    Dear tech8,

    I was hoping for help to fix problem. I already knew of websites that I could buy schematics like you suggested. The site and manual that you suggested had a fee just like all the rest.

    Anybody who does servicing has to buy
    test equipment service data schemtatics
    etc Take it back to the place
    you bought it from Maybe they will supply you with
    schematic or fix it That manual will probably help you
    Why dont you go to some of the forums out there and
    ask someone to email you one if anyone has one dont
    try to blame me its not my fault that they want money
    for the schemaic its the way of the world

    you could check around for other
    similar models that dont work
    offer to buy a nonworking camcorder
    for parts you have several options you could
    check the forums as I mentioned
    before If it was my camcorder I
    would have gotten the service manual
    in case something else goes wrong
    with it I would have it I kept service
    manuals on my scope and most
    of my other equipment.If you dont
    want to do any of these things then
    take it to a sevicer and let them
    get the part you need and fix it

My samsung camcorder keeps showing eject when i try to record

Possible that the mode switch is jammed or the eject button is jammed. It can also be that the drive had not completed and so urges the motor to eject so as to complete the loading. failure of sensors cannot be ruled out.

Samsung SC-D363 Mini DV digital camcorder

sir if your camcorder is new then it has a warranty. we should send it first for their service because they have a spare parts for replacement and info. if your going to fix it by yourself then the warranty of that will be void. by the way the place for the service center for camcorder samsung in the philippines is in makati i think. i got a problem with my samsung just like your model and they told me that it is located at makati. hope that helps!

I had the same problem. The batteries do not last. When the battery becomes weak it can not run the tape so it tells you to eject it.
Buy a new bigger battery. I bought a 160 for ~$30.

Camcorder keeps shutting off when plugged in - how to disable power saver?


Simply remove the tape from the camcorder, and it should stay on. If you have a tape in the camera, the auto-shutoff is activated assuming you wish to record to the tape, regardless of the firewire connection to your PC.

hmmm, the only thing i can think of is to try the easy Q mode and see if it works ok , when it is in easy Q mode it puts the video camera at a default setting and you cant change any of the menu options until you take it out of easy Q.

hope this helps
