Re: camcorder recording problem

If 600 sgd is labor only - around 400 usd - you might consider cost of trading up to a newer model ( check ebay for second camera , while you wait for . . . warranty repairs ) ;

Is there any way to finalize a mini dvd disc from a Canon DC210 without a working camcorder?

hi, i dont think so usely it as to be made by the camera,normally when you finish recording
you press pause and then stop and let it go for few minutes and the camera should finilize
the disk by chapter,then eject.

hope that will help
regards Alan

Purchased Canon FS-20 camcorder last week to take on vacation to Disney World. Used it first day for 3 hours off and on then got error message: ''Cannot access internal memory''. Will not record even with...

I've got the same problem, also with a brand-new Canon Legria FS 20. As Canon told me, I took it to a Canon office to be repaired. It was repaired. I tried filming and it worked. Then I tried to view this film and I got the same error message again: cannot access internal memory. I also can't film anymore now. I'll call Canon now and ask them what to do. Repairing didn't help, I want a new cam, but I'm not sure the FS 20 is a good choice. There seems to be a problem with it.

Hi Everyone,

Hope this helps

Mini DVD will not eject

yes - your warranty will be voided and cost of parts can be unreasonably high , but if your ' do not shake ' display came on repeatedly ? the door switch may have gone out of alignment during a fall : the canon service manual is available only to authorized servicers so a set of quality jeweler ' s screwdrivers would be needed to . . . void the warranty some more but let you open the cabinets to get at the release mechanism ;

Sound is ok, but do not record images.

I have had the same problem since I purchased mine 4 years ago and it has been repaired 3x and is in the shop for a 4th. I had the extended warranty and Futureshop refuses to acknowledge that it is a Lemon and should be replaced as they don't consider resoldering wires as a "repair". My unit has been in the service center a total of 12 weeks over the 4 years. The service center recommends Sony Camcorders and the Claim center said they get few Sony camcorders so I would say the Canon problem is an issue that is common. Sorry to say. Mike
