Question about Panasonic NV-DS29B Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Won't record or play anymore

Hi, My camcorder hadn't been used for a while, but was stored in my PC desk. When I come to use it, it recorded for a short while and then chewed up the tape. I bought a new tape and recorded a few seconds of film, but the taped got chewed again. After fixing the tape and re-inserting it, the power light continuously flashes in two's and I am unable to use the record or play functions. Any idea what's happened? Thanks. Neil.

You need keep the power plugged in and allow the internal battery to recharge as it may have discharged due to lack of use.
Alternativley the internal battery may need replacing by a qualified engineer. You should know if this is the problem as it usually denoted by a red flashing battery with a line striking through it.

We want softwear to capturing the vedio from sony700x handycam to my laptop


Hi,

By using a video camera, you can capture life's important events in all its movement, color and sound. Sony's entry into this recording arena is with the Handycam series, which started with tape storage before progressing to hard disk and Mini DV formats. One hallmark of this device is the ability to quickly transfer recordings from camera to PC using the PC operating system and without the need of an external capture program. Instructions
  1. Turn off the camcorder before connecting it to the PC using the included USB.
  2. Turn on the camcorder and open the flip-out screen. The USB Select screen appears. Tap Computer on the screen.
  3. Double-click the My Computer icon on your PC desktop. The My Computer window opens to reveal the camcorder as a new storage device. If the camcorder is not appearing as an icon, try turning it on and off and selecting Computer on the flip-out screen once more.
  4. Double-click the Camcorder icon to open it. A list of stored videos appears. Click to select the video that you want to transfer.
  5. Press the Ctrl and C keys to copy the video.
  6. Use My Computer on your PC to browse to the folder in which you want to store the copy. (If needed, create a new folder.) Double-click the folder to open it.
  7. Press the Ctrl and V keys to paste the copied video into the folder. If needed, right-click the video and choose Rename to give the video a more meaningful name.

DVD-R wont play :(


Break out the manual for the camera, there is probably a "finish" or finalize procedure that needs to be run before the disk can be read by anything else. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate this post.

Vertical lines while recording Canon zr100 camcorder


I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.

Lines in replay


Digital video camcorder are recording signals in very thin line (as thin as 1/8 of a hair.) Therefore, following symptoms may appear if video heads become dirty even a little. If such symptoms appear, clean the video heads with a commercially available dry cleaning cassette. If the symptoms reappear shortly after cleaning, the video cassette may be defective. Stop using the cassette. Video heads may become dirty under the following conditions: (1) When using the camcorder in humid or hot places. (2) When using cassette with damaged or dirty tape. (3) When using the camcorder in dusty places. (4) When using the video heads without cleaning them for a long time. Note: Before you make important recording, clean the video heads and make a test recording first. We also recommend cleaning the video heads after use before storing the camcorder.
