Question about Quasar VM-L153 VHS-C Camcorder

2 Answers

Shuts off when eject button hit.

I am not sure what model of Quaser camcorder I have. I bought it around 5 years ago from Walmart. Used less then 100 hours. I went to use it after it sat for a few months. Everything seems fine until I hit the eject button. Then it shuts down. Tried to replace the battery and also to hook it up directly to the wall outlet. Everything ok until the eject button is hit again. Door will not open. It justs shuts down.

    I had it stored in my roll top desk. It seems like it may be a short. I do hear noice like it is trying to open the door just before it shuts off. I found that if I hit the eject button again a few times the power comes on. All the other functions seem to work without shutting down the camcorder. I can not get the door to open up and do not want to force it. Do you think it will be too expensive to fix or maybe something I can do?

    No it will not open the door when it is connected to the wall socket. I thought it may be a battery and tried that, but it is not. It acts the same regardless of where the power is coming from.

Sounds like there may be a short or something with the eject button. Does the door try to eject the tape before shutting off or does it immediately shut off when the eject button is pressed?

Also, how and where did you have it stored for those few months?

Please let me know about my questions and your best bet is to open it up and see if the connections look bad at the eject button or to see if there is any kind of build up in the camera.

    you should try taking off the outer panels and forcing it a little won't hurt it as long as you try to gently move it open the way it should open.

Why wont the game load?


some games run differently on different xbox's. Heres an example, I bought a xbox slim 3 years ago, my sister bought one this year. When Call of Duty: Ghosts came out I bought two copies. Both worked perfectly on my xbox but would run maybe 2 to 5 minutes on her Xbox. Dont waste your time calling microsoft. I think its $79 for a slim and like $119 for an elite. When i called they were going to charge me $99 for a slim because it was for their time. otherwise wait til a store has a deal like walmart had 360's at black friday for $100.

take out the batteries , push the reset button, then put batteries back and try again.

If still not working properly , then it probably should go back to Olympus, if you bought it a few years ago , its probably out of warranty.

You can buy a newer model like the vn-6200-pc , which has way more memory and more features for much much less then it will cost to repair the vn-100 or vn-2000 , f

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape


ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.
