Question about Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1000 Flash Media Camcorder

1 Answer

Can' get started

The directions seem simple, but when I press the record button, the camera appears to be recording for about 22 seconds and then I get a revolving hour glass symbol that isn't described anywhere in the manual. The camera then begins turning the record button on and off by itself and the hourglass comes and goes. I am not able to turn the camera off whether the hourglass is on the screen or not. This is my second camera. The same problem began with the first camera when I tried to format the 4G SDHC memory card. As soon as I pressed "yes" to format the camera left the set up mode by itself and then when I recorded the problem ocurred as described above. I tried a second new memory card with the same results. I am using the same card as I used in the first camera. The first time I turned this camera on it said the card was full. I followed the simple instructions for deleting files and it told me there were no files to delete. So I started recording with the results above. Why won't it work? Linda Lee

The hour glass symbol means you have ended a video and the camera is saving it. If it does it on it's own, it might mean you have jammed the recording button. Try tapping it a little or pulling it out a little to get it back to normal. If that doesn't work, your camera may be malfuntioning. If you can't get it to get unjammed, get a friend or family member to help you. Take an easy on it or the camera will break and you can ever use the recording button again.

How do I get to the video mode to record?


I'm guessing its an Exilim EX-Z75

To record movies:
In REC mode, press the <BS> button (bottom right on back of camera)
Use the directions navigators to select the little camera icon on the menu. Press enter to select.
Press shutter button to start recording (A little REC symbol should come up in the monitor)
Press shutter again to stop recording when finished.
Give it a couple of seconds to recover between recordings (i.e. write the files).

Here's the manual - Page 82.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Battery Installation
An adult must install batteries. Here’s how:
1. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the camera.
2. Remove the screw and Battery Compartment Cover .
3. Install two (2) AA alkaline batteries (not included) making sure the (+) and (-) ends face the
proper direction as indicated inside the battery compartment.
4. Replace the Battery Compartment Cover and tighten the screw.
5. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal.
Optional SD Card
Your Camera will hold approximately 10 minutes of video or 250-1000 still photos. Since portions
of the free memory space indicated in the Menu Mode are used to store the photo program, the
available space for storing photos etc., may be reduced. These numbers may also vary depending
upon the camera mode settings and the images being captured. To enlarge the memory, an
SD card (not included) may be purchased from your local camera store. To install the card an
adult must:
1. Make certain the camera is turned OFF.
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the Camera.
3. Slide the SD card (not included) into the slot until it clicks. (DO NOT force the SD card. If you
feel resistance, remove the card, make sure it is facing the correct direction, and try installing
again).
NOTE: SD card label must face toward the Camera Viewfinder and the edge of the card with the
copper contacts must be inserted first.
4. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal to keep
water from entering the card slot.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
• If the Watertight Cover is not completely sealed, water may enter the compartment causing
irreparable damage to the camera.
• USE CAMERA IN FRESH WATER ONLY. DO NOT USE IN SALT WATER.
• Using the Camera at a depth of more than 3 feet is not recommended.
TIP: Keep an eye on your battery level by checking the Battery Gauge in the top-right corner of
your screen. If the Gauge is red, new alkaline batteries need to be installed.

camera and the SD card. To remove the card, press in on it and it will pop out.

Could it be that the SD card is not fast enough? I think that SD 40x or SDHC class 6 is needed from my experience (I am not sure what it says in the manual). What speed/class is the card you are using? I get these sort of problems intermittently on my HD2 (the predcessor to the HD1000) when I use a slower card.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Can't turn on my camera!


Hi..

I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on hp.com:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=371583&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

NOTE
If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d

How do I pause while recording?


As far as I can tell, and yes the documentation is skimpy, when you press the 'record/play' button the video recording pauses. Make sure you press the video icon button, not the 'record/play' button to get it started again. If you press the 'record/play' button, it goes into a 'play back' mode.

Hope this helps...

Embed audio notes


Since the C-5500 has audio recording capability it is possible to record brief audio notes, which become an embedded part of the image file. Open the MODE MENU and select the CAMERA tab. Toggle right to enter the CAMERA sub-menu and toggle down until you have selected the microphone icon, using the OK/MENU button. Then toggle right, select ON and press the OK/MENU button twice. The sound recording function is now enabled. About .5 seconds after the shutter is released the 4 second recording period will begin recording. You will need to point the microphone on the front of the camera toward the sound source. You can also record and record over audio notes on photos already taken. In the PLAYBACK Mode open the MODE MENU, select the PLAY tab and then select START. Pressing the OK/MENU button will start the 4 second recording period.
