Power turns off after about 10 secs of watching the video


First guess is the camera has dirty heads. Suggestion is to run a head cleaner in your video camera. Regardless of the instructions on the head cleaner, I usually run the head-cleaner tape on "Play" for about 10 to 15 seconds, and then on "Record" another 10 to 15 seconds. Wait for 10 minutes before loading your playback tape. Try playing your tape again.

Also, check to be sure the tape is loaded properly and that the hatch closes securely and properly. A hastily loaded tape or an ill-fitting closure could cause the play function to stop.

If this does not solve the issue, it may be something in the play switch or in the playback mechanism that requires repair services. If the problem continues, I would recommend calling the Panasonic Company and speak with Tech support or Video Camera Repair. They may be able to tell you and estimate of what it would cost for the repair.

Video camera will not playback tape smoothly - jumps along


Please get into town, and buy the 8mm Camera cleaning tape from W.H. Smiths, Currys, Comet, Maplins, put that in your camera on record mode for 20 seconds and then remove it, and carry on filming, it is just dirty heads you have got, take care.

Sony DCR-TRV510 Playback Blank or Choppy


I recently had similar problem. Sony Phone tech support was very helpful. The answers were strange. You need to make sure the cameral is turned off, unpluged and take the battery out for at least 5 minutes. (something to do with reseting firmware). That sort of worked when coupled with there last comment which was to RECORD about 15 seconds and play it back. Mine was instantly healed!

8mm Samsung camcorder: choppy playback


This seems like a tape playback problem. Can you look at the output of the tape in the camera directly into a monitor? And checking the tapes on another machine would also be good.

The fast movement breakup can be something in the playback circuitry of the camera. It may not show up in the viewfinder. Also yo umay try repacking the tape. Fast forward it to the end and rewind it all the way.

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear


I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Sony TRV460 D8-->Hi8 switching


I too was having a problem playing back my 8mm in my TRV460. The audio and video was both very glitchy. I tried what dyz66 said and rewound to the start of the tape,and then recorded about 10 seconds of meaninless video. After that the whole tape played nice and clear. Thanks for the idea. I believe from here on out I'm going to buy some new tapes to try and avoid this.

Playback is choppy


I had this problem very recently. In fact I borrowed camcorders from my friends too and after short periods, they too started having the same problem. Essentially, it looks like there is some choppiness every second or so - like there is noise in the audio and video. After a lot of looking around, I finally found a suggestion posted that ACTUALLY WORKED on all 3 camcorders:

I placed an empty tape in the camcorder and recorded a few seconds into it. Then I removed that tape and tried to play the previous tapes that were showing the choppiness. No problems any more. Everything works fine.

What I still do not understand is why 3 camcorders (all DCR-TRV103s) all showed the same problem (with different tapes by the way). And since I still have lots of tapes to copy, I need to know why this problem is happening so I can minimize its occurrence while I complete the copying process.

People have suggested that my tapes are old and may be offering resistance to the camcorder. So I have ordered a rewinder to spin the tapes a bit before trying again. The two possibilities suggested around this was (1) some mechanical switching took place which got reset when recording; and (2) something got corrupted in the software that manages the playback buffer and that software was rebooted when it went to recording mode.

So while this will hopefully answer your question, I'm also looking for explanations for why this happened to me on 3 different camcorders.

Sony dcr-hc35e


first try a cleaning tape and this will not solve the problem have a service dealer check the unit.ru the cleaning tape once and try to playback a good old recording, if it does not work try to run the tape twice before testing . do not run the tape too many times as you may damage the video heads.one cleaning session should not be longer than 10-15 seconds. most of the new cams are stopping the cleaning tape playback after 10-15 secs.

Try to playback the tape and the screen is all blue


your heads motor ( drum ) cable may have have come loose or is dirty - since the cleaning tape made some difference the heads were dirty or almost worn out ( cleaner tape is abrasive ) so now there isn ' t enough signal ; if your date and time display worked only in play ? ( still works for camera record video ) your guides were out of alignment - and the cleaning tape took your guides even further out of alignment ( alignment here starts at $ 50 + shipping )
