Question about Panasonic TC-30 VHS-C Tape

1 Answer

I need help, Please!!!!!

I think I bought a faulty tape! The others in the package were fine, but not this one! I taped my daughter's FIRST BIRTHDAY party, of all things, and when we tried to watch it, we realized that something was wrong with the tape! We thought it needed tracking, but that didn't help. The picture is as good as it's going to get without professional help! We can hear it, and see it. It's not jumping much, if any, it just looks like it needs tracking....bad. Please tell me someone can help me! It wasn't caused by our camera, because the other tape that we recorded the same day is fine, and both tapes were opened at the party and put immediately into the camera. Thank you!

The only thing I can suggest is look at the tape( open the tape door). Is there a line or crease on the tape?? yes ?? not a thing can be done unless you wanna send the tape out to a studio and have them ride the tape path untill the tape plays through., if it dosent look creased then Sorry to say that the tape path post are probably loose in the tape path section of the camcorder. Have it looked at before it gets worse. Hope its the first thing I said. Good luck

Pixelation and sound drop out


This case sounds like really dirty picture and sound heads in camera and tape kept sticking so exposure was on each part of tape too long.
Keep camera heads shiny and clean by buying camera tape cleaner.

My Camcorder Breaks the tapes


Your camcorder needs to be cleaned and or serviced ASAP. Please do not use any more tapes, as you may have a stuck roller head or sticky contact surfaces that can "catch" the tapes intermittently.

You should be able to have it serviced very cheaply at a camera store, but I would not use it any further for danger of potentially ruining the camera.

Camera Records w/wrong exposure-- pink & green overexposed effect


It could be that the CCD unit is going bad.  You should take into a camera shop to get a professional look at it.  Usually that type of taping is caused from a bad CCD.

Malfunctioning tape recorder or bad tape?


How old are the tapes? Unless the tape recorder doesn't shut off when it gets to the end of the tape, then I think the tape recorder is fine and it is probably just the tape.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

It's not tracking -- it's dirty heads -- you can purchase an 8mm head cleaning cassette and use it to cure these problems. Tapes recorded with the dirty heads may still have issues afterwards.

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.

Use a head cleaner tape (available on eBay most likely) and clean the recording heads.

NOT TAKING TAPE


I have one doing the same thing. I called Cannon and the told me I would have to send it in for service. Now after reading that about 10 other folks having the same issue, I think Cannon has some issue with the ZR100. Of course mine is out of warranty. Everyone should call Cannon and complain.
