This is most likely caused by a damaged or misaligned video drum and can usually be repaired. The part you need is available. However, it's expensive. About $200.00 and not a user serviceable. It will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

    Thanks, Rick! This camera is now 15 years-old. Guess with that cost, I could buy a new Sony HD camcorder for under $800. Too bad, the camera was the best low-light camera I've ever had.

    You could probably sell the camera for parts on EBay for $600.

I have a 1994 plymouth voyage se and it will not strat. It tell me to check gauge light comes on. what should i do or what does that mean?


Turn key to on ( not start) then off, then on, then off, then on and leave on, and have a pen and paper ready to record flashes of "check engine light". It will flash then pause between second number of 2 digit code. Then a short pause and flash again, pause, then flash. For example: if it flashes 2 times, then pause, then flashes 2 more times, that would be code 22. If it flashes 3 times, pause, then flashes 5 more times, that would be code 35. As I said, there will be a short pause between 2 digits, as well as after number. Write them down as they come up and get back to us with those codes for advice. When you get code 55 ( 5 flashes, pause 5 more ) that means end of message. Those codes should point everyone in right direction of trouble spot.

Can't erase?



Do you mean it will record new material but not erase the old, or that it will neither record or erase? Can you play old recordings?

Try removing and reinserting the flash card. If that doesn't fix it, try a new flash card. If that doesn't fix it, you need to take it to a qualified technician.

My 2003 H2 engine light flashes but no trouble code.


When the light flashes it means you have a catalytic damaging misfire happening.. Most likely a coil or spark plug issue but could be something else. Get it fixed ASAP because if you toast your cat its going to get expensive

Check engine light flashing a code. what does this mean


Please visit http://www.troublecodes.net/neon/

for clarification of your error code. But I strongly believe you fixed a low rated fuel pump.

also from your explanation you got code 55 which means no error code was recorded.

Rate this please.

Can this model record without a memory card?


This model comes with 8.9MB of flash memory built in, which means you can record without using a memory card. Even when using flash memory, however, you still need to set the correct date before recording. If you do not set the date, certain functions may not operate and proper image recording may be impossible. Also, folders created automatically by the camera will not be named correctly if you do not set the date

Can I save images I record using an uncompressed (TIFF) format?


Yes. When displayed, an uncompressed (TIFF) digital image is clearer and higher quality than a compressed (JPEG) image. You should remember, however, that it takes longer to save an uncompressed image, which means that the recording interval between images is longer. Recording Interval with JPEG Format (Compressed):?2 seconds (3072 x 2304, Normal) Recording Interval with TIFF Format (Uncompressed):?65 seconds (3072 x 2304, TIFF) • In the TIFF Mode, you cannot record until the save operation of the previous shot is complete. • The above times are based on save operations using a Panasonic 64MB SD memory card. • The above times are approximate and for reference only. They are not guaranteed. • The actual time required to store images depends on shooting conditions and the memory card you are using.
