Camcorder not working says 'c-emg' on screen

Hi, Our camcorder suddenly stopped working - when I switch it on the tape seems to run back and forward almost like it is temporarily rewinding and Fast forwarding. Then the screen says 'eject' and 'c-emg' comes on screen, which looking at the manual says 'take to an engineer'. Any ideas as to how I could possibly save £ and fix it myself? many thanks Steve8

That error code is telling you hey i've got a mechanical problem because when the microprocessor tells me to move the mode switch is suppose to send signals back to the processor to let the mechanism know where its at and in this case the processors not getting the right codes or signals so it wont let you use it, and thats why it will eject if a tape is inserted. Now unless you have all the special tools ,jigs and adaptors to repair this including a service and a mechanism manual you really should take this unit in as there are really no serviceable parts inside for the consumer to replace. Sorry i couldnet be more helpfull. Good Luck

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40

You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

Camcorder problems

wow this is an old post...but mine used to do that back when I had a charger for it haha...I tightened up the video tape and make sure the tape didnt have wrinkles in it too...and it seemed to alleviate the problem if not for one recording...the stop and go recording though thats when this emergency eject happened to me...but was resolved with my just turning the wheels in the tape to tighten the tention...of course it sometimes didn't work cause I didnt get it tight enough you just gotta play with it...if all else fails send it to the shop though...
Sincerely,
Rabeka Jo

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. This problem can be solved by fitting the bronze socket with a small quantity of superglue or poxipol
