Question about Samsung VP-D361 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have only used my camera once or twice and put it away because i always said i would fix it later. Can this be fixed or should i get a new camera?

I had the same problem. The batteries do not last. When the battery becomes weak it can not run the tape so it tells you to eject it.
Buy a new bigger battery. I bought a 160 for ~$30.

sir if your camcorder is new then it has a warranty. we should send it first for their service because they have a spare parts for replacement and info. if your going to fix it by yourself then the warranty of that will be void. by the way the place for the service center for camcorder samsung in the philippines is in makati i think. i got a problem with my samsung just like your model and they told me that it is located at makati. hope that helps!

I believe your problem is in the drum motor assembly part No is AD97-10579A. Samsung they know that problem it require a Technician to replace this part because you must adjust electronic and sometime mechnism as well. Depend which country you are it might cover under warranty even your CAM is out of warranty just check with Samsung in your area

I'd strongly suggest getting a cleaning tape recommended by the manufacturer or taking it to be professionally cleaned. It's very easy to cause expensive damage to the tiny parts.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
