Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Samsung camcorder Hi, I have a samsung video camcorder model VP-D107i which has only been used several times. I needed to use it last week to video my husbands funeral service and after charging the battery the cam wouldn't turn on at all, won't eject the tape, won't do anything, it just ticks like a clock. I have many memories on the mini dv tapes that I can't see without it. Help me please!


Answers :

Although my question might sound stupid, but did you charge the battery? The camera should be having a li-ion battery, which does not retain its charge for long(a week or so) which gives the battery a longer life.

If this is not the problem, could you explain the "ticks like a clock" in detail.

I could also be due to the tape getting jammed.

I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?

Please advise if Sony TRV78E (nominally designated a Hi8 camcorder) will play back Basic Video8 tapes (not Hi8) - recorded with early camcorders having only a mono audio track.

I have an old Video Camera, Sanyo VM-RZ2R 8mm camcorder. I can't get the cassette holder to eject. There's no cassette in it at the moment but when I press the eject button, the camcorder turns a couple of little plastic wheels within it but the cassette holder does not eject. I have some old footage of the kids and was hoping to get it copied to digital eventually. Can you help? Thanks.


Your eject problem will be one of three things. 1- the gears for the eject mechanism have shifted and not making contact with each other. You can fix this by realigning the gears. 2- The gears are stripped and need replaced. 3- there is a small plast ... Sanyo Digital Cameras

I have a JVC GR-DX25EK digital video camera which I have had for several years and never had any problems with.

My canon vixia hv30 camcorder is not reading tapes anymore. It rewinds and forwards and reports the tape position but the tape counter does not roll showing only dashes as if the tape is empty. All this started when i put in a cassette in which the tape has somehow become crunched. There was some pushing involved and the camera auto-ejected teh tape a couple of time before i realized that the tape inside was crunched. I then straightened the tape by pulling it partly out and rewinding it manual
