Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

My video camera won't record or play videos.

My video camera is a Sumsung Mini DV SC-D67. Today I was charging it, and I was able to watch the videos I had previously recorded. Then the screen started going wacky and turned all grey. So I turned it off and on again, but it just showed the blue stop screen. I couldn't see any of what I had recorded. I also tried to record on a new tape. It told me that it was recording, but I'd go back, and nothing was there. What's my problem?

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????


If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.

Video is good but audio is bad..


It could be that the audio head may need to be adjusted. Sometimes they shift during shipping. Any camera store should be able to adjust it for you.

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.

Sc-d353 video transfer from Mini dv to computer


In order to transfer the taped video, the software that came with the camera, has to be installed. Once this is done, plug your camera into the computer, using the USB cord, and it should be recognized, and the software program should kick in and you can then transfer the files. Sometimes you will have to go to the actual drive itself and copy the images over to your folder of choice.
