Question about Samsung SC-D23 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Distorted Image I tried looking through other posted problems and solutions for this camera but I couldn't find one exactly like mine. Everything on the camera works great except for the fact that sometimes (most of the time) the viewfinder and lcd screen image (while recording) is distorted with horizontal lines. There are times, it's a clear image, but overall, this distortion is there. I thought maybe it was just in the viewing, but it records the distortion as well. One other question. How can I get recordings from the cassette to computer? Thank you!

If it records the distortion then i suspect the guides are out of adjustment or your capstand roller is pushing the tape to high on the guides. need to have a profession serviced.

Muddy image on screen and recorded


You are in luck. Sorry for the trouble but your model Elura 50 still has the CCD advisory from the factory for free repair. Send it in for CCD advisory before it is too late! When all functions are working but has distorted image in camera mode is due to CCD chip. Good Luck -James. for further assitance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

5 Grey Horizontal Lines across the screen during play back and distorted sound.


Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment going off. My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).

Multiple problems with camera operations.


I have been searching for a solution to the same exact problem for a long time. I just found this site recently and it has confirmed what I needed to know: 1. Buy a head cleaner to clean off the head (which records and such) 2. (If 1 Doesn't Work) Don't bother getting it fixed by a business (as opposed to a friend who would try fixing it for free) because they will charge $200 to $250 for it when it only costs around $270 from Sony now. So trash the camcorder and buy a new one. That's all I know of.

Picture flickers on and off when in camera mode only.


*************there will be rough stretched shapes occassionally. But mostly it looks like a black screen with flickers of white lines. If I record like this the image comes out exactly as seen*** A defective CCD.
