Samsung scl860 won't play old tapes?

I think its the CCD wire I've been reading about. I've heard that people with this problem have been getting them fixed for free because of a recall perhaps? Don't know where to send it to get this done, even if I have to pay for it. Mabye Wolf camera or something?

SOURCE: not reading Hi8 tapes

Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

My best solution, is to pull all power sources form the camera for 24 hours. If this does not work, then take the small screws surrounding the Tape housing, in order to try and get the tape out. Best of luck dude ;)

Sorry it took me so long to reply, check their web sites customer help first. All I know is that their ( I am talking about the camera manufactures like Sony, JVC, Samsung, etc.) ccd imager are made by only one company ( asahi glass) and this company recalled all those 2002~2005 released ccd and replaced it with a stronger design, I don't know if they were still doing it at present. Sorry, many clients informed me that they were not doing it now.. I don't think it's reasonable, those company should stop selling those rejects even for a cheaper price!!! They should replace them already right before they sell it.

I have the same problem with my zr200, its driving me nuts!!!
Everything looks and seems fine. Without a tape it works perfectly. With a tape it wont retract and it says to remove the tape. It just started out of the blue, no warning.

SOURCE: Sony Handycam CCD-F77 won't power up

Sony F77's are known for bad power supply circuit boards. I have one that powers up enough to eject or insert a tape but will do nothing else. Recently I took it to a repair shop. Paid $30 to have it diagnosed but elected not to pay the extra $164-$215 to have the board rebuilt.

It is difficult to find people who will even diagnose these old camcorders, but the repairman said the shops that rebuild the boards get 10-15 a week because people really like the high quality of this particular model. I paid over $1500 for mine in 1983 or so and may yet decide to have it rebuilt.

The repair shop I took mine to is Westronix in Salem, Oregon.

Samsung vp d20 camcorder


MiniDV cameras have two video heads on the rotating drum, which read and write the picture in broad horizontal bands. When one head is not working, normally because it is clogged by dust/dirt/tape residue, you see broad bands of noise across the image occupying exactly half the total image area.......

My camcorder can play old tapes but won't record


Hi,
Your camcorder Sony DCR-HC20E has bad ccd imager problem and that part will be replaced to have live view to record on tape.
I can provide you ccd imager part number info if you want to repair it by yourself.
CCD Imager replacement in this camcorder requires expertise and fair skills of soldering parts in PCB.
