I purchased a Panasonic D-snap sv-av100 camcorder in the United States. It records fine, but when I try to copy film on to my Panasonic DVD recorder (I live in Austria, so it is PAL format) I just get a rolling black and white picture. Is this to do with NTSC and PAL compatability and if so, what can I do to get the colour picture I desire. Many thanks in advance. Jerry Haylins.

I have a jvc mini dv GR-D23EK camcorder. It usually works absolutely fine but I have gone to use it after it being charged and you cannot see anything through the lens.

In 2005 our historical society bought a Liteon DVD recorder LVW 5007 to made DVD's of camcorder interviews for our towns history. After making about 50 of these DVD's Our Liteon machine will not let us open the drawer or use the remote. We hook up the camcorder which has tapes to the recorder and the TV. The trouble seemed to build up and not excepting all the disks but after trying a number it would except one, and then it just stopped and the drawer would not open. So is it electronic or me

It is mechanical. You can remove the screws and remove the top case to inspect the inside. You may not be able to fix it yourself but at least you'll get a look inside. ... Digital Cameras

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital. We recorded our son's pre-k graduation today but all video has disappeared including our daughter's recital. What is frustrating is that since the disc states that there is only 4 minutes left (60 minute

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now.

However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!
