Although my question might sound stupid, but did you charge the battery? The camera should be having a li-ion battery, which does not retain its charge for long(a week or so) which gives the battery a longer life.

If this is not the problem, could you explain the "ticks like a clock" in detail.

I could also be due to the tape getting jammed.

SOURCE: digital camcorder not charging

You need to test the volts out from the charger with a MultiMeter,
to check if there is power coming out. Your battery may also be faulty, as pointed out from some other expert. In any case the suspect nr.1 remains the adapter.
About the warrantee, you have 12 moths from Samsung , it should be valid even if you register the item right now. Here are details about Samsung 12 months fabrig warrantee in UK. Contact Samsung in your area to get more details.

Seems to have been a random fault. Now OK, but for how long? This camcorder has given nothing but trouble. Any further nonesense and it will be destroyed.

SOURCE: cant download driver for mini

The only way to get your Recorded videos from your canon MV901 is to get a cable called Firewire IEEE 1394 cable (buy it on Ebay, original cable coast 25 punds)however there is one big problem with that cable, most of computers dosent have the port for it, so first check your Pc if it has the right port for that cable before buying it!

There is another cable for Mv901 called USB, al of the Pc's have the port for it and it coast less that the Firewire IEEE 1394 cable, but again there is one issue, My pc cant find the correct driver for it and i cannot download a propper driver from anywhere... So i suggest the USb is kind of useless because you cant get a friver for it.

How can i download the contents of my mini tape onto the pc ?


you don't convert the files, you just downlod them via a firewire comnnection.

If you have a mini dv (cassette) camcorder....
Your dv camcorder needs a firewire connection (ieee 1394) in order to download video, your PC probably did not come with a firewire port, so you will have to buy one and install it, since most computers (except possibly brand new) don't come with a firewire port, your camcorder did not come with a firewire cord so you have to purchase a cord too. Your camcorder did come with a USB cord and that is used for downloading stills from your camcorder. Make sure your camera is in playback mode.
Open your editing program and choose the capture mode.

The fine print in your manual makes reference to firewire (ieee 1394) connection....


thanks.

Hello, I connected my DCR-HC54 (minidv) to computer using USB cable (come with camcorder). latest PMB is installed on windows 7 64-bit home premium. It gives following message: Cannot find the Handycam...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Sony call this "i.Link". Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. According to a list on the Sony site, your particular model is not one that can use USB for video transfers to computer.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other.

Sony have a help page for your camera, with tutorials and downloads, at THIS LINK

Need to know how to transfer video from digital camera to computer


To transfer camcorder video to computer, you need the following:- 1. Firewire cable (it looks similar to the USB cable, but has very high speed capability)
2. Appropriate software/application.
If a firewire cable did not come with your camcorder then see that purchase one right away, ‘cause you will always need it for this purpose. Then you should have a video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Ulead installed on your system. Adobe Premiere is recommended for its speed.
Once you have these in place, all you need do is connect the camcorder to your computer via firewire, have your video editing application/program open, and simply playback. You will observe that the playback on the camcorder is at the same time being shown on the computer screen within the application. While the mini DV tape is playing back click on capture on the video editing application you are doing the playback from, i.e. Adobe Premiere, Ulead etc.

Hi, my JVC mini DV Video Camera has fussy lines through any recordings and says the head needs cleaning. I've tried using the miniDV head cleaner tapes - but to no avail. Have you any...


It could be video head dust or the tape guide were out of alignment or it had been magnetized
In any case you should bring to JVC service center or JVC itself to repair this problem. They must connect your CAM into computer to check up and realignment DO NOT use the tape cleaning it won't help you sometime it cause more trouble such broken video head
Cheers

i am now facing the same problem but i found that i need to buy a mini DV cable to connect from the camera to the computer, the USB connection to the computer only allows you to transfer digital images from the camera that you have stored on the memory stick which you may not have inserted in the camera as the computer indicated to you
