Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Camcorder won't load 8 mm videotape.

\015 My 8 mm handycam won't automatically load the tape. It will close when no tape is present, but will not close. It makes a noise like it's trying to close, but won't. Any advice? I have tons of analog tapes, and am having a hard time finding a compatible camera. Thanks.\015

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

I am unable to locate the installation CD I had with the PV-GS13 camcorder I purchased quite a few year ago. The serial number is G4IA12045.
