Question about JVC GY-HD100E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Serious problem during recording process. "Black holes"

I own a GY-HD100E, and i'm having serious problems in the recording process.

Most of the tapes have what i call "black holes" in the midle of recorded footage. For example:

scene 1, ok
scene 2, ok
scene 3: the screen turns blue, and appears: "changing format"
scene 4, ok

I didn't change formats, has the camera seems to claim, once the same format was used in the all tape.

Also the problems seems to hapen when the camera turned off, and then connected again to record. It doesn't cut pieces of a scene. It disapears the all scene...

Sometimes in the "black holes", the first frame of the scene appears, and stands still in the screen, with the timecode running. This tells me that probably something is recorded, but the camera can+t read it.

This happened in HDV 25p, and HDV SD50p

This happen in several places, several situations, with several brand tapes.

I already contacted some GY-HD100E users, but none seems to recognize this problem.

During recording the image is OK in the monitor and in LCD. No message is show, and you only notice when you playback the scene in VTR mode

thank you.

SOURCE: unable to

Okay, so if you want to do real-time capture, you need to setup a playlist of clips on the camera. when you go to play the playlist, do NOT press the center button in, push it to the right. Then it will start doing what you want.

What does this mean?

Water vapour formed during the combustion process from water in the air. More noticeable on a cold engine on a cold morning. If you have fears of something more serious have a cooling system check done to test for head/gasket problems.

What does it mean when check engine light blinks

A flashing check engine light indicates a serious condition with the engine, and the car should not be driven far until that condition is repaired. You need to have the fault codes read to determine what the problem is. You can have this done at Auto Zone for free. If you continue to drive like this, you will destroy the catalytic converter.

Hi there seems to be a problem with the iris to my HVC GY-HM100. I'm hoping it's just a setting that needs to be changed. Basically on complete manual mode the picture just keeps flickering in black and...

See if you can reset camera to factory defaults. If not then you have a serious issue with the camera electronics.

Think that puppy is ready for retirement since repair, if available, will cost a small fortune and not be worth it.

Cyberlink youcam unable to record audio properly

I've just run an experiment using two separate mic's and can for certain YouCam has a serious problem with audio. If you hold any note (voice, piano, you pick), for more than 2 seconds, YouCam cuts off the note after the second #2, and all you hear is some phase shifted garble over the remainder of that note. Real nice.
