I've been trying to transfer some old tapes to my pc using the Firewire connector. Previously I've had no problems wiht this however the same tapes with transferred both video and audio fine previously will not output a clear audio signal now. It seems to be something to do with the unit automatically switching to "NORM" on the audio output and will not permit me to save HI-FI or L/R - it simply switches back to Norm when set to play. The audio signal is being output but at a very low volume with no clarity. I've tried other tapes which are more "up-to-date" and they work fine but have probably been recorded with a Hi-Fi recorder rather than the ones which I'm now having problems with. Also tried a head cleaner. It seems strange that the audio signal cannot be selected whilst the unit is playing. Thanks for any help!
Hello, this problem is because of the nature of previously recorded signal. The recording made in an older way (mono) has a separate head and the solution for your problem can be to clean the head. This head has two functions, for control pulses and audio signal. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
