Re: dv tape issues

You could buy one... but I think you'd probably be happier if you went to a local college that has a "Visual Communications" department, and pay a student to transfer all your stuff to DVD. It would be cheaper and you wouldnt have a useless piece of equipment afterwards.

Black horizontal lines accross screen


Initially, try a video head cleaner. There are versions that are at the same size of your video tapes but contains a cleaning strip. A cleaning solution is likewise added.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I want to copy video footage from the tape to the sd card.

You cannot transfer the video from Mini-DV to SD card within your camera as your camcorder does not have this feature. If your purpose for finding this function is to transfer your footage to your computer, you may try using the firewire port in your camera to connect it to your pc.
If you need help with the firewire connection, feel free to post a follow up.
Hope this helps!

No sound when playing back video footage

If there is an external microphone jack on the camera, it would help if you tried recording with an external microphone. Also, the mini DV's will mute the sound if the tape guides are slightly out of adjustment. You can tell if they have moved by trying a known good sound tape in the machine. If that plays with no sound also, the tape guides have moved out of alignment.

Usually when the recording is started it takes around 10 to 15 seconds for the camera to recognise and display the duration of remaining tape, if you feel there is a problem, try using different brand tape.
