I found that the RCA Small Wonder is very touchy when it comes to batteries. My unit went out 2x on me and I almost there it out. First time for no reason except I tried to put videos on computer. 2nd time I put rechargable batteries that I asume we're to powerful for the unit. I let it sit for a while and put regular AcDelco batteries in it and it was fine.

I don't know anything about the vhs camera - other than they produce superior quality, when they work ok. It would be reasonable to assume the tape transport mechanism would be the same as in a vhs video recorder. I remember an engineer telling me there is a post or protrusion containing a light source and sensor that sometimes fails. The purpose of this is to detect a cassette has been properly loaded into the machine and if it isn't working the machine won't work or only partly work. I think the camera is worth saving but I strongly suggest such specialist equipment should be entrusted to a suitably experienced professional specialist.

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Possible causes: the sync signal head is not recording, there is a mismatch between the capstan motor speed and the video head speed, or one of the sync circuits has a fault. Typically, if the picture rolls up or down, it's a vertical sync problem. A horizontal sync fault or tracking mismatch will cause the picture to tear sideways. Try cleaning the sync head (one of two heads separate from the video head drum; the other is the audio track head), but don't be surprised if doesn't solve the problem.

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue. Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out. Sorry.

The vhs camcorder has very complex mechanics and hold many traps for the inexperienced. I suggest you begin by obtaining a standard vhs recorder and remove the cover to expose the interior and then study it. You will find the engineering and interior geography of your camcorder similar. The round shiny barrel-shaped thing contains the record and playback video heads and the sound head is separate and looks like a larger version of what can be seen in a standard audio cassette recorder. The interior must be extremely clean, the drive belts in good condition and the clutches and rubber rollers also in good order.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

Poor signal strength.

This is extremely old technology - replace it, as parts and service will not be available.

RCA CC-439... • Answered on Sep 08, 2017


It is over 18 years old - the probability is that some of the electronic components have deteriorated to such an extent that it is no longer usable.

Why not get a professional video company to do it for you ? Quality will be better than any domestic setup could achieve.
