I pro can probably put it on a dvd for you, the problem is video tapes degrade over time. you may end up paying his labor with little to show for it. check first and see if they offer any type of refund if nothing is worth transfering

My vhs c adaptor wont play my casette. It plays for two seconds then the power to the vcr turns off. Yes I have tried several vcrs


This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette.
If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards.
No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality!
Well worth considering.

How to remove a tape from the adapter? (I just found it from years and years ago)


Use the manual wind beneath the adapter to wind off the VHS-C into the shell. If this is the motorised type also there is provision to wheel inthe tape manually. Once it goes back in the tape will eject up by itself with the wheel turned
If not remove the screws of the adapter-5-6 screws and open to release.

Doesn't seem to have a battery in the adapter - hard to insert tape then it does nothing


You must first put on the battery so that the mtor reurns back to the return mode so that the VHS-C can be placed . Once the door is shut after placing the cassette, the tape is wound up and it becomes just like a regular VHS tape. Now if this is not happening there is always a small gear on the back side with which you can manually wind to bring it up to the desired level. If not the motr is stuck or the pulley is running loose. You can open up and check inside , it is a simple mechansim with a switch to activate and return. Check the motor and gears. reset the drive by removing, check the battery voltage to the motor and your adapter will work. hope you check this out. Good day

How do i go about transfering vhs-c video from an


You have several options. But important one to understand is the limitations of a PIII computer like Armada e500. You may not have enough grunt to convert stuff, even after buying the necessary video capture devices which work on USB.

Also I am assuming you either have the jvc camcorder still available or atleast have a VHS-C to VHS adapter to play the tapes on a standard VHS tape player.

Unless you are having a lot tapes and need editing while converting, your better bet might be to go to one of the shops that convert these tapes on to DVD or a suitable flash drive which might work out cheaper and quicker.

The last time I did this thing (quality of my VHS-C tapes was bad) I bought a Samsung combined VHS Video / DVD recorder and used the dubbing feature to burn DVDs. Cost me about $150 a year ago. I was able to do some editing on the way as I was connected to the TV screen as well. Saved me the hassles of dealling with the PC type video capture devices and software.

How do I play a JVC EHG tape ?


There is a VHS cartridge for a JVC EHG 30 VHSC tape. It's called a Panasonic PV-P1 Adapter, and think you can find one on eBay. I've used one before, and from what I remember, it worked pretty well. The only bad thing about it is that you need an AA battery to operate it. Well, I hoped this helped, if you still need it.

Tape won't play


I am assuming that the problem is with just the one tape...

Two things spring to mind - Either the tape has snapped or the reel lock mechanism is jammed.

1) Check the tape. With the cassette the right way up, press the little button on the right-hand end just behind the tape flap, flip the tape flap up and check that there is actually some tape there. If not, it's snapped.

2) With the cassette upside-down and with the tape flap facing away from you, you should see a small hole in the centre of the cassette about 2cm from the edge nearest you. Press something gently in here to release the reel locks. Then give both reels a couple of small turns back and forth (a finger stuck in the reel holes is ideal for this!) Before you put the cassette back into your machine, make sure there isn't any slack on the tape by gently winding any excess back in by turning the reels, but don't wind it to tightly - the moment you feel resistance, stop.

Hope this helps,

Matt
