You may find that one or more of the electronic components within the camcorder are no longer viable. Given its age, it is probably not worth fixing - replace it with a more up-to-date model.

Need more info. Does the player accept the disc? If so, do you hear the disc spinning inside? If not, what does the player do? Does it kick the disc back out? Will this player accept and play other discs?

This means that the gearing governing lens retraction is damaged in some way. It will need to be serviced by a professional.

Maybe it didn't like you shouting at it. Means condensation has formed within it, and it needs to be gently dried out - airing cupboard for 48 hours, something like that.

Hi there
Okay so I have carried out some research on the problem you are having.
The VL-DC5 does not have drivers online to download because the drivers in windows XP support this model camcorder
The problem is that you are probably trying to connect the device to your computer using USB.
The drivers in windows XP are only compatible with this camcorder when using Firewire cables.
If you don't have a firewire cable then you will need to buy one and use this to connect your camcorder to your pc.
It should work fine after you have tried this.
Let me know how you get on!
