Question about Samsung Video Cameras

2 Answers

Blurred image Most of the time the image through the viewer and CCD works well. At times, when switching on cam mode, the image is streaked and blurred. I have tried cleaning the heads, removing battery and switching between modes, but cannot rectify fault.

OK, when you say quality is poor, how are you judging this quality ?
EG, are you hooking it up to a decent TV and watching it back, or are you pulling it to your PC via firewire and watching it there ?
If via firewire on a PC, you may be experiencing interlacing issues which make it look worse.
In low light conditions I know the stuff I take looks a lot worse, it may just be that. Just step outside and take a quick clip as a comparison.

Hope this may help;

Regards,

Optic viewer blurred image


Not much that you can do with that, try adjusting the small focus lever on the underside of the viewfinder, as this might fix the blurred image, your lucky that you didn't, break something on the camera.

Green & Purple blurry images


In all these cases it appears the CCD (image recording circuit) has absorbed tiny amounts of moisture. These circuits are known to have been manufactured improperly. The only solution is replacement of major circuitry.
