Question about VCRs
I have two old U-Matic video tapes (one FUJI H521E KCA-30 and one Sony KCS-20K. I have no means of playing them and would like themto be transferred to DVD; is this possible?
SOURCE: Tapes not playing
Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box

AG-DS555s are plagued by capacitor failure problems on all the video boards in the deck. Replacement of all surface mount electrolytic capacitors is the solution, but before you try that, give the heads a good cleaning. It's amazing what a miniscule amount of dirt on the heads will do.

Sony DCR-HC21 has a multi-AV in, your Hi-8 should have a mini (4 band) to multi AV out. The cable would look like a stereo headphone cable on one end with thre RDA type plugs on the other end; red, white, yellow. The mulit in on the DV would probabaly be the same type connector. Youd have to use a coupler set for the two multi-av cables to bridge video to video and audio to audio. Come out of the Hi8 into the miniDV recorder. You should not need a Dazzle unless you want to transfer to a PC for editing before moving video back to a miniDV tape.

left side image freeze indicates that the tape supply guide needs adjustment. best done by a technician with proper test equipment.

No, this U-Matic VO-9800p ist a PAL Model, it only Records in SP and High Band Mode. If a SP Tape is inserted, it Records SPMode, otherwise High Band. Low Band Mode is only for Playback !
(Low Band Playback is of very poor Quality, do not use this for Digital DVD Captureing )
