RCA VHS CAMCORDER

I have a RCA #540 camcorder that needs repair, experts tell me it will cost about $250 to repair it but it's not worth it. I have not found a digital that has the zoom or the clearity of this camcorder. I have owned several and looked at several more in the $250-$500 price range. Why is the old technology better and can I find a digital as good

Let us attack this from a different perspective. What is the problem with the camcorder? Typical labor rates will be in the $150 range, so you are looking at that much for the repair without parts. Please update this with a problem description and I'll try to provide you with what needs to be done to fix it.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a jvc Compaq vhs camcorder that is about 12 years old. it turns on but will not play the cassettes so it needs repairing. can anyone help or recommend a repairer?


My suggestion would be to use a VHS player and convert your existing tapes to disc through your computer and then buy a new camcorder that uses SD cards, They are dirt cheap and it would probably be cheaper than the cost of repair.

How do I connect my panasonic vhs 188 camcorder to a dvd recorder?


Hi,

On these old models of VHS camcorder, I recall they have either RCA outputs, or BNC connectors which will require a BNC adaptor (to convert to RCA).

Using a 3RCA lead, connect the camcorder to the video (and audio) inputs of your DVD recorder.

The camera will not record any more and i can't locate a place in ontario canada that can repair it since rca is not doing repairs.


It's not what you want to hear, but this camera is not worth fixing. You can get a much better HD digital one now for less money than this one cost, and maybe less than it would cost to repair. Let it go.

I video taped a wedding and am trying to copy from my camcorder "VHSC" to VHS RECORDER - PROBLEM IS I AM GETTING AUDIO BUT NO VIDEO when i try to replay from vhs tape on VCR


I can only believe that you did not connect everything (the yellow video cable) correctly.

Tape to tape copies are normal and typical. Please consider retrying - and just do a few minutes of test video to confirm that it is working.

If you were doing a digital translation, I could understand a problem - but VHS to VHS should be a straight copy.....
Let us know how the test works. (BTW, I had a bad quality video cable - and had to replace it with another - which worked (and everything would display on my TV but would not copy onto another tape. My expert said that a copy protection thing in the record mode of the VHS recorder was the issue - ONLY a strong signal will be copied.

RCA CC617


probably the lcd screen is broken (the one that you can see through the veiw finder) if this is the case it is not reasonably fixable. Otherwise it may be a connection that is broken and it is not getting any feed. If you give it a little tap and it comes to life breifly, this is probably the case. You can take it to a small electronics repair shop and they will let you know if its worth fixing or just using as is.
