Question about Samsung SC-D67 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

More details on mini DV distortion problem

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! ;)

Distorted sound on playback, samsung mini dv camcorder.


Try a DV tape cleaner first. If that doesn't work, see what it would take to get the audio heads realigned. Any camera store can do that for you.

Mini DV tapes getting distorted on playback


It sounds to me that the damage was created prior to you attempting to capture the video.
There are several ways to help prevent these issues.As a rule I would suggest only to use miniDV cassettes to record only once, as they are prone to errors such as you describe.  Also, keep the tape heads clean and inline. tape heads have a limited mileage and need to be replaced after a while.
We all become victim to the mosaic problems you describe, and it can be repaired on the computer, although it is a painstaking manual process. 
If you have footage that is damaged in this way and you really feel you need it repaired, please contact me, I will be happy to offer my services.

Marching band and live band concerts come out distorted


I'm sorry to say that there isn't a way to make bad audio good. You can sometimes make it a little better but it sounds like yours is distorted beyond help.

Your built-in microphone automatically senses how hard to "listen". Generally, being closer is better but in your case the signal was so loud that your audio sensors "clipped" the sound to protect your circuits. That means there is no signal in those gaps that could even be corrected.

The best you can do is see if someone else had a successful recording.

Image distortion/mosaic pattern (sometimes) at start of tape


This is a proper maintenance job. I know exactly what you are talking about and your comment about pausing and then it works sometimes confirms in my mind at least, that this is an issue with the mechanism for turning over. It happens through general use, but can be prevented by conservative use of the pause button when playing back. In my experience, the pause button is used rather than switching off, when logging....dont know if this is true on your end but I hope it helps in some way.

Samsung VP-D10 Mini DV Digital Camcorder


hi, I wish you wouldve given us more details regarding the kind of distortion you get on the LCD screen. if objects kinda fuzz out, it can be related to worn headdrum, i.e. worn heads. The heads are tuned with the input-capacitance of the PB-amplifier on the white-frequency of the recorded RF(is in FM with high frequencies on white) . The wear of the heads will decrease their inductance so the tuned frequency is going up.The video-amplifier and demodulator circuits can`t compensate it. Another reason can be a misaligned FM modulator( frequencies for black and white are not set correctly). Finally the AVC of the camera itself can be faulty. The guiding posts will never cause such problem but their setscrews tends to get loose. Tighten them carefully. Good luck
