Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi, i can view my previously taped videos on my JVC Digital Video Camera GR-D73AA but there is no sound & I can't tape any video as all i can see on my LCD viewer is black. I have already purchased a Head cleaning cassette which hasn't helped what else can i do? At wits end - Many thanks Toni

Hi, If you can view tapes playing back through the camera that were previously recorded using the main flip out LCD then you can be assured the LCD is actually fine. If you can, hook the camera upto a TV and playback the tapes you have to see if you have sound there. If not this will probably be related to the next section.
\015\012The problem common to a lot of digital camcorders is the when you try and record there is nothing on the LCD as you describe.
\015\012The fault is in the power cuicuit of the lens mechanism. If the lens does not activate, then the LCD will remain black.
\015\012The good news is it will more then likely be a micro fuse that has shorted that lets the power through to the lens. Without sound, there is a chance the same fuse powers both circuits.
\015\012The micro fuses look like little white strips normally, sometimes as small as 1mm and will be surface mounted.
\015\012Camera repair shops will charge quite high amounts to even look at the camera, so if possible call around for quotes, or check if it is still under any form of warranty.
\015\012Hope that helps a little anyway.
Seems like you might need to reset the camera. Try this,
\015\0121.0 Any connection from electrical point/PC.
\015\0122.0 Remove the battery
\015\012Leave your camera for at least 5 min.
\015\012Try to restart again....

I have a Canon ZR200 digital video camcoeder and there are lines that show up on my recordings. I have cleaned the heads 3 times and it has not helped. I have seen someone post that maybe the the video assembly could be replaced. Where is that and how easy is it to replace?

I have an old Video Camera, Sanyo VM-RZ2R 8mm camcorder. I can't get the cassette holder to eject.

I have some old footage of the kids and was hoping to get it copied to digital eventually. Can you help? Thanks.
