Your Pentax K7 lacks firewire (1394) connectivity, so a connection to a fireware jack will not be possible without purchasing an inexpensive Firewire to USB adapter . From the manual:
USB 2.0 hi-speed, AV out, HDMI out, DC in, cable switch, 3.5mm stereo microphone.
Video out: HD (1080i30, 720p30, 480p30), NTSC, PAL
Printer interfaces: n/a
The I/O (input /output) panel on a Pentax K7 camera.
You can connect a USB cable from the "PC/AV" on the camera to your computer's USB port with an appropriate cable to transfer image files for editing, etc. Additionally, you can send video directly to a TV with an appropriate cable via the camera's HDMI jack.
1. Did you try another USB port? It is possible that the USB port you are using is at fault. 2. To check if the camera and/or camera USB cable is correct, try to connect the SP-800 camera on another computer. Do not use a SD / SDHC memorycard in the camera at first, the software is loaded on the internal memory.
If the camera is not detected by the computer what you can try here is to try connecting the camera on a different USB port and check if it will be detected , but if still not detected if possible for you to try a different USB cable that will be better or if possible also try to connect the camera on a different computer so we can isolate the problem if its just the USB cable , the USB port or the camera itself that is bad...
Fist of all I like to inform in computer S-Video output of the camera usually does not fit to computer. Only if the computer has S-Video Input card it will be possible. However logic is simple. Digital Camera or Camcorders uses 1394 or USB connection to connect to the computer. You havent indicate what model of JVC you use, almost all JVC Digital Cameras come with USB connection option. All you need to put USB cable in between. If it asks driver, use the CD comes with the Camera or download from JVC's support website. http://support.jvc.com/
You are mentioning that you are trying to transfer video though USB port, that is not possible, you have to connect the to the pc through the DV port from the camera to the Firewire port of
the PC, if your PC doesnt have a Fire wire port, install a IEEE1394
firewire card in one of your PCI slots.
I'm sorry you're having trouble with this. I have put together a picture that shows where the mini-USB plug is supposed to be attached to the camera. I hope it helps. This picture actually shows plugging the AV cable into the receptical, but right behind it is the mini-USB port. This is where you connect the USB cable. It looks like you have to lift the flap on the corner to reveal the plugs.
What he probably means is that the IC that "Drives" the "Port' has been damaged or destroyed, a very common problem.
Due to the manufacturing method, IE: Surface mount compnentry, there simply aint no "Simple Soldering problem" fix, at all... the actual IC, must be replaced... but this isn't actually possible..(well technicaly it is possible, but real hard to do) so hence the only other "Fix", a board replacement.
Although ya DV outlet is kaput... If there is another output? say an A/V out? could you not use that as a work arround?
