Question about Toshiba GSC-R30 Camcorder

1 Answer

Recording session stops itself

I'm trying to tripod-record a continuous several minutes without standing at the camera, but the recording automatically stops after about a minute. It's presently mounted in a car, and I'm wondering if it's the increased vibration at speed that's causing the recording to consistently stop prematurely without any other input. Is there an auto recording shut off point that can be extended? Or if it's a vibration thing, any solution (obviously aside from adding a damper)?

Put your camcorder on a stale support like a tripod, point it at your TV screen, and press the START/STOP button to start recording.
Seriously, the DCR-SR68 is a video camera, not a video recorder. It can record video through the lens and then play them back, either on its own screen, a computer, or a TV. It cannot record from an external video source.

I recorded a video in my sony handycam dvd and its haf it is showing a msg that do u want to make it recordable.i want to keep the previously recorded video and continue recording.what do i do...

The possibility of this varies from handycam to handycam but it is most likely related to the type of disk you are using.some disks can only record one session. it is important to read the instructions that came with the disk.generally disks marked 'DVD-R' can only record one session whereas disks marked DVD-RW can record several sessions and can even be erased and recorded on again as new.

My JVC Everio GZ-MG135aa fell off of it's tripod stand and now the lcd is white on the right half and has bright lines on the other half (this is all it will show) If I hit record it still records and...

LCD panel needs replacing - this is the classic case of detached screen ribbon, which unfortunately is not repairable without silicon printing equipment which costs thousands. Also check playback on another device (ie streamed through your PC) to make sure the heads haven't become misaligned.

Images not recording

I have a sony 14E and suddenly it stopped playing and recording. With vertical lines on the screen I knew to clean the heads. No effect on the recording/playing malfunction.

However I persevered and it seems to have worked in it is now recording and playing back. The steps I suggest, with PERSEVERANCE, are :
1. Clean the heads (I did it 3 times in all, with about 1 hour between each session);
2. Leave the camera open (tape section) for about 2 hours and put the camera (with or without tape) in a warm place. (I also had condensation messages).
3. Once it is warm put in a recorded tape and attempt to view it. At first I had "dirty" vertical lines for a few seconds but it cleared and played normally.
4. If Step 3 still does not work repeat 1 and 2. As I said PERSEVERE.
If Step 3 works then try to record. It should work hopefully. If not, repeat 1 and 2 (shortening the "Warm Up" time).
Good luck. I hope mine continues to work OK now. It is to do with dirty heads and coldness I think.

Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD position. 3. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 4.

Press the START/STOP button to stop the recording. Notes: * Moving images that you recorded are saved in *.asf file format on the Memory Card. * The moving picture images on a Memory Card are smaller size and lower definition than those on a Tape. * The sound is recorded in mono. * The following functions cannot be operated in M.REC Mode. - DIS (Digital Image Stabilizer), Digital Zoom, Fade, Program AE, Digital Special Effect, Slow Shutter. * Don't insert or eject a tape during Memory card recording as it may record noise. * Don't eject the Memory Card during recording as it may break the data on the Memory Card or the Memory Card itself.
