I have an old HITACHI VM-E31A camcorder made in 1992 and everything is working but when I record something I cant see anything through the view lens...it's just a big blur of white. I know it's recording because I can see shaddows behind the wall of blur. Is there something that's effecting the view like the battery or film or something else? And can I get it fixed?

To my understanding that you do not see live view in camera mode to record and camcorder playback old recorded tapes correctly and you get picture in LCD. If it is true then please check lens cover that need to be slide down to get live view in camera mode. If problem still exist then 2 possibilities, either aperture in lens mechanism is bad or ccd imager is defective. In that problem, camcorder needs qualified tech to fix it. Let me know any further query.
sounds like some REALLY outdated compression... have you checked to make sure it's recording in the highest quality possible? Usually you can change settings like these in the camera's menu. If so then I'm a little stumped and wouldn't think any camera would continue functioning at all if it's encoding hardware were failing....
There is a mode switch within the deck assembly that is probably dirty but not cleanable. I haven't repaired one of those for some years and am sure spares are no longer available for it. The 58 is V8 format and should be OK but may show similar symptoms due to age, in the future.
