Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When playing back a recording it almost seems like it is playing back in somewhat slow motion, sort of like a tracking issue. When I play back a previous DV that worked fine it now shows the same things. Can you help please?
Don't know about the slow motion, but the noise is usually from dirty heads. Just like a cassette player it needs them cleaned periodically. Dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub over the entire path the tape takes. You'll see a little block that actually reads the tape. Thats what you need to clean.
Make sure you eject the tape and remove the battery while the tape drive is open to clean it. Rubbing alcohol dries fast but give it an extra ten minutes and check it again.
Video recorder while the heads were dirty will not change however new video should be clean.
You may also have a bent tape carrier that is putting your video off track. It needs to be pushed or pulled to realign it.
It it's not the cause though, this can make playing back the earlier tapes more difficult since they will read and record in a slightly different part of the tape.
