Converting vhs tapes to computer using camcorder

How do I do this? I've hooked up the camcorder (panasonic ag-dvc30) through the av port (red white and yellow connecors to the out setting on vcr) but nothing shows up on the screen. I've thumbed through the manual and can't seem to find an answer there. Is is even possible?

I think it's possible if you change a setting on your camcorder.  Turn your camera on to VCR and then hit the menu button.  Look at 4. AV In/Out Setup and make sure your DV Out is set to ON.  I think this will make it work.  If not, try changing your playback functions.  I think the problem either lies with the fact that the camera is using its RCA connections as outputs instead of inputs, or it's not sending the signal on to the VCR.
Hope this works for you -

My Panasonic DVC30 camcorder eats tapes on record and playback. How do I fix it?


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

HI, I recently purchased a dvx100b. I hook it up to my computer via a firewire cable. For some reason my computer doesn't seem to communicate with the camera.

Pages 54 to 60 talk about transferring to a digital converter box.Remember this is an analog camcorder that records to a tape,you will need a digital converter to plug into your computer.Computers only work in digital,analog signals are not understood.My converter was only $25.It's Very time consuming downloading to your computer,it's done in real-time.Minute for minute,hour for hour.I've got 50 tapes to convert and it takes forever..............!

Won't record to tape


Sounds like the tape isn't getting contact with the video head.  It could just need an adjustment.

Auto lock not threaded


sounds like the threading mechanism isn't able to completely thread the tape. there may be something obstructing the travel of one of the threading arms that pulls the tape around the head.

Problem with DV output on ag-dvc30


It is possible that you have a faulty firewire port or cable that is sending electricity through one of the pins that is not designed to handle it. If one of the six pins at one end of a cable is bent, for example, it can electrocute whatever is at the other end.
It's been a while now - did you ever get this problem solved?

Panasonic AG - 196


well danny,

that cam is an analog. well, as long as there are full size VHS VCR's there is going to be full sized VHS camcorders as well. The convenience of dealing with only one tape format is undeniable. Not having to convert the tape out of the camcorder and into your VCR, without wires or adaptors or losing quality can seem more important to some people, than the overall size of the unit. By utilizing the optional professional wide-angle lens you can cover all the bases. This unit is straightforward and easy to operate and the results are top notch too! A full-size VHS camcorder, the AG-196U is ideal for those just getting started in video, as well as for educational and institutional applications. It offers a 14: 1 two-speed power zoom lens, low-light capability, Audio/Video fade, has advanced recording and playback functions as well as digital effects to meet almost any application. Extremely sensitive 1/3" CCD with 420, 000 pixels provides outstanding picture quality, even under low-light conditions.


you'd feel like a professional with this cam.

cheers

yes. clan it now because particles that come off the magnetic tape or videotape can build up on the record/playback heads, reducing the signal quality.

hope this helps
