Question about Hitachi VMD965LA Digital-8 Digital Camcorder

Video Head Problem

It is recording perfectly allright as i have checked its recording on another camera but it is not playing its own recording so i am unable to watch mine recorded movies. While playing it looks like that some waves or moving on the screen or tape is sticking. I have used Head cleaner but no improvemnt. Local Hitachi Support say that i should replace Video Head but it is not available with them in Pakistan. It is brand new camera, only 5 ~ 6 tapes were recorded in three years. Any help will be appreciated!

It could also be tape path alignment, either case you will have to send it in.

Has error


It's a supply reel fault. I kid you not, the cure is to give it a REASONABLY FORCEFUL open-handed slap on the tape side. it may take a couple of tries but it works about 95% of the time.

Have you tried cleaning the camcorder heads?

Try putting vhs-c cleaner in your local ebay..... such as (in UK) ....

Particles from the tape get lodged on the head over time. Its not special to VHS-c - its common to all tape products. Usually a good clean (say 3 - 4 times initially, plus one clean every 20 hours use, or so) prevents the accumulation of residue.

Sound and picture jumping


This is probably because this camera records in HD format which will jump around when played on computers that are not very high performance. You need at least 2gb of RAM and a decent processor.

Otherwise, the codec is missing or old for playing the format.

Panasonic HVX200 will not play back tape


Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.

I am unable to watch video recorded by my My S1065 camera on my PC using media player, although it will play through realtime player.


The media player that your using does not have the correct codec to run the video recorded by your camera. You need to install codec like klite

you can download it here http://www.k-litecodecpack.com/

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play


Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"

Has error


Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
