Question about Video Cameras

Open Question

Sony ccd-fx310 It will not take a tape, place a tape in the holder, push the cover close but the tape won't go down, when the tape in taken out and the cover pushed close the whole unit closes, problem? My camcorder has been in its case for several years. Battery off of recorder, but tape has been in it for the past year or two or three or four (oops). I'm going on vacation soon and now it won't accept a tape when inserted. It makes a funny noise and then signals for me to take the tape out. I bought it 2nd hand and didn't get an owner's manual. Maybe it needs cleaned or oiled or whatever. In the "play" mode, it won't FF or RW (fast forward, rewind) or anything. Anybody with suggestions? SOMETIMES it will let me view some video thru the viewfinder when IT wants to. Exact same issue. It did not help to have a charged battery and it did not help to change the lithium battery. I am not shocked by either of those, because the same issue occurred with the DC connected. There is nothing blocking the descent of the enclosure itself, but with the tape in it, it will not close. I tried more than one tape too. THEN finally after opening and closing it about 50 times, it did stay closed with the tape inside, but then failed to respond to the commands to play, fast forward or reverse the tape. Have not used it for years either. There is a very low level noise that occurs as it "tries" to lower the tape. It sounds as if the mechanism is trying to turn the tape but cannot and when that happens, it ejects the tape. The manual indicates that if there is condensation in the unit due to exposure to cold then to warm air (it says to put it in a bag before moving it from cold to warm and allowing it to warm up for an hour prior to use; eg if you are in winter weather and bring it inside, it should be in a plastic bag!) It says nothing will function in the presence of condensation except the ejection mechanism, which fits the symptoms everyone has described. I am currently "airing out the videocam in dry warm air with the door open (face down so less dust can descend into the chamber) to see if that helps. If the mechanism has been corroded by the moisture, it may not be reparable. I'll let you know if this works.

Definitely sounds like a dirty video head or a bad video head. You are headed in the right direction with the cleaning tape but you may not be able to get it thoroughly with the cleaning tape. You can try a q-tip dipped in alcohol and try to cleaned the video heads on the drum assembly yourself, just kinda soak the heads with the alcohol and gentle scrub the heads if the heads are clogged this may help. If it doesnt then you may need a drum assy. I have researched it for you and the part number is "A7048988A" from partstore.com. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: what does a lithium battery do for a sony

That battery is only for the Time and Date, meaning that if the battery is dead or missing you will have to reset the date and time every time you record. When you turn off the camera the Time and Date go back to Zero!, replacing the battery will keep the time and date up to date.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE INK CARTRIDGES IN MY CANON PIXMA MP160


Hi

Here's how to replace ink cartridge.

Make sure the printer is turn on. Place your fingers under the LED control panel and lift the scanning unit. The cartridges inside the printer will automatically slide to the left, for easy access. Remove the empty cartridge by pushing the front of the cartridge downward. It will snap out of its cradle. Pull out the cartridge and replace the new ink cartridge. Insert the new cartridge. With the front of the cartridge tilted down, push the back into the cradle. Lift the front upward, and the cartridge will snap into place. Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help. Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Turn on the Printer and Open the top cover of the Lexmark 2600 by lifting the cover upward. you will find all cartridges down there.

Remove the black ink cartridge from it's packaging. Remove the tape from the black ink cartridge first and place the cartridge into the left ink cartridge holder. Press the cartridge down into until you hear it lock into place. Close the ink cartridge holder lid by pressing it down firmly. This secures the ink cartridge in place.


Remove the colored ink cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape from the cartridge. Place the cartridge into the right cartridge holder and press down until it clicks into place. Push down the cartridge holder lid.
