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

This can be caused by a few reasons. Your Firewire cable may be defective, The Firewire port on the camera may be broken or there may be an electronic problem within the camera. All of these will require troubleshooting to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't
