Question about Sanyo Xacti VCP-HD2 Camcorder

1 Answer

Sanyo HD2 is now very slow to start-up & switching between modes

During in-camera editing I switched off the camera -urgently... I had to move from where I was in public, urgently and so turned off the camera when it had not yet finished processing a lengthy video edit task.
.
Ever since that event, the camera has been slow to start-up, and a bit slower responding to switching from record and view and vice versa etc.
.
I wonder what I could do to make it speedier like it was before that day; any suggestions as to how to restore the camera?
.
Bye the way; all the photo data in the sdhc card within the camera at the time became unreadable so I deleted those photos, afterwards the sdhc card worked fine ever since.

Sanyo Xacti HD2 Flip Flash Not flashing


Hmm...I can't find a software control either. When the flash is down there is a cross through the lightening mark in the upper left portion of the screen, and when I press the flash button and raise the flash the same lightening mark in the upper left has no cross through it. Do you have the same mark? Does the flash button have no effect upon the mark?

USB device unknown


Make sure you are connecting directly to the computer's USB port, not through a hub. Try disconnecting other USB devices before plugging in the camera. Check the manufacturer's website for updaded drivers: if all else fails, a reinstall of the camera's drivers may be in order.

I need an "activation code" from Corel to complete the installation


Perhaps your camera only comes with a trial or limited edition of the software. Try proceeding without the activation code and/or read through the camera's documentation very carefully.

You can try Nero 8 (www.nero.com) which has a cool player (Nero Showtime) and a user friendly transcoding/DVD authoring tool (Nero Vision) to offer. You may also consider Videolan VLC (www.videolan.org) which is free, open source, less user-friendly but it supports batch file conversion -- a realloy cool features when you have a dozen+ video files to convert.

Sanyo XACTI HD1 Camera-No Pictures / Videos captured.


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.
