Question about GE DV1 Camcorder

1 Answer

I have a GE Digital DV1 recorder that does not seem to be holding a charge. Is there any way I can reset the camera to see if this would fix it? This did work on a flip camera I owned previously.

My mini camera is a portable DV1- Has a built in Lith ion and it appears the camera is unable to record past 25 minutes. We have chnaged all the options to the basic. I am looking to reset the camera so it maybe cleanes out the battery memory?

If recording doesn't start when you press record, and you can tell by the viewfinder that the power is on and the battery is charged, check to see that you have a cassette/DVD/memory stick loaded, depending on your model. Make sure one is properly loaded and try again.

Make sure there is enough free space to record in whichever mode your model uses. If it's a cassette, make sure the safety switch on the tape isn't on, and if it's a memory stick, make sure the write-protect tab is off. If it's a disk, make sure it's a recordable one and not one that has been previously finalized, or reformat the disk and try again.

For other minor recording issues--such as manual/auto focus, extra light on/off, steadyshot, recording mode or flash--check your individual settings and consult the owner's manual for your specific model.

Why after 2 or 3 seconds does it stops recording and "slow media" message appears on the screen?

Invariably you are not using the SD card with right speed.
You should use memory cards marked SDHC and speed marked 10 or higher that transfers at 10MB/s or more.
For more details on the speed and Type see graphic below

Finepix f10 problem

Try holding in the power button on the camera with the charger connected to the camera & still plugged into the wall outlet. This may be a reset the manual doesn't tell you about or simply a weird fix for the same problem I had with my F10.
