Question about RCA CC6263 Camcorder
I read tomahola's solution about HI8 EX1 and he said that he replaced the capacitors. A professional cameraman wants to give me HI8 EX1 for free because it won't start up ( it doesn't necesarily be the capacitors but I presume they are because many people have the same problem). It would be a good use to me because I'm trying to study for a movie director and I don't have almost any equipment (I I don't have my own camera, I always borrow little home cameras).
My question is: if the capacitors are the problem, is there a sense for reparing the whole thing anyway and where can capacitors be bought (and what are they actually? :)), how expensive are they, and can the official Canon repairmen repair this as well, even if this camera is from 1990.?
I'm sorry to write this much. Thank you
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

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.
