Fully charge the Sony digital Handycam. If the camera is not powering on or shutting down during the middle of a shoot, it is due to the battery. If the battery is unable to hold a charge (this occurs after a few years of use) you must replace the lithium-ion batter.
· 2
Press the "Menu" button if no audio is recording on the video camera. Choose the "Record" feature, then select "Audio." Oftentimes the audio comes (or is accidentally turned) off. Select the "On" option and exit out of the menu. Now all future recordings capture audio in addition to video.
·
· 3 Delete unwanted video files if your hard drive is full. When the internal hard drive is full you receive an error message stating the camcorder is unable to capture more footage. Bring up the "View" option on the camera, then select a video file you no longer want and choose "Delete."
· 4
Turn off the video camera and remove the battery. Wait a few minutes before inserting the battery back into the camera. If the menu or any other internal hardware on the computer is malfunctioning performing this reset corrects the problem.
· 5
Upload the video content from your camera to a computer via FireWire cable instead of USB. When using USB the quality is downgraded as it is unable to support the higher data stream required to upload videos. If you don't have a FireWire port on the computer (it is similar in size to a USB connection, but one size is curved and a "Y" icon is printed next to it) you will have to use the USB connection.

I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

I am trying to capture a video from the camera onto my computer using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 and the only message I'm getting is "Can't activate recorder. Try resetting camera". I have done this...


Firstly resetting your camera will not delete your recording.Try re-installing your software then try capturing. Secondly play the tape on your camera then engage the capture button on your computer

How can i install my web cam?


Hi,If you don't have CD for installation, Use the below link to download it.

(microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE)

Set Up and Use the VX-3000 personal web camera
  • 1 Install the software using the included CD and plug the LifeCam into a free USB port. For desktop use, place the LifeCam on a clear spot on your desk that's free of other objects, including cables. The camera should not be more than an arm's length away from you. For LCD (or similar object) use, push the center part of the camera's base upward, place the camera on the LCD and close the base around the monitor to secure it.
  • 2 Open the device software by clicking the Microsoft LifeCam icon on your Windows desktop. If no such icon exists on your Windows desktop, click "Start," click "All Programs" and locate the Microsoft LifeCam program in the list of programs there. After launching the LifeCam program, look at the image that appears. If necessary, adjust the camera to more precisely reflect your appearance. For best results, try to center the camera image on your head and shoulders.
  • 3 Click the video camera icon on the bottom panel of the LifeCam program to begin video capture. Video will begin recording, and you will see a "Recording Video" message beneath the live video image. To stop recording, press the same icon (the icon will have a red square with a blue background during recording).
  • 4 To begin audio capture, click the microphone icon on the bottom panel. To stop the audio recording, click the same icon (again, it will have a red square with a blue background during recording). To snap a photo, click the camera icon on the bottom panel.
  • 5 Access any of your captured video, audio or image files by clicking the folder on the bottom panel. The VX-3000 also provides the ability to edit video or image files using supported software. After snapping a photo or capturing video, click the "Edit" icon that appears beneath the thumbnail of the captured content.



  • Hope it helps.
