Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PD100 Camcorder

1 Answer

Sound dropout As I play-back a pre-recorded tape, I have a periodic (rhythmic) drop-put of sound. the same thing appears to be happening, when I record. The sound head (two small openings on the recording drum) has been cleaned - both with a Sony Video head Cleaning Cassette, I purchased, and by hand with alcohol and cotton swab.

Hi, the problem could be because of the problem with the pinch roller ,either it has some wear or the supporting spindle needle has some improper orientation. Is this with a specific tape or all tapes? if it is specific to a tape then it can be because you kept the recorded tape near magnet which causes this rythmic sound drop out. i guess the first one may be mostly happened. all the best sreejith

Problem with recording/playback


If it plays back a pre-recorded tape OK, then the tape head will be good. If it doesn't you might have problem, with either the head or the pre-amp stage.
However if it is playing back OK but not recording, then you have problem in the record circuit. Some tape decks physically switch the circuit when you press record. Pushing the record button will cause a switch to move position. In some cases dirt or dust can get into the switch and it doesn't connect properly. Switch cleaning fluid will correct the problem.
However the record circuit itself could be faulty. Perhaps an IC has developed a fault on one channel, which will need to be replaced.
Watching what happens when you press record with the top cover off, showing the workings, might point to some movement of the mechanism to reveal a faulty switch.

Not all cd tapes play clearly out of 12 tapes ,4 sound ok ,8 soundwrak


Are these all commercial pre-recorded tapes? Or are they tapes that were recorded at home? Is the tape deck one that the tape loads in from the short side and must be flipped around to play the other side....or is it one that the tape loads in with the tape facing in and is auto-reversing? Pre-recorded commercial tapes should work on most machines without problems. Home recorded tapes can be a problem, especially on the type of deck that the tape must be swapped over to play the reverse side. Many users use C90 or C120 tapes to home record. These tapes are thinner than normal tapes and are prone to getting overly tight and then can break and/or stretch. This causes jamming in the deck and distortion of the playback.

Could be because LP record mode was used.
Alo it may be tape dropouts.
Dropouts occur after too many record/erase cycles.

How do I get it to record a voice?


Many portable 'boombox' recorders do not include a microphone for recording ambient sound, but can only record from one internal source to another, like radio or CD to Cassettte. Some do include an input jack for microphones or other audio sources, but you'll need to check your device's specs/ports to be sure.

Recording and Playback error


I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am having the same probelms, and I would appreciate any help with this since I am shooting a childrens camp and I am fairly isolated and don't have the time to swop cameras or send it to get fixed. I need to know if the recording is fine (video and audio) but the playback is not working correctly...or is it not recording correctly or playing back correctly. The sound cuts out from time to time in playback. Thank you.

My AKAI GX 636 records but can't hear anything on playback (had recorded tape play on another reel to reel) plus the VU needles don't move when you try to play a recorded or pre-recorded tape


Trace the wires from the head to the amp section. Put your finger on where they join (during playback) and see if you can get a buzz. If you can't on either channel, look for something that might be common to both channels. Either a switch, or a pre-amp IC, as being the cause of the fault.

No audio and video appears after recording


The blue indicates a lack of video signal. Try playing a pre-recorded tape to see if the unit will "read" a tape. If yes, then the record section of the VCR needs attention. You can ry cleaning the heads as well. If you are not getting sound either, then there is a different problem perhaps the incorrect input is being selected? It is possible that the internal switching is not happening correctly. Without seeing the unit and poking around inside, I can not say for sure, but try the cleaning and update this with any changes in symptoms.

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker


check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.

Old tapes won't play in different Handycam


Were your tapes recorded in extended play? Sometimes that will make it impossible for a different tape deck to play it back correctly. The tolerences on Hi-8 are very small so it is possible that a tiny alignment difference will make it impossible to play back a pre-recorded tape. Try fast forwording and rewinding the tape and try it again. Also try playing it from different parts of the tape. Go to the middle of the tape and try it there.
