I have error 02-496 in DVCAM DSR-2000AP digital video cassette recorder and tape is stuck inside,

To avoid a very costly repair, return it to Sony Broadcast for repair. If someone starts removing things to get the tape out, it will cost you for many spare parts and labour as the deck mechanism must be re timed or it will lock out, permanently. I was an authorised Sony Broadcast engineer for many years.

When a new charger has connected to charge the SONY DCR-20, it could not charged by showing that to reinstall. Please solve the problem.

If your SONY DCR-20 camera battery isn't charging properly, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue: Check the Charge Lamp: If the charge lamp is on, it means the battery is being charged. Wait until the lamp goes out when charging is complete. If the lamp goes out immediately after charging starts, your camera might already be fully charged. Insert the battery into the camera and check the battery status icon. If the lamp is flashing slowly (at intervals of faster than 1 second), charging has stopped due to high or low battery temperature. Remove the battery from the charger and let both the battery and charger sit at an ambient temperature of 50°F to 86°F (10°C to 30°C). Try charging again later. Charging will resume when the battery temperature is within the appropriate range. Clean Battery Terminals: If the lamp is flashing (at intervals of faster than 1 second) or not lighting up at all, it could indicate that charging was stopped or cannot start due to dirty battery terminals. Clean the battery terminals and try charging again. This issue may occur if the battery hasn't been used for a long time. Power Off the Camera: Ensure the camera is powered off during charging. Sometimes, charging may not work properly if the camera is turned on. Allow Cooling Time: After extended use or if the ambient temperature is high, the battery may become too warm. Allow it to cool down before attempting to charge again. Remember to follow these steps, and if the issue persists, consider replacing either the battery pack or the battery charger Hopefully, this resolves the charging problem.

Sharp Camcorder Viewcam 8 Hi-fi Monaural VL-E34h. It works but won't show the recording. The sound is there but no picture.

troubleshoot this problem: Check the Lens Cap: Ensure that the lens cap is removed. Sometimes, forgetting to take off the lens cap can result in a black screen. Inspect the Recording Mode: Verify that the camcorder is set to the correct recording mode (e.g., video recording mode). If it's accidentally set to playback mode, you won't see live video. Clean the Lens and Sensor: Dust or smudges on the lens or sensor can obstruct the video. Gently clean the lens with a soft cloth and ensure there's no dirt or debris. Battery and Power: Make sure the battery is charged and properly inserted. Low battery levels might cause issues with video display. Playback Mode: If you can see previously recorded videos during playback but not during recording, it might be a problem with the recording circuitry. Viewfinder or LCD Screen: If your camcorder has a viewfinder or an LCD screen, check if it displays any information during recording. If it does, the issue might be with the main display. Camera Settings: Access the camera settings menu and verify that the video recording settings (resolution, frame rate, etc.) are correctly configured. Tape or Memory Card: If you're using tapes or memory cards, ensure they are properly inserted and not damaged. Manual Focus: Check if the camcorder is set to manual focus. If so, switch it to auto focus. Faulty CCD Sensor: The issue could be related to a faulty CCD sensor. Unfortunately, repairing or replacing the sensor might require professional assistance. If none of the above steps resolve the issue, consider consulting the user manual for further troubleshooting or contacting a professional technician.

Have a 8ch flouren's camera system it says it recording but went to playback nothing is recorded What do i need to do to get it to record not connected to internett

Floureon CCTV DVR FIX - Bing video Check Camera Compatibility: Ensure that the cameras you're trying to connect are compatible with your DVR. It seems you have both 900TVL and 1500TVL Floureon cameras. However, your new DVR might be analog-only, which means it won't work with HD cameras (like AHD, HDTVI, or HDCVI). The old 1500TVL cameras might fall into this category. Try connecting only two of your old cameras to the DVR and observe if they work. If they do, it confirms the compatibility issue. Check DVR Settings: Access the DVR settings menu and verify the following: Encoding Format: Ensure that the DVR is set to the correct encoding format (e.g., 960H or AHD-L). Network Settings: If you're not connected to the internet, disable any network-related settings (such as DHCP or UPnP). Camera Channels: Confirm that the channels corresponding to your cameras are correctly configured. Hard Drive Installation: Make sure you have a functional hard drive installed in the DVR for recording purposes. Power Supply and Connections: Double-check the power supply for both the DVR and the cameras. Faulty power connections can lead to recording issues. Inspect the camera cables and connections. Loose or damaged cables may cause recording failures. Playback Mode: When in playback mode, try deselecting one camera and selecting another. Sometimes, all cameras are recording, but you can only view two at a time. By switching between cameras, you can access the recorded footage. Factory Reset (if necessary): As a last resort, consider performing a factory reset on the DVR. Be aware that this will erase all settings, so proceed with caution.

How do you get an LG LV720 video cassette recorder out of safe mode?

To get your LG LV720 video cassette recorder out of safe mode, you can follow these steps: Locate the original remote control that came with your VCR. Look for a button marked as C.LOCK or LOCK. Press this button. This should allow you to exit the safe mode3. If you don't have the original remote, you might face some difficulties. Some users have reported success by pressing the record button for 6 seconds on their Panasonic VCRs but it's unclear if this will work for an LG model.

Hi, I have a Canon G30 Camcorder.

Here are steps you can take in view of the data you've given: 1. Check the focal point cap: Guarantee it's taken out. An even, to some degree, appended focal point cap can prevent picture capture. 2. Review the focal point for soil or garbage: Clean it delicately with a delicate, microfiber material if necessary. 3. Check battery charge: A low battery can, in some cases, cause a startling way of behaving. Charge the battery completely and retry. 4. Affirm recording mode: Twofold check that the camcorder is really set to record mode, not playback mode. 5. Attempt an alternate memory card: In the event that you're utilizing a card, it very well may be flawed. Test with an alternate, viable card. 6. Reset the camcorder: In some cases, a straightforward reset can determine misfires. Allude to your manual for explicit guidelines. If none of these steps resolve the issue, it's likely a hardware problem that requires professional repair. Contact Canon Support for further assistance or to arrange service.

I have a digital sony handycam model DCR-SR32. I did'nt use it for a couple of years. Before 2 days I charged it but the LCD monitor is red. I can't see anything crearly.

This machine dates back to 2007. I suspect most of the organic electrolytic capacitors are either leaky or short circuit and there are many. A Sony Service Centre may be able to repair it for you.
