Question about Aiptek A-HD 720P Flash Media Camcorder

Recording using A/V in jack - 18 seconds max allowed

When I record from our PS2, it records funky. First, if you let it record it will stop at 17-24 seconds or so. Then sometimes if I record small bits, it plays back with the audio ok, but the video is in slow motion and off track with the audio. It actually crashed during playback and I had to take out the battery to get it to turn off.

What's the deal? I want to record 30 min or so like it says you can...
Thanks

    i've used this camera alot and its done the job.
    i've tried to put the quality down, which shouldn't have been the problem(its in HD)
    I've tried new TV OUT cables
    Whats the deal?

firmware update fixes the issue

I have found it records TV programs pretty well, except for jerky motion every few seconds, but the video game problem is unique and inconsistent, meaning that with a PS2 it recorded fine a few times but failed almost every time at the 17-18 second mark. AND the tracking is out of whack as stated above. With the Wii, however it is seamless beauty with endless recording so it seems it is unique to the PS2.
I love this site by the way... thanks to all involved in this problem.

Well there could be a couple things- A. there is a problem with the camcorder's software, which will need to be fixed by a LONG phone call with Aiptek Support B. You could be using the wrong component cables for your TV C. You could have the quality set TOO high for your TV's (The PS2 is NOT HD) I recommend DVD quality for this
Hope this helped, sincerely- animation508 (youtube username)

    do you have the right type of SD card in? I would reccomend an SDHC card, as opposed to a normal SD card.

Tape shows last 5seconds of previous clip before recording next clip


I'm not familiar with your particular model, but many cameras of this type have a "quick review" function that allows you to see what was recorded for the last few seconds to verify that all is well. This is critical in broadcast situations where you only get one shot to get the video. This is a quick way to verify that all is working without having a blank gap in the recording caused by an inaccurate rew/play/stop/rec sequence.

Check the manual for this "review" function.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?


Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.

I can't start recording.


# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
