I filmed 12 hours of footage (6 tapes) over two days using two different Canon XHA1 cameras in HD mode using Sony HD tapes. 4 of the tapes are fine but two of the tapes are not showing a timecode consistently and I cannot get them to read in the camera or a Sony playback deck. I also cannot get Final Cut Pro to read any footage off the tapes. This is a desperate situation as the two tapes in question have footage from an actual wedding ceremony on them. It is strange because they were used at t

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?

The VCR orked well the last time I used it a couple of years ago. It has been sitting in the rack for at least two years and was not ever used for more than a couple of weeks since new. I bought it for a video project and never used it after that. Now, when playing tapes, it runs at a speed faster than it was originally recorded at and the tracking lines are everywhere. I used a head cleaning tape but this has not changed anything. I opened the cover and it free of any visible dust and lo

Hi - that fact the VCR sat unused for a long time contributes greatly to your problem. As you have stated that tapes play fine in other machines. Many VCR transport or drive mechanisms rely on belts to turn wheels, etc. to advance tape. ... Digital Cameras

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

When you say that you are having mosaic problems you are actually referring to pixelation. That means the video is showing what appears to be loss of detail that is replaced by the appearance of little boxes. The problem that you describe is common o ... Digital Cameras

I change out the batteries between the rechargeable ones it came with and double A's. I can get it to read the internal memory if I use the cord and connect it to my computer and select reformat. Even if it tells me that it is protected. The lens will not close even after you turn the power off or if you go to review. I tried different memory, changed batteries and read about trouble shooting. It worked perfectly before.

I got a new SP800UZ. I have never used a camera, other than point and shoot. Are there "how to videos" or classes I can take? I read the manual and don't even understand the jargon. I'm really in kindergarten here. I signed up for a community ed class on digital photography, but it isn't "how to use your camera". It is more of a "how to get great photos, IF you KNOW HOW to use your camera". Please help!

Fuji S5000 camera problem....The battery door will not latch because the cheap plastic retaining nipples inside the battery box have worn down/or broken. Tape will not even hold door closed! The retainers on the hinged door are fine (naturally it's the body!) The retainers don't meet each other as one slides the door closed and the spring loading makes the door pop open. Can a person use machine screws and latches or what??? (Velcro?...probably like tape that won't hold)

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today. Tried to use for the first time but on pressing the record button I get a red 10 second countdown on the screen and then it beeps and the recording stops. Am able to play back the 10 seconds of footage ok but can't get it to record for any longer. Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use
