Please check Mini DV Cassette right corner, there is tab which has mark "Rec" & "Save". If this tab is open or at Save position, camera wont record any thing on this cassette. Just close this tab at Rec position and try. Hope problem will be solved.

Hi,

If you are trying to record to a tape and the display shows "Protection", you must slide the protection tab at the top of the tape to the "Rec" position.

PROTECTION flashing on lcd screen


there should be a little tab on the tape that can be moved (the one on my tape is red) if it is closed it stops the tape from being able to record anything and if it is open you should not see the protection on the screen

File failed message


The same thing happens to me when I try to record thru the "A/V in jack". It appears (my first thought) that the camera is trying to record to the internal drive and it runs out of memory really quick. But then, when I play it back, (the small 15 seconds or so) the audio and video are not sync'd. Most of the time at least. Very inconsistent. It also locked up and froze for me too. I had to remove the battery to reset it. Once or twice it recorded normal, (once when I reset the default settings and another time just out of the blue) - I thought I had it solved but it went back to "File Failed" after about 17-20 seconds of recording on the next record session.

I have the thing packed up ready to take back, but am looking for a solution so I can keep it..

Sound doesn't transfer from camera into computer


It most likely IS the .mov file. I recommend buying quicktime pro, $20,  which will allow you to convert the file, or if you get the free version of quicktime, and the video and audio play fine with it, You can use a screen recorder and turn off the "record external Mic" mode, and turn ON "Record Computer Audio" Once you're done converting (or recording) You can go ahead and edit, Hoped this helped- sincerely: animation508 (youtub username)

Protection! Flashes on screen


This camera has a history of the flexible harness located on the cassette housing tearing when it rubs against the frame as the housing moves in and out. The harness tears and opens the circuit that detects the tapes record lockout tab, the camera is preventing you from recording on the tape in error. This repair requires replacemnent of the cassette housing, not for the faint of heart. I wish you luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
