Mechanical problem "C.EMG" from my SC-A30 camcorder
for all those who try to fix a samsung camcoder with a mechanical problem in which the message on the display is "C.EMG", thie is the solution :
the problem is caused by the socket through which the axle of the cabestan motor passes through. the socket is fitted in the aluminium case of the motor. as it is known, aluminium suffers a process of seasoning/ageing and the bronze socket is no longer fitted in its original position. The socket moves towards the exterior and the cabestan, which consists of a magnet, gets near the 6 coils of the motor, starting a retardation effect.

Well that is like you say an old camera, mind you 8mm is still far the best and safest way to store your valued films as it has kept the data on those tapes longer than any DVD ever did, remember unlike we thought 10 years ago a DVD only has around 8 to 10 years life span, we are finding CD & DVD productions that are over 8 years old just wont play any longer.
Kodak put a report on the net 7 years ago that they found even some quite costly DVD recorded media had gone blank and refused to play after a very short time in storage.
I think you ought to look around Ebay, find a nice HI8 digital camera, put your loved tapes in that, plug the new Firewire cable into the camera, and your PC and download your treasured items to another media like DVD.
Keep your 8mm tapes in a draw safe though because they will out-live all DVD recordings I can honestly say that.
