SCL860 Hi8 Samsung Camcorder wont turn on or charge

This camera is about 4 years old but in like-new condition and has been very well taken care of. Has not been used for about 2 years though. It will not turn on, even when connected to plugged in adaptor. It will not even indicate a charge when plugged in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

I don't know if this will help at all but I have had to push the adapter into the camera further than my initial try before it would start charging. Check to see if you can push it in any further.

Fast tape playback for samsung vp-l770 can't watch at normal speed on camcorder?


Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD

Problems with playing cassettes recorded on a hi8 camera


DCR TRV140E is a Digital8 camera
CCD TRV87E is a Hi8 camera,

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

Cant record


Hello, your camcorder is from 1998 or 1999. Yes it is fixable. Please ask for the price estimate from the technician with best references. If you need more info please advice.

Tape compatibility question.


Yes. Hi8 camcorders are manufactured to work with 8mm or Hi8 tapes. The difference is the quality of the tape. 8mm tapes will provide about 270 lines of resolution where a Hi8 tape will provide up to 400. For better quality recordings, you'll want to use Hi8 tapes.
