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.

• 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.

My external mic wont work! Please help.

If the mic is working on other camera's, what about the adaptor ? If there is a possiblity of checking the mic and the adaptor together on other equipment ? Use another mic with the same plug as the camera, ie. PC microphone (you can even test by using an earphone, the earphone can be used as mic) If it works then the XLR mic with adaptor is the problem. If ther other mic (used for testing) also did not work then the microphone jack (socket) in the camera is defective or the gain setting of the camera is set to minimum.

No sound when I play back using an external micropohone however when I play back on the TV full sound. Any solution?

Microphones are input devices; they don't double as speakers. If you mean that a stand-alone set of speakers do not work, but the internal speakers of the tv do let you hear the audio track from the camera. Then I have a couple of different suggestions: 1) make sure the stand-alone speakers work with other input sources, 2) try a different cable (make sure it is connected properly).

Also how are you connecting to the different devices? The video camera has an HDMI port which will send audio and video to the TV on one cable. If you are using the RCA audio in both cases, then I suspect a problem with the external speakers.

If you mean that the audio track is clear on play-back when you use the built-in microphone during the recording and not heard if the external microphone, check the external mic for problems. Try it on another recording device. I can't rule out a jack failure without more information.

I hope this helps.

Can I connect an external mic to a JVC Everio GZ-hd3ek? Thanks

YES - t built in microphone and the appropriate ports to allow connection of an external microphone.
GO to some eletronics store. Tell them you need a MIC with a MINI-JACK connector. mini jack is the end of the microphone - its really just the size - so.

Is there anyway that I can turn the microphone off on my camera. I don't need the sound. The camera is used for work.

I don't think you can actually switch off the microphone, but turning the recording volume all the way down should do the trick.

I connect the IEEE cable (4 pin to 4 pin) to the camera and the computer and turn the camera to "play". The camera is not recognized by the computer.

Check the cable first. It's easy - put another one. If it works - change the cable. If Not - check the PC input by connecting another similar camera. If it works with another camera, then Your IEEE camera port is broken and needs to be repaired. And the order of connection must be: 1. Power off camera. 2. Put IEEE cable on it. 3. Plug another connector of cable on computer. 4. Power on the camera. DON´T TRY TO CONNECT A CAMERA IN A PLAY MODE, it probably can destroy Your camera IEEE port. Sincerely.

JVC Everio GZ HD-40's external microphone problem

I have the GZ-HD40 and have tested the scenario below.

The problem is that the Microphones you are using are Mono, not Stereo. If you look at the plug on the end of your microphone you will see it has only two connections, the screen and the tip. For a Stereo mic it needs three connections screen, sleeve and tip, much like your headphone jack.

I know this is going to sound a bit nuts but use a set of head phones as a microphone. You will notice the left speaker acts as the left mic and the right speaker as the right mic.

Use microphone JVC MZ-V8 Stereo microphone and you will see that it has the three connectors as I have stated above.

Hope this helps.

Input audio to PV-GS250 from an external mixer

Problem check list:

- Try another cable in the connection to rule out the cable
- Make sure the 1/8 plug goes in all the way
- Make sure you have it connected to proper outputs on the mixer (and that it's not a powered mixer!)
- Make sure you don't have the output volume up too loud on the mixer

Connecting zr85 to vcr to record vhs tape to dv or sd card

I also have a Canon ZR-- left of the lens and the built-in microphones, there is a small panel that opens to reveal several ports. The middle yellow one is the AV In/Out. You can plug in the cable that came with your camera. One end looks like a microphone plug, the other has 3 RCA type plugs- red, white and yellow. These get plugged into your VCR's OUT plugs on the back of the VCR. Place a tape in the camcorder, open the LCD panel and push the REC PAUSE button. On the VCR, press the Play button. When the tape reaches the point you want to begin recording, press the camcorder's Play/Pause button. When you want to stop recording, press the Stop button on the camcorder.
This is also detailed on page 82 of your manual, manuals are available online at Your specific manual is at:
Hope this helps.

I need a way to hook the camcorder to PC

If you will look at the front of the camera (where the lens is), you will see a gray door that opens. If you will look in there you will find: USB port, AV outlet and external microphone jack.
Hope that help you out...
