Question about Samsung SC-L906 Camcorder

1 Answer

Display reads R.EMG

If I have not turned the camera on in a while it works fine. But after I've had it on maybe about 10 minutes my display will read R.EMG and the tape will stop playing. I also noticed that when this happens the camera will start to eat the tape. What should I do to troubleshoot? I tried doing what the manual said but first I take the tape out and the proceed with the manual instructions to "Turn the camera off and take the battery off, replace the battery and turn the camera back on", it doesn't work. Is there a solution that I can do or is it out of my hands and need to go a repair shop. Thanks for a quick response.

The belts that drive the tape are most likely defective.

SOURCE: Mechanical problem "C.EMG" from my SC-A30 camcorder

This is a great little inexpensive camcorder here in the states. My experience with this model with those symptoms have been mode switch problems or a broken cam that throws the camcorder mechaism out alinment. These babys are nothing like the full size camcordersas you need special alighment jigs and lots of luck(lol) Reason i say that is because the manuals are not the most complete with the mechanical alighnment and you have to have some experience with other brands as afetr all mostly work about the same way in several ways as theres only so many ways to move a tape. These camcorder also suffer rfom the dreaded sony cap problem where they used those small serface mount caps made by panasonic and when you have on in for service you ended up in most cases replaceing several at a time as you would find all sorts of other tiny problems that the customer forgot to tell ya like veifinder problems and the shutting fown after a few hours ect ect. Best thing for you is to order a manual or ship it out to a repair depot to have fixed BUT in tellin ya its probably cost prohibited because of the time it takes to sevice these pups. Good Luck

SOURCE: camcorder not working says 'c-emg' on screen

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

SOURCE: what do L.EMG and R.EMG mean and why do they prevent me from any activity with my camera?

Hello, The errors you are getting are "reel" errors. One or both of the tape reels are not turning during tape movement and the camera is shutting down to protect itself and your tape. In this model this problem is usually caused by the take up reel shaft being bent due to improper insertion of the cassette although this may not be the case. Please inspect both the takeup and supply tape reels and insure they are in correct alignment, if not, a gentle push to one side or the other will place them back in operating position. Good luck to you. Joe Weibel CustomElectronics.Org

Hello,
Looking at PDX 10 User Manual Page 232

Your description -

Under lined Triangle

Cassette Ejection needed
Slow Flashing: The Write protect tab exposed

Fast Flashing: Moisture Condensation
Cassette out of tape
Self diagnosis display function activated


Sounds like the diagnosis function maybe your best shot......
Check displayed error codes in viewfinder on Page 231 of the User Manual or let me know if you dont have copy of them.

Tape Symbol Flashing:

Tape near end
No cassette inserted
The write protect tab exposed.

I think this is basically telling you the loading mechanism has a problem, the viewfinder is displaying an error code indicating the nature of the fault..... IF error Code is : E61:........ or E62........ (dots indicate extra numbers) these MUST be referred to Sony Service Centre.

Hope this may help

  • Try the scotch tape or masking tape technique: get around two to three inches long sticky tape, stick about an inch above the flash housing, turn on the camera, hold the remaining tape upward , shoot the camera and pull the tape upward with a force enough to pull-up the flash bulb housing.

JVC GR DVL 9000 digital video camera EO3 problem?


In the case no REEL FG is produced for 4 seconds
or more in the capstan rotation mode after
loading was complete, the mechanism mode
is shifted to STOP with the pinch roller set off.
This error is defined as [E03].
However, no REEL EMG is detected in the
SLOW/STILL mode.
1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with
each other, the tape is not wound because of overload
to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette
having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the
slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal
status.

Tape Won't Load


something is blocking the mechanism and not letting it load or the mode switch is bad and the mechanism dosent know where it is. These camcorders are common for this type of problem and these days Im sorry to say that most places charge an arm and a leg just to look at them. good Luck

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
