Problem with camcorder

When I turn it on the screen is black. The dispay is still there but you cannot see anything. You can replay tapes. I bought a new battery and it is still black. Every once in a while it will work for a few seconds and then go black. Can you help? Is it fixable or should I start looking for a new one?

Re: problem with camcorder

Sorry guys I seldom use my pc cause I am too busy with my works. It is confirmed they have already stopped fixing those bad ccds. As I've told others it is not fair.. hundreds of thousands of those camera with bad ccds are still on sale in the market, and if you're not aware of these recalls you will be fucked!!

On replay black horizontal line

Probably the video head has to be cleaned - you should give it to a local camera service center. I don't recommend using the cleaning tapes.

Hope this helps!

Bars across picture when replaying tapes.

The tapes were recorded in LP mode and the replay is set to SP mode. Switch from "EASY" to "P" and replay and you should be OK

The replay of the movies is "strippy"

Run a head cleaner for the unit - This happens to my camcorder, I have a cleaner tape I purchased I run and it usually clears it up.

perhaps you should turn off the camcorder, remove the battery, wait a minute, and then put it back in.

Black or blank screen

your older recordings will only play on a pal monitor / tv ; if the camera video is ok now ? your tape heads may be dirty , wearing out - or both ; try a cleaning tape first but - do not rewind cleaning cassettes , or the old grime will be put back on the cleaned heads and guides ;

There is no voice when I replayed the camcorders

What happens to the audio when you play the tape in another machine? Does it still drop out? Check the tape visually when it has no sound and see if the edge of the tape is creased. Also is the picture OK when the sound goes off. Does it jump around ans lose sync. If it does it means that the tape is mistracking. It's possible for the tape guides to go out of alignment but usually this is accompanied by picture breakup too. If you've never done it before don't attempt to realign the guides youself, you can really put it out of alighnment and it will damage the tape. Is the microphone built in or removeable? if it's the latter then check the connections and make sure nothing's broken. If there's a switch to go from internal mic to external mic see if it's switched to the proper position, it could be half way between internal and external. I'm opting for a tape problem, Either way a trip to a repair shop may be the best bet. BMW
