SOURCE: Touchscreen buttons not working

the flexwire is the problem of your camera, the touch screen connection is already cut..go to a service center for replacing or repairing the flexwire...is not easy for repairing that if you are not a technician that wiring is like a strand of hair that why is difficult to fix but in our shop we modified that and become more durable than the original...

SOURCE: touchscreen wont work

This fault is often caused by a failing flat cable that connects the LCD panel and the rest of the camera. In its early stages it is possible to get the buttons on the touch panel to work by carefuly changing the angle of the LCD panel while trying out the buttons until you get a position where they work.
When the flat cable gets worse , the picture on the LCD panel will start deteriorating and go off altogether.
At this stage you may consider having the flat cable replaced.

When I turn on my handycam the Clock Set screen comes up and whatever I press, nothing responds. I cannot get this screen to go away so I can play tapes and record


Hi,every camcorder has a special built-in battery for its clock in addition to the external camcorder battery which works independently.You have to replace it...
Would you please locate that small battery on the main body of camcorder hiding with small cover lid possibly you need to get in with a tiny screw to open it..and replace that battery and re adjust the clock once ,than no more the Clock Set screen comes up..

Directions for Resetting the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Start & End Dates on the Emerson Research Smartset Dual Alarm Clock Radio on CKS1850


Unfortunately, you can't reset the firmware of the clock for those built before Jan 2006; you can work-around the issue. You will need to change time zones for the few weeks between the current daylight savings start and end dates and the ones that were built into the clock. For details see: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm ; click on the link for Group 1.

If the unit was built before Jan 2006 (the serial number will start with a value less than 6), switch the time zone to the next one further east on the second Sunday of March, then set it back to your correct time zone on the first Sunday of April. Repeat this on the last Sunday of October and the first Sunday of November. (If you are in the Eastern time zone (zone 2), set the switch to zone 1.)

If the unit was built between Jan 2006 and July 2006 (serial numbers that start 601 to 606), then you can change the start and end dates for DST. See: http://www.emersonradio.com/dst.htm then choose the Group 2 link. Press and hold the Alarm 1 button then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. After three seconds the unit will display the start date for daylight savings. Press and hold the Alarm 1 and Month/Date or Calendar buttons. When the display is flashng (within 5 seconds from the press and hold step), press the Down or Set button (depending on the SmartSet mode) three times until the display reads 3 and F2 (alternating with the date of that Sunday).

For the end date, press and hold Alarm 2 then press the Month/Date or Calendar button. Then press and hold Alarm 1 and the Month/Date or Calendar button. Again within 5 seconds, press the Up button or Set until the display shows 11 and F.

If the display stops flashing, repeat and set the new dates faster.

You'll have to repeat this is the battery is removed or replaced.

I hope this helps.

Time/Date stamp doesn't show up...


this camcorder has a built in rechargeable battery for the memory of the date and time, if you do not use it for more than three months, it will discharge all the way; to recharge, you need to plug camera with ac power for 24 hours and the camera turned off. this should charge the internal battery complete.

When entering the date or time if the digit is single a zero must be entered first!
- press menu/select in idel mode
- press V/^ until you reach date/tem then menu/select

- set date eg 0109 , press menu/select
-set time e.g 0730 and ^/v for am/pm then menu/select
- screen should display STORED

Replaced battery - need to reset clock / radio won't play


My manual said the same thing. Although I have never had the radio stop working on me even after I changed the battery. To set the clock you hold the mode button, like your changing the bass/ treble. Hold it down then it will show clock flashing. From there I cant remember i think i used the arrows by the number pad to change the time. Hope this works for you.

Time Date Stamp on finished Video


the time and code is recorded all the time but the only way to put it on the display is to use the remote control. when plyback a tape press the time/code button(i think this is the right name of the button)on the remote. this camcorder has a different way to display the time than other cams and you have to do this every time you play something(feature does not stay on after shutting down the cam or ejecting tape)
