The Video Head of the camera was out of alignment. I dissassembled it and re-aligned it and now it works perfectly well.

My vhs c adaptor wont play my casette. It plays for two seconds then the power to the vcr turns off. Yes I have tried several vcrs


This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette.
If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards.
No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality!
Well worth considering.

I bought a panasonic cassette adaptor for my vhs-c tapes . it says svhs adaptor on the front of the box .will the ordinary vhs-c tapes fit in it and does the door open on the front or is it loaded from the...


You don't specify the adapter you have, but most load from the top. The main thing here is that VHS and VHS-C are both the same size of tape. Whether they are recorded in SVHS mode or not will not affect the adapter, just whether or not you get a picture. Theadapter only allows you to put a compact cassette (VHS-C) into a standard VHS VCR. The adapter will require batteries to allow it to place the VHS-C cassette tape into the proper position for use in the VCR.

How do you insert a video 8 cassette into the vhs cassette adaptor.


There's no way! They are two vastly different systems.
Video8 tape is nearly 1/4 inch wide whereas VHS tape is 1/2 inch wide - and thats just the begining!
Electronically, everything about them is different which is why Video8 came out from Sony in 1985 to improve on VHS systems and camcorder quality.
The higher quality version Hi8 followed in 1990 which made it's way into the professional market too.
I used the both formats for TV news and other programmes 1989-2000 when I went over to DVCAM, a professional compact cassette system also from Sony so I know the 8mm systems inside out.

Hi,
Do you put a tape in when you try to record or do you connect to a DVD / VCR so that it records onto the DVD or VHS?
If this is how you do it, then I will recommend you use a mini DV tape instead.
Hope this helps.

My panasonic palmcorder is having video problems


First of all, try using a head cleaning cassette. Secondly, it is now 24 years old - I am surprised it is still working at all (or maybe you are having it serviced annually ?)
