We are having troubles with recording and playing back on our video camera. It records for about 5 seconds then stops and the power light then flashes and won't do anything. The same thing happens with playback. We have plugged this into direct power and it doesn't make any difference, nor does a video head cleaner disk.
Any help would be great.
The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!
*I fixed mine (twice) this way*
Turn the cam over. remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully. Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in. Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.
The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!
A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.
Do not use a head cleaner - they can damage the heads. Insert a brand new high quality tape and perform a record. Let it record through the entire tape. Then, play back an original prerecorded tape and check playback.
DSC-S930 does record sound and you can hear video clip sound by playback of Media Player in Computer. This camera does not have inbuilt speaker for playback sound but it have inbuilt mic to record sound, transfer recorded movie clip in computer and play it with media player to get sound and picture. Hope this info will help you.
That's because this is a quad. It compresses all 4 video feeds into 1 file. When you play it back, it decompresses the video and shows you each camera. Playback through this unit is the only way to see 1 camera at a time.
To be able to copy 1 camera shot to a DVD, this is what you need to do:
You need to have a TV with Video in and Video out jacks.
Connect the Quad to the TV Video in jack and connect the TV Video out jack to your DVD Video in jack. Playback a single camera shot on the quad to the TV and hit record on your DVD. - The DVD will record whatever is shown on the TV.
