Problem recording video

When trying to record video, I press menu, "video in" then "normal" At this time it gives me a "no video signal" message. So if I then try "record" instead it gives me "MPEG Enc. Init failed" message. I then press the "ok" button and hit record button and it says it is "recording" But after this point I can not play anything back. It says "no files". Any suggestions?

In turning on my handycam, I get the message "movie recording disabled". How do I get out of this disabled mode?

It seems problem with hard disk that need to be formatted, please make sure you have copied/ transferred recorded files in computer or format HD will delete every thing on HD.
Press Menu button on lcd screen and select settings then select HD and select Format, it will take little time to format hard disk.
Now you can record in camcorder.

I get "STBY" message on my screen and the LCD is blank

Locate the record button on your camera and press it. When you hold your camera in the right hand it should be somewhere where your thumb is and normally has a red dot on it.

Press the FN (Function) to display PAGE
Press MENU to display the menus available

Select upward and downward arrows to select CLOCKSET then EXEC
Select the upward and downward arrows to enter the year

Changing my record mode from SP to LP

In order to change the menu settings you must 1.)turn on the power 2.) Touch FN to display PAGE 1. 3.) Touch MENU to display menu. Use the arrow buttons to scroll until the TAPE SET menu is highlighted. Press the exec button to reveal SP in RECORD MODE. Press it again to bring up a menu that will give you the choice of SP or LP. When you're done press the exec. button a couple of times and you're done. Do Keep that even though the tape will run 1.5 its normal length there are certain features that cannot be used while in Long Play (LP) mode. I have a sony camera but was looking at your model camera yesterday. I noticed that many of the menus and navigations were the same. I'm assuming that my directions will at least allow you to know what menu to look for. Good Luck.
