Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

My camcorder I'm sorry, I don't know where the same old question thread is so I have to apologise for not following your suggestion. If my previous email was unclear. I have a Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100E PAL camcorder (this is the exact name of my product, as opposed to what the drop down list makes me pick). The picture I am receiving in standby mode or record mode is inadequate because I am not getting a vivid, colourful picture. The picture is greenish generally, which is dull looking. You suggested that I adjust the white balance. However, I had already tried this. When I push the indoor function, the colour is blue and when I use the outdoor function, it is green. I cannot get rich reds, blacks, orange etc. The colours are tinged with green or blue. I hope you can give me some good advice, evn if this is not threaded right.

If you are not getting good color picture then I would advise to perform white balance adjustments in service data with help of concern service manual.
This kind of adjustments required service data handling tools, reference color charts, proper and up to date service manual etc.
Please contact nearest Sony service center for proper fix.

Check with JVC online and see if there is a software driver download for your camera. You may need to contact their customer support. Also try using google to find a driver for the camera.

Auto power off


Link to user manual

No you can't turn off this feature

Nathan Petersen June 17th, 2005, 04:03 PM Is there away to turn the auto power off off. I dont think there is, just thought I'd ask, thanks. Don Palomaki June 17th, 2005, 08:47 PM Not on the original XL1. It will drop into STANDBY from PAUSE if there is a tape in the transport after around 5 minutes. If there is NOT a tape in the camcorder it will not not drop into STANDBY but will remain operating as a camera. Xander Christ June 17th, 2005, 09:25 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true. Don Palomaki June 18th, 2005, 07:33 AM True - in that when using the battery, the camcorder will shut down when the battery runs out of available charge. However, using the A/C adapter does not prevent the XL1 from going into standby if a tape is in the camcorder. Nathan Petersen June 18th, 2005, 04:52 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true.

No it still does it with the AC adapter, Im not even using the battery. It makes no sense to have the auto power off when shooting indoors while using the AC adapter, its just stupid. Don Palomaki June 19th, 2005, 05:59 AM Again, the key point is having a tape in the XL1. After about 5 minuts it goes into Standby mode (not the same as turning the power off with the dial). This is a carryover from pure consumer camcorders - to save battery and reduce damage to tape and head wear from a camcorder left in pause mode for a long time.

Pro users complained, so the XL1s had an option to disable this feature so that only the tape transport (VCR portion) is turned off after 5 minutes, the camera head continues to run. link to above thread

You can puschase the NERO program that sometimes works with most disks. The program costs around 75 dollars. Or you can Simply go to a store that sells this model camera or one that uses the disc and simply ask to try out one of the models and finalize it there, I was trying to explain a few other options in our live session before you aborted it after waiting on me to look up the possible solutions for over half an hour. I do apologise that you are unhappy about the live chat support fees.

Why does the 4th thread keeps breaking on my serger? I've re-threadedi it a dozen times carefully following the diagram. What am I doing wrong?


Most likely it is either your tension on thay thread being too high, or the needle is too big for the project you are working. Lower that tension, use the next size up needle, and thay should fix it. Also, I STRONGLY suggest only using maxi-locks thread. They are more expensive than other serger threads, but they are always half-price at hancock... Any other thread I have tried using causes breakage, especially on the the lower looper (the 4th thread). Although, of you keep the tension low-below 3 or so, you should be ok. If these tips don't help, I would also check your cutting width, if your machine has an adjustable one. If it is leaving too much gabric to the right of the needles, out is conceivable that this is putting too much pressure on the threads. Let me know if this helps!

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the Camcorder is generating beeping sound. Based on the information you have provided, it seems that the issue is with the cassette drive mechanism.

I suggest that you reset the Camcorder and check the operation. To reset the Camcorder, please press the reset button shown in the below picture. Make sure that the camcorder is turned ON when pressing the reset button.

9_28_2011_8_14_50_am.jpg
If the issue persists, please perform a manual power reset by following the steps:

1. Turn off the camcorder. 2. Disconnect AC power adapter. 3. Remove the battery pack. 4. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds. 5. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position. 6. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack. 7. Turn on the camcorder.

If the issue persists after power resetting, the tape mechanism may have to be changed. However, it is not economic to fix this old Camcorder by replacing the tape mechanism. The best possible option is to get a playback device for your old tapes, play it and connect the A/V output to the A/V input of the Computer and use Windows Movie Maker to capture the recordings.

Alternately, you may purchase an 8mm to VHS adapter to playback those tapes in regular VCR. The below link shows the one you need.
Click here to view the adapter.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further clarifications.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


The hobbylocks all thread in much the same fashion.  There is a diagram for a four thread hobbylock on this website.  It would be better if you found a Pfaff dealer to show you as it is quite complicated.

 

http://www.pfaffmachines.co.uk/overlock/pfaff-hobbylock-2-overlocker.htm

 

Once you have it threaded, always cut the old threads at the spool and knot new ones on and pull through.  You will have to thread the needles as the knots will not pass through but it does save an awful lot of frustration when needing new colours on the spools.
