Yashica Samurai Video 8 playback

I own a Yashica Samurai Video 8, which has a problem with the playback. I hit play and then the video plays for 3 seconds, then it stops and the 'CAUTION' light becomes lit. I have hours of home movies on this camera and would really like to see them again, as well as put them on VHS. any help is appreciated

Hi,
If you're interested in having your video8 recordings digitized, you can check out our website at www.digisize.ca.  We offer a convenient digitizing service at an excellent price.
For your tapes, if you've tried it on several cameras, it may be that your tapes have been damaged or deteriorated with old age.  You can take them to a professional to have them cleaned and treated, but that is no guarantee that they will work thereafter, I'm afraid.

Playback 8mm camcorder tape fuzzy


8 mm and the newer super 8 mm video tapes are different. You can't use super 8 mm in old player. And old tapes won't play well in new super 8 mm players. Like Sony!

How long is my Trio supposed to play? I'm only getting 4 hours on a full charge.


As per the company specifications it should provide up to 8 Hours of Continuous Playback. I'd suggest that you set the light out time at 10 seconds keep power saving mode and reduce the brightness. Also dont play at full volume.

This will help you to increase the playback time. Though not up to 8 hours. Make sure not to overcharge the battery.

Also the video playback time is 3-4 hours. As you have not specified whether you are reffering to audio or video playback time, so I am assuming its audio playback time. If its video or mixed then your player is ok..

Hope this helps..

If video head got clogged then camcorder wont read tape in playback so result comes as blue screen.
Please use video head cleaning tape and clean video head of camcorder. This will solve your problem.

Playback


That's dirty video head! Try to playback new tape for five minutes, do it for 2 to 3 times, this will serve as your videohead cleaner. eject then reinsert then playback, eject again for at least 3 to five times. most camera has a built in videohead cleaner that activates during eject, initial play and reinsert mode. you can even try to play the whole blank tape! thats 1 to 2 hours of playback! If the problem is still there after doing those things, you need pro fix then.

Playing MPEG's


* The MPEG Playback function works in M. PLAY mode only. * You can play moving picture images on the Memory Card. * To hear sound during MPEG4 playback, you must hook up to a PC and listen to the PC's speaker. (You cannot hear it from the speaker on the camcorder or a TV) 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD position. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER mode. 3. Press the MENU button and turn the MENU DIAL to highlight MEMORY. 4. Press the ENTER button to enter sub-menu. 5. Use the MENU DIAL to select MPEG4 from the sub-menu. (M. PLAY SELECT) 6. To exit the menu, push the MENU button. 7. Using the (FWD) and (REV) buttons, search for the moving picture that you want to playback. 8. Press the PLAY/STILL button. The moving pictures recorded on the MEMORY CARD begin playing back.
