I'm sorry that the video quality of the camcorder is poor. Sony camcorders will automatically adjust the shutter speed based on the lighting conditions. When video is being shot in low light situations, the camera will slow the shutter speed. This is normal operation and is not a service issue. To prevent this issue, record video in locations where more light is present.


You may use the White balance feature and check the operation. Refer the page 71 for more information. Refer the URL to download the Operating Guide:

You may also perform a power reset and check.

Performing a manual power reset

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Disconnect AC power adapter.
  3. Remove the battery pack.
  4. Remove the lithium button-cell battery.
  5. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds.
  6. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position.
  7. Reinsert the lithium button-cell battery.
  8. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack.
  9. Turn on the camcorder.

Sanyo xacti digital camcorder screen not working when opened out


Hi!
It's most likely a damaged LCD cable which goes through the hinge - happens to many camcorders. You will have to contact your local Sanyo service center. I replace these cables for Sony camcorders every day.

Sorry for the bad news, but hope this helps.

Brightness of monitor changes itself to quite dim


YOu can go to the monitor settings to make sure nothing's been changed. It could be an energy saver issue where the display dims after a certain period of time, and you can reset it to longer period of time so it would stay bright for you

Ideal settings for Samsung LN-T 4234H


sure, lcd tvs need to be tweeked depending on the light in the room the darker the worse the picture. so try this
from standard:
picture: 85 to 95 %
brightness: 45% or adjust the black of the video to the black of the pilar bars to equilize them.
color: 32 to 38% or until the flesh tones are not so hot
sharpness: low 10%
tint: always to center
color temp: cool1
back lamp ( if avalible) low when lights are dim, high when lights are bright.
the problem with LCD is they don't look so good with dark sceens. the contast ratio is very low. natively 3000:1 aas compaired to plasma or other direct view TVs. the LCD is back lite and the thin materal of the LCD can not completely block the back light from coming thru. there for the complete "black screen" is illuminated "blue". the best thing is to keep the lights on bright in the room for the best picture.

Canon Vizcam 1000 fading fast


Hello Pelota, Here is what is happening, most web cams are charge-coupled device CCD type image devices they work by caturing the image as it changes the charge along the surface of a capacitive matrix. Over time this matrix begins to break down. This is what you are experiencing. The cheaper the camera the faster the breakdown of the matrix. It can not be helped. The fact is as all of these digital cameras get older they will begin the dim and have poor color resolution due to the CCD matrix decaying. I hope this helps.

Plasma TV color problem


Sometimes, poor picture quality occurs when having activated an A-VHS camera or camcorder connected and having connected another peripheral at the same time. In this case switch off one of the other peripherals. Also, The norcent has a known problem with progressive scan - when connected to a progressive scan source, it yields a distorted screen with dual images and messed up colors.
