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.

How do i shut off recoreding


The same button you pressed to start the recording, must be pressed to stop the recording.
If the camera acts strange, you first have to look if the memory access light is burning or flashing. As long as this light is on or flashing you are not allowed to remove the battery. Only try switching off the camera, When the memory access light stopped burning or flashing, you eventually can remove the battery, to stop the camera acting in a strange way.
When you have had a problem with the camera, switch it off, and then remove the battery for a short time. Then reinsert the battery.
If your camera is switched on, you can change the shooting mode, by tapping the back panel (screen) and go to the logo's you see, to change it from recording video to taking pictures.
All details about your camera you can find in the manual. All Nikon manuals are online with Nikon USA.

I will never own another samsung again!

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

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)

Reviewing pics


Check the memory card, if you can. A card dock or similar on your PC or laptop. Try reformatting it if nothing is on it. Try another card. The cards can go bad.
This is assuming that the camera is trying to record images when you think you are taking them. I also assume you see an image in the LCD on your camera when you are composing before shooting and the camera acts like it is taking a picture. Do you usually have the ability to review what you just shot and it immediately shows up on the screen? Have you used your flash when this non-recording is taking place? Does it flash?
More info would be helpful.

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
