Hi, a few months back my comp had a restore done on it which wiped out all my stuff. I dont know how I go about getting the comp to recognise my camcorder. Would I have had a disc to install first? and if so can I get a replacement? Sorry to sound so stupid about this and would really like some help on this problem. I have a few tapes that i would like to put onto disc if this is possible. Thanks for your help I hope . Regards Piglet

Sounds like the edge of the tape has been damaged. The edge of the tape has the speed encoded so the playback will know what speed to play the tape. Look at the edge of the tape for wrinkles. If present, throw away the tape so you won't use it for an important recording.
hi,wath i think that is the tape pathern on the camera is different from one to the other, and as
to be adjust and clean the head system,because the traking pulse as to be match for both camera
you will need to see a camera tech because it as to be made with an oscilloscope.
hope that will help you, thats all i can do from here
when the light flashes it means that there is an error definetly.
turn the menu button on off position first and remove the battery.
reinsert battery and turn on recording mode.
Try to remove the tape and reinsert it and see if the operating light is clear.
let me know if the functionality is restored.
I'm not familiar with your particular model, but many cameras of this type have a "quick review" function that allows you to see what was recorded for the last few seconds to verify that all is well. This is critical in broadcast situations where you only get one shot to get the video. This is a quick way to verify that all is working without having a blank gap in the recording caused by an inaccurate rew/play/stop/rec sequence.
It could be that.. you generally want a timebase corrector to properly record from analog tape to some other medium. But maybe not. Most tape-based devices also include a tension sensor, to detect the end-of-tape. If you're using tapes that are too old, cheap, etc. it could be that you're seeing this triggered.
I recommend trying the same VHS recording with a good quality, fresh tape. If it's still kicking off, you at least know it's due to the camcorder having issues with sync or something on the tape. If it works, blame the old tapes.
It's probably camcorder dependent, but I have done tape restorations using Digital8 and DV equipment, and have never known a camcorder to cut itself off due to dropouts or other problems on the tape -- mine just play through. So I think it's at least possible that it's just the tape.
I think the Switch Block is defective. May be you need a service manual as well.
