Question about RCA CC6374 VHS-C Analog Camcorder

RCA VHS-C screen for sculpture

I wonder if you could advise me on how I can find 7' feet of ribbon cable so that I can move the screen away from the body of a RCA VHS-C cc6364 camcorder. I am building a interactive sculpture and would like to move the screen about 7’ feet away from the camera. I took the unit apart and the ribbon cable connects the unit to the 2 ½’ screen.

Is it possible to purchase lengths of such cables and connectors or
make a flexible cable with the printed circuit?

Or, just finding another unit and take the male and female connectors and somehow adding fine copper wires to make a long enough cable. Of course I am worried that the extra wire lengths will create too much resistance to transmit to the screen 6’ away. Also, soldering the copper wire into such fine mini connectors seems pretty difficult.

Looking for any ideas, thanks Vashember

The resistance of hte wire is not the major problem. While it will degrade the signal somewhat, the main problem will be outside interference. You would be better off trying to hide the camera closer to where the screen must reside and usinga ribbon cable only a few inches longer. You will need to find a service manual for that model to get the pinout of the cable.

Good luck.

    Check with a local service shop that is/was an RCA service center. It may be online somewhere too, but I'm not sure.

How to connect a Panasonic PV-V4520 vcr to a Samsung digital tv UN32EH5300FXZA


If your Panasonic has RCA and S-Video or even a SCART sockets then that is not necessarily old technology but still useful to view old VCR tapes. The TV is or may be the problem. As I don't have this Samsung TV model, I can only make a suggestion from past experience, as I used to be a cameraman/movie maker. Look at the rear or side of the Samsung TV. If you see RCA, S-Video or SCART outputs, aside from other outputs, such as HDMI 1 or 2 and also the laser output, but these are the least of your concern. Normally, VCR tapes are standard VHS, unless they are S-VHS, this format can only be viewed via RCA cable. If your TV has RCA INPUTs, not OUTPUTs, plug a good RCA cable, Yellow, Red, White in the INPUTs of the TV and then plug the same colours in the Panasonic OUTPUTs RCA sockets. Switch both devices on and then on the TV, press the Input button of the TV Remote and scroll the feature where it says VCR or RCA (most TV's have a picture of the 3 cables plugs) This is a bit tricky because as I said I don't have a Samsung TV so, I can only suggest what a VCR input would look like on the screen. Once you found the right input, press the OK button on the Remote and the screen should either turn black or is ready to display the video from the Panasonic. Press play on the Panasonic Remote and see if the film appears. In most cases, it's a simply straight forward operation. If the video tapes are of S-VHS, then you can still view both but if you had connected the S-Video cable instead of the RCA, you'll get a better picture quality, colour is more controlled and sharp. Alternatively, you could save all your old VHS movies, weddings, events, whatever you got there, by converting them to DVD yourself, so that the picture quality remains the same. You need a powerful computer, Windows 7 or an i5 or i7 would do better. You need a 1394 digital video capture card, also called firewire. Most older computers have it already installed, XP, Vista and early Windows 7. There are special connecting cables that are plugged at the rear of the VCR and the capture card, where one end is a firewire plug and the other can be either a stereo type plug or an RCA plugs. The choice is yours, but who doesb't want to save precious memories on DVD?

Need audio cable to go with 7 pin s video to 3 rca cable

If there is a BCOM computer outlet near you, you can just go pick one up from them. They're about 100 dollars. If there isn't, go to and order a cable from them.

Screen not Working


The back and forth motion indicates that the problem is in the interface wiring. Below is a link to disassemble the computer display screen and expose the interface wiring cable:

1) disassemble the lcd screen:

Follow the instruction step up to step 5, do step 5. Now look into the right side of the trough
exposed by removing the keyboard securing strip. There will be a silvery looking cable with a white plug on the end of the wire to the left. The white connector must be pushed completely into the white socket on the motherboard. Use a pair of heavy non cutting tweezers or needlenosepliers to push the white connector into the socket. You can turn the machine on and see if it is improved. If it still is not correct proceed to step 7 and stop following the dis-assemembly.

The flat cable that runs across the LCD panel must be connected fully into it's terminator connector. If the cable will wiggle from side to side using a gentle motion then the cable must be reconnected. Examine the connector that the flat ribbon wire is inserted into. There will be one little ear protuding from each side. You must pull the ears in a rocking motion toward the cable. Use a blunt thin device, like a paper-clip with a rounded end. You may have to use two of them, one keeping one side from moving and the other to push it's ear down. When the two ears are down CAREFULLY pull on the ribbon cable. If it does not move STOP. Try moving the ears in the opposite direction, if they move continue until they are fully loose. If they do not move continue. Again try to CAREFULLY pull on the ribbon cable. Assuming that the ribbon cable is loose, re-insert the ribbon cable into the ribbon cable connector. Keep the ribbon cable square with the connector. do NOT push hard, the cable will stop at the bottom of the connector port. When the cable is in the connector you will use the blunt thin device to push the little ears of the locking bar back into lock position. Now reassemble the unit to step 5. You can turn the machine on and see if it is improved. If it still is not correct, please advise.

I hope that his helps.

I have the Toshiba DVD/VHS recorder-player and was wondering do I HAVE to use RCA plugs to get it to work? or will any manufacturer's yellow/white/red video plugs work?

RCA plugs & yellow/white/red plugs are the same. They refer to cables used to transmit 'Composite' video (yellow) and stereo audio (red & white). RCA is the buzz word for the type of connectors they use. Probably invented by the company, RCA.

probably the lcd screen is broken (the one that you can see through the veiw finder) if this is the case it is not reasonably fixable. Otherwise it may be a connection that is broken and it is not getting any feed. If you give it a little tap and it comes to life breifly, this is probably the case. You can take it to a small electronics repair shop and they will let you know if its worth fixing or just using as is.

Diagonal lines

Hi It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set. Hope this helps, good luck!
