Question about RCA CC6263 Camcorder

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

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

SOURCE: 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.

What about it ? Do you have one for sale, do you wish to purchase one, or are you just confirming its existence ? If either of the first two, I should try Ebay - if the last, then thank you for the information.

My sony hi8 Handycam TRV 138 gives me a message reinsert tape What is wrong? do it need repair

The cassette is not being detected when the tray is landing. If the head is not spinning but you are getting the cassette ejected then it is a malfunction of the loading mechanism. Even if the tape end detection optocouplers are defective the fault could be so.If you can check this out then try and test the voltage before and after the cassette loads. there should be a change if not replace. check on the loading mechanism too. Hope this helps. Good day

How can I view hi8 video tapes on my VCR My HI 8

VHS units are not capable of reading Hi8 video. You could have a shop transfer your recordings for a nominal service charge but if you have many tapes you may want to have your own unit repaired. You could purchase another unit second hand but be wary of doing so as the tracking could be slightly different to your own one and you would need a service centre to adjust it anyway. Best of luck!

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
