To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR). Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios: When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control. # When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode. # Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR. Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.

There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. Cystal-shaped spots, black spots, and bright spots of light (red, green, or blue) can appear on the LCD monitor for a variety of reasons. These spots are not being recorded on your tape. But if these are distracting your videotaping, consider taking a slightly different shooting angle and the spots should go away.

There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.

For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.

Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.

A couple of things could be causing the problem. When recording, your movements with the camera could have been too quick or jerky. Try putting the camera on a flat surface or on the tripod and record for 30 seconds. If the playback picture is still bad, then it's possible that the video heads are dirty or worn out. Consult your nearest RCA authorized service center for head cleaning or replacement.

There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. This sometimes occurs when there is a lot of contrast between the background and the subject or object you're shooting. Try shooting from a different angle or adjusting the lighting conditions.
