Question about Canon Video Cameras

1 Answer

Am I wise to try and fix my [NTSC] Canon ES2500A video camcorder myself or should I just try to replace it with a refurb to transfer my Hi8 video to digital?

The Camera gate opens on start and closes but play, rewind etc. functions do not work. I'm guessing a servicing to ease any stiffness might do the job to get it to at least play a tape. Is their any video guides to self service these cameras or is it worth it at all to send it away versus buying a refurb?

Hi,

you might be able to get the camera fixed by geeksquad/Bestbuy so I would advise you to try this first before purchasing a replacement. Thank you.

Play back pre recorded HI8 tapes on my TRV130?

The Sony DCR-TRV130 is a D8 digital camcorder which is not compatible with Hi8 camcorders.
You need to have an Hi8 camcorder or DCR-TRV103 or similar camcorders that backward compatible with Hi8 camcorders.

I have a canon ZR60 camcorder with a "black

Yes, these units in particular have a common problem with the CCD sensors. It is not exactly an inexpensive repair, and if you had to pay for it yourself, would probably exceed the value of the camera. Contact Canon support as they may replace the CCD for free or under a special warranty, since the problem was so pervasive. If Canon won't replace it for you, you probably need to look into a new camcorder.

Hello to everybody; how can transfer my video

Your camera should be USB so just find a usb cable and plug it in.

You computer should reconise it as removable media and you can broswe your files there.

If its a memory card camera you can just buy a memory card reader and plug this in

hope this helps

Sony TRV510-playback, audio choppy, image isn't clear

I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.

I tried it, and IT WORKED!!

Transferring Hi8 to my PC

Download Driver
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-matrix.pl?upd_id=1452

Install then download and install a video program like movavi videosuite or ulead videostudio (i personally recommend movavi).

Plug in the camcorder and switch it on, put it on play/edit and play the video, press record or capture in the software and let it record!

once the video scene in the camera is done, stop the recording and do what you wish!

GOOD LUCK!
