Problem with screen on camera.

Got my video camera about 5 years ago now was working fine but its not used often, So im not sure if its just old now and not working.

the problem i have is that when play videos / play the videos through the television, 3 thick 'grey bars' appear on the screen as if a cables been pulled out or not in properly. not sure if its the camera but all the tapes are doing the same and they were working fine before.

any help would be apreciated, thank you.

What you are seeing is the result of "digital dropout". This is usually caused by dirty heads. You can try to use a cleaning tape, but those often do not work. A professional cleaning will clear this up. A word of caution though: it is easy to mess up the alignment of these units if you are not trained on this type of repair. Please do not attempt any repair other than the use of a cleaning tape. The potential for additional damage is too great for any DIY attempts.

If the cleaning tape does not resolve the problem, please update this with your location so I can try to recommend a repair facility close by.

Thanks,
Dan

Sound works physical camera works but will not display any picture just a black screen.


it is probably the factory defect. a number of these were sent out with some problem internally that caused the cameras to displaying picture. there was a free repair for it if you just sent it in unfortunately the time limit ran out only a year ago, i was lucky enough to send it in just days before it ran out. aside from that, im really not sure what you could do besides pay to have it fixed.

Vidoe option on camera used to work, but now: 640(fine) is not available


Hi

I think to work on 640 fine you need a much higher memory stick, I use a 2gb in mine and it is fine (that is when the camera works) .You get 24 minutes or more on the 2gb stick and that is at 640 fine.
