Download Driver

Install then download and install a video program like movavi videosuite or ulead videostudio (i personally recommend movavi).

Plug in the camcorder and switch it on, put it on play/edit and play the video, press record or capture in the software and let it record!

once the video scene in the camera is done, stop the recording and do what you wish!

Intermitant failure of the firewire port

It's quite possible you have a FireWire port with hardware problems. The fix is somewhat costly, because it requires a logic board replacement. You need to bring your machine in for service.

Damaged Motherboard. My LG LCD RM-32LZ50 stopped working. I took it to the service and they told me that the motherboard is damaged. They don't have the replacement part. They told me that if I could buy...

I'm assuming they intend to replace the entire circuit board. The only place you are going to get the entire board is from LG or an LG certified repair center.
You do have another option however. Although repairing individual components on circuit boards is not for the faint of heart, it can be done. If it is minor for instance a break somewhere along the tracings it can be done a lot cheaper then replacing the entire board. The hard part is locating one in your area.

In any event I tried to include all the possible links that you can try for assistance.

The first link is probably what you need. It has a listing of all the parts for the RM-32LZ50 that are available . You will need to identify circuit board (pcb) that needs replacing. There is a total of 5 pcbs. The cost of these are $10.24, $13.26, $15.77, $22.27, $160.05.

The second link is the same site, just the home page so if you have any trouble with the first link use the second one. Click on the "Shop" button the right hand side then input your model#RM-32LZ50.
The third link is self explanatory.

Hope this helps.

There are three possibilities.
  1. The service center doesn't do component-level service on motherboards, so they want to replace the whole board because the DC jack is broken. Many shops work this way.
  2. Because of arcing and heating at the bad DC jack connections, the motherboard may have been damaged enough that it can't be repaired.
  3. They have checked over the board and found no damage to the power jack, but it still isn't charging. This would mean other problems on the board that they can't troubleshoot and repair. This is no reflection on the center. Only the board manufacturer has all the service information and specialized tool do in-depth repairs.
You have two choices.
  1. Take the computer to another shop for a second opinion.
  2. Let the shop replace the motherboard. If this is not an official Gateway service center but an independent, they don't have to get the board from Gateway at full price. There are several online sources of boards that could keep the cost down.

This works like a charm. "Replace the capacitors at location numbers C280, C302, C320, C323 - 100UF 35 VOLTS." I purchased the capacitors, cost me $1.07. Changed them all, that was the hardest part, took hours just to locate them. Burnt myself a few times, but by midnight, it was like new. So if you don't mind, doing something that would cost you over $500 by a profesional, I can assure you that this solution works. Email me if I can help,

Firewire port

If the physical connector is broken, replacement cost for that part is about $30.00 (connector is mounted on a circuit board which needs to be replaced.) If the connector is good, but the firewire interface in the camera is bad, repair involves replacement of the main circuit board, which is between $400 and $500. These are parts costs, they don't include labor.

Connection to PC does not work

Hello, yes I am aware of that problem. Basically one should change the so called VC441 Board. Luckily PAL version has almost twice cheaper VC441 board then the US version. For my account about 300 Euro. So, in order to repair the camcorder above mentioned board has to be replaced. If you need more info please advice.
