Question about Samsung SC-D67 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I'm not familiar with this site, you said to contact you but I don't know how so I hope this is the way. I don't believe it is a problem with a previous record because I was able to watch the older tapes in the past. I have only viewed each of them maybe 2 times total (once at first and a second to catalog what was on it), and as I said, the damage started occuring DURING the capture process and if I played the video while disconnected it was fine after that point. But, a few days later I tried a whole different tape and it started garbling right away. I don't want to play anymore of my old tapes that I am positive worked fine before for fear of ruining them. You said my tape heads were wearing out maybe? I can believe that, this camcorder is many years old. How do I go about replacing them? Also, you offered your services if this does not resolve things, what would be the cost. I noticed you are in the UK and I am in the US so I am not sure how that would work out. Thanks.
It sounds to me that your tape heads are possibly dirty beyond the scope of a head cleaner. ie, grease or large particles/crumbs. This will explain the apparent spread of destruction.
I can provide you with a facility to upload your video to a private server. I can download it from there, and deal with it. I charge $100 per 5 mins of damaged footage. It may sound a lot but it is a frame by frame restoration. no fix, no fee. My usual field is the restoration of 35mm archive for digital/DVD remastering. But this is my hobby as much as my carreer, so I am always happy to help the little people! ;)
