    I do not hear that noise when recording. I sent my camcorder for repairs and they've replaced the drum. Still hear the noise. Canon explained that all vh20 are like that.

Yes, all of the hv20's have this problem. My suggestion is to use an external shotgun microphone and attach this to the hotshoe. This minimizes the tape motor noise. Azden sells one on amazon.com that I bought for $60 that sounds much better.

Hi Taff,
I had this problem too. In the end I opened up the box ( a real nightmare) found a "computer ribbon" style wire between the tape bits and the amp bits and disconnected it. I can't use the tape anymore, but it doesn't make any noise either. Like you (in your solution) I hate the way it switches to the radio when a record finishes. I have a CD player connected to the aux play jacks - when the aux button is pushed in, the radio is disconnected and when the CD finishes, you get silence not radio.

Take the top cover off & have a look on the right hand side of the deck when your tape is playing. Is the tape riding up when it meets the pinch roller ( a small black roller on the right side)? If so the roller is either dirty or worn & would need to be replaced, this will cause your tape to crinckle & damage the tape.

Audio recording not very loud in play back


You may have a tape alignment issue, but, before you try anything rash, have the "control head assembly" cleaned. If you're not squeamish about opening this, you can then load a tape and look to see if the very top edge of the tape is "curled" over anywhere from .5" or greater. If this is the case, you'll need to fix what's causing that before you can do anything else....accordianman

Panasonic AG-455 Problem


The noise is most likely bad bearings in the video head assembly. No longer available from Panasonic. The b/w recording problem is most likely caused by a bad video board inside the camera. Unfortunately, the video board is also no longer available.

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running


the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.
