20 Most Recent RCA CC6151 Camcorder Questions & Answers


The vhs camcorder has very complex mechanics and hold many traps for the inexperienced. I suggest you begin by obtaining a standard vhs recorder and remove the cover to expose the interior and then study it. You will find the engineering and interior geography of your camcorder similar. The round shiny barrel-shaped thing contains the record and playback video heads and the sound head is separate and looks like a larger version of what can be seen in a standard audio cassette recorder. The interior must be extremely clean, the drive belts in good condition and the clutches and rubber rollers also in good order.

It is over 18 years old - the probability is that some of the electronic components have deteriorated to such an extent that it is no longer usable.

I had one of those and it was so out dated can't get parts. My battery burnt out and could not find a replacement.

You can get videos from this camera, or any analogue video source, into a computer. You just have to play them into an analogue video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a PC, or sometimes as a USB plug-in interface. They will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file. Lots of third party video editing software will also be able to accept the input from this kind of port. You don't need any "driver" related to the camera, it is just a video signal source. The connecting leads will be standard RCA signal plugs, like the ones you use to connect to a TV or VHS recorder. You probably already have a lead for this.

Once you have the video on the computer, you will need DVD "Authoring" and burning software, which will usually come as part of the same package. You can download such software for free from the internet- my first stop would be www.download.com.

Hello,

Here's a link to the manual for your camcorder. Take a look at page 11. There are composite (dont confuse with component) audio and video outputs. If your TV has the same type of inputs, then a direct connection between the TV and camcorder is possible. Otherwise, you will need a composite video converter to change the format to a specific channel, usually 3 or 4.

On the VHS adapter, try changing the battery (also in the manual as well) to restore operation.

Underneath the black battery, when you take it off to charge, there is another small battery compartment it holds a round battery about an inch in diameter. try replacing it. that might be the problem. hope it works out for you.

I don't know anything about the vhs camera - other than they produce superior quality, when they work ok. It would be reasonable to assume the tape transport mechanism would be the same as in a vhs video recorder. I remember an engineer telling me there is a post or protrusion containing a light source and sensor that sometimes fails. The purpose of this is to detect a cassette has been properly loaded into the machine and if it isn't working the machine won't work or only partly work. I think the camera is worth saving but I strongly suggest such specialist equipment should be entrusted to a suitably experienced professional specialist.

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue. Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out. Sorry.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

I understand you have a problem. What is not clear from your description, however, is the actual nature of the problem. Please can you state it more clearly. Thank you.
