Question about Hitachi VMH710A Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
I have a Hitachi VMH710A Hi-8 camcorder that will not turn on.
I have tried powering it with the 6 volt power adaptor and with AA batteries.
There is absolutely no response from any part of the camera.
I have tried moving the switch back and forth between "video" and "cam", but nothing happens. The door also does not open when i move the eject switch, which should open the tape compartment.
Any ideas are welcome!
First of all if your still using Hi-8, I would spend the couple hundred dollars and move up to MINI-DV. Analog recording is ancient and not nearly up to current standards in mine and almost any videographer's opinion. NOw as for it not powering up. As far as i know this uses a "proprietary" battery. So if your battery is old that may be why it's not turning on anymore. These batteries run around 40$. I would not invest that kind of money into this camera. You would be much better served upgrading to today's standards. If you have any questions please let me know.

Please find above your service and repair manual. Please follow the troubleshooting procedures and you should be able to isolate and hopefully work towards a repair. With these very sophisticated and delicate units, home repair is really not an option, unless it is something very rudimentary. My professional advice, is to contact a local or head office, of Hitachi, in your case, and ask them for a referral to an authorised service center. Then, ask, them, for a "Quote" for the repair. This way you can make an informed decision, as to repair or replace. You see these days, often, we find that a repair can sometimes equal or exceed the cost of a new unit. Plus the new unit will have a warranty.
A problem such as this is usually a Power Supply problem, that may or may bot be caused by some other component "Breaking Down" and causing the Power Supply, to shut down, for safety reasons. and to avoid possible further damage.
