Distortion when recording from Sony Handycam 201


Is this audio or video distortion ? Either way, a good starting point is to clean the recording heads inside the camcorder, using a cleaning cassette.

Despite cleaning and demag my kenwood x-se7 deck still produces a distorted sound, any suggestions why appreciated


It could be a bad relay in the record circuit or work out heads. I would have to look at the unit to tell you more.

HHB burn it...I record on coaxial from Tascam DAT. 1st five tracks are great but the 6th track sounds horrible like there is a scratchy sounding distorted delay. It does this every once in the while . What...


I had this happen a lot on my Pioneer PDR-509, which is pretty much the same machine, when using marginal mongrel-brand CDR's. It's annoying but I have seen nothing to explain or detect it in real time so something can be re-recorded.

I have a samsung scd103 digital cam and when i record something it looks good on the screen while im recording it but when i play it back there are grey lines and distorted sound


Have you tried cleaning the recording heads? Use a dry type cassette cleaner only. It's just like a vcr head cleaner tape, only in the small mini-dv tape size.

I have distortion of playing tapes.


Degraded tape, dirty heads (clean with acetone and Q tip but don't get on plastic), dry coupling capacitors.This assumes that the distortion that you refer to is dirty or fuzzy sounding audio.
If a new tape, recorded and played back, sounds ok then your electronics are in good shape. That means your tapes are junk. If cleaning heads takes care of it, well that's pretty obvious. If your capacitors are dried out you will need to bring it in to a repair shop.

Distortion!


did you record them on the same unit?
It may be an alignment problem.
If it's the same unit, try cleaning the heads.
There are dat cleaning tapes too, but they beat on the heads.

Luxman DAT Recording problems


If the tapes you are using are "tight" it may be causing both the drop out and rew problems. Always a good idea when you buy fresh recording media to ff then threw it through to ensure that the tape is layered flat. they can tighten up in transit sometimes in shipping from manufacture. The unit will need some service work done also. A head clean could also help with the drop out. Use a Chamois tipped head cleaning tool to do thisusing iso alchol only AND A VERY GENTLE APPROACH. The drum heads themselves are very small and VERY FRAGILE!! Easily broken if you do not clean the correctly. Take it to a vcr/video camera tech for a clean and service of the tape path.

Problems with playback of HI8 tapes...


What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
