Question about Hitachi VME510A 8mm Analog Camcorder
I have a number of old tapes from an 8mm camcorder. The camcorder is about 13 years old and has some playback issues, one of which is there is no audio. I got another camera to play the tapes back and move them to DVD but there is no audio coming through on this one either.
The camera that did the original recording is a Hitachi VM-E510a 8mm camcorder. The second camera that I tried is a Canon E06 Canovision 8, Hi-Fi Stereo 8mm camcorder.
I know the problem is not with the TV, cables, or inputs as I have tested all of them with other devices.
I read somewhere that 8mm camcorders record the audio and video in the same stream making it very difficult to dub or edit one without the other. If this is the fact how could I lose audio on the tapes??? I am going to try to get another camera but would appreciate any help that is available. Any ideas as to why I am not getting the sound out of these tapes.
