Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Don't know if this was a problem with my tape or if the camera is did the damage.. what do you think.. This seems to happen 2 out of 8 projects.. I have about 45 min of footage.. all of the footage is good from that day except for one tape.. after about 30 min of footage on the tape it pixalates heavly .. and the audio drops in and out... I looked at the acutal tape and it looks like the tape has a fold line in it ?? I will capture again .. some of the footage looks better some is worse.. what do you think could cause this on this cam... Also .. I black all of my tapes on a JVC camcorder never on the VX2100 .. I never reuse tapes.. I also capture with a JVC camcorder also .. I would say out of 20 tapes .. I have had 2 do this .. any sugguestions .. the VX2100 is about 3 years old
Try to clean your heads with a video heads cleaning cassettefor ten seconds and try to read your tape.
If it doen't help, your footage is corrupt.
