Question about Hitachi VMD965LA Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

Video Head Problem

It is recording perfectly allright as i have checked its recording on another camera but it is not playing its own recording so i am unable to watch mine recorded movies. While playing it looks like that some waves or moving on the screen or tape is sticking. I have used Head cleaner but no improvemnt. Local Hitachi Support say that i should replace Video Head but it is not available with them in Pakistan. It is brand new camera, only 5 ~ 6 tapes were recorded in three years. Any help will be appreciated!

It could also be tape path alignment, either case you will have to send it in.

When I playback what I have recorded via camcorder or through tv it is so snowy you can not watch it through a video player it is perfect


Have you tried cleaning the camcorder heads?

Try putting vhs-c cleaner in your local ebay..... such as (in UK) ....

Particles from the tape get lodged on the head over time. Its not special to VHS-c - its common to all tape products. Usually a good clean (say 3 - 4 times initially, plus one clean every 20 hours use, or so) prevents the accumulation of residue.

No Sound When Recording


Video camera has built in microphone which is on at all time until you plug in different type of mic then camera is switched to new mic. Audio problem may be on audio head or circuit problem. You can test the system by playing pre-recorded tape to see if it play with the sound and go from there. If it play but does not record sound, you have audio recording problem. If it does not play, I would clean the video head and audio head area good. -James For further assistance, request help at www.camerarepairjapan.com

Sound but no picture.


if you are able to playback previously recorded cassette and the picture is perfect then its not the head. then the problem is with the image grabbing section i.e. the CCD. May be its damaged and needs replacement.
