    the problem you are having is caused by the focus circuit not being aligned properly. It could be as simple as performing a back focus adjustment on the lens. I am not familiar with this camcorder, does it have user changeable lenses?

Hi.
If the camera is in autofocus, it might be hunting focus. This usually happens when you zoom out. You can avoid this by putting your camera in manual focus while zooming out.
Hope this helps!

I video remote control planes and I am finding that the video is blurry. I have altered a few things but it still seems to be bad quality when I play back. I took auto focus off but that just made it...


Well you may be on digital zoom mode, this simply will not be clear with fast moving takes, keep to the Opt zoom mode and with on tripod this will put focus better, keep camera still, move and it will blur.

Blurred image


This sounds like CCD sensor problem ( especially if the picture is "noisy" ). Canon and Sony fixes this particular problem free of charge since the CCD device installed in your camera should last + - 15 years if it is properly manufactured. Contact your agent and find out what their policy is.

JVC camcorder with blurred images


It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan

Picture still blurred on record mode


Your problem sounds like a focus problem. Could be that it's on manual focus and you're hitting the sweet spot only in full zoom? From the manual: 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button.  M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus.  Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again. Hope it works out, let us know!

Playback quality problem


A couple of things could be causing the problem. When recording, your movements with the camera could have been too quick or jerky. Try putting the camera on a flat surface or on the tripod and record for 30 seconds. If the playback picture is still bad, then it's possible that the video heads are dirty or worn out. Consult your nearest RCA authorized service center for head cleaning or replacement.
