Question about Samsung Cameras
I have a HI8 Digital camcorder SCL700 that is not working at all. It's like new, very few hours on it only a half dozen tapes ever recorded. I thought the batteries were completely dead, bought a new one, still NOTHING! It will not play or record with the LED open, and even through the viewfinder it see a blinking error message like D.EMG - EJECT. The manual only says that means it needs service....[LOL]!!!Any help here?? Steve

I had a problem the same as yours and I found the problem on the ribbon wire connected to the board where all the control button is located ( stop, rew, play, fwd pause). The problem occur because everytime you eject the tape from the loading mechanism the ribbon wire also move like your cutting it into pieces. sorry for my english hope you get the idea.... wait for the photo and i'll show you what i mean.. hope this will give you the solution you need.

What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
