Question about Samsung DouCam SCD-5000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

6 Answers

TApe mechanism will not load tape, will not lower tape.

I need to repair this camera, the tape deck assembly is jammed, and I can fix it if I can get to it. I have tried to get a training manual for this camera, however I am not having too good luck in acquiring one. I have a service manual and it refers to the training manual, Samsung part number AD82 00001A. J & W parts claims they do not have one nor any of their suppliers. This camera is too valuable to scrap. Any one have any suggestions for the repair or where I can get a training manual?

    This camera is out of warrantee, and I am not the original owner, I am going to repair it, as that is what I do, however I need the manuals to properly dissasemble the tape mechanism. Thank you for the suggestion, however It will not solve my problem at this time.

    See previos postings -- Still looking for the Training Manual or a copy of one. I will pay for it if I can get it. Or tell me where I can purchase one.

  • Drtire Jan 23, 2008

    Thanks, that is what I usually do however on this particualar camera, there are a number of difficult areas to get to with a screwdriver, and there may be a simple solution that is in the manual. The Service manual refers to a special procedure to remove the surrounding case. I may say to hell with it and dive in. I do take poloroids and make copious notes as I take things apart, so I am ok there. Thanks for your suggestions.

    I have the service manual, and it doesn't give all the information. there are many areas where it refers to the training manual as stated in my first comment.
    thank you for the suggestion.

Hi

just talked with a friend of mine here and he says that the best way to save your camcorder is to manually dissasemble the deck assembly with a technician with you.

In this case there two of you working on the repair and if you find some components that needs to be replaced, you can buy that in any samsung service center, if you are lucky, those components are readily available but so far, they let you wait because those components needs to be shipped.

hope this helps you

You can spend a lot of time trying to track down the manuals and they probably won't tell you what you want anyway..
My strategy on mech problems is to dissassemble it all the way down to the mech so you can see it front and back with the cable to the load motor disconnected (usually have to disconnect everything). Run the load motor slowly using and external low voltage power supply of around 5 volts, and watch the mech operate to figure out what is wrong. Usually bent parts or missing parts or stripped gears.
Is your problem just doing the disassembly? Go slow and make notes and mark the cables. Yes, some of the screws are hard to find but usually nothing too tricky. Service manual should help here.
Hope Ya Fix It!

The best way is to bring the camera to the nearest samsung service center so that everything will be fixed it for you. Maybe you can enjoy the warranty of your camera.

I have a Luxman KD-117 DAT player that won't accept the tape. Any tape. I load it and the tray closed and a few seconds later opens up. Help please


Hi

I am probably a little bit late but as I own 3 of this model I could probably be of some help.

The main weakness is hardened grease in the loading mechanism, either the tape loading mechanism (the tray that loads the cassette into the deck) or the tape loading mechanism (2 extending arms that load the tape around the heads drum).

An other issue is the switch that detect the presence of the cassette. It is located on the lower right side of the mecha.

Last issue is a rotary switch that gives positioning information to the cpu during the tape loading sequence. Its gear often breaks.

If you are still interested in repairing this unit, one of the finest dat deck ever built, the first thing to do would be to remove the cover and see where the loading sequence stops.

Cheers

Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

My sony Hadycam vision CCDTRV118 the tape is stuck inside camera and can't remove it


Hello. First, do not force anything!! Secondly, make sure the battery is properly charged. Next, in playback mode, try to rewind or fast forward the tape--this causes the recording, audio, etc. heads to retract away from the tape and *might* free it if that is the cause. When you open the outer cover to trigger tape eject, do you hear the tape mechanism motor running? If you don't hear anything or the mechanism is truly jammed, it will require a tech to remove the tape and repair/replace the insert/eject assembly. Send the unit directly to a repair facility unless the warranty is still in effect.---Hope I was of some help.---Rick

Vcr keeps turning off by itself. can't load tape.


Take the top cover off & have a look at the deck mechanism to see if there is anything obstructing the tape from loading properly. Put a tape in & watch closely to see if it draws the tape in, lowers it down & then threads the tape around the heads. If this is not the case & there is nothing in the mechanism preventing this action then look to see if the head drum is spinning.There may be a fuult with the loading motor if the tape is not being pulled into the machine. If there is a fault with the deck then it is best to take it to a repair centre.

Cannot load tape. keeps ejecting tape when trying to load.


Remove the top cover from the VCR. If you have children in the house, look for any object lying in the mechanism. If this is clear, insert a tape slowly into the carriage & watch carefully if the cassette tape flap raises up & allows the tape to be lowered down into the mechanism, if not the flap lever at the side of the carriage may be broken. If the tape does lower into position, look to see if the tape is being pulled out by the guide arms, (normally 2 white poles) one of these may be broken. Check the half loading arm is also not obstructing the tape. If any of these parts are broken a new deck mechanism would be required.

GL2 - Tape gets jammed everytime. Eject lights up immediately


This problem is usually related to the Dew Sensor, Unfortunately you can not by-pass the dew sensor. I paid a repair to fix, but he could not. Canon must repair the dew sensor.
I have same prob. I just capture directly to computer since my tape will not open. I would be interested in buying cameras like this, i can use them to still monitor images.
