MY SONY CAMERA GOT WET ITS NOT CAPTURING PICTURES OR NOT RECORDING VIDEOS. EVERY THING IS WORKING BUT THE SCREEN IS NOT DISPLAYING WHAT DO I DO??????


sir,
if your camera or any electronics appliances happened to enter water or moisture, you must remove the power source(battery)at the immediate, hence the water is a conductor of electric power it will spoil the entire circuits of it. in this case there is very rare possibility to cure. any how please open your camera and take out the LCD display, there may be corrosion on the clipping connectors, try to clean all the connectors, wash the total circuit board with cleaning liquid, re connect all then power on.

Our cameras were unplugged and then reinstalled (only partially uninstalled) and now we cannot get them to "reboot" We are getting an error of "video loss" I can not figure out how reboot the cameras so...


If your monitor is showing 'video loss' on each of the eight camera windows then the problem lies between the camera connections on the back of the Recorder and each camera. Without knowing what partially uninstalled means the troubleshoot process would be:
1. Use a voltmeter and check the camera power supply(s) line adapter where it splits to feed the cameras for full voltage- your unit should show 12Volts DC. Lack of voltage here and the cameras will not have power and cause 'no video' to the recorder.

2. Check the recorder menu to make sure that all camera inputs are turned on and are set to record. 'Covert' or hidden screens may not be viewed on a monitor but might show 'loss of video'.

3. It's highly unlikely that all cameras would fail at the same time so 1) if there is power and good video cable connections at the cameras, the next check would be to : 2) check each video connection into the back of the recorder and make sure that they are on camera "input", and not on a 'loop out' terminal by mistake.

If the above checks do not determine the fault, you would have to somehow feed a known good video signal into one of the camera inputs on the recorder and then troubleshoot the recorder.

If you repost what you have confirmed working we can re-assess.

How to connect Hitachi camcoder with laptop


Connecting to PC via PC Connection Cable
Use the provided PC connection cable to connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC as shown in the last.

Note:
• No data can be written to the HDD, disc or SD memory card in this DVD video camera/recorder when it is connected to PC.
• The PC connection cable does not supply power to the DVD video camera/recorder: Use the AC adapter/charger
to power the DVD video camera/recorder.
• Before connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, disconnect any cables or camera accessories (external
video flash, external microphone, etc.) other than the PC connection cable and AC adapter/charger.
• When connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, the ACCESS/PC indicator will light green. While HDD or
a disc is being accessed, the indicator will light or blink orange. While an SD memory card is being accessed, the
CARD ACCESS indicator will light or blink red.

If you connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC via PC connection cable, the PC will automatically recognise the DVD video camera/recorder. After recognition is finished, it may be
prompted to restart the PC: In this case, follow the instruction and restart the PC.

Hi just got a LG dvd/vcr Model RC897T. I have it hocked up right, but i can't get it to switch over so that it would be seen on the TV. can you help


If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder.
If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder.
To view or record a CATV channel:
  1. Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
  2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
  3. Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.

Connecting and recording camera with s video output on 1221 tx


Hi,

The cam setup you're trying in your surgery is similar to the type I often setup in Dental operatories for there intra-oral cameras.

You need an tuner, if your external has S-Video port, you can simply plug into it and use windows media center or the cards software(if it came seperate) to record from the s-video feed.

Then you can hook the S-Video output from the laptop to the TV monitor in question and run the laptop in mirrored mode to show the same image on both screens.

Hope this helps,

Chris

This thing recorded video without audio.


No, sorry. This camera has a small glitch where it occasionally records video without sound, especially if it has been on for a while. In order to fix this, you can simply turn the camera off and on when it is recording without sound.
