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!

First, make sure that the switch is on "camera" and not on "play" or "off." When it is on camera, you can then press the button below the word "DISC."
After you record a video, you can simply hit the record button a second time to stop the recording process. The video you just recorded will automatically be given a separate "scene" in the index. You can view the video by moving the selector switch to "play."
Hi jrodd1 my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network, if the 722 DVR isslow in play back and stops prior to recording there are some things you can doto get this working right. The first thing you want to do is unplug thereceiver for 10 seconds and plug it back in. This will allow for the receiverto require the signal and will stop the slow play back and stops prior torecording a program. I will send a link to help with these steps. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/video
I had the same problem. Casio states in the manual that the camera is overheated. But this could not be true in my case, because the error appeared right after switching on the camera. I found it must be a software error. After reseting the menu settings to default in the setup menu, all was fine again.
I had the same problem with my flip mino HD. Here are the steps I took to fix it.
1. Adjust the power options on your laptop to ensure it does not sleep/hiberate ever.
2. Reset the camcorder by inserting a paperclip into the hole in the
tripod mount. Hold the paperclip in there for about seven seconds.
3. Then immediately plug the flip into the cpu.
4. You may not see anything besides the little blinking white light on
the USB arm for a while (about 30 minutes maybe) but leave it in.
5. Eventually it should spring to life and show the recharging battery
on the little screen (the Flip Share program may start too.)
6. Leave it charging until the little white light stops flashing - full charge about 3 hours.
7. You can then remove the flip and change the power settings back to normal.
I'm not familiar with your particular model, but many cameras of this type have a "quick review" function that allows you to see what was recorded for the last few seconds to verify that all is well. This is critical in broadcast situations where you only get one shot to get the video. This is a quick way to verify that all is working without having a blank gap in the recording caused by an inaccurate rew/play/stop/rec sequence.
As far as I can tell, and yes the documentation is skimpy, when you press the 'record/play' button the video recording pauses. Make sure you press the video icon button, not the 'record/play' button to get it started again. If you press the 'record/play' button, it goes into a 'play back' mode.
