This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these.

the camera should have "a/v"out rca jacks.
yellow is video,other is audio,hook it to your tv or vcr.

YES,you can capture to your computer,but youll need a device with capturing/editing software.

dazzle,is an external adapter,and pinnicle used to sell a package,with an internal pci card,which is capable of importing "analog"(your old 8mm,or from vcr),OR digital(via firewire)if you decide to buy a newer camcorder.

BOTH products come with editing/dvd burning software(which you WILL need)and I can say from experience,pinnicle is easy to learn!!

TRV260 nail-polish head attack:
eek.
Acetone is a powerful solvent capable of dissolving plastic parts, plastic gears, housing and insulation.
Besides that, it leaves a residue of microscopic crystals which have probably contaminated the highly-polished metal head drum.
Not to mention gumming up the bushes and bearings.
With your next camera, rather use a head-cleaner DV-tape.

Memory stick could be fubar. I have a bad sd card that I can record to and will work. Then a few days later the data is corrupted, and I have to reinstall it / same pattern. Try another stick to verify that it is the stick and not the camera electronics.

23 mb should take 10 minutes at most
