Making noise and won't pass initial on ...

The camcorder was working perfectly fine (no one dropped it or anything as far as I know) but the last time I tried to fire it up it won't get passed verifying the disk and it's clicking like it's trying. Then when I shut it off it clicks constantly and louder then when it's trying to initialize until it shuts off ... :( ... HELP!!

My polaroid dvf 130 camcorder won't connect to my computer.the software it came with says it doesnt need a driver since I have windows xp what should I do?

this is what i did, and it worked perfectly. go out and get a sd card * any gig u want* as soon as u put the sd card into the camera, FORMAT IT!!!!. do that before u do anything else. don't format it on ur pc or laptop. format it on the camera. if u do that it will work perfectly. i don't know why it wasn't in the manual to format sd card first. but if u try to take pics first, that will mess up the entire system and u will be assed out a sd card. it took me 3 sd cards to figure this out. the cards worked fine but not in the camera. then i formatted it on the camera first and it works fine. the other sd cards i use for other things, i won't discard them but they won't work in the cam. but remember again GET NEW SD CARD AND FORMAT THE CARD IN THE CAMERA FIRST.

Black screen when recording.

I would check to see if the cable to and from the lens assembly had come loose. If so resecure it carefully and this should take care of your problem . Larry's Electronics repair.

This is a common problem with alot of Sony CamCorders...The solution is simple.....GIVE IT A WHACK!!!

Seriously, Take the battery off the device, Give the camera a smart "smack" on the tape side of the unit and power it back up.

works in 90% of cases!!!

Recording and playback problems

Profession diagnosis was that the drum is out of round and cost of repair prohibitive, so I bought a new Panasonic PV-GS500 with a service contract this time! I had actually dropped the GS-150 when it was fairly new and the fall was cushioned by landing on the battery, so I did get a couple of years of good use from it.

I continue to use it as a still camera -- Amazingly, it takes great stills (better than my GS500). Unfortunately, my husband lost the lens cover (and the lens is kind of scratched now), so I would like to replace these parts if I can do so at a reasonable price. Thanks.

Initializing DVD-RW Discs

This camcorder only takes DVD-R and DVD-RW, it will not work with the +R discs. I've used Maxell and Fujifilm discs and they both worked fine. You have to make sure the camcorder is plugged in the wall when initializing or else it won't initialize.

Run a head cleaner through the unit, More than likely you simply have a clogged audio head. It may take a few passes to clear it out.

Strange problem in dcr trv 140 sony camcorder.

Did you turn the exposure lock on? That would lock the iris so that it will not adjust for changes in lighting.
