Cannot get tape recorded from JVC GY-DV500U to play back on any other deck. It will play back on this camera and I suspect a tape speed difference, but I don't know how to change it on camera. I recently had this camera worked on by JVC repair center for eating tapes. This fixed that problem but now have this issue. They replaced a small plastic gear and a circuit board. They have not answered my email concerning this issue.


This situation is usually caused by a slight misalignment of the recording head. When this happens, the recorder will record, but the tapes can only be replayed in that recorder. I would keep complaining to them, as repair for this could run a few ... Digital Cameras

Dropped Camera I leant my camera to someone and now it won't turn on. The front of the camera is slightly separated from the back and top (the part with buttons on top). Any suggestions? I'm tempted to open it with a small screwdriver and manually put the camera back together but I'm afraid that it's probably not a very good idea. I can't bring the camera in for repair because I'm in Rwanda and can't necessarily find a canon expert here. Any help is appreciated!

I have a Fujifilm Discovery 312 Zoom camera but cannot figure out how to unload/load it. That is, I can open the back, but a film canister that is in it (from having been put in many years ago) does not readily come out. It is seated in such a way that I cannot see how to release it.
