Question about Samsung SC-D107 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Vertical lines in camera mode

My Samsung sc-d107 has been working just fine. I recorded the other day with no problem then put the camera away. When I took it out a day later it shows only vertical stripes (blues and yellows in color, mostly) in the display both in the viewfinder and the LCD screen. It does fine in the playback mode of tapes I have previously recorded. The camera has not been dropped or bumped. Help!

The CCD Image Sensor is defective. I have one just like it. The CCD is the chip at the other end of the camera lens that "sees" the image. This model uses a CCD manufactured by Sony that is used in Sony models such as DCR-TRV250 and CCD-TRV138. Canon also uses this Sony CCD int their mini-dv models such as the ZR-60 and other ZR series models. Sony and Canon readily "own up" to this and if you go on their websites you will see that they will fix them for free. They even pay the postage both ways. We were on the phone today with Samsung and they deny any knowledge of the problem and want $150 for repair if I mail it to them. They also will sell me the part for $103! I wish you luck but it might take a class action suit to get them to do anything. I'd love to hear what Samsung tells you... Mike

When I turn on camer to record the word protection comes on . will not record i


Mini-DV tapes have a manual write-protect switch on them to prevent accidental erasure or over-recording of previous recordings. I expect this switch has been set to "save", perhaps accidentally.

The lines you see in recording and playback are from dirty heads, most likely. Purchase a Mini_DV head cleaning cassette and use it following the directions on the package. This should clear up your problem. You may have to use the cassette several times in succession to get the heads clean.

Turn off "protection"


This seems to be an on going problem with all of the Samsung models sooner or later. 1st, check to make sure the protection tab on top of the tape is in record mode. Remove battery, wait a minute and replace battery, turning on the camera, place tape back into camera and close the door. If this does not work, the sensor is not reading that the tape is not protected. It is a service call but not worth the 150-195 in repairs to correct. Sometimes you just need to keep going, and going....
