Question about Sony HDR-SR5 Flash Media Camcorder

1 Answer

When I recently played back footage I shot two weeks ago on my camcorder, the camera suddenly froze up (twice). I checked the hard drive, and it said there was no errors. Today, I was working with my camera, and it refused to record. In both cases, I took out the battery, and then it worked fine. I think this might be a battery issue. The camcorder was purchased at the beginning of August 2007.

    Do not understand how it worked without a battery - did you power it from the mains supply ?

Suggest you might want to get a new battery, they do not last forever.

The problem you discribe is a very very common problem and should able to be fixed for a reasonable price bey a good local guy if he knows how to adjust the tape path in a vcr as the tension posts on the right and the left side of the deck comes loose and knocks the tape path alighnment out . Now you say its dead now Oh boy that could be the dreaded sony PAN cap syndrom!!! Its the small panasonic surface mounted capd that all become leaky after a while and needs to replace many at a time or even in extreme cases the entire or mutible complete PCB assys have to be relaced.. Sorry to be the one to tell ya this man. But maybe you will be a luck one and only need a tape path alighnment!! Good Luck To Ya

SOURCE: HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

Hard to say without seeing it and more details of the video coding of the files you recorded but I think you shot it interlaced and you are trying to edit/view progressive, or the field dominance is wrong.

Have a look here, this should sort it either way

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.

Playing DV footage that was recorded on a different camera


Canon camcorders have a non-standard head position. Borrow a panasonic or samsung camcorder (those two are compatible) and backup your casettes on dvds. If you want them to be on minidv readable on canon camcorder, connect it afterwards and send video to minidv through your camcorder. It will then be alligned the way that suites your gear.

Either that or go to the professional service that does conversion from minidv tapes. That usually costs around 15$ per hour, so if you have 10 or more hours of video, the less expensive way is buying an entry model of panasonic camcorder.
