Question about Samsung VP-D590i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Who will repair my camcorder?

My Samsung Ditital-cam Camcorder model SCD27 purchased 4 years ago is not operating correctly. I have never used it more than 20 hours. I was told that the problem is likely the "focus motor". I do not want to throw out this fine camera. Where can I send it to have it repaired? thanks, June in Boston email: [email protected]

This won't be the youngest, so after all these years some belts or rollers are worn out. You can't replace those yourself. To repair it will take at least a few hours, so I think you better start saving for a new cam. The modern camera's don't have moving parts, ro they are supposed to live longer. They also have better recording quality and are much cheaper than the Hi-8 we used to buy. My TR-2000 from Sony has the same problem. Costed 1800 dollar almost 20 years ago.

I have a SAMSUNG mini DV camcorder (model SCD27) and want to find a cable that can download my videos to the computer. I need a DV to USB cable that will be compatible with this camcorder. Please help...


There isn't really a DV to USB cable. They are different standards. There is apparently a converter for this, but the chat on the forums is that it doesn't work properly with video cameras.

If your Windows PC did not come with the Firewire (DV) interface (most don't), you will need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card to the internal PCI bus. This will come with a driver for the card. This can only be done on desktop PCs, not laptops. You can buy the card cheaply on eBay or Amazon. You can get a cable there too, but I expect you got a Firewire cable with your camera.

Purchased Canon FS-20 camcorder last week to take on vacation to Disney World. Used it first day for 3 hours off and on then got error message: ''Cannot access internal memory''. Will not record even with...


I've got the same problem, also with a brand-new Canon Legria FS 20. As Canon told me, I took it to a Canon office to be repaired. It was repaired. I tried filming and it worked. Then I tried to view this film and I got the same error message again: cannot access internal memory. I also can't film anymore now. I'll call Canon now and ask them what to do. Repairing didn't help, I want a new cam, but I'm not sure the FS 20 is a good choice. There seems to be a problem with it.

Error message on Brother SE-270D


I had the same issue a few years back but with actual symptoms of malfunctioning. I had mine fixed under warranty. The service tech told me it was a faulty circuit board. Works perfect now. I think the warranty is only for the first year to cover labor and parts. Not sure how much it would be out-of-pocket. This happened within 3 months of a brand new purchase. Hope this answered your question.

Try the most obvious solutions first; making sure the AC adapter for the camera is plugged into the camcorder-- and the plug orientation is correct if applicable, and it is in turn plugged into the wall.
Is the wall outlet working? Try another location in your home to be sure. Is the AC adapter working? If you have a battery, attach it to the camera and see if it charges. Next, look for obvious outward physical damage to the camcorder that could cause it to stop working.
The thin battery you speak of if generally just for backing up the time and date, and is not needed for operation.
The power switch on Canon models is usually a slider that goes from Manual to Auto to VCR mode. If it is dirty or wearing out, move it a small amount to one side or the other, while watching the LED power indicator. If you see it flash, or light dimly, the switch is bad.
Read the manual-- the unit may have a reset function you can access, or require a tape in it to power up. Hope these help.

No display on LCD or viewfinder when recording


I had the same problem with Samsung SCD103. It was sent to the factory January 2007($150.00) and everything worked fine until last week when the grandkids came down. The camera simply stopped displaying any image, the viewfinder went black. I suspect is a failure on the CCD. Now, I have a non-working camera that I've bought extra batteries for and lots of DV tapes. I won't buy another Samsung product now that I've seen the problems and apparent lack of concern for the customer!

PV-GS31... can someone help me?


Your logic is correct, UB2 is a little faster. However, as you have discovered, it is not recognized by the software very well. The quick solution is to buy a firewire kit at Amazon or where ever and your problems are over. The harder solution is to find software versatile enough to recognize video from the UB2 port.
