How to switch from sp to lp mode when playing back?

I recorded MINI DV on my old camcorder (JVC GR D20E) and now I want to play them in my new camcorder (JVC GR D250 UA) but it won't work. What I notice is that the tape plays in a much faster mode and I can't seem to slow it down. The new camcorder seems to be set standard in LP mode (when recording and playing back) Is there any way for me to fix it?
Can I perhaps load the old tapes to the computer and then play it back in a different setting? Can I use the new camcorder to load it although it is in a faster setting?
Thank you
Nicole

    Yes, I tried it already and it did not work

    I dont think it has a playback autodetect speed setting.
    Or if it does I can't find it.
    The option for sp/lp playback does not seem to help in either setting.

Check setting on MENU on NEW camcorder.see if you have a playback autodetect speed setting.Im assuming you dont have OLD camcorder anymore..If you still do you can playback on OLD one and use audio video out and input it into new CAM to record on new tape if new one has an input feature.Or input it into a vcr and record on new tape.

    Does the camcorder allow you to record in SP?

I recorded a video using sony hd100n in dv format,when i capture it using jvc minidv camcorder(jvc GR-DVL820u) the the capturing is not good specialy the audio.what is the posible solution?


May be you recorded it on LP, LP recording are sensitive to interchangeability issues or it could beyour JVC's LP heads are weak. If you have an idea on how to adjust pole base, try to adjust supply side on your JVC(left side pole base) while playing and observe the sound while adjusting it. Be careful not to touch parts at the sorroundings,pay a lot of attention while doing this. If you do not have background in this field, let the pro do the job. Good luck

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????


If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.

Mode for playback of older 8mm tapes using Sony DCR-TRV730 ?


In 1990s Sony camcorder records movie in analog format so playing in digital camcorder like DCR-TRV730 doesn't mean it will be converted in digital format and you can not import file in PC for editing purpose. You will get analog signal while playing back old cassettes.

Regarding SP, LP speed, its decided at time of recording. Camera sens SP or LP automatically in playback and set itself accordingly.

If you want to convert old cassettes into digital format, connect our camcorder to DVD recorder and burn DVD which is digital format, copy DVD files in to PC and do desired editing.

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running


the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.

Playing back footage on pc


mini DVs sometimes can't be access using usb interface, try to look if u have a firewire interface, be sure your laptop supports IEEE1394. power dvd is the best player for dvd files. -r means recordable, not rewritable (rw). if ur not familiar with video editing, you may not be able to burn it to disc, but you can play and watch everytime.

Audio drop out and/or static sound Thanks to anyone who has taken a look at my issue with audio cutting out. JVC has always been a brand I have confidence in, and I believe I picked this camera up when those recording to an internal hard drive were out of my range. Last summer, I received a fantastic deal on some JVC Evarios, so GR-D250 duo would be used only as back-up, BUT, I have a ton of old Mini DV tapes -- never recorded over anything. I would find the heads needing cleaning solution highly unlikely. The first 250 recorded the bulk of those 150 or Mini DV's and worked like a champ. Because of legal depositions for lawyers and like, who may not want for me to call time-out in a deposition to switch tapes and the fact that eventually my first was going to give out, having a back-up and eventually multiple seemed like the thing to do. Having a couple of friends film some sports events I could my mix radio play-by-play I could with dual camera angles was cool. This same-year model second buy had sat in storage; The original tape the who sold it to me with 10 minutes of footage came with it. I could tell the battery was so much stronger after a full charge than my old one, but this newer D250 has maybe had 1/10 the recording time as my original. Whether listening to the camera speakers, piping the sound from the rear A/V jack or importing via firewire, it's the same. The video may not be perfect and may "spark" or "flicker" in unison with the audio that drops out,but not always. At times, the video seems just fine but the audio drop-out is akin to a loop and I could probably time it, which was what I termed as cyclical. Could one of my friends have dropped it or tipped over a tripod and not told me? Sure, but I would think they would have told me. One night, follow some high school hoops I was importing, excited at the prospects of some two camera angles mixing. Thought I may have had a bad tape, but ruled that out right away through trying multiple tapes in bother cameras. Apologies for my loquacious follow-up; I suppose if worse comes to worse, I could check eBay for a secondhand model. I've "misplaced" my original, but it will turn up; it's simply a matter of desiring to import all that footage, since 2008, with superior editing software and skill than what I possessed when doing so initially. Thanks so much!
