Question about Sanyo VPC-HD1010 Camcorder
Mine is an ordinary TV. I just bought a new 1010 from Japan ( DMX-HD1010 which is the type name specified there but is no doubt the same thing as the VPC-HD1010) and took good photos with it. Photo size has been set to 8M 3264X2448. These photos have been successfully displayed in my computer by method as instructed in a manual for the VPC-HD1000 version. Then i tried to display them on my TV(Toshiba CT-90034). Firstly i set the TV output: TV system as NTSC, the TV Style as 4:3 or 16:9. My camcorder was put on the Dock Station and the S/AV cable included in the package was used to connect to the TV imput , first by the yellow plug and then the S-terminal was tried alternatively. The camcorder was put in the play mode, but nothing was dislayed, neither in the record mode. i don't know what is wrong, since i think I have done every thing understood from the manual which, nevertheless i believe, didn't explain fully every thing in their instructions about the TV playback issues. Unfortunately i am unable to communicate with the Japanese maker on account of language and other problems. Would you gentlemen help me?

I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.
Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.
It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.
I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.
I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.
These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card.
3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card.
I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.
It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.

What was the speed of the second card? Scandisk are good cards. I think that the only important difference between cards is the speed.
>the process stopped 2h30 latter with the batt low level... (2 times),
You could try formatting with the camera in connected to the recharging shoe thing.

As I have been writing on other HD1/2 problems, sometimes it can be the card which is an issue. If the card is too slow or perhaps corrupted then the device can find it difficult to record.
This and other soft faults (that are reperable by turning the power on and off, changing or reinserting the card, removing the battery) are often indicated by a flashing red recording light.

Here is a screen shot of the menu you should see when you turn it on set it to normal mode and press the menu button, in english instead of the japanese you are seeing. I am hoping for your sake the menus are laid out the same way and only the words or characters are different.
Scroll down to the second wrench, select the second from the bottom, and press SET. English should be the first option at the top of the next screen. Highlight the first option and press SET.
I uploaded the manual of this camera to fixya, though it may not turn up for a day or two due to processing.
Look through my other posts for this camera and you will find the link to the cameras manual online elsewhere.
I hope that helps.

I agree that you're having a grounding problem concerning the built in mic. This could be caused by a cracked or broken solder joint on the circuit board, or ribbon connector, if used, but usually condenser mics are wired. You'll have to get in there and look around carefully for the problem, or workaround it by using the external mic.
One more thing to check is that the jack for the external mic is good, and it's solder connections, since in it's "open state", the contacts have to be short-circuited to the internal jack assembly.
Anyway, it's probably some physical problem, versus software, so keep investigating that route.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
