SOURCE: vcr turns on and plays but the picture lines on screen

The camcorder has a problem in that the heads are probably not locked in frequency. This is not an uncommon problem with older units. There are some capacitors in the circuit that controls the head speed that are defective. This allows drift in the speed of turning which will result in an uneven signal. This is not a trivial repair but the parts cost is minimal (less than $10). Look for a repair shop that works on camcorders and get an estimate. When I get these units the total cost usually runs around $150 for parts and labor. Realize that even with experience, this is a 3-4 hour job.

First thing to try is to run a mini-dv cleaning tape through the sytem, which you should be doing on a regular basis as recommended in the instructions of the cleaning tape. If the problem persists you will need to have it professionally cleaned/repaired depending on what ends up being wrong with it.
Thank you,

you may have a faulty camera there,,,or the vcr tape may be faulty and has spred some of the tape on the recording head try running a cleaning tape through the vcr first to clean the heads,,then use a new tape (not the old tape!) to try that out,, if its cleans the head up throw away the old tape so you never put it back in this vcr

My panasonic palmcorder is having video problems


First of all, try using a head cleaning cassette. Secondly, it is now 24 years old - I am surprised it is still working at all (or maybe you are having it serviced annually ?)

I can't get a picture on my television when I have my Viewcam connected into my VCR.


Make sure the Viewcam is connected (cable supplied) to an A/V input on your VCR. Set your VCR to the Line In or Auxiliary mode. Turn the Viewcam to Camera or VCR mode if playing back tape. Viewcam image should appear, if not call 1-BE-SHARP.

Transfering from camcorder to VHS tape


1. Using the A/V Cables provided, connect the proper end of the cable to the Camcorder where labeled A/V Jack 2. Connect the other end to the A/V inputs on the VCR. (Location of A/V jacks may vary by model) 3. You must activate the video mode on your VCR. Look for a button labeled: TV/VIDEO, INPUT, SOURCE, LINE IN, LINE 1, etc. (For more information, consult the User Manual for the VCR.) 4. Once you are able to view the camcorder playback on your television, press Record on the VCR and play on the Camcorder.

Watching tapes on TV


To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR). Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios: When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control. # When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode. # Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR. Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.

How do I make a copy from a camcorder to a VCR ?


Connect audio and video outputs of the playing camcorder or the audio and video input of the recording VCR. Set the recording VCR to AUX or Line Input setting. On most JVC VCR’s we use channel 0 for AUX. (F1 or L1 will appear on the front panel). If you have another manufacturers VCR, please refer to that owners manual for the proper setting.
