Samsung SC-D363 Mini DV digital camcorder

sir if your camcorder is new then it has a warranty. we should send it first for their service because they have a spare parts for replacement and info. if your going to fix it by yourself then the warranty of that will be void. by the way the place for the service center for camcorder samsung in the philippines is in makati i think. i got a problem with my samsung just like your model and they told me that it is located at makati. hope that helps!

Panasonic DV mini camcorder error message

Inside is a sensor that detects moisture. If there is dew inside the unit, the tape will adhere to the head and create all kinds of problems. This sensor is there to to prevent problems. That being said, the repair for this could be as simple as ejecting the tape leaving the unit open and letting it dry out. It could also be a bad sensor. In the case of the sensor, the parts cost would be in the $10-$20 range. Add in the local labor rate ($175 here in Mass) and you have the total repair cost. While this is not the easiest repair because of its size, anyone that works on camcorders will find it straightforward.

That is the "LOAD" error code.

However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Tape jam

First try to press the power button and the eject button at the same time. If that dosent work its advised to take it to a repair person as taking apart a unit like this can cause more problems then you have now. Lets just hope that its not to late and that the camcorder dosent have those pana caps that always goes bad. Good Luck

Remove cassette tape (message)

No I doubt if it was humidity that was causeing the problem as you would have had an error of "DEW" Sounds lke you have a tapepath problem or a jammed mechanism and that would tell you to eject the tape as it wouldnt load to full position. I would advise on a repair like this you let a pro do the repair unless you know all about these small mechanism Call 1 800 828-4040 good Luck
