How do you reset the counter when shooting video?

The resetting of the counter is not a problem. As a matter of fact you can not reset it because it is meant to be continuous as long as the video is the same. However there is way around it. After recording your first part when you want to reset you go to 'play'. You play forward for less than a second and stop. When you go back to record the camera resets itself and thinks its starting a new video. It goes back to 000. You keep on doing this when you want to reset again. Normally in professional circles the time code should be continuous for editing with professional Non linear editing software that's why the cameras do not reset the time code. But you can get along the way I have told you here for your purpose.

Try first removing the battery and see if this clears the error.

How can I transfer my 8mm tape to my computer? I need to have the film on a flash drive or dvd.

Assuming that you want to do your video work later (editing,DVD burning)in your PC.

1.Your PC must have video capture device(either built-in or add-on).
2.Properly set your video editing software to able to capture video form your device.
3.Connect your camera to your PC in regular manner,like when you connect it to your TV.
4.Have your camera in PLAYBACK mode.wind the tape to the beginning of the footage you want to capture.
5.Open your editing software.turn on capture mode.
6.Start capture.At the same time,start playing back the footage on the cam.
7.When all footage were captured,click stop capture.
8.Start your editing work.
9.when complete,save it to some uncompressed video format like *.avi for later burning to DVD or converting to other format.

For beginners,I recommend Windows Movie Maker video editing software that should come bundled in almost every computer.It's fast,simple but effective enough for home-movie work.Once your project is completed,save your movie in original .avi format for later burning to DVD,etc.

BTW forget the old-school Linear Editing (on the tape) thing.It's slow,complicate and much less flexible than Non-Linear method.

Unable to load video to imac

Most cases, with apple product, I did not have much problem compare to PC computers. I'm not a Mac user but we do have hookup at the shp and simply we use iMovie program to edit and test equipment. Here is how we do it. 1. Set the camcorder at VCR mode and play short portion for a few time for operation. 2. open iMovie program, 3. hook up the firewire cable. If this procedure did not produce the connection, you may have a hardware problem. -James

Time code problem -- footage disappearing

Menu setting - the time code is simply resetting itself.  If you intend to edit your footage with NLE software this will be a problem, otherwise no issue.

Flashing lights

This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.
