Hi, You might have a tape in the VCR that has the 'record tab' broken-out, prohibiting recording. IF you want to record, eject the tape and put a piece of scotch tape over the missing square tab on the bottom corner of the VHS tape. Good luck and let me know if that works for you.
I had a similar problem with a Cannon Optura PI and had to send it in. It was better, but I still have problems on occasion. If your intent is to transfer all the tapes to media, I would suggest purchasing Toshiba's DVD Video Recorder/Video Cassette Recorder. Model: DVR620KU.
I use a VHS-C Cassette Adapter to play my VHS-C tapes in and the dubbed them to a DVD. Works great. Unfortunately, there is no 8mm/VHS Adapters, since 8mm, Hi8, miniDV are different formats with different technical
characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the
intention to be mechanically compatible with past or current VHS
technology. Your best bet would to borrow a HI-8 Camcorder and then dub your tapes to DVD's using the Toshiba machine.
Here is a link to the Toshiba machine. http://www.testfreaks.com/dvd-players-recorders/toshiba-dvr620/
Have you tried different VHS tapes? If your VHS tape is too far rewound or at the very end your camcorder will display this problem. In a different VHS machine make sur the tape is rewound and then play the tape about a minute and then try it in the VCR.
If this doesn't work then there is a problem with the tape end sensors in your VCR.
Hello, Here's a copy from the owners manual: ■ Charging LED Red LED is on = Being charged Red LED is blinking = Charging error Green LED is on = Carging is complete
● If the charge indicator blinks as red, it indicates a battery charging error. - The battery is not properly inserted - The terminals of battery are dirty or damaged If the battery is inserted properly and the charge indicator continues to blink, contact the nearest Samsung Camera Service Center.
Another charging error is when the batteries are so depleted, they won't charge up to 100% anymore = red light doesn't go out and remains on for too long, means get a new battery.
It could be that.. you generally want a timebase corrector to properly record from analog tape to some other medium. But maybe not. Most tape-based devices also include a tension sensor, to detect the end-of-tape. If you're using tapes that are too old, cheap, etc. it could be that you're seeing this triggered.
I recommend trying the same VHS recording with a good quality, fresh tape. If it's still kicking off, you at least know it's due to the camcorder having issues with sync or something on the tape. If it works, blame the old tapes.
It's probably camcorder dependent, but I have done tape restorations using Digital8 and DV equipment, and have never known a camcorder to cut itself off due to dropouts or other problems on the tape -- mine just play through. So I think it's at least possible that it's just the tape.
the capstan motor of the camera is not running that why the power
display is blinking and when you eject the tape there a portion of the
ribbon that left..it is a poor connection of the capstan motor to the
main board of the camera....
it probably goes into a shutdown mode because of those dreaded pan capacitors!!. These are small surface mounted capacitors that dont just go bad in almost all camcorders but they will leak and be very very corrosive to the Printed curcuit board and eat up the pc traces!! The onlt way to see if this is the problem is to have the unit looked at by a quilifyed camcorder specialist and see if that is the problem? Good luck
The VHS PlayPak adaptor uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHS-C tape into the adaptor and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink-wrap has been removed from the battery.
