged by dust/dirt/tape residue, you see broad bands of noise across the image occupying exactly half the total image area.......
