Question about Panasonic D-Snap SV-AV100 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I purchased this camera from the US and I live in Europe. Unfortunately, when I try to copy to my DVD recorder, I just get a rolling black and white screen. Is this to do with the NTSC/PAL incompatability and if so how do I go about getting a good colour picture. Thank you in advance.

    I have tried connecting the camcorder to an older DVD player as well as to the latest HD Panasonic DVD player and TV and I still get the rolling black and white picture, so I feel it must be an NTSC/PAL problem. I just need to know how to cure it. The name of a good converter perhaps?

Hi,

Yes this is certainly a NTSC/PAL incompatibility problem. You bought the camera in the states so it will be NTSC. You need to either set the Video output to NTSC on the DVD player if it has that function. If not then you will need to convert the video to PAL on your computer.

If you have to convert the video to PAL then I recommend that you use Total Video Converter 3.5. Click on the link below and download the program and install it. Link below >>>>>

If you decide to use Total Video Converter let me know and I will provide a key to unlock the full HD version. T.V.C. is an excellent program which allows you to strip audio from video, convert movies to mobile phone content like 3GP for example and a miriad of other things you can do with the software also.

If there is anything else please let me know.

Regards.

Try to download them into a computer and see if the images are seen into it ...and if yes..burn them from computer cause I suspect just an incompatibility between the 2 devices and not a NTSC /PAL iaaue ..
even so ..into the computer you will be able to convert them into the kind you need.using Nero to burn ..or a converter ..

Try to go under the settings in the dvd player. Be sure all the setting are set up according to your TV.

Sometimes if you dont have it set to N. American standards it can output like that. Be sure its set to "NTSC" if you live in N. America or Japan. If you live in Europe be sure its set to "PAL".

Let me know If this is not a issue in comments and I will help you further but I think this is it.

Dvd recorder has copy protected message


Hi,

the tapes that you can,t copy are protected, manufacturers used to put a high pitched frequency on the tapes themselves, which would in theory cause a scrambled frequency. the only suggestion i have for you, is to play the tape onto a television, and use a camcorder to record the image from tv to camcorder, then camcorder to pc, and use some good editing software to create the dvd.
alternatively, you could try using a second dvd player, and use your recorder as the second device.
The final but more expensive option, is to look for a way to input the recorder, direct to PC. which you would use picture out, to graphics card input, and the red and white ( Audio ) for the stereo Sound output. does your player or tv have An spdif connection or similar, you may be able to output to camera, rather than to dvd.
Where theres a will, theres a way, but these are a few options.

Only black and white


If you are playing different region dvds, they can be of different color formats also
(US = NTSC, Europe = PAL). If your television is not multi-format then non-compatible
DVDs will play black and white. The solution is to purchase a mutli-format TV (accepts
both PAL and NTSC formats)

DVD output from video camera is in Black and white


Did you check the device the camera plugs into to see if it could be the problem. The video input might be dropping the color burst signal.

I've purchased a philips dvd videoplayer, dvp3350v/05, with the aim of being able to copy from video to dvd...having read the manual though, it reads like the only copying it will do is from dvd to...


The DVP3350V/05 is a DVD player / Video recorder combi, so will only play DVDs, not record on to them.

You will need a Philips DVDR3510V or DVDR3512V, to record from VHS to DVD.

www.cheapestelectrical.co.uk should have them in stock, if not contact them for availability.

Also, most pre-recorded VHS tapes are copy protected, so you may experience picture rolling and colour fading in & out on any copies you make.
Any VHS tapes you have recorded yourself will not have this copy protection, and will copy ok.

It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.
