If you record from an outside source, turn up the source (e.g.digital receiver) volume. If recording sound from a VCR's own tuner, tape path, especially the drum(once you open the cover)and linear voice recorder post (to the right after the drum)must be cleaned. Get instructions from the web how to do the cleaning, otherwise you may damage the machine. Switch to hi-fi track if you have one and adjust the tracking.
Hi this is a fault alot of people have it usually starts to happen when you have been recording and then a loud noise has happened this then damages the mic on the camcorders. The problem you might have is going to be getting a new mic fitted as alot of the newer camcorders they dont sell replacement parts unless its a top of the range one but if the parts are not available then their is no way of repairng it the bets thing to try is look in the phone book or online for a camera repair shop or even ring a camera shop up and ask them if their are parts available for your camcorder let me know if you need further assistance
What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
you will ruin the video head for doing that the cleaner is very rough...forward a blank new tape 5 times as you needed......if nothing happen check the video head appearance maybe have crack or weak already....
your tape guides are out of calibration on all
your pre - recorded tapes , or they are out of
adjustment ( maybe even loose ) now ;
put your camcorder close , next to your ear ?
and . . . listen ! to a new tape in play mode -
if you hear a fluttering sound like a deck of
cards being shuffled softly , the camera is
damaging all your tapes and needs alignment ;
There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. Cystal-shaped spots, black spots, and bright spots of light (red, green, or blue) can appear on the LCD monitor for a variety of reasons. These spots are not being recorded on your tape. But if these are distracting your videotaping, consider taking a slightly different shooting angle and the spots should go away.
Yes, and it is highly recommended to do so. Hitachi’s DVD-Camcorder has an advanced analogto-digital conversion system. By using the analog Audio/Video input on the camcorder, the tape based information is converted into digital data and is then recorded onto the DVD disc. See manual instructions for switching input from Camera to Line-In.
