Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I play back the video, I see 5 thick evenly spaced gray horizontal stripes on the screen and the sound is intermittent. What is wrong?


Answers :

Hi,
Symptom shows that video head of your camcorder is dirty/ clogged and need to be cleaned with video head cleaning tape.
Put video head cleaning tape in your camcorder and playback it for some time like 10 seconds or so, now check playback with normal tape.
Let me know model and brand of your camera if problem does not solve.
Thanks.

I have a Samsung VP MX10 Camcorder. When I make a video, it plays back ok on the camera's own screen. But when I take the SD card out of the camera and put it into my PC (Vista), it only plays back the sound, with no picture. Am I using the wrong type of SD card? I have installed the Samsung software onto my PC and I have formatted the new SD card, but still without success. What is going wrong and can you help me solve this problem? Thankyou.

I just got my Xacti CS1 and after I shot a couple of test videos, I checked the playback. On the camera screen, playback is flawless, it's quite great, however, when I play the videos back on my macbook in quicktime player, the video is choppy. It will skip a couple of frames every second. It just freezes and then all of a sudden it's a completely different frame like the video was cut and spliced together. What's wrong?

Broken My camera fell from less than a foot off the ground, and there is no external damage.

Hi, We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up.
