Question about Video Cameras
I have just got my camcorder out to playback some tapes prior to editing them and converting the results to DVD.
I am getting a F 02 fault and the picture, when it does run, is very jittery,
I have given it a blow out with 'Clean-Aer', and tried to run my Scotch cleaning tape to no avail.
Anything I can do or is this a workshop job.
BTW, I last used the camcorder in Singapore about 2 years ago.

I have the same problem, i was just using my camcorder and when i changed the tape, it says incompatble tape and now it wont play or record at all. It has happened to me today.My friend told me to leave for a while and try again. Hi C8dee, is your camcorder working, any updates, did you find a solution. firstname.lastname@example.org

I Had a similar problem with my 8600. Most likely the camera
is also no longer recording. There were two problems I found,
either one could have caused the problem. 1) the 8mm tape was not
actually moving through the record/play head. With modern cameras. there are no indications that the tape is actually moving.
2) the record/play head is dirty. What I did was remove the
side plate that covers the tape cassette to allow me to verify that
the tape was moving properly. After that, I removed the tape, removed the battery, and used isopropyl alcohol and a q tip
to clean the head. I imagine there are cleaning tapes that one
can buy to do this as well. though I doubt they work as well as
a q tip. THere are two screws that hold the cover on.
