Unplug the cable turn i to plaay mode and rewind and see if you can play back the video, if you can play back the video then check your knob and turn it to download to computer, you have to have video capture on in movie maker or whatever software you are using. Once you connect you should be able to control palyback of the camera threw the software that is capturing the video, do not use the buttons on the camera, I also need to know if your usings windows vista or xp in order to tell you what you need to do to capture video to the computer. thanks for using fix=ya

Hi whilst trying to capture my footage i am getting a blue screen saying usb connect disconnect the usb cable before changing the setting. can you help?


The USB cable is the one used to transfer files from your camcorder to a computer. Make sure there isn't any cable connected to your camcorder.

I have a VT465 and the projection back ground is yellow and I can't get it to be white


If you are talking about the actual image that is coming from a laptop being yellow instead of white, then this is caused usually by a bad signal cable running between the computer and the projector.
To be more specific: All colours in a projector get made up in some way between red, green and blue. White is all of these colours at maximum, yellow is made by red and green at maximum but no blue. If your image is Yellow when it should be white, then the blue signal information is not reaching the projector. This can also happen within the projector or computer itself but is less likely. If your using a VGA cable (15 pin cable) then blue is run through pins 3 & 7 (positive and negative respectively), see if your cable is either missing these pins on either end or if they are bent, although it's more than likely within the cable itself. You can test this theory easily by trying to put something blue on screen, if the blue signal isn't getting through then it'll appear black.
If changing the cable doesn't solve the problem try testing the computer by trying to use a different one, and test the projector by plugging in a monitor or another projector.

If you are getting a yellow screen without sending signal and just trying to get the "no signal" or "no input" screen white, then this won't be the case.

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced 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.

Try dumping the RAM. To do this press the power button and then hold "Command, Option, P, R" before the gray screen appears. Then the computer will 'bing' and restart. Wait until it has 'binged' twice then let go.

how did you transfer the video from the card to your PC?

did you connect the camcorder to your PC or did you use a memory card reader?

if you can play the audio then what you need is the right video codec for the unit
try searching for video codecs through search engines

make sure that the software that you are using to play the video plays the file format of your video,

try using roxio, then connect the camcorder to your computer via USB, make sure that the drivers are installed, play the video through your camcorder then use roxio to capture it real time instead of the usual "copy-paste"

Ibm t43 laptop's bluetooth cannot find devices


This sounds like it is exactly what I scratched my head about when I first inhereted my T43 at work. If it is, you are going to laugh at how simple it issue is. IBM in their great wisdom made a custom control for the wireless network antenna and bluetooth antenna. Try:

Hit Fn+F5. This will bring up a window where you can control turning on/off each antenna. When you turn on the bluetooth, the symbol in the system tray should turn to blue and white and the little green bluetooth light just below the screen should come on. I hope this helps.

Converting vhs tapes to computer using camcorder


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 -
