Re: RCA cc540 VHS camcorder

Hi, Try running the camera using the AC power (charger) instead of the battery. If the viewfinder works then, it is possible that the replacement battery somehow is not suited for your particular brand/model and is not capable of supplying all the need voltages/power. Try continuously charging the battery for 16 hrs at least to see if this will correct the problem. If even in using the AC power (adapter) instead of the battery, the view finder is still off, then you have a camera fault. Normal problem for this is the thin flexible flat cable that attaches the screen to the electronics inside the camera. In some case, it is the backlight of the display that is at fault. Either which would require the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.

Rca cc540 video vhs camcorder manual

I have an owner's manual for an RCA CC412/540/542. This is not a schematic; just an owner's manual. Almost new; probably used one time.

Sony HVR-A1U "Reinsert Cassette" Error pops up frequently

I have had this error on my 3 year old Sony A1E and it has resulted in glitched picture and audio, despite not showing a poblem whilst recording. It came up with C:31:23 error. Start of the tape seemed ok and the end seemed to get pixellated. A friend said the PD170 had the same issue and had to have her tape heads changed. I've tried cleaning mine but problem still there. I'm looking at getting new NXCAM as I've spent a lot of money last year getting it fixed.

Camcorder won't record

Check the tape and make sure the record tab is still on the tape and has not been removed. If the record tab has been removed then use a new tape for recording as the unit will not record. This tap is usually on the lower left end of the back of the tape. When the tap is present it closes a record mode switch letting the system know the tape is able to bv recorded on..

Code: 31:23....please reinsert tape. everytime i switch it on.


u need to rate me for that ..ok dude....

actually this error is related to s reel i.e, the supply reel of the camcorder and some time when we insert a new tape in camcorder it start giving the error because the amount of tension is more in new tapes as compared to the old ones (used one) . . try to use the old tape u would nt have any problem .

but with new tape u will have these kinds of problem some times , to solve this problem for new tape u need to take the camcorder to near by service center of sony .nd they will align the tape path of your camcorder .

Accidently recorded over important material on a vhs tape. Is there anyway I can retrieve it??

I'm afraid not. When you record, the record heads automatically erase everything that was previously on that tape. So whatever footage was on that tape is gone for good. Sorry!

Need unit to put tape into, to play in vcr

What you need is a VHS C adaptor. I did a Google search and found at least 10 sites selling them. Rather than cut and paste, I suggest you go to Google and type in "VHS C Adaptor".
