Question about Samsung Video Cameras

Blurry video recording

My Samsung VP-D103i records blurry, but when I switch to Power Night Capture then everything is clear again, so I can only record in this mode. I'm not sure if my cam corder is the same model as yours but it is a Samsung and it does exactly the same thing as you have mentioned. The normal vision picture is all light and blurry, like it is out of focus, but on the Night Capture mode the picture is perfect, and records perfectly. I have lost my instruction book, so am not sure if I can adjust the focus somehow to record in the normal mode.

Since the camcorder returns to the auto shutter setting and the auto exposure setting when it's switched into Night Capture mode, I would say that might be your problem.  Change your shutter and exposure settings. To do this, switch to Camera mode, turn the menu dial to the setting you wish to change then press enter.  You may have to play with the settings until you get the desired picture. Remember, faster shutter speeds for faster action (stop action), and longer exposure settings for darker situations. Let me know if you need more help.

Hi, i have used my camcode after few months and now when i am trying to record some thing the image on the display panel as well as recording quality is very blur. its not clear . please let me know the...


My thoughts is the heads on the drum are getting clogged. The best thing to do is to take it into a place like Best Buy who may be able to have the appropriate cleaning tools to clean the debris from the heads.
Cleaning should be left to the professionals especially with Mini DV as the heads and head drum is so small and tiny.

Blessings,

Sanyo Xacti CA6EX shows just steaky, blurry image


Sounds tasty! ;)

Just kidding. What kind of stReaky images is it recording? Is the problem that you are using it in bad light (eg indoors at night)? It could just be camera shake.

Make sure that your camera is in auto mode and try again - if it was in a slow shutter speed mode, then this could be more of a problem. Also try using flash, if you camera has one.

Recording very snowy and blurred.


If recordings are only blurry and snowy on playback on camcorder, but are OK on a different camcorder or on computer, then the problem is a dirty magnetic head. Use a mini-dv head cleaner tape. If recordings are blurred even on pc or on a different camera, then there is a fault. Faulty CCD sensor, faulty digital board, problem with internal ribbon connector, and dirty or defective lens assembly can cause this kind of problem.

Samsung VP -D103i


If your camera uses video tapes, they have a little sliding piece on the back to stop you accidently recording on an important tape you want to keep. Slide it over for 'save' to 'rec' and you can record on it.

JVC Picuture gets blurry


The ccd block is starting to fail. Thats the chip thats the eye of the camcorder at the back of the lense assy. Its mounted on a small circuit board. You can find the chip at parts.com. Its just a matter of dissassembling the camcorder and removing the chip from the board and soldering another onto it taking care not to over heat the chip. You do need good soldering skills.

Memory stick eject


well to record onto, switch the power button to "camera mode". this will let the camera know to record as well as take pictures onto the memory stik.

As for ejecting the memory stik, jus simply push it INWARD gently and it will spring OUTWARD toward you. to put it bac, do the opposite till the card locks into place

Samsung sc-d353 blurry now black


Problem is fixable and not expensive either : CCD sensor is faulty and needs replacing.You do have a case for having this problem sorted out by Samsung agent free of charge because the sensor should last 10 years +.

My screen is blurry


When you say "blurry" do you mean optically blurry or skipping frames, or maybe just very pixelated? Blurry as in fog on a window means optics are probably dirty. A fingerprint, some KFC juice...all could cause blurry. You also didn't mentionw hat you are recording it on, but hope this helps a little.
