    I have 5 grey bars in the picture. Cleaning cassette does not help.

    I guess there is still dirt on one of the heads on the drum.

    Can it be cleaned manually?

    I have 5 gray horizontal lines on playback. LIke some other similar posts, its  I have also had problems with an error message, but since it is playing now - with the gray bars - I can't report what the error number is. (I guess I should have written it down.)

Fast forward and rewind a cassette several times without using A/C, to drain the battery. Recharge the battery; and you may have found your solution. If that does not work, replace the battery- online auction sites have them for about 10 bucks. If that does not work, start saving your pennies- the prices have come down so much on these things that you can get a high quality Samsung that will everything but outperform your existing camcorder- for $135 USD. Good Luck

We are trying to get some Hi8 footage onto our macintosh computer. We have both the VHS camera and the Elura 90. We have a firewire and have successfully transfered lots of digital video onto the computer,...


the procedure is the same ..for vhs...but you will need a firewire cable ..also ..and a program that will import from device...The issue is that Im not sure what program you need for MAC ..but if you have a windows computer available to do that ..things are getting simple..just follow this video..
http://www.5min.com/Video/Windows-Movie-Maker---import-from-a-DV-tape-6876
So...if you have a movie maker in your Mac ..the procedure will be the same ,just playback in the camera ...be sure it is detected by the firewire cable...and record (import ) with the movie maker...
Please dont forget to rate if this helps...

HI8 EX1 capacitors problem, is a repair a good solution?


capacitors are unexpensive, can be obtained in almost any electronics store or even pulled out from any other piece of electronics, if it matches the specs of yours; you need to have the specs for the original capacitor
To have it replaced, the repairman has to be skilled and careful while removing the soldering of the older one and most careful installing the replacement
I have had capacitors replaced in mother boards and if done with care, they back to working status
total cost of repair is low

Canon EX1


I have a EX1 Hi8 too and I have had the same problem. This camera is very old and it has a lot of capacitors inside that are leaking and drying out. They need to be replaced. This is a huge and difficult job and it makes no sense to repair. I did it anyway.

Camcorder is dead - power supply not to blame.


Intermittent fault? Playback of recorded footage not possible.
Even tried to check 'playback' with an older tape.

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.

It's probably not out of line. A one hour minDV holds about 13.5 gigs. AVI files need a LOT of space. Yes, it will be compressed before it goes to DVD, but compression (also called rendering) usually isn't done during the capture process. How much hard drive space do you have? You probably need more.
