Question about Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Audio dropout I use my camcorder in the weekend I'm hindu wedding videographer.Since october last year I didn't get any problem.It is since mid July 07 that I started getting the audio dropouts from time to time.I use the vx2100 for recording and panasonic MD9000 for playback and capturing for editing.First time I noticed the dropout problem while capturing which was in an interval of 5 to 6 sec luckily audio was not important. Panicked, I had never come across this problem,my only solution was to use video head cleaner,I recorded and checked: the recording was fine I got relief as I had to cover an important wedding ceremony for three days.The first day after knowing the problem,I recorded for 30 mins I didn't get the problem.The second day I recorded for one hour it was when I checked I noticed that the last 10 mins the problem existed. The 3rd day audio was not important so I continued recording for 30 mins without problem. I always used panasonic master and ordinary mini dv tapes I started using sony tapes for compability. I had to cover another wedding function, on another one hour recording I noticed I had problem on the last part of recording. Another remark is on playback on the same recorded camcorder the problem is more noticeable than on another player. I dubbed 40 mins video with my vx2100 and still got the after 15 mins. PLease help me what should i do?

Results from the July Texas bar exam are online

Men and women who sat for the Texas bar exam in July are enjoying a special treat this Halloween. The Texas Board of Law Examiners (TBLE) in Austin administers the exam and today posted the names of those who passed the July exam on its site. The agency also provides the pass rate data for each of the nine American Bar Association- accredited law schools in Texas.

Graduates of Baylor University School of Law in Waco take first place among the Texas schools with the highest percent passing rate: 97.52 percent or 118 of 121 of its graduates who took the test for the first time in July, according to the TBLE.
The overall passage rate of Texas grads is 88.74 percent, or 1,561 of 1,759 first-time test-takers. The overall passage rate of Texas law school grads is slightly higher than the 86.49 percent, or 1,524 of 1,762 Texas law school first-time test-takers who passed the exam in July of 2012.
Congratulations to all!

The tapedoor to my RCA cc6151 VHS Analog Camcorder won't open.

It is over 18 years old - the probability is that some of the electronic components have deteriorated to such an extent that it is no longer usable.

Video cam

Windows Movie Maker is pretty limited. I think Microsoft gave up on software like that. Especially since it creates files in version 8 format. I think there up to 11 these days.

Pinnacle Studio is a good program to use. I have used it professionally for over 5 years now and have produced 100s of videos and DVDs with it covering everything from You Tube videos up to a wedding I shot for a client this last weekend.

Once you connect your camera to it and turn it on, it gives you the option to start it up.

Choppy audio VX2000

tape path alignment is very critical for these cameras. audio dropout is a typical symptom of misalignment. find a good local repair shop; if they know what they are doing, it should be a simple alignment job.
