1.) set your pc to the correct norm (PAL or NTSC).
2.) if this doesn't help maybe you need to clean the head of your camera.
Take a short search on YouTube how to do it, there are dozens.
(NOTE: if you have recorded something with a dirty head you will not be able to play it back correctly even if after your head is clean!!!)

10 year old recordings on mini-DV tape JVC 60ME shows pixilations. This is worse on the first half of the tape than the last half. I have rewound the tape a few times and it does help some, but I still...



This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I've a JVC GZ HM400 and when i upload the videos onto the computer they dont play correctly.the video starts to pause while the audio runs perfectly.does anybody know what the problem is?i think it records...


You need a new video card for your computer. It is an easy thing to fix if you have a desktop, but there's not much you can do if it is a laptop. To make sure it is recording fine, take the A/V Cable and plug it into a TV and see if it plays correctly. If you don't mind if the videos aren't HD then take it out of AVCHD mode by changing the quality in the menu. If might play better on your computer if the files are not full 1080p HD.

My polaroid dvf 130 camcorder won't connect to my computer.the software it came with says it doesnt need a driver since I have windows xp what should I do?


this is what i did, and it worked perfectly. go out and get a sd card * any gig u want* as soon as u put the sd card into the camera, FORMAT IT!!!!. do that before u do anything else. don't format it on ur pc or laptop. format it on the camera. if u do that it will work perfectly. i don't know why it wasn't in the manual to format sd card first. but if u try to take pics first, that will mess up the entire system and u will be assed out a sd card. it took me 3 sd cards to figure this out. the cards worked fine but not in the camera. then i formatted it on the camera first and it works fine. the other sd cards i use for other things, i won't discard them but they won't work in the cam. but remember again GET NEW SD CARD AND FORMAT THE CARD IN THE CAMERA FIRST.

Colored, pixilated bars appear during playback


It is very common when the magnetic heads got dirty. Buy a Mini DV cleaning tape, follow the instruction clean the heads by playing the cleaning tape for a while. Record NEW video and playback to test.
Please know if you play the old video recorded buy the dirty heads, you may not get clear picture, because here is not correct data recorded on the tape.

Camera hooked to computor?


you need a USB cable that usually comes with the camera, and once you plug it in, your computer should find the software to upload the pictures on to the harddrive. Similar to how you would use a firewire to transfer videos. You can buy a USB cable if it didn't come with your camera

Burning videos to a dvd


This may be due to the fact that the Aiptek A-HD records to a quicktime format. There is a copy of quicktime in the disk that came with the camcorder. Now I don't know if this is quicktime Pro or not (I work on a mac, so quicktime is already installed, but the comps at my school are vista based) but if you don't have quicktime pro (you can check by right clicking on a video in quictime and if some of the options are unusable because they say "pro" next to them, you don't have quicktime PRO. It's $20 for quicktime pro, and it's very well worth the money. You can change format without losing quality, and so much more! Also WMM is not very HD compatible, you should put it in DVD format :) Hope this helped- (youtube user) animation508

Transfer from camera to pc


Well it definitely depends on what type of camera you have. Hopefully a digital camera.
Next you need to figure out if there is a cord that came with your camera that will allow you to connect to the PC. Most newer digital cameras come with a USB cable (a larger flat rectangular end that goes into the USB port on the computer, and a small flat almost rectuanglar end that goes into the camera). Some cameras come with a firewire cord so therefore you have to have a firewire port on your computer.
Finally, there may have been a CD that came with your camera that had the software on it so the camera and the PC can talk to each other. However, you might try just hooking the camera up to the PC, turning on the camera and seeing if it finds it.

Once it is hooked up, you should be able to open the My computer icon and your camera should be listed there. Double click on the camera icon and you should see folders that store your pictures. Double click the folders until you find your pictures. Now you can either click and drag them to your computer, copy and paste them to your computer...

Hopefully this will help some. Tell me a bit more about your camera and what came with it and I might be able to help a little more.

Bad capture from dv camcorder


I found a capture program called scene analyzer that seems to capture well but it still looks bad after being burned to cd. I read about interlacing possibly causing this problem and software to correct it. I already bought cyberlink power director for $80 and was wondering why they would not include deinterlacing software in their product?
