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.

Conversion vhs to dvd


I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)

*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.

Camcorder won't record


Check the tape and make sure the record tab is still on the tape and has not been removed. If the record tab has been removed then use a new tape for recording as the unit will not record. This tap is usually on the lower left end of the back of the tape. When the tap is present it closes a record mode switch letting the system know the tape is able to bv recorded on..

I have a Sony DCR-HC17E. Suddenly LCD screen went blank... What can it be?? can isolve the problem without going to sony?


Most likely, you can not, ribbon cable connecting LCD assembly to main board is broken and it comes as hinge assembly. So, you will have to buy at list the part from sony.

I video taped a wedding and am trying to copy from my camcorder "VHSC" to VHS RECORDER - PROBLEM IS I AM GETTING AUDIO BUT NO VIDEO when i try to replay from vhs tape on VCR


I can only believe that you did not connect everything (the yellow video cable) correctly.

Tape to tape copies are normal and typical. Please consider retrying - and just do a few minutes of test video to confirm that it is working.

If you were doing a digital translation, I could understand a problem - but VHS to VHS should be a straight copy.....
Let us know how the test works. (BTW, I had a bad quality video cable - and had to replace it with another - which worked (and everything would display on my TV but would not copy onto another tape. My expert said that a copy protection thing in the record mode of the VHS recorder was the issue - ONLY a strong signal will be copied.

Fix it


This is not a job for an inexperienced person. The case alone could have many tiny screws and even if you did disassemble it, there are delicate sub-systems and ribbon connectors to deal with. Be advised to take unit to qualified pro technician

Record from a VHS player


This is an easy one. It took me a while to figure it out too. You are on the right track but you need to use the remote control. You will go from record/pause to record and of course you have to use the mini to triple RCA cable that comes with the camera. I can't remember if there is an internal setting in the menu that needs to happen but I don't think so.

Convert miniDV to VHS


You use the mini to triple RCA cable with the camera and go into the menu and make sure you are on A/v out instead of headphones. You just hit play on the camera and record on the VCR and Whala, it's done.

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.
