Question about DXG Technology Video Cameras

1 Answer

Took our DXG camcorder to Florida last Sept. It was working fine, up the point when we were in Florida, when it stopped working. I could turn it on, but it would shut off right away. I took the batteries out and noticed that the battery contacts looked to be corroded. I think the humidity and the salt in the air may have caused the corrosion. Should I send the camcorder in to be fixed, or is it somthing that we can do at home? Please advise. Thanks: Dave

If you can clean the corrosion off down to the metal, you will be ok. Spray some electrical contact cleaner on them to flush off all the chemicals, and wipe them dry with a soft cloth. You may have to use some fine grit emery cloth to get all the corrosion and oxidation off the terminals. Then reclean them good. Corroded and oxidized battery terminals are the number one problem with digital cameras, since they use such a low voltage, and it's extremely critical to keep the contacts clean and perfectly conductive.
Cleaning the contacts should get you going again. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa.

I just got my camcorder and it says I have to use windows XP etc. I have a Mac computer . What do I do now? Does that mean I can't use it?


It seems to be doomed... Maybe. Few options are out there luckily. You can design a fishbate out it, find drivers that work with WIN 7 (I couldn't), find a laptop that has the xp and the software to use your video/still files or hey, buy a "new one of these monsters for 79.99." http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-camcorders/dxg-quickshots-dxg-588v/4505-6500_7-34534364.html
Kidding and truth aside. We must consume in order to survive - thus buy some new stuff.. Cheers

I bought a used dxg 587v camcorder but did not get the cd-rom with application software. Can I down load software or do I need cd-rom and where are these items available


Here is the Manual for your DXG-587V Camcorder: DXG-587V HD User's Manual

I could only find the drivers for the DXG-589V Camcorder, and since I don't have a DXG-587V I can't test if the installation works or not, but it is worth a try. Here is your driver download: DXG-589V

Install the software after you download the driver. Plug in your Camcorder after the installation is complete. Your operating system should recognize the Camcorder and install the drivers.

If this driver doesn't work for you, you can contact DXG Customer Support to see if they can send you a Driver Disk, or a link to a working driver: http://www.dxgusa.com/online-help

DXG-565V Flash Media Camcorder: my DXG -565V Flash Media Camcorders sd slot wont e...


There is a spring that puts pressure on the SD card. It is most likely stuck.

You will need to fish around with a straightened paperclip, but be careful not to bend anything or the slot won't work properly any longer.

this has happened to me a few times and it's always the same fix...the spring is jammed and needs to be coerced back into place.

Hope this helps!

Snapper push lawnmower worked fine last summer thru Sept. took it out today and can't get it to crank. Any suggestions to crank lawnmower after it sit up for 6 months?


Your carburator has old fuel that has turned to "varnish" essentially. It must be removed and cleaned. Next year, run the fuel all the way out so there is none left in it to turn to varnish.

I HAVE A DXG DIGITAL CAMERA. WHEN I HOOK UP THE CAMERA INTO THE VIDEO INPUT THE PICTURE IS ALL JUMPY & UNCLEAR


Here's my problem: I recently bought as in today a PNY Optima 16 GB SDHC Card for my DXG-566V camcorder. When I inserted the card into it's SD card slot (which I assure you I did correctly), and powered up the camcorder, the camcorder didn't recognize the SD card, as it was still running off of the camcorder memory! Now I know the camcorder is just fine becuase after that I inserted my PNY 8 GB SDHC Card and the camcorder recgonized the card.
Please help me out here!

Is your SD card formatted. I had a similar problem and then fixed it. They have pretty good phone tech support. Get the phone number from online if the above doesn't work a you can format the SD card.

DXG 506V Will not turn on


I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
