I have a Ge camcorder 8mm model Cg814. When powered on and placed in the edit/playback mode for reviewing, I can hear the sound, but there is no picture in the viewfinder. There is also no picture on the...


It sounds like it could be: (1) Video track on the tape might be messed up. Or (2) The heads on the camera may be dirty. Or, (3) It may be dirty battery connection. (Most likely, it's dirty heads.)

Solutions: (1) Try playback with a different tape that you know is good. Still nothing?? (2) Run a head cleaner specific to your camera, for about 20 seconds. Remove head cleaner and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Put tape back in and try playback again. This will probably solve it.

Another thing to try.. (3) Turn camera OFF. Remove the battery, wipe off the connectors on both the battery and the camera with a clean cloth. Return battery to the camera.Try playback again.

If these steps don't solve the playback problem, you will probably need a camera repair person.

How do i delete all video from my camera at once ? i have downloaded them all to an external hardrive, so I want all that memory freed up on the camera. doing it scene by scene will take forever


Hi there, it's pretty simple cannon just calls it initializing the drive rather then formatting the drive. The steps are as follows:
Hit the function Button on the LCD Scroll down to the icon of the Hard Drive Choose the option Initialize HDD Select YES and then YES again and you're done.
Happy shooting!

Sony CCD V800 change colour to black and white The hi8 lose the colour to black and white when playing


Ether the unit is very dirty and needs to be cleaned as far as the heads go or you got a bad head inside. This will be determined by a camera shop most likely its just dirty and needs its heads cleaned. A HI 8 still is a magnetic tape and thus dirty or dust can get in the recoder head and thus obscure the color or recording. I would be on the safe side here and have a camera shop take a look is you best bet.

Snowy picture, are heads dirty if so will head cleaner work, could there be another problem other than dirty heads?


if it is your heads, a head cleaner tape slowly grinds down your heads. Abrasion bad. Take to shop and have them clean heads with solvent and soft cloth or Q-tips. Might not be your heads, much electronics, but sounds like might be.

Dirty heads


I work for canon and when I get one this dirty I use a tape that has been recorded with used or almost used up. I let the tape rewind and fast forward all the way through. I then use a soft head cleaning tape for 25 secs. If that doesn't work then it might need an adjustment.

Dew Detected message


When the camera's circuits detect condensation on the tape heads, this message is shown and the camera shuts down. This is to prevent damage to tapes, that could stick to the damp head.  It is recommended to leave the camera in a warm and dry place until sufficient time has elapsed for the condensation to evaporate. This may be several hours. Do not leave the camera anywhere too warm that is likely to damage it, like on a stove or radiator.  This issue is commonly caused by moving the camera from the cold outdoors, into the warmth of indoors. If the symptoms persist, the head may be dirty. try a head cleaner cassette, or failing that, return for service.

Camera mode wont turn on?


Is your camera in lock mode? It's easy to accidentally bump that lever when you're adjusting angles.

Pretend record issue


I've had this happen with a Panasonic when I went back out into the cold after going into a warm, humid cafe for lunch. The drum had picked up some condensation, but the condensation detector didn't shut down the camera.
