Question about RCA CC4352 Camcorder

1 Answer

I can't play old mini dv tapes on any other camcorder.

I had a Canon MV20 (since sold it) and recorded honey moon, new born baby etc, sold the Canon and bought a Sony DCR-HC45. When I play the tapes on the Sony the volume is distorted if any at all and the picture pixelates, not watchable. I have been told the heads on the Canon where probaly out of alighnment. Jessops transfered some of the tapes to dvd but they came back no better. Is there anyone out there with Hi tec editing equipment or the answer that can make my xmas? Cheers Spence.

    I have the same problem - my Canon MV20 broke (a tape got jammed) and I have since bought a Sony replacement - when I try to playback my Canon recorded tapes the sound is distorted and the pictures break up every few seconds.

    I suspect that the Canon recordings are proprietry ? I am going to try the tapes in another camera - anybody any suggestions or should i try a more receent Canon

DCR-HC26 will record but will not play

There are two solutions, one, buy a mini dv tape player. They are kind of expensive, but you will be able to get your information off your tapes. Second, buy a used, working mini dv camcorder on ebay and use it to get your information off your tapes. A five year old camcorder is not work fixing.

I have a Samsung camcorder and when I play mini dv tape recordings from Canon camera I recorded on , the sound is distorted

If the tape plays correctly in the Canon camcorder, here are a couple of possible reasons for the issues you are having:

1. the Samsung camcorder has a cleaning issue - try running a dry head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds and see if that helps.

2. The alignment is off between the two different camcorders. Nothing you personally can do about that, but a repair center would be able to correctly align the tape path on both camcorders.

Do the tapes that you record on the Samsung have issues when you play them back on the Samsung? If so, you have a problem with that camcorder (may be cleaning, but could be a mechanism problem) Hope this has helped you.

Pink lines when i play back my tapes on my canon zr500

Hopefull your not going through the tv and then to your dvd recorder
transfer should go straight from your camera to the dvd recorder.
you may also want to but a head cleaner for a mini dv camcorder,run it twice and try recoding again.If that doesnt work,you may have a problem with the heads inside of the camera.If thats the case,it would need to go to canon or an authorized service center.

Colored, pixilated bars appear during playback

It is very common when the magnetic heads got dirty. Buy a Mini DV cleaning tape, follow the instruction clean the heads by playing the cleaning tape for a while. Record NEW video and playback to test.
Please know if you play the old video recorded buy the dirty heads, you may not get clear picture, because here is not correct data recorded on the tape.
