Question about Samsung SCL901 Hi8mm Camcorder

1 Answer

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

Every time i try to record or watch any footage on my camera it will be ok for like 4 seconds then it alternates back and forth between R.EMG and eject. WHY is this happening to my camera and what does it mean?

    Hi, i had the same problem, and thanks your answer i solved it. But i got one more question. My camera also shows "protection" on the screen. And it also prevents me from any activity with the camera (samsung vp-d105i). I can use the camera only in playback mode. In rec, it shows "protection" also even without a tape inserted. Please help me out. Thanks

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

I have recorded footage from 9channel samsung DVR

Hi,

Normally the recordings are in MP4 format and a lot of players cannot play it. You would need divx plus player. Its free.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent...

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.

Black screen picks up only bright lights

if it is only recording bright light sources then it must be working fine outdoors in broad day light. if so, it means the auto iris of your camera has stucked to minimum opening. was the camera lying idle for long time. try pointing the camera towards low light and bright light with quick moves.some times by doing so it gives a little jerk to the mechanism and it starts working, or lightly patting the camera on the lense side may solve the problem. otherwise let the repaires earn some money.
