Re: 400x rca camcorder

Many camcorders brands used a surface mount capacitor that has a shelf life that lasts about 5-7 years or so. At the moment all those caps are going bad all through the cam. I would replace all or none. Good luck

Flip video instruction manual

Had the same problem. After trying everything, this worked:
From a command prompt, list directories. You might see one called ".Trashes\501" -- this is the directory where I found all the videos hiding that we tried every trick in the book to delete. If you see video files in this directory, simply delete them using the command prompt. Then exit the command line interface and check your camera. You should have a full 60 minutes of recording time restored.
Hope this works for you!

Problem with the tape transport mechanism; could be the rollers are not contacting the tape itself or it could be the springs in the transport. Sounds like an older model. Could clean the rollers with alcohol and swap and if you can open it a like observe what happens with the rollers when you place in playback. These are rather delicately adjusted machines. I would again 1) try cleaning as best you can and very light oil in moving joints/gears aferward. 2) check adjustment of springs when moving from stop to playback. Once you have that whipped the record mecanism may start working as well.

Watching my recordings on tv

there should be a pair of rca (red,white,yellow) wires that came with the camcorder.....if you cant find those try going to radioshack or a nearby electronics place and tell them what you need to do and they will get you what you need. now for watching them on your tv....if you tv has the rca inputs usually attached to front of tv you can plug it in right there and switch the tv over to another input like video 1,2,etc sometimes it will say "line" instead of video.

contact me if you have a questions

Can't read the date/time

There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.

Can't access all the menus...

Some RCA camcorders feature both Automatic and Manual recording modes. Some features on these camcorders are only available in Manual mode. Check to make sure the POWER switch is set to M, and not A, then try again. If you are unsure of the recording model features of your camcorder, refer to the owner's manual or the product catalog on the website. Look on the bottom of your camcorder to locate the model number.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?

Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.

I can't start recording.

# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
