Hi, The problem is of drum assembly which normally called Head of the camera, it needs replacement. When horizontal or vertical lines appears it means the drum start malfunctioning and it needs replacement. For this please see the link click here. Thanks.
I assume this symptom appears when attempting to play a tape? If the picture is mostly snow, VCR may need video head cleaning. To do this, take the top cover off- You will note a cylindrical shiny aluminum drum- the actual heads are at the lower edge of this rotating drum.
Anyway, use a lint free cloth or special wipe moistened with rubbing alcohol, or product specifically made for such, carefully cleaning those heads as well as the drum itself. Occasionally, it may take 2 or 3 cleanings.
If the VCR has lots of hours, or abrasive head cleaners have been used, the head could be worn out. If so, toss the rig and purchase a new one. Head replacement is non-economical unless you have a high end machine.
Nope it's in the user menu and you have to have video going into the deck to read it on the monitor video out put. Head hours are the time the tape actually is in contact with the drum and the most accutate easy indication of drum ware. 3/4 Umatics don't eat heads as a rule. I think I only replaced 1 out of hundred for thousands and thousands decks. Brokers love head or durm hours tipically it's T2 on the menu.
C:31:40 is "FG fault when starting drum." In plain terms, the video head assembly is not producing a feedback signal that tells the control circuitry that the heads are spinning. Most probable cause is a bad drum assembly, but check to make sure the flex cable going to the drum is properly seated.
After installing the disc that came with the camera and the wizard, and some other programs, Picas, my computer does not find the camera . Says I need a CDR driver also. Can I find one to download free someplace? Thanks. Jack
