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 a Panasonic AG-HVX200. We use it record our services on Sunday. We recorded 4 times yesterday and when I go to play the video back it's just a blue screen. I have tried several tapes and it does...


try running a dry head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds. if it improves, but still has problems, run it again for another 5 to 10 seconds. There is a possibility that your heads were dirty when you recorded and therefore the footage did not record correctly. Hopefully, that is not the issue and the head cleaning tape will help.....Sony has the best one that we have found and we use it on all different brands of camcorders.

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10...


Well, you failed to tell us the make and model of the camera so I can only give you a generic answer. New cards must be formatted in the camera. Video requires a fast card so it can keep up.

I WOULD LIKE TO DOWNLOAD MY WEBCEM IN MY COMPUTER


If you mean capture webcam footage when you mean download, you can use various programs to record from your webcam. If you want to upload to Youtube, they have a great built-in program to record your webcam footage and upload it from their site. If you wish to just record it for your viewing, a quick search for webcam recorders online will get you plenty of results. One program to try can be this.

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.

Mini DV Tapes are not playing back. Nothing but blue screen when I try to view tape...no time code...nothing. Recently recorded footage plays back fine though?????


If recently recorded plays back ok, and there's no warning about low rf or head clogging problems,it seems to be electronic problem in vtr board,but usually is head problem,which is not so expensive.

Camera won't record/ play footage.


Video head was dirty / clogged due to old tapes usage so it did not recorded any signal on tape and now it requires cleaning with good quality head cleaning tape to record and playback properly.
