    Re Sony handycam DCR-TRV900E. When trying to capture still picture from tape to memory card I get the warning The tape has no memory left or cannot use the memory

  • magnar_mikke Jun 21, 2009

    May be, but the memory card is connected to a 1.44 floppy disk, which I just formatted, so it is empty. Earlier I have used this way of capturing still photos for transport to my computer, and I have never before encountered this problem. It looks like the camera don't recognize the floppy adapter and/or the memory card attached to it. 

  • magnar_mikke Jun 21, 2009






    The memory card (and the adapter) functions when connected to my computer, so it is in order. The problem must be in the camera, or in the connection between the card and the carmera. May be there is a bug or a malfuntion in the programming inside the camera. I don't have an extra SONY card and living in the most remote parts of Europe, there are some 500 miles to a relevant data store. Obviously the program in the camera "cannot use the memory," as there is enough of "memory left."

    ============================================================

    OK, that shows that memory card is full with photo files and has no more space to store more photo data.
    Please transfer pictures from memory card to computer to create space in memory card for new pictures.
    Thanks.

    Yes, sounds camera does not recognize it. If you have Sony memory stick, try it.

How to operate gr-d70k digital video camera?do i need recording tape even they have a memory card?and how to change the language from japanese to english


You will need a Mini DV tape to record videos. The memory card can only record snapshots. When you rotate the LCD panel away from the body of the camera, you will see some controls. On the left of the second row, there is a switch. Set it to Memory to record to the memory card. Set the switch to Video to record to the tape.

I'm not sure how to change the language. There are no language options for the GR-D70.

The manual for the JVC GR-D70 is available here: http://www.jvc.co.uk/files/instruction_manual/lyt1145-001a.pdf . I believe that the GR-D70K will work the same way.

I hope this helps.

The fuse panel is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, next to the emergency brake pedal. You need to remove the under-dash insulation to access some parts of the fuse panel.

I have a vx2000 and it has a flashing yellow box with what looks like a water droplet inside of it. Also where the amount of tape left would be there are numbers flashing. Whats wrong with it?


Sounds like the DEW warning is activated.
This occurs when you take a camera form a heated room to an external cold environment. Condensation forms inside the camera.
The Dew warning serves to protect the tape and camera. Wait until the camera acclimatizes and the condensation disappears.
There is most likely nothing wrong with the camera.

10.1000 Supply Memory error. How can I fix that?


sounds like might be your toner, specifically your black toner.
is this a non-standard toner or HP? IF it your toner you can try this:

Place a stip of opaqe tape or paper or the chip. When the printer detects a non-standard cartridge press the green (go) button. It will then reset the LCD to Ready.

Found this info on a recycled manufacturer site. http://www.infinityimaging.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.exe/online-store/scstore/p-2300.html?E+scstore

otherwise it's probably the memory on the printer, try removing or replacing a DIMM

Warning sound, didn't move


Check to be sure the correction tape isn't tangled in the print wheel. If it is or was check the wheel to be sure it isn't damaged,
Then try it without the correction tape.

Eats my Cassette Tapes


Ok sound like the play head is out of a-line ment - easy way to fix if it is this - remove from the mains supply and open the cassette deck door - press the play button down and look at the play head there is 2 screws 1 either side 1 is fixed and 1 is sprung - now inset batterys (much safer) - try and fit a cassette in without using the cassette door should just fit in then press play and ajust the Right hand side scree with a small screwdriver (insulated) and ajust slightly to the left or to the right and this should fix the chewing - to get it just right use headphones ajusting left to right will tke the sound + & - to each earphone. Warning dont turn to far to the left as this will undo the screw completely - u have a least 1 whole turn either way is fine

Tape being rejected


I had this problem this weekend with an Elura 65, where the camera would not accept a tape. If you inserted a tape, it would beep a few times, the LCD screen would flash "REMOVE CASSETTE TAPE" and then it would spit the tape out. I had the camcorder stored in a ziplock bag in a cool / dry cabinet in our spare bedroom. None of the previous solutions worked for me (clean the heads, take out the batteries, remove power for 20 minutes, remove the memory card, etc).

What worked for me:
I left the main battery in, installed the small memory battery, installed the SD memory card and plugged in the power cord. I left the camera out (close to my computer), which is upstairs in my house- in a 70-75 degree Farenheight environment - for 24hrs. After 24hrs of sitting out and being plugged in to power, I suspect everything came to an ambient temperature and the camera worked fine. (you might try up to 48hrs of being warm)

I suspect that most people's cameras are having this trouble when the internal parts of the camera are not all warmed up so the camera will reject a tape because something is NOT functioning properly when cold.

If you look at the timing of these postings, you will see that most people are posting issues in the cold winter months. I won't buy another Canon Camcorder, but am appeased at it coming back to life long enough for me to download my information to my computer.

If you call the service support for Canon (which I did), they will ask you for your serial number, model, date of purchase, name, email address & mailing address. They will ask you to mial your camera along with the printed information above and detail your problem. It will take 7-10 business days for someone to contact you via email or phone.

Good luck with your camcorders!

Canona Elura 60 problem...


What a hunk of junk. Not a month after the warranty period expired, my Elura 60 would zoom out without warning and refused to stay zoomed in. I paid Canon to fix that problem.

Now, I'm on vacation (in the Carribean for more than 24 hours) and the unit wouldn't accept a tape. Every time I tried to load a tape, it would beep five times and then kick the tape out. So I tried taking all of the batteries and media out. That didn't work.

Next, I tried the drop method. I figured the unit is broken and I'm not going to pay again to get it fixed, so dropping it couldn't break it anymore than it already is. I let the unit fall onto the throw rug in the bathroom. In then tried to install a tape. Waddyaknow! It worked.

I can only reiterate again two things: dropping the camera from about 6" onto a carpeted surface over a tile floor seemed to clear up my "remove the cassette" problem, and the Elura 60 is a temperamental hunk of junk (although the recordings and playback are pretty good, when you can actually get a tape into the unit).
