Question about Sony DSR-11 DV / Mini DV VCR
I have a bakers dozen Mini-DV tapes that were supposedly recorded in PAL. I am trying to watch them, and there is no picture, just a blank screen. The deck is able to playback other tapes that were recorded in PAL, so I don't know what the problem is.
For some reason, when I push play, it says NTSC (even though it's switched to PAL). But when I flip the switch to NTSC, it says PAL on the screen. I'm stumped. Does anyone have an explanation or a solution? Tapes don't play on a canon camera either.
You also need a PAL television or monitor to be able to view them. If you don't have a PAL compatible monitor or TV it will not work because the resolution and scanning is very different than an NTSC monitor. Your canon camera is probably designed only for NTSC use if it was sold in North America and can't be used for PAL use.
