Question about Video Cameras
Sony model no CCD-F501not worked in about 5 years, I would like to get rid of this problem of moisture that shows up in the view finder. I have many 8 milimeter tapes that I cannot play back or record new ones. Can you help me clear the problem? thank you. My e mail is kailcan@ xplornet.com
Moisture sensor is on the main circuit board and to replace the sensor you probably invest $100-200 for repair. It's the sensor or component surounding the sensor which gone bad. No other way around it. Good luck.

The motor circuit on most handycams has it's own fuse since it draws more power then the rest of the camera combined.
The fuse will only be a tiny white blip on the circuit board about 1-2mm in size.
Safest option would be to have a technician take a look at it since they can be stubborn to even get apart, let alone track down mico fuses.

If you want to record your video tapes on to DVD's using your computer you will need to install on to the computer a video and audio capture card that is compatible to the player that you are going to use for the source. Along with that you will need to install the necessary software that comes with the capture card set, and also you will need the matched interface cables. The computer will also need a large enough hard disk to hold the video information.
You need a player that is compatible to read the old tapes. You can feed the player to a video capture card on your computer. You can then record the video programs on to your computer. After they are recorded, you can start buring DVD's.
There are also professional services that will transfer video tapes to DVD's. They will have much better quality equipment than what you could afford for home use, and you will save a lot of time, energy, and cost compared to doing this yourself, unless you are determined to do it and don't care about the time and cost.

No that is not the proble. In the recrding mode it does record the images as well, but the images are absolutely unclear and does not show any color.
