Answers :

Hi,

Have you Connected it Properly?

Start connecting cables between your camcorder and DVD recorder. When \015\012you get a solid signal, start recording. It is just as simple as it \015\012sounds.

Take a Look at the Video where you would Find a Generic Procedure How you need to Attach Video Camera to TV.



Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When recording footage in the slow motion setting with the Casio FH20 i often get jerky play back on a burnt DVD or fresh from the file on the computer. The footage starts off OK but gets gradually jerker. I thought it was the computer but it does this on DVD's and on files that have been exported at lower quality. Is this a memory card thing or the camera maybe? Any help appreciated!

OK - AFTER LOSING 2 DAYS OF MY LIFE I GET THAT I CAN'T GET MY VIDEO BACK :((( BUT I NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHY SO IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN. I used canon dc 100 with TDK DVD-R disk which doesn't require initialization - only finalization. I recorded video - played it back IN camcorder, no problems - then finalized, but something (that's what I need to figure out why possibly occurred!!) something bad happened and deleted all video - it reads blank disk according to online recovery software, windows, a

I just bought a tl105 samsung camera. When in movie mode, I can't always get it to start recording. I get an audible sound, but sometimes nothing happens when I push the shutter button, and sometimes it starts recording.

Bought a direct dvd recorder Sony DRV-MC10 on Amazon.USA,namely imported from USA to Greece. I can only record fotos on the DVD. When trying to record on dvd through all input connections I get an error message''incorrect colour system''. I use PAL tapes shot on Sony handycam or video from quick SDHC memory card 16GB shot on Panasonic handycam.So my drv-mc10 is sofar practically useless.


Yes, the problem with electronics is the US uses NTSC and most other countries use PAL, it changes how the tape head alignes with the tape. You have to insure the device you have is both (most devices are) so try and get into the menu settings and s ... Digital Cameras

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

The dv/dv8 dubbing doesnt work. i connected a sony trv530 (as a source) to the 535 via a ilink cable(that i know works) & when using the dvd remote the 530 will start playing but the 535 wont record & the signal wont show on the monitor, unless i cycle the "input" (on the remote) & come back to "dv". at that point the signal appears on the monitor & if at that time i press record it will start recording

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse. This past weekend I was using it to take pictures when it started vibrating and would not stop unless I turned off the camera or put it into view mode. Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh

I have just purchased a KWorld DVD Maker 2 and set it up as per instructions and the DVD Maker itself says by pushing the button it will start flashing blue, well this does not happen and it gets very hot. I have the bigger usb end plugged into computor while my Sony video camera has only two female outlets 1 yellow the other black so I insert two cables with male adaptors to install. Where do the other leads go to or are they for other appliance uses. Please advise as I am getting frustrated


The 1 yellow and 1 black female outlets are likely for RCA Phono jacks and older VCR connections. DVD Maker sounds like you would use a camera that has USB cable to the computer and the computer writes DVDs using the Kworld DVD Maker 2.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

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 Sony Handycam DCR-HC27E Camcorder which was working great until a few days ago. my problem is its suddenly not showing my recorded tapes, I was watching footage only a few days ago from my recent holiday, the images were starting to get grey stripes across the screen, thought this was due to a low battery, put in a new one, still no images showing. Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still


The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand ta ... Digital Cameras

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg

I purchased this camera from the US and I live in Europe. Unfortunately, when I try to copy to my DVD recorder, I just get a rolling black and white screen. Is this to do with the NTSC/PAL incompatability and if so how do I go about getting a good colour picture. Thank you in advance.


Hi,Yes this is certainly a NTSC/PAL incompatibility problem. You bought the camera in the states so it will be NTSC. You need to either set the Video output to NTSC on the DVD player if it has that function. If not then you will need to c ... Panasonic D-Snap SV-AV100 Digital Camera
